A PIONEER OF HOWARD - THE DEATH OF JOHN W. LEACH AT CASSVILLE - VETERAN OF CIVIL WAR AND EXEMPLARY CITIZEN
Served for Many Years as Postmaster of the Village
John W. LEACH died at his late home in Cassville at 7 o’clock this morning after a protracted illness. The funeral will take place from the Cassville M. E. church Sunday afternoon and interment will be in Crown Point cemetery in this city. The services will be in charge of the Rev. Tinkham, pastor of the Bunker Hill M. E. circuit. The funeral will be largely attended by veterans of the civil war, among which Mr. Leach was numbered, from the Cassville neighborhood, and from the city and county in general.
John W. LEACH had a wide acquaintance throughout the county and was a man who had the esteem of all who knew him. He was born July 17, 1840, and had spent the greater part of his life in Howard county. He enlisted in the Tenth Indiana volunteer infantry in the war between the states and as a private in Company I of that regiment served valiantly and well. He was a man of modest demeanor, of unswerving integrity and of the best qualities of good citizenship. He was postmaster at Cassville under the two Cleveland administrations. He was an unswerving democrat in his political faith and his religion was founded in the golden rule, which he ever sought to observe. He had the merited respect and esteem of the community in which he had lived for so many years and in which his death is sincerely mourned. It is requested that all Civil War veterans who conveniently can be present at the obsequies.
