Answered the Last Roll Call.

J.H. Jamison died at his home in this city Tuesday morning about 2 o'clock. He had been in poor health for several years before his death, suffering from rheumatism and for several days prior to his demise, he had been confined to his home, although he seemed no worse than at other times. Monday his stomach distressed him greatly and he was compelled to go to bed, and gradually grew worse until the end came.

J.H. Jamison was born in Pennsylvania, Oct. 2, 1832, where he remained until 1858 when he moved to Missouri and engaged in farming. During the war of the rebellion he served in Co. E of the Seventh Regulars for thirty-seven months, being mustered out April 14, 1865, the day of Lincoln's assassination. He saw a great deal of service while in the army, but escaped unharmed.

At the close of the war he went back to his farm in Missouri, and had to keep close watch for a long time to escape damage by rebels and their sympathizers.

In 1870, he moved on a farm four miles east of Humboldt, where he lived until 1877, when he moved to this city, and lived here until his death.

He was married while he lived in Pennsylvania and five girls and one boy were born to that union. He leaves a wife, children and step-children to mourn his departure.

As a citizen Mr. Jamison was upright and fearless for the best interests of the city. He was an enemy of vice in all its forms and could always be found on the side of right--the kind of man a town can ill afford to lose.

The funeral occurred at the M.E. church Wednesday at 3:00 p.m., and was attended by a large crowd of friends of the deceased and family. Rev. Roberts delivered a fine funeral sermon, and Rev. Fenn also spoke in high tribute of the deceased. The burial took place at Maple Grove cemetery, and was attended by members of Vicksburg Post, No. 72, G.A.R., as pall-bearers, and a large procession of friends.

The aged wife and other relatives of the deceased have the sympathy of many friends in the affliction.
