J. A. Mack, Pioneer Resident, Is Dead
Came to Greene County in Early Fifties and Became Prominent Here
Was Veteran of War

J. A. Mack, pioneer resident of Greene county, died last night following a stroke of paralysis which came early Wednesday morning, while visiting at the home of his brother-in-law, George W. Campbell, secretary of the Greene County Farm Bureau, four miles south of the city.  Mr. Mack never regained consciousness.  He was 70 years old.
The deceased, who had lived the greater part of his life in Greene county, went to the Campbell farm the first of the week.  He had been in ill health for several months and journeyed to the country in the hope that the purer air would benefit his condition.
The stroke came on Mr. Mack as he was sleeping at 2 o'clock Wednesday morning.  His wife first noticed his condition and when efforts to revive him were of no avail, she summoned Mrs. Campbell, who is a sister of the deceased.  Physicians were called but his condition became steadily worse until it was so critical that it was deemed best not to move him from the Campbell farm, where he succumbed last night.  He lived with his wife at 334 South Grant street.
Mr. Mack is survived, besides his widow, by two children.  They are Miss Daisy Mack, who lived with her parents, and John R. Mack of Guy Street.
Mr. Mack came to this part of the country in the late fifties with his parents.  They came to Missouri from Tennessee.  The deceased served four years in the Civil War wand was a soldier in the Sixth Missouri Volunteer regiment.  He was a member of the  G.A.R. which will probably attend the funeral in a body.  Interment will probably be in the National Cemetery.
Funeral arrangements have not yet been completed, but it probably will be held Saturday.

(Note-He was not buried in the National Cemetery, but in Hazelwood cemetery.-dm)

William L. Mack, commonly called Sunday Mack, died suddenly about 5 o'clock at his home in Maple Park cemetery of heart failure.  He had been downtown in the forenoon and visited one of his daughters in the afternoon.  On returning home he expressed himself as feeling better than he had for a few days and sat down in his rocker and expired in a very few minutes.
   The deceased had lived in the county 53 years, having moved here in 1852 with his father, Mr. John A. Mack, from Maury county, Tennessee, where he was born in 1832, being over 72 years old at the time of his death.  His father settled five miles south of the city on the Campbell street road on a farm, where young Mack farmed until about 1856, when he was married to Miss Araminta Dew, who with two sons, Rowan and Edward, and three daughters, Mrs. Robert Pate, Missess Lillie and Ona Mack, survive him.  After his marriage he engaged in farming until the outbreak of the civil war, when he served three months in the Union home guards under his father, Capt.John A.Mack and Capt. Piper, and then enlisted in the 6th Mo cavalry, but was soon discharged for disability.  He served as deputy sheriff and clerk of the probate court of this county for several years.  He was a good citizen and faithful, honest and conscientious officer and was loved and highly esteemed by all who knew him.
   Interment at Hazelwood cemetery.  Funeral services will be held at his home at 3 o'clock this afternoon.
