      "John S. Boots is called by death. Prominent New Brighton citizen succumbs on the Fourth. Ill Several Months. Member of well known family and identified with fraternal lodges for years.

      "John Sheridan Boots, a member of an old Beaver County family, and a man prominent in the business and social life of his home town, New Brighton, died Monday afternoon at 1:24 o'clock, at his home, 510 Thirteenth avenue, after a long illness. Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the First Presbyterian Church and the burial will be in Grove Cemetery.

      "Mr. Boots was born in North Sewickley township July 9, 1867, and would have been 54 years of age had he lived until Saturday. He was a son of the late Edmund R. Boots. He is survived by his wife and four sons, Edmund R. Boots of East Orange, N.J.; Dr. Ralph H. Boots of New York City; Major N. Jay Boots of Dayton, O., and Dr. J. L. Boots of Seoul, Korea; also by two brothers and two sisters.

Moriah Council No. 2, R. & S.; Beaver Valley Commandery, No. 84, K. S., Scottish Rite Masons; Knights of the Maccabees, No. 190, and Social lodge, No. 351, K. of P. For many years Mr. Boots was engaged in the retail grocery business, but retired some years ago. He had since been prominently identified with the Maccabees. He was also a director of the Old National Bank of New Brighton."
