On Sunday afternoon James Holcomb, one of Pine Valley’s oldest residents, was suddenly taken ill and died.
James Holcomb, generally known as “Old Jimmy Holcomb,” was living in the valley over 20 years ago when some of the present inhabitants came here, and was then considered an old-timer. He was very old and unable to hear at the time of his death.
