tud drm Death of Dr. Tiffin.
On Sunday morning last Dr. John
C. Tiflin died suddenly at his home in
Knoxville. He was In usual health,
and was preparing to go on a visit to
his daughter In the vicinity, wheu the
summons came. Our informant say
he was eating a piece of beef, broiled
on the coals., and a part of it caught
in his throat, which has been sore for
some time. This shock to his system
destroyed the vital forces almost In an
instant. Dr. Tiflin was born in Cass
county, Ohio, in 1&13, where his edu
cation was commenced. Ho was the
son of a physician aud commencod the
study of medicine under his father
at the age of 17. He entered Cincin
nati Medical College at the age of 22
(rtin which lustitution he graduated,
He came to Ray oounty and settled in
lti 42, and remained a citizen of the
county until the clav of his death. He
was married to Margaret Caideuin
but she only Jived seven years.
She left two sons Dr. Clay Titlin and
Dr. E. P. Tiffin both well known to
our people. Dr. Titlin was married a
second time to Miss Whitsett, who
bore five children. Dr. John and Dr.
W. W. Tiflin being two of the number.
