Boothe, I. A. "Uncle Ike"

Mr. I. A. Boothe, ("Uncle Ike" to a wide circle of close friends who knew and loved him) aged 77 years, was found dead in bed Wednesday morning at his home five miles southeast of Dardanelle. He was in good health and spirits when he retired at his customary time Tuesday night and his death is attributed to an acute heart attack.

The funeral service, conducted by Rev. F. G. Dodson and Rev. F. E. Stevenson, was held this afternoon, the burial, in charge of the Cornwell Funeral Home, being in New Hope Cemetery. Mr. Boothe, a native of Mississippi, had been a resident of this community for nearly sixty years. He was a substantial farmer and stockraiser, a leader in his chosen avocation, and a man of great usefulness and worth to his community. No immediate blood relatives survive Mr. Boothe, but Mrs. T. B. Bolin, who with her husband, reside on the Boothe farm, is an adopted daughter. Mr. Charley Dodd, of near Mt. Nebo, was also raised by Mr. and Mrs. Booth, the latter of whom passed away in 1917. The death of a man like "Uncle Ike" Boothe is a distinct loss to his community, his County and his State, and all who knew him are saddened, and grieved at his going.
