Passing Away. We regret to announce the passing of another estimable Jefferson county citizen in the death of Mr. John Griggs Flanagan, who died very suddenly last Thursday afternoon at his home near Bakerton. Mr. Flanagan had been in poor health for the past year, suffering from some form of heart trouble, but attended to business as usual and was not thought to be seriously ill. Last Thursday afternoon he said that he felt badly, and while his wife was preparing some home remedies for his relief, he suddenly expired while sitting in an arm chair. His death was a great shock to his family and friends, who could scarcely believe that he had passed away. His death occurred about 4 o’clock. Mr. Flanagan, who was 50 years of age was a lifelong resident of this county, and lived upon his farm near Bakerton. He was the owner of limestone quarries, but in recent years had not operated them to any considerable extent. He was a genial, kind-hearted man and was highly regarded by a wide circle of friends. He was a member of Zion Episcopal Church. He is survived by his wife and one son, John G. Flanagan, Jr., also one brother, James Flanagan, and three sisters, Mrs. Laura Moler, Mrs. Mary Licklider, and Mrs. Alice Hopper. The funeral was held at his late home on Saturday, the service being conducted by Rev. John C. Siler, assisted by Rev. J. E. Triplett. The body was laid to rest in Elmwood Cemetery.
