      Mr. A.H. McKinnon, Jr.

      After a lingering illness, on Monday morning last,
      Mr. A.H. McKinnon proudly breathed his last at his home in
      Henderson. He had been in failing health for several years,
      but until the past few weeks, had not been confined to his room.
      During all his sufferings, he bore up nobly and was seldom
      heard to complain about his lot.
      He was a member of the M.E. Church, a constant
      Christian and an honest, conscientious gentleman who was
      honored and re-spected by all who knew him. He was about
      forty years of age, and was never married, but lived with his
      widowed mother. His remains were lain to rest Tuesday in
      Montezuma cemetery in the presence of a large concourse
      of friends. To the breved mother and sisters, we tender our
      most heartfelt sympathy.
