|The Guthrie Daily Leader|
|Tuesday, June 20, 1899|
John Sargent, proprietor of the Trade saloon, died suddenly at his home on Vilas avenue, in East Guthrie, about 5 o'clock this morning.
Deceased was about 35 years of age and came to Guthrie a little over a year agr from Windsor, Illinois, and a few months ago bought the saloon from Otto Hanson.
All day yesterday he was more or less complaining and at times appeared very nervous. He went home last night about 9 o'clock. This morning he awoke and complained of feeling ill, and his wife crossed the street to call in a neighbor. When she returned he was dead.
His death is supposed to have resulted from a complication of heart disease. The shock completely prostrated Mrs. Sargent, who remains in a critical, semi-conscious condition, and no particulars can be learned from her.
The body will be shipped to Illinois this afternoon or tomorrow morning. Deceased leaves behind only Mrs. Sargent, there being no children. He was an Odd Fellow and his live was insured on one or two benevolent societies but for how much the Leader was unable to learn.
