In Memoriam 


John H. Waugh


John H. Waugh died at Eddy, New Mexico, Thanksgiving day [1894], of blood poisoning.  He had been ill some time but about ten days ago concluded to visit the electric light works and icemaking plant of which he was superintendent.  While being driven there, the harness gave way and the frightened horse began kicking the vehicle.  Mr. Waugh jumped out and in his weak condition was injured internally.  He was the son of Judge Wm. W. Waugh of this place [Greenville] and was born just west of Greenville in 1853.  About 1873 he married to Ella M. Hammond, daughter of Dr. Hammond, formerly of Brooklyn, and she and two sons and one daughter survive him.  For many years he was Indian agent at the Fort Totten and Turtle Mountain reservations, North Dakota, where he received the title of "Major."  His death is mourned by his extensive acquaintance here.
