Obituary of L. C. Price, Lexington, Kentucky.

L. C. Price, the master of Penmoken Stock Farm, of Lexington, Ky., died suddenly on the night of December 14, 1915, at the age of sixty-five years. He was born in Jessamine County, but was engaged in business in Lexington for many years. After retiring from active business, in 1899, he devoted his attention to his stock farm, which he made famous for its Shetland ponies. They were exhibited throughout the State, winning many prizes, and sold in all sections of the United States.

HIs wife, who was Miss Mary Mason, of Mississippi, survives him with a son, L. C. Price, Jr. Mr. Price was a member of the Christian Church and was universally esteemed.

Of his father's service as a soldier of the Confederacy, the son writes: "My father said very little of his career in the war; I do not think he was a regularly regularly enlisted soldier, being only eleven years old when the war broke out. I think that he ran away several times with General Morgan's command, but he was always sent back on account of his youth. He was a captain of guards after the war and was active in suppressing negro riots. On one occasion he faced a mob of about two hundred of them single-handed and cut his way through with his saber to join his command."
