JEFFERSON COUNTY IL 
OBITUARIES

 
OBITUARY:  The Mt. Vernon Register News published the following on Thursday, 
March 2, 1916 which read:

 "Joe Dodds, aged 57, a well known farmer in the 
south part of the county, dropped dead on his faarm, about three miles west 
of Ina, about 2 o'clock, yesterday.  He was driving a drove of sheep into the 
barn to protect them from the heavy snow storm, when he suddenly dropped to 
the round and was dead in a very short time.  Mr. Dodds has been in Ina 
during the day on business and appeared to be in good health, and his death 
was a great shock to his relatives.  He was born near Mt. Vernon on the farm 
now occupied by Jerome Mannen, just at the western limits of this city."
