Obituary:
John Dorris Appleby, Justice of the Peace, of Dublin township, this county, died Thursday morning August 21, at his home. He was the second son of William and Elizabeth Appleby and was born September 13, 1836, being therefore almost 82 years old. He lived his whole life in Dublin township, and followed the carpenter trade for many years. He married Rachel Bennett Harper, of the same township, during the Civil war. They reared a family of sons and daughters, - Mrs. Dora Peterson, James A. Appleby, both of Mt. Union; Miles, of Newton Hamilton; Milton Speer of Altoona; and Janie, Mrs. David Cree, at home. He had been a member of the Presbyterian church for sixty years. For many years he was the undertaker of the Shade Gap community. He was elected a Justice of the Peace many years ago and was kept in office until the end of his life. His wife died two years ago, since which his daughter, Mrs. Cree, kept his home and tenderly cared for him. The funeral will be held this Friday afternoon, services at 3 o'clock, followed by interment at Shade Gap.
