James Bayne

James Bayne was born in Newark, Delaware, Jan. 3, 1849 and was called to great beyond Jan. 30, 1920 being 71 years and 17 days old.

In 1853, his father the late Esquire Bayne, being tempted by the opportunities of the middle west, left Newark and came to Galena, Ill. He resided in Galena only three years, and in 1856 the family moved to Warren, where the deceased spent the remainder of his life, with the exception a few of the closing years which were lived in Kansas City, Mo.

In 1870 Mr. Bayne was united in marriage to Miss Josephine Tuttle of Warren. To this union two children were born: Harry M. Bayne and Mrs. E.K. Glover, both of Kansas City, Mo.

The decedent was a man of high ideals and was conscientious in strict adherence of those principles. Where-ever he was employed he merited appreciation for faithfulness and efficiency. For many years he was in the employ of the Illinois Central railroad, later Superintendent of the Elliot factory:, and still later was selected for that responsible position of Adjusting Claim Agent for the Missouri Pacific railroad.

For upwards of two years Mr. Bayne has been unable to be actively employed. Bodily infirmities with age accumulated, until finally the end came and he quietly laid down to take a rest from all earthly toll.

Mr. Bayne's remains were brought from Kansas City for interment in the family lot in Elmwood cemetery. The burial services were conducted in the parental home occupied by Mrs. Mary Hilliard sister of the deceased, Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. Rev. A. D. Moore and the Masons officiated with J. L Graham as funeral director.

The editor wishes to add a few words in the tribute to Mr. Bayne, who for years was a warm, personal friend of the family. The sorrow the we experienced upon learning of his demise was no doubt felt by the many, many friends in this community.

Pleasant memories of his life abide with those who knew him during the years he was a respected citizen of Warren. By his lifes conceptions of sincerity and integrity have been intensified and strengthened. Incentives to do right at all times have been enriched by the example led by "Jimmie" Bayne, who linked himself to the highest values of life.

The sympathy of the Warren friends is extended to the wife, son and daughter, whose hearts are saddened by the taking away of the beloved husband and father.
