The Ringgold Record, 1899
DEATH of JOHN SCOTT.
John SCOTT, one of the pioneer settlers of Ringgold county, died suddenly at his home in Athens township, Tuesday morning at
4 o'clock. Mr. SCOTT had been to Kellerton on Monday and walked out to his farm in the evening. While sitting talking to his
son, he was stricken with paralysis in one arm. Medical aid was summoned and everything possible was done to save him, but
the paralysis affected the heart and his death occurred early Tuesday morning. The funeral will be held today. Mr. SCOTT
was one of Ringgold county's most highly respected citizens and his loss will be keenly felt in the community. A more
extended obituary notice will be given later.
