a great shock. l only lo the
family, but to (he many friends, a
very few of whom had learned of
his illness, which was of only a
week's duration. He suffered a
severe attack of lagrippo and grew
worse so rapidly that medical

cemetery adjoining the church.

whom three sons are deceased.

The writer became acquainted
with John Irwin soon after he

family, in later years. He and his
wife and children had many
friends in this part of the county,
and all extend sincere sympathy
to the sorrowing family. Union
