Obituary of Charles Alexander Grim

From the MADISON COUNTY DEMOCRAT, March 1, 1932

Brother of County Resident Dies

Charles A. Grim, aged 85 years, a brother of Howard S. Grim of Mt. Sterling, died at his home in Eber, Wednesday afternoon at 12:15 o'clock. Infirmities of old age caused his death. He had been confined to his bed the past three weeks.

Mr. Grim was one of the older prominent citizens of Fayette County. At one time, he was engaged in the grocery business at Parrett's Station and later engaged in farming.

Two daughters, Mrs. Myrtle Sollars, of Eber, Miss Bessie Marie, at home, and four sons, Carey A. Grim of Huntington, W. Va., Floyd H. and John W. of Columbus, Howard S. of Mt. Sterling, and Arthur E. Grim of Washington C.H., survive.

The funeral was held Friday afternoon at four o'clock at the home followed by burial in the Madison Mills Cemetery.

[The Madison County Democrat was obviously lax in gathering facts. Charles A. Grim was the FATHER of Howard S. Grim, not a brother.]
