John Townsley, brother to Peter and Jere Townsley and living a   few miles NE of Crawfordsville was taken ill the later part of   last week, but no serious thought was had by the family of a   fatal termination until Sunday evening when he began to sink. He   died just before sunlight Monday morning without a struggle. The   physicians pronounced his disease erysipelas of the brain (NOTE:   Current Medical dictionaries indicate that erysipelas is a skin   infection caused by Streptococcus Virus). The funeral services   took place on Monday afternoon and were conducted by Rev JW   Harris, of the Crawfordsville ME Church. Mr. T. was about 65   years of age.
