DEATH OF J. S. GARLOCK
April 2, 1895 (hand written)
This morning at 2 o’clock the venerable J.S. Garlock passed peacefully to rest at his home on East Fifth street. The deceased was taken with a very severe attack of illness about six years ago, and never fully recovered, although he was able to be up about most of the time up to five or six weeks ago.
Mr. Garlock was born in Montgomery county, New York, April 13, 1814, and was consequently nearly 81 years old. In 1838, he was married to Miss Jane Ann Brumfield, who survives him, and is left to mourn. He came west in the spring of 1857, locating in Wilton, where he resided for two years, engaging in the lumber business, and, in 1859, moved to this city to embark upon the same business, which he followed until some seven or eight years ago when, on account of his health, he retired and had lived a quiet life up to the time of his death. He was the father of seven children, five of whom with their aged mother survive him, they being Mrs. Sarah E. Scriptine, of East Wooster, New York, Mrs. R.W. Leverich, of this city, Mrs. Geo. Sacrider, of Lake City, Iowa, who has been at his bed side for some time past, and Mrs. J.H. Walters, of Ft. Collins, Col. Two children preceded him in death, Mrs. John Hartman, and Capt. C.F. Garlock, who died only a few months ago.
The deceased was a quiet, unassuming citizen, one who had the esteem and confidence of his fellow citizens. He was an ardent Republican, and a strong prohibitionist.
The funeral is appointed for Friday morning at 10 o’clock from the home.
