The Venerable Methodist Minister And Father Of S.S. Scott, Died At Fulton Sunday Rev. James M. Scott, of Fulton, died
last Sunday evening.
He was the father of S.s. Scott, well known in this city. The Paduacah News-Democrat of Monday contained the following account of his life and death.
"Death removed from our midst last night one of the most lovable and honored characters. This person was Rev. James M. Scott, the venerable Methodist minister. The Master claimed his own shortly after seven o'clock last night and Rev. Scott was called to the great reward that has been awaiting him for many years. He died peacefully proclaiming the words and gospel of his maker and with the sentence, "I am resting on the arm of the Lord," he entered into the peaceful sleep to wake no more on this earth, a sleep tht comes to us all when the Master is ready, and what a pity we are not all ready, as was this grand old man. For many days Rev. Scott has been sinking and the family realized that he had a few more days with them, but his death was such a shock and the bereaved ones have the sympathy of the entire acquaintance in the loss of so noble a father.
Rev. J.M. Scott was 86 years of age and has been preaching the gospel for 53 years and was a former pastor of the Methodist church, here, his charge being at Bolivar. He was superanuated by the Memphis conference two years ago and returned to Fulton with his family just recently.
Complication of bowel complaint and heart failure was the direct cause of his demise. Caldwell County 1904
