The obituary of John Scott - 1892-1918:

From "The Pittston Gazette," Pittston, PA - Sat., April 20, 1918


Death came very suddenly this morning as nine o'clock to John J. Scott, aged 25 years [born December 2, 1892], son of Mr. and Mrs. Winfield Scott [nee Margaret Keenan], at the family home, No. 25 Welsh Street, Sebastopol. Like the numerous other deaths that have occurred in Pittston recently, his death is attributed to pneumonia [note: death occurred during the great Flu Epidemic of 1918]. Apparently in the best of health, he was able to attend to his duties until last Monday, when he complained of feeling ill. The following day a doctor was summoned.

While his condition was serious for a few days there was no indication that death was near at hand and his passing came as a shock to family members, relatives and friends throughout Pittston.

Mr. Scott was a member of one of Sebastopol's leading families. He was an outside employee at No. 7 shaft, Pennsylvania Coal Company. He was a young man of sterling character and attractive personality. He was a member of the St. Aloysius society and the C. T. A. U. regiment.

He is survived by his parents and the following brothers and sisters: Charles, of Sebastopol; William, Agnes, Helen, a teacher in Jenkins Township schools; Mary, Anna, Margaret, Elizabeth, Teresa and Winfield Scott, all at home.

The funeral will take place Tuesday morning. A requiem mass will be sung in St. John's the Evangelist R. C. Church at 10:15. Interment will be in St. John's cemetery, Pittston.
