19 Feb., 1891 - The Pilot - John Hazlip - Veteran

HAZLIP - At his home in Blair, Nebr., on Friday, Feb. 6th, 1891, of inflammation of the bowels, John Hazlip, aged 51 years.

Deceased was a native of Ireland, coming to Canada with his parents in early childhood. Later, he went with them to Rochester, N.Y., where he lived many years and where his mother and two sisters still reside. From there he came with his family to this place but a few years since. For more than two years past he has been in the city employ as engineer at the water works where he was acknowledged a faithful, trusty employee. He was a veteran in the late war, having served with honor in the 10th N.Y. Volunteer Infantry.

Wednesday preceding his death, he came home sick, and in just about 48 hours breathed his last in spite of the best efforts of local physicians. For a long time he was a sufferer from the army complaint that effects so many of the old soldiers, and that was the direct cause of the death, though such fatal result was not expected up to very near his last moments.

John Hazlip was an honest man, and an excellent citizen, who had made many friends during his residence here. He leaves a bereaved widow and two grown up daughters to mourn the loss of husband and father. The funeral was from the family residence on Sunday, and was attended by Grand Army and Sons of Veterans respectively in a body. The services were conducted by Rev. Whiting of the Baptist church.
