MATTINGLY, John

Mt. Savage, Oct. 29.
Mr. John Mattingly, one of the oldest and most respected citizens of this place, passed to his reward yesterday at one o'clock, after a lingering illness of Bright's disease The deceased was aged about sixty-five years and lived all his life in which he died. He was held in the highest esteem by all who knew him because of his uprightness, honesty and integrity. He always took an active part in any movement that would tend toward the uplifting or betterment of his native town. He was an ardent and life long member of St. Patricks Catholic Church and was most active in the cause of his religion, for which it seems that God has shown his appreciation by placing one of his sons in the priesthood and three of his daughters in the convent, who will no doubt by their fervent prayers be instrumental in obtaining for him the reward for which he labored all his life—eternal bliss and happiness in heaven. Besides his widow the following children survive: Rev Edward Mattingly of De Soto. Mo.; Daniel. John and Joseph. Pittsburg. Pa.; Baptiste, of Johnstown, Pa,. and Anthony, of this place; Ellen, Elizabeth and Mamie, who are in the convents belonging to this diocese and Miss Fannie and Jeanne this place. Mr. Mattingly is a descendent of the first settlers of Mount Savage whose names adorn a great many pages of the history of Western Maryland. The funeral arrangements have not been made, but in all probability it will occur on Wednesday morning the 31st.
