Madisonville Democrat, (Monroe Co. TN) Wednesday, September 25, 1929:
“Mr. Bill Lynn McKee---On Thursday morning, September 19, at the dawn of day, the death angel entered the home of Mr. Bill McKee and claimed as its victim the husband and father, Mr. LynnMcKee. He passed away almost without a struggle. He had been ill for some time, and had told his loved ones the day before he died that he “had a home and it paid for.” He bore his sufferings without a murmur and was so patient when asked how he felt he would always say, “I am better.” Mr. Lynn was married in the year 1898 to Miss Annie Ingram. To this union was born nine children, three of whom died in infancy. He leaves to mourn their loss, his widow and six children; Mrs. Floyd Russell, Mrs. Bill Riggs, Mrs. Wiley Garner, Miss Maud Lynn, Messrs. Fonzo and George Lynn, and twelve grandchildren, besides a host of friends. He was 61 years old. He once carried the mail on horseback from Sweetwater to Brakebill. He always seemed to be happy and contented. He had the best attention that loving hands could give, and the waiting physicians, but all to no avail. He was laid to rest in Oak Grove Cemetery. Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Charlie Seagles. Mr. Lynn had been a member of the Baptist Church for several years. The parting was hard, but his loved ones realized that if they live as God would have them live, some day they can go and live with him where there will be no more parting, no more sorrow---God will wipe all tears away. Be comforted, troubled hearts, all may be reunited on the “Happy Golden Shore.” May God bless the bereaved family.---A Friend.
