Funeral services will be held at Wilmore, KY on Friday, March 27 for the Rev.

the present day Morrison Park. The park, founded by Rev. Morrison, was originally established as “Pentecostal Park.”  Achievements, honors, and effects of his active career are of common knowledge to his thousands of friends throughout this section of the state, as well as across the nation.

Mr. Lacy Burton Doyle passed away early Tuesday morning, March 26,  at the Community Hospital, where he had been a patient only since last Friday although he had been in ill health for some time.  Mr. Doyle was born near Cave City on May 2, 1855, son of Gregg and Rettie Gardner Doyle.  He was prominent in political circles in Barren County and had served as Deputy Sheriff for eight years.  In 1937 he was elected Sheriff and served four years, having completed his term less than three months ago.  At the time of his death, he was County Tax Collector.  His church membership was with the Glasgow Baptist Church, where his funeral service was conducted by Rev. Sam Ed Bradley.  Burial was in the Glasgow Cemetery.
