Mrs. H. M. McAfee, one of the most prominent women of the Salvisa section, died Wednesday night after suffering many months with a complication of diseases. She was a lovable and noble character and her death has caused deep regret among a wide circle of friends. In early girlhood she united with the Christian Church and has been devoted to its faith ever since. Her funeral was held at the family residence Saturday morning at 11 o’clock, conducted by Rev. R. N. Simpson, of this city, and the interment was in the Providence Cemetery. Many beautiful floral offerings testified to the love in which she was held by all who knew her. Besides her husband she is survived by a daughter, Mrs. H. F. Milton, and her mother, Mrs. M. E. James, and by one brother, Mr. F. I. James, and several sisters, Mrs. Annie Gritton, all of Salvisa, Mrs. J. F. Redford, of Louisville, and Mrs. J. W. Gilliam and Miss Sarah James, of Harrodsburg.
