Obituary

A. J. Pike, a former resident of Readsboro, died at Jacksonville last week. He has bee in poor health for some time and his death was not unexpected to his friends. The funeral was held at the Baptist church in this village last Saturday, Rev. Mr. Smith of Halifax officiating. The local IOOF, of which Mr. Pike was a charter member, attended in a body. The GAR also attended, he being a veteran in the war of the rebellion. He had been married three times; a wife and one son survive to mourn his death. The remains were interred by the side of his former wife in the Bailey cemetery on North Hill.
