John Aaron Truitt 79, died April 10, 1936 at St. Francis Hospital in Peoria, Illinois. Born January 23, 1857, the eldest of three sons in Spring Bay, Illinois to William S. and Mahala Jane Truitt. He married Miss Olive Jane Waller on February 25, 1885 in Chillicothe, Illinois.

This obit has been kept in my Truitt family for many years and handed down to me, Cathi Truitt Steffens, one of the Great Granddaughters, for preservation within our direct line of the Truitt family. Both my father, John, and Uncle Charles Truitt, shared the clipping of the Grandparents with me. It was published I believe in the Peoria and Chillicothe, IL newspapers as the clipping was merely cut out and entrusted to me for our descendants.
WITH SPECIAL THANKS TO JOHN T. TRUITT and my UNCLE CHARLES TRUITT

NEWSPAPER CLIPPING DATED APRIL 10, 1936 PEORIA, ILLINOIS
