Wesley Swarts, an old soldier of this place, who has been a constant sufferer for the past year from heart trouble and asthma, died at his home about 3 p.m. Monday morning. The funeral services, conducted by the Rev. Wilmer were held from the residence at 2 p.m. Tuesday after which interment took place in Hillside Cemetery. Perry Clifton died at his residence two miles east of this place of pneumonia, after a few days illness. He was a little over 61 years of age. He leaves two daughters, one being the wife of Thomas Hinton, living near Carbondale, the other is unmarried and kept house for an old gentleman. Mr. Clifton was a good soldier and served through the war and recieved a good pension, which he rightly deserved, having lost an eye in the service of his country. The news of the death of uncle Coley Hall at 2 o'clock Monday, reached this place Tuesday morning. He has been long and favorably known in this locality and has served many years as pastor of the Baptist Church, being a great favorite of the people. The funeral services were held Wednesday at 12 m., interment being made in the West Lebanon Cemetery, under the auspices of the Masonic Lodge, of which he was an honored member.
