The community was very much shocked to hear of the sudden death of John Jackson on the 12th instant. He arose apparently as usual on Sunday morning in good health, but before leaving his room sank upon the floor and expired immediately. His funeral was attended Tuesday afternoon under the auspices of Bostwick Post, G.A.R.
