Undated newspaper clipping of obituary 

James Devor, son of John Devor, and a teller at the Second National Bank for some time, was found dead in bed at home last Friday morning by his wife when she went to awaken him for breakfast.  He was in poor health, subject to fainting spells, but retired the evening before in the best of spirits after his return from the Church choir practice.  He found lying on his face, and it is believed that while struggling in one of those terrible spells he rolled over on his face, and, being unable to help himself, finally smothering to death.  His death was a great surprise to everybody, a great loss to wife and daughter, relatives and friends, and the bereaved family have the sympathy of the people generally.  The deceased was about 40 years of age, a genteel and energetic young man, well respected by all who knew him.  Funeral services at the residence at 2 o'clock Monday afternoon were largely attended, conducted by Rev. Swan, pastor of Presbyterian Church.
