J.T. McMillan Died Suddenly
J.T. McMillan died Tuesday afternoon after an illness which lasted only a few minutes. Death came to him while he was in the field where his son, V.H. McMillan, was at work, and was caused by an attack of paralysis. He suffered an attack of the same disease about five years ago.
Mr. McMillan was 64 years of age last April and came to Kansas in 1877. He has lived in this community for years and was one of Stafford county's most successful and accomplished farmers. He is survived by his wife and son, Victor H. McMillan, five brothers and two sisters.
Mr. McMillan had gone with his son to the old Lear farm west of town, where the son was scattering straw. They were sitting on a stack talking, when the elder McMillan remarked that he was getting chilly and that he believed he would help pitch some straw to get warmed up. After working a few minutes, he remarked to his son, "Vic, I believe there's something wrong with me." The son saw that his appearance was not normal and started to get him out away from the stack into the open air and away from the dust. Mr. McMillan took a couple of deep breaths and passed away in his son's arms.
Funeral services will be held Friday afternoon at 2:30 at the home in the west part of town.
