Died, at the family home, near Lawtell, last Saturday morning, Charles Thompson Bihm, aged 74 years. The funeral was held Sunday morning at the Lawtell Catholic church and interment in the Catholic cemetery in Opelousas.
Mr. Bihm was one of the old residents of the Plaquemine Ridge neighborhood and his absence will be keenly felt by the family, neighbors and friends. In every sense was he a splendid example of good citizenship. A native of St. Landry, he was a member of one of the oldest families. We tender our condolences to the family of the deceased.
