Mayfield Services Held Here Monday

The body of James Andrew Mayfield, 69, was found Friday in his room at the Bridle and Saddle club in Wichita where he had lived for 13 years and death was said to have resulted from heavy blows on the head. The death weapon was not found and police are looking for the murderer of Mr. Mayfield. A hoof file is sought as the death weapon. An autopsy was to be held this morning.

Mayfield was crippled and had not been able to work full time since 1946, employees of the farm said.

Mayfield was born in Wheeling, W.Va., and went to Wichita in 1938. He was a retired oil field employee. Among his survivors are two brothers, Will Mayfield, Wheeling, and Nim Mayfield, Bridgeport, Ill., a sister-in-law, Mrs. Inez Mayfield, Augusta, and a number of nephews who reside in Augusta.

He had resided in Greenwood county and is a former member of the I.O.O.F lodge.

Funeral rites will be held at the Dunsford chapel here Monday at 2 p.m. with interment in Elmwood cemetery. Rev. B.W. Thomas will conduct the service.
