Andrew Jackson Balch

As we go to press we learn of the death of A. J. Balch, a highly respected citizen of our city. We extend our earnest sympathy to the family.

After a separation of thirty years, B. J. Balch came from his home in Fargo, North Dakota, to visit his brother A. J. Balch and did not learn of his death until after his arrival. Mr. Balch was a soldier, served a term in Andersonville and has confronted many sorrows, but this was the most painful of all.
