W. J. KING DIED AT ROCHESTER
Fairfield Man Succumbed Friday Night After Second Operation
William J. KING, 903 South Main street, died at Rochester, Minn., at 10:45 oclock Friday night, following an operation for cancer.
Mr. KING had been in failing health for a year and went to the Mayo clinic at Rochester, January 15 for treatment. He was operated on a few days later for an obstruction of the bowels and recovered rapidly from that but it was discovered that he also was afflicted with cancer, and a second operation for its removal was performed a week ago yesterday. He seemed also to be recovering from the second operation but his condition became suddenly worse and his brother, A. L. KING, was summoned to his bedside last week.
The body will arrive here over the Burlington at 2:48 oclock this afternoon and will be taken to the home. Funeral services will be held at St. Mary's Catholic church tomorrow morning at 9 oclock and interment will be in the Lockridge cemetery. Rev. E. F. Gaule will have charge of the services.
Mr. KING was born at Trenton, Henry county, Iowa, November 17, 1872, and came with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Sebastian KING to Jefferson county when a few months old, and had lived here ever since. He had never married.
He is survived by the mother, with whom he made his home, and five brothers and a sister, who are: Fred KING of Mt. Pleasant, Joseph KING of Kahoka, Mo., Samuel, A. L., and John L. KING and Mrs. William VOGEL of Fairfield.
