THE WESTERN STAR, 11 October 1912
Obituary of J. J. HARTER

J. J. Harter died at 5:20 p.m. on last Sunday, October 6, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. C. H. Myers, 12 miles south of this city. He had been in his usual good health up to 3 days before his death. His condition
was not considered alarming, hence death came very unexpectedly. Heart trouble was given as the cause of his death. Mr. and Mrs. Harter moved to this county about a year ago from Barton county, Kansas, and were making their home with their son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Myers, until they could complete some improvements on their own land.
The body of Mr. Harter was embalmed and kept for a few days awaiting the arrival of a son from California, which will probably be tomorrow.

Mr. Harter was an early settler in Barton county, Kansas. From there he moved to Topeka where he lived for 22 years. He was a good citizen and kind and consistent father and husband. His friends were numerous wherever he was known. Mr. Harter carried life insurance amounting to $4000, $2000 in the Modern Woodmen and $2000 in the Knights and Ladies Security.
