Death of Mr. Ensor
Mr. J. B. Ensor, one of Washington County’s oldest and most highly respected citizens, died at his home at McIntire last Sunday of Bright’s disease, aged seventy-nine years. Mr. Ensor had been a sufferer for over two years, his relatives and friends realized from the start that a cure of the disease was hopeless.
Mr. Ensor was one of the oldest, as well as one of the most devout, members of the Hardin Creek Baptist Church, and in his death that church sustains a great loss. The deceased was charitable and kind, and his death is not only mourned by his immediate family, but by a host of friends who had learned to love him.
He leaves a wife and nine children, to whom friends extend sincerest condolence. Mr. J. C. Ensor, of the livery firm of Ensor, Boblitt & Brown, is a son of the deceased.
Funeral services were conducted at the Baptist Church in Springfield, Monday morning at 11 o’clock by Rev. R. L. Purdom, after which interment occurred in Cemetery Hill.
J. B. Ensor, born December 26, 1827, died October 30, 1905
