Another Linn County Pioneer Summoned to Final Reward.

J. D. Eby, since 1886, a most worthy citizen of Potosi township, died at his home in this place Saturday morning at 5:20 o'clock, from an attack of paralysis, which strickened him while milking the morning previous.

At the battle of Corinth he was wounded three times, which disabled him for further service, and he was discharged December 24th, 1865. He was married to Miss Susan Barby, of Peoria county, Ill. To this union three children were born, two dying in infancy.

Soon after his marriage he moved to Peoria county, where he resided until 1886, when he came to Linn county, locating on a farm southwest of Pleasanton four miles, where he continued to reside until about three years ago, when he moved to Pleasanton.

James C. Egbert

DIED in West Jersey on the 11th instant, of pneumonia, Mr.James C. Egbert, in the 36th year of his age.

The sudden and unexpected death of Mr. Egbert has cast quite a gloom over that neighborhood. His unassuming manners and retiring habits, and his upright character as an honest man, had gained for him the confidence and esteem of the entire community in which he has resided for years. He had not made a public profession of Religion, but was a regular attendant on the meens of grace; free to converse with his intimate friends on the subject of Religion, and willing to contribute of his means for her support, in his last moments he manifested a deep interest in reference to the future, though his suffering from the ravages of the disease prevented him from saying much.

Mr. E. was a confiding friend, a good counsellor, a kind husband, and an affectionate father. The large procession following his remains to the Presbyterian Church, where Divine services were conducted by the Rev. A.D. Miller, and then to the silent tomb, all told that a good man had died. He leaves an affectionate wife, three small children, and numerous relations and friends to mourn his early and sudden demise.  - Contributed by Karen Seeman
