James Goodwine, the largest landowner in Warren County, whose illness we have frequently mentioned, died at his home near West Lebanon, Sunday, Jan. 3rd, at the age of seventy-nine and one-half years. The fueral services were conducted by the Rev. Guthrie from the late residence of deceased at 11 a.m. Tuesday, after which interment was made in the West Lebanon Cemetery. The funeral was one of the largest ever held in the county. The little two-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Sentman died of diphtheria at their home north of town Saturday morning. The funeral services, conducted by Rev. Wilmer were held at 2 p.m. Sunday, interment being made in Hillside Cemetery. Mary Lawrence, infant daughter of Charles W. and Belle Sentman was born the 20th of October 1889; died January 2nd, 1892, aged two years, two months and thirteen days. This little child was lent unto its parents but briefly when He who said, "Suffer little children to come unto me," reclaimed His own. A sad and darkened home on earth remains, and a stricken family can only say, "Thy will be done." Little Mary's life was brief, but long enough to entwine her winning ways, her lively disposition, her affectionate nature around the hearts of all who knew her. She was one of those little ones, who at once compelled your love, and such are missed so much, when the call comes and-they are no more. Obituary. Martin Dannecker, whose death we record, was born in Leidringburg, Province of Wertumburg, Germany, June 5th, 1823, where his boyhood days and youth were spent after the manner of the youth of that country. In 1844, at about the age of twenty-six, he immigrated to this country, landing at Philadelphia, and began working at his trade, that of a stone mason. In 1852 he was united in marriage to Miss Christina Steinbrenner of Corning, New York. In after years to them were born four children, Henry, Mary, Mina and William, all of which are still living. After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Dannecker resided in New York until the later part of 1865, when they immigrated to Indiana, arriving at Williamsport where they settled in October of the same year. From that time until his death his life has been before our people, and it is without reproach. During this time he has filled numerous offices of trust, being a member of the town board a number of terms, and also a member of the school board, and was always found carful, honest and conscientious. He became a member of the German Presbyterian Church in early boyhood, and its teachings ever remained with him. He always attended, while able, the Presbyterian Church here. In August of 1888 he received a stroke of paralysis, which was thought to have been induced by heat, and his decline has been steady, but gradual since the above date. He was, however, able to be about most of this time until the past two weeks, since which time he grew worse until death came at 10:30 o'clock Saturday night, Jan. 2nd, 1892. The funeral services were held at 2 p.m. Monday from the family residence, the Rev. Wm Wilmer officiating, attended by a large circle of friends, after which interment was made in the family lot at Hillside Cemetery. The bereaved family has the sympathy of our entire people. Fifty-Six Years A Resident. Robert Pearson died at the residence of his daughter-in-law, Mrs. Henry Karst in this place at 10:45 Tuesday evening, December 29th, 1891, at the afe of 83 years, 8 months and 17 days, from rupture, a trouble he has had for several years. Mr. Pearson was born in Cecil County, Md., April 13th, 1808, his parents moving, when Robert was one year old to Wilmington, Delaware, where his boyhood and early life were spent, he learning the carpenters' trade. At the age of twenty-six. on the fourteenth day of December 1834, he was united in marriage to Miss Rebecca Barnes, they emigrating in 1835 to Indiana, settling in Warren County where the remainder of their lives were spent. To Robert and Rebecca were born five children, George, John, Elizabeth, Caroline and Julia. Only two of the family still survives, Mrs. Pearson dying the third day of March 1883 from which time Mr. Pearson lived with his son Johnny until his death, after which he remained with his daughter-in-law, now Mrs. Karst. To Mr. Pearson belongs the credit of building the second house north of the railroad in this place, and in which he spent most of his old age. At the call of his country in 1861, he enlisted Sept. 20th for three years' service as a private in company D, of the first regiment of Mechanic's Fusseleers, and was mustered out by order of the Secretary of War January 28th, 1862, leaving a good record to follow him. He died honored and respected by all. The funeral services, conducted by the Rev. Wm Wilmer at Mr. Pearson's request, were held in the courtroom at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 30th, '91, after which interment took in Hillside Cemetery. Fred Morgan, son of John Morgan, accidentally shot himself last week while out hunting. He was fourteen years old, and as bright and intelligent a boy as we had in the neighborhood. The shot struck him in the right side, just below the ribs. He lived about twenty minutes without any suffering, being conscious to the last. Warning given in the death of our boys like the above would seem to be enough, but boys will still carry guns, and continue to be shot. Shooting matches and gun clubs are being organized, and the excitement is being kept up, until we are led to wonder who will be the next.
