Obituary
...The death angel entered our home and claimed for its victum, our loving father and friend.
...Johnson O'Neil was born September 27, 1848, and died December 27, 1925 at 10:00. No one knew of his sickness until his death. He was ill only the day before his death and death came as a shock to all the people.
...He had been a resident of this community for 76 years. He spent Christmas Day with Will Linch and talked and laughed as he ever did and the next day took sick. Little did folks think his time was so short, but it was God's will for He doeth all things well. God says that man's life is three score and ten years and sooner or later we must go the same as this dear one, prepared or unprepared.
...He joined the Christian Church, and was baptized. He leaves to mourn their loss, his wife & seven children, four having preceeded his to the Great Beyond.
...The children are Elza O'Neil, and Yeater O'Neil, of Proctor, Mrs. Vadie Schultz
, of Jacksonsburg, Stanley O'Neil, C.G. O'Neil, D.W. O'Neil and Franklin O'Neil, all of Proctor, and one brother.

He was laid to rest in the Highland Cemetery, December 29, to await the resurrection morn.
