March 24, 1896
Mr John Rives, who lived a few miles east of Harmony, died on the 15th and was buried at Clarksbury on the 17th. In the death of Mr Rives we have lost one of our best citizens. He was a good man, a kind neighbor, a devoted husband, and leaves a wife and several small children and many friends to mourn their loss. Mr Rives was about 40 years old.
