Death of Samuel D. Herron, Jr.
Samuel D. Herron, Jr., died at his residence, Thirty-third street and Webster Avenue, late Tuesday night of last week, of heart disease, aged 62 years. The deceased was cashier of the Fourth National bank and one of the best known bankers in the western part of the State. Born in Pittsburg, he was closely identified with the city's growth. When a very young man he entered the City National bank as a teller, and from there went to the Iron City National bank when it was organized. Afterward he was connected with similar institutions in Oil City and McKeesport, and later returned to Pittsburg and was made cashier of the Fourth National.
In 1860 he married a daughter of the late Judge Pomeroy, of Franklin County, who survives him, together with a daughter and three sons, as follows: Elizabeth, Thomas B., cashier of the First National bank of Irwin. A. W., cashier of the Ft. Pitt National bank, Pittsburg, and Rev. Charles, pastor of the Troy, O., Presbyterian church. He is also survived by three brothers and one sister: A. C. Herron, of the clerk of courts' office; W. H., of the Adams Express Co.; S. W., of Grand Junction, Ia., and Mrs. J. M. Campbell. At the time of his death Mr. Herron was an elder in the Herron Avenue Presbyterian Church. A number of years ago he selected his pall-bearers, and as all were living, they carried the body of their friend to the tomb. They were George B. Hill, J. D. Nicholson, Samuel Ewart, Stephen C. McCandless, John G. Robinson and James Bailey. ---Pittsburg Dispatch.
