The Caddo Herald
November 8, 1901
The many friends of Mr. J. T. Estes were made sad last Sunday, October 27, 1901 on hearing of his death. Mr. Estes was born in Camden County, Missouri, November 11, 1878, married to Miss Sallie Mullens, October 4, 1897 at Caddo, Indian Territory.
After a lingering illness of several weeks’ intense suffering, Mr. Estes gave evidence on Friday before his death on Sunday that he was prepared for eternity.
After a short funeral service conducted by the pastor of the Baptist church, the remains were laid to rest in the Caddo Cemetery.
Mr. Estes leaves a wife and child to mourn his death. May the blessing of a gracious God ever be upon them and may they meet the husband and father in a blissful beyond. C. F. M.
