John M. Daugherty Dies Monday Night

John M. Daugherty died at the home of Mrs. Ida Peterson, where he had been cared for during the past several years, Monday evening, January 12, at about 9:30.

Mr. Daugherty was an elderly man, but his exact age had not been learned as The Herald goes to press. He had been blind for many years and little is known here of his life before he was brought to the Peterson home from the Keeline vicinity some five or six years ago.

Among the surviving relatives are two daughters, one of Sargeant, Neb., and the other of Mitchell, Neb., and a sister in California.

The two daughters are expected here for the funeral service, which will be held at the Peet Chapel on Thursday afternoon, with William A. Sherk officiating. Burial will be made in the Lusk Cemetery.
