Sudden Death

Mr. DeForest has suffered severely from rheumatism for the past tow years and had called at the doctor's office to consult him. The doctor being out he sat down to await his return. A Mr. Mullen, of Sharpsville, entered the office and the two entered into conversation. In a few moments Mr. DeForest gave a gasp and fell from his chair dead. Undertaker Cover was called and the remains were taken to his late home on A. Street. Deceased was aged 81 years and leave a wife and two sons, Emery, of Johnsville, and Byron, of Sharon. Mr. DeForest was a life long member of the M. E. church and an unflinching temperance advocate. The funeral was held Monday. Rev. A. V. Philips, officiating. Interment in Oakwood Cemetery.
