Dies at his brother's home in this city.

Mr. John G Lay died at 8 o'clock Saturday night at the home of his brother, Mr. Michael Lay on Crooked creek, where he was on a visit, having been taken sick while there. His home was in Columbus to which city his bady was taken by the five o'clock train Sunday afternoon. The decedent was seventy -two years old and was born in Milton Ky (this is a misprint as John G was born in Baden Germany before his father John B Lay came to America). He and Mr. Matt Hoffman learned the barber's trade at the same time in the shop of the late Mr. Jacob Weber, who kept near Broadway on West Main Street.
He moved to Columbus many years ago. He was a member of the Lutheran Church and of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. He leaves a wife, one daughter and three sons.
