James Monroe “Roy” MCKINNEY

McKinney aka Hailey Cemetery
Barry County,

28 Jul 1882
12 Feb 1904

Saturday, Feb. 13, 1904, Cassville Democrat - Friday morning, Feb. 12, 1904, as the light of another day was peeping from over the eastern hills, the angel of earth visited James Monroe McKinney and the spirit took flight to the realms of the great unknown, after eight days of illness of pneumonia, at the home of his uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. N. L. Hailey, age 21 years, 6 months, and 13 days. All that mortal hands could do for Roy's relief was done by loving relatives and friends, but in vain. One year ago, Jan. 1, 1903, Roy accepted a position as Recorder Galloway's official deputy Recorder and faithfully discharged his duties in that position, and had made many friends by his gentlemanly ways and prompt attention to business. He was a son of Edward and Alive (Hailey) McKinney and was born at Hailey Post Office, July 28, 1882. He was a regular attendant at the Union Sunday School and taught a class of young ladies, who were very much attached to him. Wherever Roy was known sadness prevails the household. The remains were laid to rest in the McKinney Cemetery near Hailey Post Office, today, Saturday with the honors of the Modern Woodman and Royal Neighbor societies. The remains will leave this city, today, Saturday, at 9 a. m. and the interment will take place as soon as they can be conveyed to that place. Funeral services were held Friday at 2:30 p.m., by Rev. McCracken at the residence of N. L. Hailey in this city.
