Alfrey - James Fletcher


Source: Waveland Independent 5-25-1917

James F. ALFREY, a former citizen, died at his home in Crawfordsville Sunday at noon. Mr. Alfrey had been in poor health for a long time, starting with his being struck by lightning several years ago. This induced a partial paralysis from which he never recovered and latterly this had been growing worse. Funeral services at the Crawfordsville Christian Church on Tuesday afternoon were conducted by Rev. R.E. Moss and Rev. W.H. Kerr. Interment at Oak Hill.

Mr. Alfrey was born in Ripley county but came to this county in early life to work for the late Henry Alfrey. He was an expert timber man and put in many years buying staves and other timber in Arkansas and Missouri. He also farmed. He lived several years in Waveland moving thence to a farm near Crawfordsville, after which he bought the property where he died.

In early life he married Mary E. Harrell. Their three children survive: John Alfrey of Ladoga, Mrs. Joseph Smock of Ft. Wayne and Mrs. Morton Crabb of Denver, Colo. After her death he married Mary E. McMains of this place, who survives him. He was an active member of the Christian Church while a resident here, transferring his membership to Crawfordsville after moving there. He was of an optomistic disposition and included to take a cheerful view of the vicissitudes of life, and leaves many friends in this place.
