Layman,  of Dalton City, Ill., and several nieces and nephews.  Carl Swango,  who operates the Strand barber shop in this city, is one of the grandchildren.
          Mr. Layman was a member of the Shelbyville Baptist church and was a former member of Kiowa Tribe No. 199 of this city.
          The funeral will be held at the C. F. Fix and Son mortuary Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock, with Dr. A. E. Cowley, pastor of the First Baptist church of this city, officiating.  Friends may call at the mortuary any time after 5:00 o'clock this afternoon.
