JOHN T WRIGHT
Death of John T. Wright
Death came to John t. WRIGHT at the home of his parents, a few miles from this city, Saturday night, "like an untimely frost upon the sweetest flower of all the field."
Months ago the illness came upon him. He fought disease for awhile bu tthe sick bed was awaiting him and then the grave. A few weeks since he was removed from the home of his brother in this city to the paternal roof, and there he lingered till the last.
Sunday afternoon his friends gathered around the mound where they laid him on the "lone couch of his everlasting sleep." The death of the young is always sad, and we prefer to remember our friend as he was. Appareled in the nobility of youth, full of vigor and meanhood, with a heart full of good humor and a soul brimming with honest motives, he was a universal favorite and rewarded the love of his friends by a life of fidelity and usefulness. He enjoyed influential business relations and will be missed from the commercial circles of our city. He was a man whom none disliked and few failed to love.
The deceased was born March 23, 1861 and was in his 26th year at the time of his death. In September, 1882, he opened a clothing store at the corner of Seventh and Main and was unusually successful in his business. His funeral was preached by Rev. J.U. Spurlin.
