The death of John Fritchman last Monday, removes another of the pioneers of Andrew county and a citizen who stood high in the estimation of all who knew him. He was born in Cumberland county, Pa., February 16, 1828, and while an infant came with his parents to Westmoreland county, in the same state where he grew to manhood. On October 25, 1850, he was married to Miss Susan Lynn and in 1865 they came west, settling on the farm six miles northwest of Savannah, where he died. The day of his death, October 30, was the 40th anniversary of this settlement.-- Savannah Democrat.
