Horton Headlight-Commercial, 24 August 1933, page 1.

John Thomas Killoren, an early resident of Brown and Atchison counties and a fine gentleman, passed away August 18, 1933 at his home near the Brush Creek school house. He was born in Griggsville, Illinois, July 12, 1859, and at the time of his death was 74 years, 1 month and 6 days of age. In his boyhood he moved with his parents, and later came to the Brush Creek neighborhood, where he has lived ever since. He was married to Miss Emma Backenstoce, to which union were born seven children; Mrs. August Scheid, who passed away in May, 1917; Mrs. C.M. Sullivan of Horton; Mrs. Glenn Broadhurst of Sabetha; Margaret, Tom, Richard and Harry, all of the home. Besides the immediate family, he leaves two brothers, George Killoren of Powhattan, and Will Killoren of Enid, Oklahoma, and two grandchildren, Miss Helen K. and Miss Patsy Sullivan of Horton, to mourn his loss. Mr. Killoren was widely known as a good citizen and a wonderfully fine neighbor. He was a plain spoken man, emphatic in all his opinions, but with a kindly nature which endeared him to all who knew him. Funeral was held at the home Saturday, August 19, and burial was in the Powhattan cemetery.
