Martindale, John A.

Death of John A. Martindale
Mr. John A. Martindale, of Addison township, long known and respected as an honorable good citizen died this Saturday morning, August 8, 1903, at 3 o’clock at the home of his son-in-law, Mr. Jesse James, of Kyger, aged about 78 years.
His funeral will be preached by Rev. W. J. Fulton at 10 o’clock Sunday. He was an old soldier, a good citizen and had been Justice of the Peace and held other positions of trust, and was a man well liked by all who knew him.
He left three sons and three daughters, his wife dying several years ago. Only a part of his children can be here to attend the last sad rites of an affectionate father whom they loved and with whom they parted with regret.
