THE WESTERN STAR, 13 June 1906
Obituary of JOHN Q. WILLIAMS
John Q. Williams Dead.

John Q. Williams died at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, June 5, 1906, at the home of his brother, D. H. Williams, near Cullison, Pratt co. He was seized with a severe stroke of paralysis of the left side on the Saturday evening
before and soon afterwards Mr. Williams became unconscious. He never regained consciousness.

Deceased was born in Venango county, Pennsylvania, on February 13, 1842, and was, therefore, in his 65th year at the time of his death. In the year 1861 he was married to Miss Ellen McMullen who survives him. Mr.
and Mrs. Williams moved from Pennsylvania to Pratt county, Kansas, in September, 1884, and in 1891 they moved to this county, settling on Kiowa creek in Irwin township. About a year ago Mr. Williams sold his
farm in this county to J. W. Hoch, who now, lives thereon. Mr. Williams health had not been good for some time. He had led an active, busy life, and even up to a year ago was a hard worker.

Frank H. Williams, son of the deceased, and whose home is in Franklin, Pa., was present at the burial services which took place in the Pratt cemetery on Thursday.
