He was an unmarried man and had followed his trade as printer almost all his life. He was born in Scotland, in Greene county, and from there went to St. Louis where he spent five years in a printing office. He made a specialty of jobs printing and never endeavered to learn the trade generally. About a year ago he came to this city and took a situation as job printer in the Herald office. He worked at the office for some time but a few months ago went to Petersburg and since then had been working there. He always came home on Saturday, and two weeks ago when he came home to spend Sunday he complained of feeling ill. Monday morning he was too ill to return to his work at Petersburg. In a few days typhoid developed. Since that time he had been growing worse and last Thursday night peritonitis set in. The two diseases were the cause of death. John O'Donald was the son of Mr. and Mrs. W.T. O'Donald of 1018 east Van Tress street. He is survived by his parents and five brothers and sisters. They are Stella, Beryl, Ray, Dale, and George O'Donald.
