Bits and Pieces: Obituary for Josiah Womble

Russellville Courier Democrat, 3 Nov 1898:

Mr. Josiah Womble one of Pope County's oldest and best citizens died at his home in Bayliss Township Monday Oct 24th. He was perhaps the oldest educator in the county, having been an active and prominent teacher back in 1860 and '62. Mr. R Hogins and Jno R. Young of our city are some of the many prominent men of our county who were his pupils during the time of this good old man's days of usefulness. Peace to his ashes.
