From “The Dayton Herald” dated July 9, 1931:
Dr. Gentry Cash, 44 years of age, the son of the Rev. James I. Cash of Spring City, who died of heart trouble at his home near Chicago last Saturday morning was buried in the Spring City cemetery Wednesday morning, following services at the home of his father.
As a boy Dr. Cash was identified with Spring City and had many devoted friends there. He graduated from Emory and Henry College and later from Johns Hopkins University and in 1913 became identified as a scientist with the Standard Oil Co. His rise in the business world, was rapid and at his death he was a director of the Standard Oil Co. of Indiana.
Dr. Cash is survived by his widow, Mr.s Helen Calhoun Cash and by his father, the latter a retired minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. That he had many friends both in his business world and at Spring City was attested by the mass and beauty of floral tributes sent by sorrowing and sympathizing friends.
