Trigg's Oldest Citizen Dead
End Comes to "Uncle Jim" McIntosh Near Canton Tuesday Morning
Would Have Been A Hundred had He Lived Until the 15th of Next June
Mr. J. W. McIntosh, Trigg county's oldest citizen, died at his home a few miles above Canton on Cumberland river Tuesday morning at four o'clock. Infirmities to his long years upon earth caused his death.
"Uncle Jim" as he was affectionately called by his hosts of friends was born on the 16th of June, 1827, and had he lived until next June he would have celebrated his one hundredth birthday.

He was a native of Eddyville, Lyon county, having been born in a house that stood on the spot where the state penitentiary now stands. He came with the family when a lad to Trigg county and had since resided near Canton.

The wife a Miss Williams before their marriage, died some thirty years ago, and a large family of children was the result of that union. The living children are: William and Frank McIntosh, of Malden, Mo; George McIntosh, of Knoxville, Tenn., and Mrs. Clell Calhoun, of Trigg county. He had many other descendants - grand children and great grandchildren.

For a number of years past his birthdays had been notable events in his community, and on last June several hundred people assembled at the home to make merry on the occasion, and the old gentleman entered into the spirit of the occasion and expressed confidence in being able to pass the century mark. It is much regretted that he was not able to do so.

He had lived the life of a farmer and lived quietly and enjoyed the association of his neighbors and those near him. He was interested in conversation and delighted in the association of friends and loved ones and a spirit of humor always added charm to his company.

He retained remarkable control of his faculties until the end. He had been rather deaf for some time but his mind remained clear, and he was able to engage in conversation with those who called at his home to pay a visit.
