Description: Death of Mr. William NAUGHTON.Date: September 2 1879
Newspaper published in: Cairo, Illinois
Mr. William NAUGHTON, of whose protracted sickness we have often spoken, and for whose benefit a ball was to have been held soon in the Mystic hall, died on Sunday last at quarter past 11. He had many friends in the city, and as he was the victim of a lingering attack of consumption, those friends were furnished a number of opportunities to manifest the sincerity and genuineness of their friendship. His watch was raffled off the second time, Saturday evening - forty four points, thrown by a boy for Mr. M. MCGRATH, winning it. The money derived, came in due season to meet the expenses of burial.
