J. B. Johnson was called away to New York State the 1st of this month by telegram, to attend the funeral of Mrs. Johnson's brother, Avaldo Woodley, who died very suddenly at his home in Cowelsville, N.Y.

Deceased was born in this place some 38 years ago and lived here until 18 years ago, when he left to make his home in the East.

He soon took a partner in life and settled on a farm, where he lived until death called him away.

He was very highly respected as a neighbor in the vicinity in which he lived, and his death cast a gloom over the whole neighborhood.

He was buried on 4 Jul 1901, the services being conducted at the house, after which the remains were taken to Arcade and laid in the cemetery.

He leaves behind a sorrowing wife, one son and daughter, three sisters and two brothers.
