John Blackmore

The East Liverpool Tribune

John Blackmore, aged 45, died at the Taylor hospital yesterday morning (Mar. 30, 1906) of uraemic<sis> poisoning after an illness of only four days. An operation was performed on Wednesday by Drs. Hobbs, Davis, Laughlin and Taylor, and the patient was apparently convalescing, when the collapse came.

Mr. Blackmore was on the streets last Sunday and the suddenness of his illness ands subsequent death, was a deep shock to his many friends. Mr. Blackmore resided at Hookstown, but when taken sick he was stopping at the Albion house.

The remains will be taken to Hookstown today where funeral services and burial will occur from his late home Sunday afternoon at 1 o'clock. The deceased is survived by a wife and the following children: Mrs. Bert McCoy and Mrs. J. Howard Davis, of this city; Mary, Thomas, Catherine and Ella Blackmore at home.
