THE WESTERN STAR, 20 February 1892
Obituary of J. D. HOLDERBY
AN OLD CITIZEN GONE.

An old timer has fallen. J. D. Holderby sleeps quietly today. Mr. Holderby, one of the earliest settlers of the county, and one of the oldest citizens, died at the residence of his son, County Treasurer, H. O. Holderby, last Saturday morning, February 13, 1892, aged 83 years and 6 months. While his death was not a surprise, it was a great shock to his numerous friends and relatives. For the past six weeks or two months
he had been gradually sinking from an attack of la grippe, and owing to his extreme age his constitution was too weak to rally from its ravages.

Mr. Holderby had many years been a member of the Methodist church, and was a Christian gentleman to every sense of the word. He leaves a number of grown up children, some residing in this state and some of them in Missouri. His remains were taken back to Macon county, Missouri, for burial, his son, H. O. Holderby accompanying them from this city on Monday's train. "So man lieth down, and riseth not until the heavens be
no more, they shall not wake, nor be raised out of their sleep."
