Gene Conley Owens -- I took my grandmother York to John William's funeral 13 Mar 1961. He died in St. Louis, MO and he was brought back to be buried in the Taylor Cemetery in Jamestown, TN. The Freeman Funeral Home was in charge of the service. The reason I remember this so well is a Baptist preacher preached his funeral and at the end of the funeral service he made an alter call. First time I had ever seen that. I kept thinking, "What if two or three people answered his call to the alter and got down? What wold then happen to John William's body?" Would the ever get around to taking him to the cemetery to be buried? I asked Marion Freeman, owner of the funeral home, those questions and he said "good questions." And that is the end of my story.
