    The subject of this sketch, Dr. James Monroe Brock, who died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Andrew Fortenberry, December 21, 1916, should have more than passing notice. Dr. Brock was born March 25, 1854, in the old Vol Brock home near Dillon's Bridge in Pike County, Mississippi, where his boyhood was spent on the farm. When he was about 19 years old he was married to Miss Armetha Holmes, and for several years lived near the home of his birth. Eight children were born to this union, Jeptha Vol, the oldest, who is the efficient District Attorney of the 26th Judicial District; Jasper S., Assistant Bank Examiner of Louisiana; Ollie E. Brock, prominent merchant of Mt. Hermon; Dr. Lucius W. Brock, practicing physician of Mt. Hermon; Mrs. W. E. Banister of Mt. Hermon; and Mrs. Andrew Fortenberry, of Scanlon, La., two having preceded him to the grave. About 28 years ago he moved with his family to Mt. Hermon. At this time he was a practicing physician and did almost all the practice of the entire community with marked success. The writer heard another physician say that Dr. Brock was more successful in certain lines of his work than any physician he had ever known, and no matter who called, he was always ready to respond. Money was not his first consideration. He became a great reader and while not a politician he kept up with the leading issues of the day, was every foremost in the upbuilding of the country, and especially was he zealous in educational matters and did everything he could to build and maintain good schools in this community. He was married the second time at Grand Cane, La., Nov. 6, 1911, to Miss Fannie McMichael, who survives him with one child, Eloise, aged 4 years. He was a consistent member of the Baptist church, having joined at the old Silver Creek church when quite young, and afterwards moved his membership to the Mt. Hermon church, of which he remained a member until his death. Few have died in this community who will be missed like Dr. Brock. The remains were laid to rest in the cemetery at the Mt. Hermon Baptist church, Thursday, December 21, 1916. He was buried with Masonic honors. A large crowd of sorrowing relatives and friends were present to pay their last respects to one whom they loved. The funeral rites were conducted by Rev. Hudson, assisted by Reverands C. T. Corkern and J. A. McCormack.
