J.M. WALTERS was born near Lancaster, Ohio, Aug. l3, l82l, and died in this city Feb. l, l898. He married MISS MARY KAGY in l848, and they were looking forward to a celebration of their fiftieth anniversary soon. To them were born five children, two daughters and three sons, of whom two -- T.M. and W.B. WALTERS, are still living. Twenty-eight years ago MR. WALTERS experienced religion and joined the Baptist Church, of which he has been a faithful and consistent member. His death, following so soon upon his son's sudden decease, gives another severe blow to the sorrowing family, who have the heartfelt sympathy of their many friends.
