John M. Holcomb died of old age at the home of his son-in-law, George W. Fort, near Olena, Illinois, Saturday, July 28, 1900, aged 88 years, 3 months and 20 days.

Deceased was born in New York state and moved to Gallipolis, Ohio, with his parents when a child. He grew to manhood in Ohio and was married there April 18, 1833, and in 1839 he moved to VanBuren County, Iowa, where he lived seventeen years and then moved to this county, Marcy 17, 1893, his wife preceded him to the spiritland and was buried in the Hitt cemetery. After her death he went to Olena, Illinois, and made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Fort. the last year of his life he was almost helpless and when death came it was a release from a life reaching nearly a score of years beyond the time allotted to man. He was highly esteemed and respected by all who knew him. He was moral, sober, industrious, frugal and kind-hearted -- a model husband, a kind father and a good neighbor. At a ripe old age he has been gathered to the fathers full of years and honors.

The body was brought from Olena, Illinois, to Memphis on the Monday morning train and taken from here to Hitt where appropriate funeral services were held, Rev. U. O. Deputy officiating, after which the remains were laid to rest in the cemetery by the side of his wife.
