This community was saddened last Wednesday when a telegram was received from Owasso, Mich., announcing the death that morning of Ira Johnson, a former and life-long resident of this town. Five years ago he went West to reside near his daughter, Mrs. C.C. Ward. He had been in poor health for the last few months with cancer of the stomach. January 1 he was operated on for strangulated hernia, from which he did not fully rally, and passed away January 22. He was a veteran of the Civil war and was 72 years old. Mrs. Johnson, who survives, was Laura Wiley. The funeral and burial were in Owasso.
