Alfonso Johnson
Al Johnson died of consumption at the home of his father-in-law, 
Charles Chastain, at 8 o'clock last night after being confined 
to his bed for two or three weeks.  

Deceased was the second son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Johnson of 
Cottonwood, Ill., and was twenty eight years of age.  He was 
married about nine years ago to Miss Cora Chastain and leaves 
a wife and son, eight years old to mourn his death.  

He contracted the disease, which ended his life, about two 
years ago, but its development was very slow and he was able 
to pursue his usual avocations until a few weeks ago, although 
he had been unwell all winter.  

The funeral and interment will take place at 10:30 tomorrow 
morning at Hopewell. The obsequies will probably be conducted 
by Rev. J. C. Kinnison. His mother and father have been notified of 
his death and will arrive here this afternoon to attend the funeral.
