John Butler

Mr. John Butler, wagon maker, having his shop and residence on Main Street of this city near the Pittsburgh depot, fell sick of pneumonia on Saturday before last, and for all that his physician, Dr. Coates, could do, grew worse and died last Friday. His funeral was conducted at his residence on Monday at 10 A. M. by Rev. Mr. Meredith, of the Methodist Church. Mr. Butler was in the 61st year of his age. He seemed not to believe he was about to die at all, even in his last conscious moment. He is said to have believed in Universalism, though we are not aware of his ever having attended such meeting and made himself known to others of that persuasion, here. Whatever his religion may have been, however, he was apparently a sober, steady, honest, industrious, obliging, and otherwise respectiable man. He left a wife and little daughter to mourn for him and receive the sympathies of friends and neighbors.
