Benton Co. Sun, June 13, 1907

James WOODS, one of the oldest and most respected citizens of Benton Co., died at his home near Seba last Mon. the 10th, at the age of 76 yrs. His funeral was held here at the Presbyterian Church of which he had been a member and elder for several years. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Baker, the pastor. The remains were taken to the WOODS cemetery east of town for interment. Deceased leaves a large number of relatives throughout the county. His friends were limited only by his acquaintance. Indeed a good man has gone from earth.

Benton Co. Sun, June 20, 1907

On the tenth day of June 1907 Mr. James WOODS passed from this life in the 76th year of his age. On the following day a large congregation attended the funeral services at the Bentonville Presbyterian Church and a long procession of relatives and friends followed to the WOODS' cemetery three miles east of town, where his remains were interred. Mr. WOODS was born in Marshal Co., TN, Jan 15th, 1831. He moved with his father to Benton Co., AR in 1840. During the war he was converted under the preaching of Mr. Buchanan and joined the presbyterian church at Bentonville soon after the war. On Apr 18, 1873 he became Ruling Elder in his church and has served in that capacity for 34 consectutive years. He leaves behind to mourn their loss a devoted wife, a brother and sister, four children, 21 grandchildren, 2 great-grand children and a host of friends and relatives.

Benton Co. Democrat June 13, 1907

James WOODS died at his home near Centerton last Monday morning, June 10th, 1907, aged about 76 years. He had been in failing health for some time past and his death was not unexpected. Mr. WOODS was one of the oldest citizens of this county, was well known and highly esteemed by a multitude of people; in fact no man in the county was considered his superior in morality, uprightness and integrity, and his passing away has caused universal regret throughout this entire county. The funeral services were held at 10:00 a.m., Tues. morning at the Presbyterian Church in this city, the deceased having been a zealous member of that church for many years. The remains were interred in the WOODS burying ground, four miles east of here. There services at the church were attended by a large congregation and the procession to the burying ground was one of the longest ever seen in this city, which is evidence of the high esteem in which the deceased was held. We extend sympathy to the bereft family and relatives.
