Alexander Ray Campbell

 ONE OF TOWN’S OLDER RESIDENTS IS GONE

In the death of ex-County Judge A. R. Campbell, which occurred at midnight, Sunday, at his home on East Baldwin avenue, DeFuniak loses one of her older citizens–old both in years, and in length of residence in this city.

Funeral services were held Monday morning at the late home of the deceased, the services being in charge of Dr. G. Hunter Norwood of the Presbyterian church, assisted by Rev. J. David Simpson. The remains were interred in Magnolia cemetery, the active pall bearers being W. O. Campbell, G. H. Campbell, Curry Douglass, W. T. Ray, D. G. Ray and Emery Campbell. Honorary pall bearers included Capt. Hightower, W. L. Cawthon, L. S. Cleveland, L. H. Atwell, J. C. McSween and B. C. Davis.

A choir composed of Miss Emma Campbell, Mrs. Sowell, Roy Morris, and G. F. Carden, sang “Nearer, My God, to Thee,” and “Asleep In Jesus.”

Mr. Campbell, who had served several terms as county judge, and filled other offices of confidence and trust in the [community], had amassed during his long years of residence here, a host of friends who mourn his death.
