    On Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 7th at 5 o'clock, at his home one mile west of Warnerton, Dr. J. S. Brock, aged 60 years, died after an illness lasting thru one and a half years. Dr. Brock was the youngest son of Valentine Brock a pioneer citizen of Washington Parish, and succeeded to the old Brock home where he lived his entire life, amassed a splendid competency and raised a large family. Besides having one of the most profitable farms in the parish Dr. Brock was a physician with a large practice which he enjoyed for thirty-five years. The practice of medicine led him into all the homes within a radius of many miles and being of a jovial as well as a sympathetic and inderstanding[sic] disposition, he made friends of the whole countryside and his great popularity and the esteem in which he and his family were held was attested by the throng of 800 or 900 people who gathered at the old home on Thursday to attend the funeral services. He is survived by a wife, Mrs. Arvia Holmes Brock and seven children, Dr. J. L. Brock our much loved and faithful physician at Franklinton, Dr. D. T. Brock who is a practicing physician in McComb, Miss., and Hobson a 13 year old son, who is in school in McComb, Mrs. Jas. McClendon, of Jackson, Miss., with her unmarried sister, Miss Lena Brock who is making her home there, Mrs. Dora Knight of McComb, and Bessie, the youngest daughter who is still with her mother. A sweet home service was conducted by Rev. J. J. Walker, pastor of the Franklinton Baptist church of which Dr. Brock was a member, and the body was intered[sic] in the family burying ground in a beautiful oak grove about one hundred yards in front of the residence, overlooking a bluff of Bogue Chitto river. Pall bearers were J. N. Simmons, S. A. Alford, Willis Brumfield and Newt McElveen, all life long friends and neighbors. Dr. Brock had accepted his affliction in the sweetest possible spirit and a short time before his death had expressed himself as perfectly resigned and ready to go at the Masters call.
