James Dudley Ware Obituary, 1907

Of Councleman James Dudley Ware

Sunday Morning

Buried Yesterday With The
Honors of The Knights of Pythias Orders

Mr. James Dudley Ware died
Sunday morning at eleven o’clock
from an attack of heart failure,
following a spell of illness that had
kept him in his bed most of the time
for two months past. He became
much worse Saturday, but the public
was not apprised of the change
in his condition and the news of his
death came as a shock to his friends.
M.r Ware was a son of the late
W. W. Ware and was in the 60th
year of his age. He was prominent
as a business man and represented
the Second ward in the city council,
having served in that capacity
several terms in recent years. Mr
Ware leaves two daughters, Misses
Tony and Bettie Ware and two
younger sons, Fairleigh and Wallace Ware.

Funeral services were held by Ever-
green lodge, Knights of Pythias,
of which he was a member, after
Dr. W. L. Nourse had conducted a
short prayer service at the family
residence on South Virginia street
yesterday morning.
The honorary pall bearers were
Messrs F. W. Dabney, E. M. Flack,
J. T. Wall, E. B. Long, C. H. Bush,
Ge. E. Gary, W. F. Garnett and
Chas. M. Meacham.
There were many floral tributes
and a large procession of sympathetic
friends followed the body to its
resting place in Riverside Cemetery.
