Funeral services were held at Pendleton church at Doe Run at three o'clock Wednesday afternoon by Rev. Wm. Adams. Interment was in Pendleton cemetery.

The deceased was born un Reynolds County, Mo., on Sep. 20, 1870, son of the late William and Hulda Bullock Chatman. In March, 1893, he was united in marriage to Mary Jackson, of Annapolis, Mo. To this union one son, Edward, was born. The wife and mother passed away in 1894. On March 20, 1896, he was united in marriage to Martha Scaggs, of Doe Run, Mo. To this union eleven children were born, three of whom, Ernest, Ida, and Mattie, proceeded the father in death. The surviving children are Edward, of Flat River; Elmer, of St. Louis; Mary (Mrs. J. A.) Wilkerson, of Hogan; Oscar of Farmington; Nolis, of St. Louis; Lonis, Otto, Mildred and Lola, at home.

Chatman, of Mapleton, Oregon; Gentry Chatman, of Springfield, Oregon, and Jenee Chatman, of Leadwood, Mo.

The deceased took sick last fall and shortly afterward went to St. Louis where he could receive treatment from a specialist. On Dec. 20th (1930), he underwent an operation at the Rernard Hospital in St. Louis. For a time following the operation his condition seemed to be much improved, but later it became worse again. On last Friday he sustained a paralytic stroke involving his left side from which he never rallied.

Mr. Chatman united with the Church of Christ at Cartee about 27 years ago. He had lived in this county for more than 30 years and on the farm where he passed away for more than 20 years. He was a good husband, a kind an indulgent father, a sincere Christian, good neighbor and true friend - quiet and unassuming, but very industrious. His family and the community have indeed lost a member that will be greatly missed.

The - News joins in extending deepest sympathy to all his loved ones in their great sorrow.
