  Thomas Treadway died at his home in this city Wednesday, February 28, and in his death Neosho county has lost another one of its pioneer citizens.  Mr. Treadway moved to this county from Ohio in 1869 and he has been a resident of Neosho ever since.  He first located in Walnut Grove township near Bethel and resided there until twenty-one years ago when he moved his wife to this city to live the balance of his days.  He has always been an honest and industrious citizen and it was such men as the late Thomas Treadway, that made this county the great and good county that it is now.

A. M. Maclean will have charge of the services.
