Dr. D. J. Mahon was born September 15, 1848, in Queenstown Ireland; he passed June 29, 1944, in a Fort Worth (Texas) hospital. Having received his elementary and religious education in Ireland, Brother Mahon came to the United States when he was about nineteen. He received his medical degree from Tulane University in 1890. For a time he was connected with the Christian Church, but as he studied his Bible he saw the innovations that had caused that church to depart from the New Testament teaching, and he left it to worship with those who are continuing steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine. He spent the last years of his life in an effort to bring others to the oneness that is to be found only in Christ. Firm in his convictions, he yet enjoyed the friendship and respect of those whose practice and faith differed from the New Testament. Truly, he preached the truth in love. He was a member of the Arlington Heights congregation, Fort Worth, and frequently spoke to the assembly. Despite his years, his mind was clear, his lessons always helpful and gladly received. He was regular in attendance in all kinds of weather, making the trip across town by city bus. Funeral services were conducted at the Southside building, with Brethren Robert C. Jones, N. L. Clark, and James L. Standridge taking part. Sister Mahon preceded her husband in death four years ago. He is survived by two sons (Paul E., of Lamesa, and Will H., of Brownwood), five daughters (Miss Ella and Mrs. J. Hartswell Jones, of Fort Worth; Miss Sadie, of Tulsa; Mrs. Earnest Harrison, of Decatur; and Mrs. O. W. Hatfield, of Houston), and seven grandchildren. James L. Standridge, Fort Worth, Texas. - Gospel Advocate, September 7, 1944, page 599.
