"John Monk, former town collector and for nearly forty years a cigar maker in this city, died at the Old Soldiers' Home, Danville, Ill., yesterday afternoon. His body will be brought to this city tonight. He had been ill for nearly two years. He gave up active work three years ago. Some time following his election as town collector a year ago, he was taken to St. Joseph's hospital for treatment. Three months ago he returned to the soldiers' home. Mr. Monk was well known in Elgin, especially among older residents. He was a veteran of the civil war and for many years a familiar figure at the reunions of the 'boys of '61'. Besides his widow, he is survived by a son, John Monk, of South Elgin, and two daughters, Mrs. Ed Howell and Mrs. Anno Andresen of this city. He also has several brothers."
