Cherokee Municipal Cemetery

1890 - July 8, 1925

James Rackley, who has been ill at the home of his parents in the city for several months, died July 8. His death was due to a complication of diseases brought on by the flu, from which he never was able to recover.

"Jim," as he was familiarly known, was a graduate of the Northwestern Teachers College and during the time he went to school he made hundreds of friends by his kindly smile and cheering words for everyone.

After his graduation he taught school and was cashier of a bank at Pond Creek and also at Cherokee at various times. Last year he was Principal of the schools at Mangum, at which place he contracted the disease which finally resulted in his death.

The body was taken to Cherokee where the funeral was held at the Methodist Church, Saturday afternoon.
