A well-known resident in this district passed away in the early hours of Tuesday morning last in the person of Mr. John JACK, of Magheracolton. Deceased, who was in his eightieth year, had been ailing for some time, the death of his wife about a month ago having affected him greatly. The late Mr. Jack was a direct descendant of the great John KNOX, of Scotland, being grandson of the late Rev. Andrew Walsh, of Ardstraw, who was a great-great-grandson of the Scottish Reformer.
