Jack McCambley Dead

The remains of Jack McCambley were brought to Lake City by way of this city this morning for burial by the side of his son who died in a military camp in Washington early in the present year. Mr. McCambley died of heart trouble. He was afflicted with heart disease for over a year. At the time of his son's death he became very ill with heart failure and for several days was in a critical condition.

Mr. and Mrs. McCambley lived at Lake City a number of years ago. From that place they moved to Attica, and a short time ago went to La Harpe, Kansas. At the time of his death Mr. McCambley was employed in Barber county. Mrs. McCambley brought the remains to Medicine Lodge yesterday and Undertaker Forsyth took charge of the funeral arrangements. He took the body to Lake City for interment this morning.

The people of Barber county are saddened to hear of Mr. McCambley's death and extend profound sympathy to Mrs. McCambley in her great misfortune.


John "Jack" McCambley is buried in the Lake City Cemetery.
