John Creagon Dead.

  John Creagon, father of Mrs. W. G. Norman, died suddenly last night at the home of Mrs. J. S. Morrow on North Neosho at the age of 72 years.  He was found sitting in his chair about 9:30 with the evening paper in his hand but an examination showed that he had probably been dead for perhaps an hour when found.  Death was due to heart trouble with which he has been bothered for some time.  He was taken at once to the home of his daughter with whom  he makes his home, having  taken up only temporary quarters at the Morrow home while Dr. and Mrs. Norman were moving.

  Funeral services will be held Sunday afternoon from the Norman home, 611 East Main, at 2 o’clock conducted by Rev. W. H. Mulvaney.  The services will be in charge of the Masons, of which Mr. Creagon was a member.  He was also a member of the G. A.R .  Burial will be in Fairview cemetery beside Mrs. Creagon, who died last April.

  His grandson, Frank Sands, is here from Coffeyville to attend the funeral.
