Obituary of John N. Fite 1822 – 1907

December 27, 1907

From the Democratic Advocate

John Fite, a well known farmer of Freedom district, died at his home Sunday night, at the age of 85 years. He was an eccentric character, and believed in neither preachers nor doctors.

He was paralyzed on Friday last. He was the last survivor of his family, his wife, who was Miss Lue O’Dell, having died six years ago. He was very well known in Baltimore, Howard and Carrroll counties, and despite his eccentricities, was well liked by a large number of friends.

He was buried at the old Baptist church, near Eldersburg, Tuesday. Services were conducted at his home by Rev. Reginald H. Murphy, the Baltimore county missionary of the Protestant Episcopal Church.
