The funeral services over the body of the late Rev. Henry P. Mock of Anthony were held Sunday afternoon from the Methodist Episcopal Church, Rev. H.W. Cummings officiating. Interment took place in the family lot in Spring Grove Cemetery. In the death of Rev. Mock Anthony has lost one of her oldest and respected citizens, a man who has been active in all forms of community activity. He was especially active in church work, G.A.R. activities, and Masonic work. Rev. Mock had many friends in and about Anthony. The following obituary was written by one who knew him intimately: Rev. Henry P. Mock was born in Robeson County, N.C., Dec. 14, 1840. Died at Fair Valley, Oklahoma, Oct. 9, 1919, at the age of 78 years, 9 months, 25 days.

In 1871 he was licensed to preach in that church. In 1872 he started west, stopping two years in Missouri, and coming to Kansas in 1874. On August 27, 1874, he was married to Miss Julia A. Miller in Lawrence County, Missouri. Since those early days he has made his home in Kansas rearing his family, largely in and near Anthony. The wife of his youth passed away April 25, 1913, in this city. They were the parents of eleven children, five of whom preceded the father in death, most of them in infancy. Those living are: Mrs. Mary A. Michael, of Grand Junction, Colorado; Chas. Mock, Quinlan, Oklahoma; Lula Michael of this city; Josephine Shaffer, Pratt, Kansas; and Troy Mock, of Anthony. He leaves four brothers, Asbury Mock, of Anthony; John Mock, of Colorado; James Mock, of California; and Phillip Mock, of Ellis County, Kansas. He first enlisted in the service of his country in 1862, as a cavalryman, and started north from Jefferson County, Tennessee, when he was taken prisoner and spent several months in a southern prison at Madison, Georgia. His health was broken for a year. In 1863 he again entered the army service in the 9th Tennessee Cavalry, doing scout duty. During the last year of the war he served in Co. A, 8th Reg. Tenn Val. Cavalry. During this time he was engaged in twelve hard battles of the war. He was wounded in one. He has always taken an active interest in the G.A.R. work. He was also an active member of the Masonic order, but the activity which he was especially interested in was his church work. He has been an active member of this church since an early day. Faithful to her services, loyal to her policy and clean and Christlike in his character. He was a friendf to everybody. Although through some oversight in the conference for which he was not responsible, he failed to be ordained, he never hesitated to do his full duty as a Christian man. During all these years he has been relicensed each year by the conference as a local preacher. His body was interred Spring Grove Cemetery in Anthony, Harper County, Kansas.

Her body was interred in Riverside Cemetery in Dillon, Dillon County, South Carolina. The following newspaper article about him was published: Few men have the tact in making friends and retaining their friendship as the subject of this sketch. Born and raised on the farm a few miles north of Rowland, N.C. His early life, though uneventful, yet doing his share in the maintenance of a large family, he lost no opportunity to store his mind with useful, practical knowledge that in late years developed the farmer boy into an honorable, trustworthy business man. Mr. Bracey was among the pioneer settlers in Dillon, he has been continuously in the mercantile business ever since. In 1904 the block on which his store stood was burned out, his building was the last to succumb to the flames. His loss was heavy, but the spirit that never says die was in him, and now where charred timber and ashes were left stands a commodious brick store, the present headquarters of the growing business that he has built. A just estimate of the esteem in which Mr. Bracey is held by his fellow citizens is shown by his election as alderman in every administration since Dillon was incorporated, save one he refused to serve on. Mr. Bracey is peculiar as to his evenness of temper, never was seen on the war-path or after an enemy's scalp. His kindly face is a true index of the nobleness and sincerity of the man. Not only being liberal in his dealings, charitable to appeals of distress, but is a wise councilor and his friends often appeal to his unbiased court for guidance in adjusting perplexing problems in business transactions between his friends. Mr. Bracey is of the Presbyterian faith, a Calvinist of the deepest dye with an unshakened belief in "the final perseverance of the Saints." Just in the prime of life with a bright future ahead; the confidence and respect of all with whom he comes in contact with, but more especially by those who know him best. His prospect for length of days were never better and there is no reason why his dreams should not roam over elysian fields and drink the delights reserved for only those whose conscience is at rest.
