John Crawford Duggan, 80, esteemed citizen of Charleston, passed away at the home of a son, Robert Duggan, in that city, at 11:30 o'clock last evening. He had been ill only a few days, suffering a stroke of paralysis early in the week. Mr. Duggan, born in North Carolina, moved to Tennessee in early manhood, and for the past 35 years had been a citizen of Bradley County. He followed the occupation of farming. Several years ago he retired due to failing health. His wife, formerly Miss Elizabeth Hamby, passed away nearly one year ago, only nine days lacking, to make the twelve months when the couple were separated by the death of Mrs. Duggan. Surviving are four daughters and four sons, Mrs. Eddy Pierce, Cleveland; Mrs. Bessie Dodson, Mrs. Ida Shamblin and Miss Emma Duggan of Charleston; Robert Duggan of Charleston; Earnest, Edward and Frank Duggan of Cleveland. There are also 20 grand-children. Funeral services will be held Saturday morning at 10 o'clock at the Charleston Baptist church, conducted by Hugh Ensminger of Niota.
