(Acknowledgement to Washington County Nebraska Genealogical Society for archive of following obituary)

Blair, Neb., Sept. 16 - - Mrs. John A. Rhoades, wife of the publisher of the Enterprise here, died this morning.

Rites will be held at 2:30 Sunday at Blair Congregational Church.

Mrs. Rhoades' father, L. F. Hilton, established the first printing business here in 1869. In 1894 he sold the shop and assumed management of the Hoof and Horn at Omaha, which became the present Journal Stockman. He later moved back here to run the Enterprise.

Surviving are Mr. Rhoades, two daughters, Mrs. Philip O'Hanlon and Priscilla M. Rhoades, and a son, J. Hilton Rhoades, all of Blair.

(The year of her death was not listed in the obituary, but was learned by consulting the online database of Washington County cemeteries.)
