In Reply to: Death Notice Lookup Americus Times Recorder by Judith Gresham of 353

The film machine at the Library cannot copy but I hand copied the Obit as follows:
Death of Mrs J P Duncan -- This estimable Christin lady died at 8:30 o'clock last night at her home near this city after a brief illness. The deceased was the daughter of Mr Thomas Gresham, to whom, with the sorrowing husband, the sympathies of a large number of friends will be extended. The funeral services will take place at 3:30 o'clock this afternoon at Oak Grove Cemetery to which an invitation is extended, the friends of the sorrowful family.

Also from the Americus Weekly Recorder Friday 25 Apr 1890: Mr J P Duncan, of Stewart County, was married on Thursday night last to Miss Lizzie Grisham, in this city, at the residence of the bride's father on Forrest Street. Rev A B Campbell officiating.

From Sumter County Marriages: Duncan, James P to Gresham, M E 17 Apr 1890 Book 10, Page 160.

From "Sumter County Cemeteries" by Jack and Earline Cox:
Unmarked Graves Oak Grove Cemetery. Duncan, J P "no dates"

This may help or it may confuse.
