John R. Sumpter

P.M. Kyger and family went up to Winfield, Kans., Sunday morning, called there by the serious illness of John R. Sumpter, formerly of this county. Mr. Kyger and daughter, Helen, returned Sunday evening and Mrs. Kyger returned Monday evening. Mr. Sumpter is very low with catarrh of the stomach and his many friends in this city and the vicinity of his old home, Sumpter, will be sorry to learn of his serious condition.


JOHN R. SUMPTER DEAD

John R. Sumpter, who formerly lived in Sumpter, in this county, died last Saturday morning at his home in Winfield, Kansas. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock, and was conducted by the Winfield G.A.R. Post. Mr. Sumpter came to this county from Winfield soon after the opening and bought a relinquishment to a quarter section of land, a part of which is now Sumpter. He engaged in a general mercantile and grain buying business at Sumpter, and left here some four years ago on account of failing health. He spent the first year after leaving here in Illinois, then a year in California, and the past two years in Winfield, but has steadily failed in health and strength. The end came suddenly and sooner than anticipated, but was inevitable as his case was incurable. Mrs. P.M. Kyger and daughter Helen went from her to attend the funeral. The Sumpters had many friends here who will regret to learn of his death, and who will join with us in sympathy to the bereaved family.
