JOHN PRYER

best
known citizens. He was born Oct. 30, 1830 in Cranberry Twp.,
Venango
county, and died April 17, 1894., being at the time of his
death over
63 years of age. On the day of April 17th he failed to appear
at the
usual call of the dinner hour and his wife went to search for
him,
finding him in the barn, apparently sleeping, with his head
resting on
one arm. It proved to be his long, last sleep, and the voice
of his
faithful wife could not awaken him. He had been troubled some
with
heart disease for several years, and had fallen dead while
caring for
his horses. Deceased was a man, upright and honest in all his
transactions, a believer in all that was good and right, sober
and
industrious in habit, and a kind husband and father. At the
age of 21
years he went to Forest county and engaged in the lumber
business
until the fall of 1863, when he purchased the farm on which he
has
resided, in Rockland twp., ever since with the exception of
drilling
some on Oil Creek during the first excitement there. On May
22, 1856,
he was united in marriage to Gertrude J. Purdy who, with five
grown up
children, two sons, Wallace and Norman L., and three daughters,
Mrs.
Chas. E. Ferringer, Mrs. Chas. E. Heron, and Mrs. C. R. French
survive
him. His remains were interred in the M. E. cemetery,
Rockland, where
they were followed by a large concourse of sorrowing relatives
and
friends. The sympathy of the community is extended to the
bereaved
wife and family.
