This community was shocked last Saturday morning at the announcement of the death of John T. INMAN, which occurred from heart trouble during the early morning hours while the deceased slept. He was in his usual health on Friday and was active at his work of butcher and meat dealer in the store of Charles COX, and nothing unusual was known of his physical condition when he retire Friday night.
John Thomas INMAN, son of James and Sarah C. INMAN, was born on March 12, 1859, and passed away at his home in Bloomfield, November 14, 1925, aged sixty-six years, eight months and two days.
He was married March 16, 1881 to Lydia J. STANFIELD, who departed this life in November 1906. To this union were born four sons and two daughters, namely: Fred INMAN, of Linton; Mrs. Tressa PORTER, of Scotland; L. H. INMAN, of Indianapolis, and Odessa L. INMAN, of Yellow Springs, Ohio; William and Ann, both deceased.
On February 9, 1908, he was united in marriage to Miss Fanny WILLIAMS of Nashville, Tennessee, who survives him.
He was a devoted husband and a kind and affectionate father.
He leaves an aged father, James INMAN; three brothers, Josephus INMAN, of Linton; Harley Inman of Indianapolis, and W. E. INMAN, and sister, Mrs. M. G. MESSICK, both of Bloomfield, and eleven grandchildren.
His life was one of usefulness and well spent. He was honest and upright in all his dealings. His character and manner of living was for him a host of friends, and his sudden death came as a great shock.
