James F. Mills, 1868-1921, buried in Sec ENE, Row 25, Lot 111, is James Ford Mills, son of George W. & Mary A. He was owner of a plumbing store in Princeton and lived at 701 E. Spruce St, in the home of his parents, until he was 42. That's when he married a French-American woman from New Albany, named Easter Lily Goodbub. She lived on into the 1940's in Michigan, but I lose track of her about 1945 and don't know where she is buried. Here's the obit I found on the New Albany Floyd County Library website for James:


New Albany Daily Ledger 07-06-1921 p1c2 DEATH OF JAMES MILLS. Mr. Louis Goodbub, of this city, returned home this morning from Princeton where he attended the funeral of his

son-in-law, Mr. James F. Mills, who died last Sunday morning and was buried Tuesday morning. Mr. Mills was in the plumbing business and was a prominent business man of Princeton. His death was the result of asthma and heart trouble of which he had been suffering continually for some time. He was 46 years of age and a member of the United

Brethren church of which his wife was organist. Besides his wife, he leaves two children, one boy and one girl, to mourn his loss.
