In this city, Sunday night, 8 o’clock, of congestion of the liver, after an illness of one week, John H. NEGLEY, aged about 30 years.

Deceased had been a resident of Jackson about five years.  His position as clerk in one of our leading business houses, threw him daily in contact with people from every portion of the county, and his friends in both city and country were many.  He was twice the favorite candidate of a majority of the white citizens of Jackson, for the office of City Constable. His parents reside in Woodstock, Ohio.  He was a member of the Fire Company of this city, and was a favorite with its members. John NEGLEY was cut down in full strength of manhood, with no relative near to comfort him in his last moments, but his memory will long be kept green in the hearts of his comrades, and be cherished by those who knew him for his true nobility of nature.
