John F. Hays

John F. Hays was born in Overton county, Tenn., March 10th, 
1850, and died at the home of A. A. McMeen, in Jefferson
county, Ill., February 22, 1892, aged 31 years, 11 months 
and 13 days.  
He had been sufferer for a long time with that dreadful 
disease, consumption, yet he hardly ever complained and 
seemed cheerful up to within a short time before his death.  
The writer visited him daily. About three weeks before he 
died he said that he was willing to die and everything was 
bright in the future. Interment at Hopewell, funeral sermon 
by Rev. J. N. Brown, assisted by James McCormack. The father 
and brothers have the sympathy of a number of friends.
