Dr. John Henry Hallock, 90, one of Saranac Lake's oldest and longest residents passed away about 5 o'clock this morning at his home at 182 Broadway. He was taken ill last Thursday night.
Given six months to live by city doctors in 1888 when Dr. Hallock came to Saranac Lake from Syracuse, the former eye, ear, nose and throat physician completely outwitted fate and continued to practice medicine in the village for many years.
Before coming to Saranac Lake Dr. Hallock was a member of the medical staff at the House of Good Shepard [sic: Shepherd] in Syracuse. When his health failed, he and his wife the former Miss Ada Merrils, who died several years ago, took up residence in this village.
As his health returned, the doctor opened and increased a private practice here. He retired several years ago and continued to make his home at 182 Broadway.
Dr. Hallock was born in Ithaca, the son of the late John and Nina Marcha. His birthday was March 13, 1858.

Harrison Hallock, Jr. of Chicago, Ill.; two great grandchildren and one sister, Mrs. Henry Fisher of Spencer. Funeral services were incomplete at a late hour this morning.
