Mr. D.A. January, whose death has been expected for several days, expired this morning at 3 o'clock. He will be buried Monday morning from his late residence, at the corner of Twelfth street and Washington avenue.

He was born at Lexington, KY, and in 1832 removed with his mother to Jacksonville, Illinois, where he opened a store with his brother.

This firm continued and prospered for forty years, becoming one of the largest and richest in the city.
