The Carter County Herald, September 16, 1926 AGED CITIZEN PASSES Lafayette J. Enix, born May 28, 1850. Passed from this life to eternity at his home three miles north of this city on Trough Camp, Sunday September 12, 1926 at 11:30 P.M., after a lingering illness of some time with Bright's disease. He had not been in good health for years and had been for the past few years almost an invalid, but his energy to be up and going kept him from being in the bed with his disease much longer than he was. Before his death he expressed a desire to get well several times, but said if it was God's will, he was ready to go when He called. He leaves two sisters, Mrs. Julia Gorman of this city, and Susan Gham at home, and one son, Herbert Enix, who made his home with him. His last brother before him departed this life just one year and one day ago, and he was the last one left of the boys of probably one of the best known families of Carter County. The funeral services were conducted at the home on Tuesday afternoon by Rev. John Garvin, after which the remains were laid to rest in the Miller Cemetery, close by.
