A.J. Jessee Died Sunday Afternoon

A.J. Jessee, farmer and sucessful business man, died Sunday afternoon at his home at Jessee's Mill, Russell county, following an illness of several weeks.
During the last few days of his illness he developed flu, but was not considered dangerously ill, and his death came as a shock to friends over the county.
Mr. Jessee, 83 years, 8 months and 7 days of age, was a remarkable man in many respects-his memory being perfect and he was all business until the day before his death. If any one wanted to know what the cattle market was on any day a year back Mr. Jessee could give it to them in a flash from memory; he had been so wise in the management of his affairs that he had accumulated a big estate which will be shared by his three children, Mrs. T.L. Bundy, Mr. Wiley Jessee, of Russell and Mr. Ed Jessee, of Missouri, and the widow who survived him.
The deceased fought on the Confederate side during the Civil War and was a fine soldier, participating in many battles.
The funeral waiting the arrival of the absent son, Ed Jessee, from Missouri, was held Wednesday at 2 o'clock p.m.
