Dr. John GRANT Dead
Roff was sadly shocked at the sudden death of Dr. John GRANT which occurred athis home in Sherman, Texas at 6:40 o'clock last Monday morning.
All our people are familiar with the serious accident which befell home some two months ago in which his limbs were broken.
Dr.GRANT has lain these many long days suffering until pain, the greater part of the time in plaster or paris--and just when itseemed that he would certainly recover, he himself being unusually cheerful and expecting to leave his room on crutches next day, he was taken away.
While the physician was looking after his wounds he exclaimed with difficulty," I am smothering to death", and in spite of every effort he died in a few moments.
It is thought that the death was the result of neuralgia or rheumation of theheart rather than traceable to any complication of the accident.
Roff is deeply grieved over the loss of Dr. GRANT. He was a man of brains, means and power and his citizenship was worth much to this town.
Dr. John Grant, 51, died Sunday at his home in Sherman, Texas. He was ex-chairman of the Texas State Republican Committee, an ex-member of the Republican National Committee and a former U.S. Marshall for the Eastern District of Texas.
