surrounded by his son and daughter several relatives and a few devoted friends Hon John K McClary ceased to live and the soul of this big brained man passed be hind the veil and made its entry in to the realms ot that unknown at orld After a long and lingering illness luring which the fatal malady of which he vas the victum indde steady and relentless progress the end came quietly and peaceful ly Funeral services were held tne next morning by Dr Ewers In youihasin manhood one pf his most striking characteristics was his lirmness and unconquerable iieterminatigu of purpose which rapidly developodll1is char aster and filled lulu at fin early age to grapple successful with the stern duties of practical life He- was born in April 1834 was deputy sheriff under David M Lew5select ed to the legislature for one term fetnetllt5 1 f lW man in the practice of law and af 1terwardsCommissioner under Judge W H Randall and Judge Morrow During his services as Commissioner he always took two receiptsfor the payment of money one of which he w ould file with the papers of the case and the other he would mark with red ink and retain so that in case the reciept which he had filed away should get destroyed he would have the duplicate and in many instances prevent trouble that might arise From 67 to the fallof69 he and D N Villiam sold goods on the State road at the old James Houk place He then went to Lynn Camp Knox county where he and Mr J L Joplin sold goods for a short time When Berea college was first founded by John G Fee Mr McClary was the grst to enter from this county Soon a meeting of all the students was called for the purpose of draft ing some resolutions to be given the board of directors stating that if the colored people were not removed from the school that the white students would all leave The resolutions signed by all the students were presented but all of no effect Mr McClary was the only one to leave the school This we give only to show his firmness and how closely he tried to carry out any resolve that he made In 1875 he married Miss Mpllie Fish second daughther of Judge JB Fish who has been dead five years They had only two children W F and Miss Margaret He leaves three sisters Mrs W P Hiatt Mrs Perander Hiatt and Mrs Lee Andrew Houk of Jamestown Ind and two brothers W C McClary of Kansas City Mo and Mr A K McClary of this county He never joined any church but God in hie mercy accorded him the time dur ing his long continued illness to regulate the affairs of his consci enceIn all the changing scenes of his eventful life instorrn and sunshine his manly spirit faced with fear less front whatever chanced He had not walked for over fifteen years having been a victim of rheumatism for years His lower Hmbs were greatly drawn as were his hands He felt a kinship in the whole human lace and lived a sharer iu its sorrows as well as its joys In this life he knew no fear andwhen he faced the last and grandest test to which the soul of man is ever put and heard deaths footfall nearing fast in plainly marked approach he met him with the unblanched cheek of perfect fearlessness The summons came at last to tread the unknown path ways
