Ringgold Record, 1894
DEATH of JOHN FERTIG
Died on Sunday, April 15, 1894, Mr. John FERTIG, aged 73 years.
Mr. FERTIG was an old citizen in the county and greatly
respected by all. His death was somewhat unexpected. From supposed good heath he suddenly passed to the world beyond. We
have not learned the early incidents of his life, such as place of birth and removals. He leaves a wife, three sons and two
daughters. The funeral took place from the M.E. church at Benton at 10 a.m., Thursday, conducted by Rev. B. D. HIMEBAUGH. The
remains were laid to rest in the cemetery north of Benton. The large attendance present at the funeral told of the high esteem
and respect in which he was held.
NOTE: Sarah (?) FERTIG, wife of John, died at age 80 years, 11 months and 9 days on July
4, 1908, with interment at Benton Cemetery.
