Mr. D. was well known in this state, through his connection, for a number of years, with the Alton Telegraph, as junior editor. He also served with gallantry through the Mexican war as aid-de-camp to Gen. Shields.

DEVORSS , J. J. was born in Ohio, 8 Jan 1826 (must have been 1806 or 1816), moved to Ind in 1831, and to Mo in 1338. On 10 Aug 1877 he was snatched away from his devoted family...He ate breakfast...at 3 o'clock he was grinding his hoe; he clasped his hand to his leg. "Oh, have you cut yourself", asked his wife. He said no. In a moment the pain ran to his breast and head, and his arm began to jerk. Then he calmly remarked, "I am paralyzed." He had only time to nay to his dau Alice, "you precious dear child", and at 9 o'clock he was with his Father in heaven. Just one hour from usual health to a lifeless body...His life shone brightest around his own family hearthstone...He long provided for his invalid sister. May God bless the deeply stricken wife and children.   - A Friend
