James Henry Bryant died Thursday morning at 4 o'clock after a period of ill health, which terminated suddenly. He was born in Richmond October 26, 1845, the youngest of fourteen children. Surviving relatives are a brother of Richmond, His wife, three children, Clinton E., of California, Mrs. Homer Prior, of Williston, and George O., of Providence, R. I., and five grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. Mr. and Mrs. Bryant were given a golden anniversary by their many friends Feb. 22, 1916.

He enlisted at the age of 18 in the Union Army, from Richmond, and was soon transferred to the brigade band, and as a cornetist served during the entire war. He was a faithful member and official of the local Methodist church. The sympathy of the entire community will be with the bereaved family.
