Mrs. John Hagaman Dead.

Word reached this city today that Mrs. John Hagaman died yesterday at the Central hospital for insane at Jacksonville. She was the wife of Supervisor Hagaman, of Western Mound, and about 60 years of age. A year ago she had a very severe spell of sickness which resulted in mental derangement, and as her condition was not amenable to the best medical treatment procurable by loving relatives, some six months ago she was taken to Jacksonville. Mrs. Hagaman always enjoyed the honor of being an estimable woman, respected by all. She leaves a husband and four children. The funeral and interment will occur Sunday at the Reader cemetery.

Bird - The people of this place were somewhat shocked on hearing of the message that Mr. John Hagaman received Thursday, stating that it was thought his wife was dying at Jacksonville. Mr. H. left immediately for that place, and upon arriving there found her still alive but very low, We regret very much to hear of her critical condition, but hope to learn of her speedy recovery in the near future.

Pioneer Dies Suddenly

John Hagaman Answers the Last Call Early Saturday Morning.

John Justin Hagaman, one of the pioneers of Macoupin county died suddenly at his home on First South street this city, at 6:30 Saturday morning. He had been affected with pleurisy for the past two months but was not confined to his home. He had been examined by two or three physicians. While he did not have much strength, yet he went about town as usual. Friday afternoon he was about town as usual, and retired at night early, as he was not feeling so well. About 9 o'clock he woke up with a severe spell of coughing, which it appears produced a hemorrhage. A physician was called and stopped it. He went to sleep and rested well till 6 o'clock this morning. When he awoke he asked his wife to start the furnace. While she was in the basement her sister Mrs. Kate CAIN heard him breathing heavily and found him unconscious. A physician was sent for but it was too late. He passed away at 6:30.

The deceased was born at Salt Lake, Bath County, Kentucky, January 16, 1835. He came to Illinois when but sixteen years of age. He worked on the farm for pioneers in the Chesterfield vicinity and by hard work secured enough means to purchase a farm, the present Hagaman homestead in Western Mound. He resided on this farm most of his active life. Eight years ago he gave up farming and for the past six years has resided in his property in Carlinville.

The first wife of deceased was a Mrs. Hubbard who did not live but a short time. He was afterwards married to Miss Jane Reader, daughter of the late Pascal Reader. To this union several children were born, two of whom are still living, John Justin Hagaman of Bird and George Hagaman of Reader. About twelve years ago, his second wife died. Sometime before moving to Carlinville he was married to Miss Annie Flanagan, daughter of the late Martin Flanagan of Hagaman, who survives him.

The funeral of John Hagaman was held Monday morning at Shiloh Baptist church. The remains accompanied by a large concourse of relatives and friends left the home in Carlinville at 8 o'clock. The funeral sermon was delivered by Rev. D. P. Deadrick, lifelong friend of the deceased who had been closely associated with the deceased and his family. He preached an able sermon. All the old neighbors were present to pay their last sad tribute of respect. The church was not large enough to seat all who attended the services. The remains were borne to the cemetery on the old Reader homestead where they were laid to rest near the monument of the late Paschel Reader. The pallbearers were Elmo Etter, Wm. Surman, T. Z. Gleason, Aaron Loveless, Douglas Holmes and C. J. Lumpkin. In addition to his wife and children he left ten grandchildren, namely Russel, Callie, Omer, Paul, Ivan and John Hagaman of Bird; Mrs. Viola Parker of Granite City; James and Truman McClain of Polk and Lindle Hagaman of St. Louis; two great-grandchildren, Miles and Dale Parker of Granite City.
