Onslow—December 10—Funeral services for James Warren, 82, who died Sunday in his home here, were held in the Presbyterian church at 2 o'clock this afternoon. Burial was in Mineral cemetery.
Mr. Warren had been in failing health for many years but his death was unexpected.
He was a native Iowan, having been in Dubuque when that city was a logging village. Upon attaining manhood, he helped his father in following the work of rafting logs on the Mississippi river. He came to Jones county when 21 years old and operated a steam mill, sawing logs for the community of Onslow.
After his marriage to Loisa Conley, he purchased a farm a short distance north of Steam Mill Corners and they remained there until 1912 when they moved into Onslow.
The couple celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary July 3, 1935.
Mr. Warren is survived by his widow; two sons, Eugene of California and Ben of Onslow; two daughters, Hulda Allen of Onslow and Alka Keister of Canton; six grand-children and five great-grandchildren.
The deceased was active in the rural Methodist church. He was an active democrat in this community.
