Wallingford Pioneer Died Last Monday
John K. Johnson, a pioneer resident of Wallingford, died in Albert Lea, Minnesota, last Monday, following an operation at that place. Mr. Johnson had been in failing health for some time and he submitted to the operation hoping for relief. Mr. Johnson has been identified with the growth of Emmet county for many years and has a host of friends that will be deeply grieved to learn of his death. The body is expected to reach Wallingford this evening and funeral services will be held tomorrow afternoon. He leaves several children, among them being a son, N.J., who lives on the home place, Mrs. Olin Anderson and Mrs. Otto Larson of Wallingford, and Mrs. L.E. Berg, of this city. We are unable to get the obituary at this time, but will publish it next week. (Estherville Democrat, Estherville, IA, September 24, 1919)
