DEATHS

JOHNSTON - Mrs Samuel Johnston, residing in Black Hawk, a few miles south of Milan, committed suicide by drowning in an abandoned well near her home last Saturday morning. The deceased had undergone a surgical operation some months before and since then had been very nervous. Several years previous she had been troubled mentally and had spent some time in a hospital. The body was found Saturday night and an inquest was immediately held at the home. The funeral was held Tuesday with interment at Preemption. Mrs Johnston was 43 years of age and is survived by her husband, a daughter and three stepsons. Since the above was written the following obituary has been received. "Mrs Sarah Ann Johnston was born at Lisanroe, Clones, county Moneghan, Ireland, on Aug 30, 1865, and died on Feb 22, 1908. She was the daughter of Mr and Mrs James Johnston and came from Ireland in July, 1885. She was married to Samuel M Johnston on Jan 29, 1886, and to this union was born one daughter, Mrs Mary J Simmon, of Milan. There are also three stepsons, David and Robert of Reynolds and Josiah at home. She had two brothers, James and William, of Ireland and one sister, Mrs Lillie Kelly, of Scotland."
