John L. (J.L.) Bishop, aged 61 years, passed away Monday morning of pneumonia. Mr. Bishop had been slightly ill for a week with fever, but was thought to be getting along nicely until pneumonia developed Sunday morning when his condition became critical and he passed away in little more than twenty-four hours.

The deceased was born at Abington, Virginia, December 19, 1852, coming to Arkansas thirty-three years ago. On March 27, 1879, he was married to Miss Minnie B. Lumbard of Dongola, Illinois, who with a daughter, Mrs. Lockard Bandy, survive him. The funeral service will be held at the home on Laurel Street, Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 conducted by Rev. B.L. Wilford of the Methodist Church, of which he was a member. He was also a member of the Royal Arcanum.
