COLUMBUS COURIER, 13 July 1876
Notice of Death for JOHN TANNER
THE YOUNG MAN IS DEAD

It is with pain that we announce the death of JOHN TANNER, the young man that was wounded by the skyrocket on the evening of the Fourth, in this city. He remained apparently unconcious(sic) from the time he was wounded until he died, on Tuesday last (Jul. 11) about four o’clock. This sad occurance(sic) is deeply deplored by all and it is to be hoped that in the future, greater care will be given to guard against accidents of this kind.

Mr. Tanner, the father of the young man, is a man with a large family and very poor circumstances. All expenses attending the case, medical attendance and funeral, will be furnished by the city. Mr. Tanner and family, has the heart-felt sympathies of the people in this community, in this their hour of bereavement.
