Mr. P.C. Porter Dead
Mr. P.C. Porter died at his home in the North part of town about 7:30 o'clock after a short illness of pneumonia and his remains were interred in the Lynch cemetery in the North part of the county, Thursday afternoon his pastor, Rev. H.B. Cash of Cumby, conducting the funeral services in the presence of a large concourse of relatives and friends. Mr. Porter had been a resident of our little city for about eight or ten months, moving here from his farm in the Lynch community. He was seventy-three years of age, a member of the Christian church, a good straight forward citizen and numbered his friends by the score in the neighborhood where he lived most of his life and reared a large family. He is survived by the following children, his wife having preceded him to the unknown world: Mr. R.J Porter, Mrs. J.R. Cunningham, C.E. Porter, W.T. Porter, J.F. Porter and Miss Vivian Porter, all of this county and Mrs. Mattie Young of Yantis, all of whom were with him in his last illness. The Leader joins with the family in extending sympathy to the sorrowing ones. ---Rains County Leader, March 23, 1923
