J. N. Knock Dead


            Jasper N. Knock was born in Fulton county, Ill., in 1847, enlisted in Co. G of the Fifteenth Illinois at the age of 15, served throughout the Civil war, and answered the last roll call at fifty-eight, on Tuesday evening May 16th.  He located in Crawford county in 1872, and a few years later moved to this city where he has resided since.  For a long time he was a wagon maker, but ill health compelled him to give it up, and for three years he has been an invalid suffering from a complication of diseases.  He leaves a wife and two daughters and three sons.  His brother R. B. Knock and sister Mrs. Campbell of Havana were frequent visitors to his bedside and were at the funeral.  The funeral was under the auspices of the Grand Army, and Elder C. H. Jones left the general conference at Topeka to come and preach the funeral service.
