M.P. Woods died at his home in this place at 11:55 p.m., February 1, 1892, from typhoid fever, at the age of sixty-eight years and two months. Mr. Woods was born in Dark County, Ohio, December 3rd, 1824, where he lived with his parents until he was seventeen years old, when he went to New Madison to learn his trade- that of a blacksmith. There he remained six years and then worked at Palestine and Hollandsburg, O., for the three succeeding years. In 1850 he came to this place, where he permanently located in 1852 in business. He was united in marriage in May 1856 with Miss Julia A. Fleming of near West Lebanon, and they together opened a home in this place, where, with the exceptions of about one and a half years, which they spent in Winchester, they have since lived. To them were born three children, one son and two daughters, all of which survive. Mr. Woods was a good citizen; always ready to advance what he considered was of public interest and a kind husband and indulgent father, always giving liberally to the support of public enterprises. The funeral services conducted by Rev. J.A. Patterson, were held from the family residence at 1 p.m., Thursday, after which interment was made in Hillside Cemetery. The bereaved family has the sympathies of our entire people in this sad hour of trial, which may serve to lead us nearer into a more perfect life. Died at the residence of Ransom Miller of Steuben Township, one mile west of Marshfield, Ind., Jonathan Tomlinson, January 30th, 1892, aged 58 years, 7 months and 7 days. In September 1856 he was married to Miss Adaline Minnear, and to this union was given two girls and two boys. Each of the girls preceded their father to the spirit land, but the boys yet remain. Some years ago Mr. Tomlinson united with the Presbyterian Church and for a time lived a Christian life. Rev. C.B. Mock conducted appropriate religious funeral services in the church at Marshfield, after which kind hands carried the remains and laid them to rest in the family cemetery, one mile southwest of Marshfield. Charles Raymond Sentman, only son of Charles W. and Belle Sentman, was born Aug. 8th, 1882, died Jan. 28th, 1892, aged nine years, five months and twenty days. Within a month these parents have followed to the grave two of their little ones. The scourge of diphtheria came into the family and under its blight little Mary withered, and passed from earth on the 2nd, inst. For three long anxious weeks, Raymond battled for his life until nature and skill could do no more. The disease conquered, and he fell asleep forever at 2 p.m. on the 28th. Raymond was known to everyone. His frank, bright face, as he tripped back and forth from school, his polite greeting and ready answer made him generally observed and interested all in him. In school he was bright, beyond his years. He cheerfully and faithfully performed his tasks and his daily effort was to do and to be good. His draped desk in the schoolroom was touching and a silent reminder of the affection borne him by his teacher and playmates. In his home he was an industrious child. His every minute was occupied in doing some useful act- or he was found with book in hand, for reading with him was an unsatisfied appetite. He was obedient, tender, thoughtful and loving, and the influence of his short life will long be remembered. George Bartlett, a former resident of this county and brother of Thomas Bartlett, died at his home in Brayton, Iowa, of pneumonia, induced by la grippe, Jan. 28, 1892, at the age of 69 years, 7 months and 12 days. He was born June 16, 1822 in Henry County, Va., and moved to this county with the famliy in 1830 and remained here until 1870 when he moved to Missouri and thence to Iowa, where he has since resided. He leaves a wife and two sons, the youngest one thirteen years old, and a host of friends and relatives, both at his home and here, to mourn his loss. Died February 6th, 1892, Mary M. Boggs, nee Mary M. Spray at her residence in Williamsport, Indiana, aged sixty-nine years, three months and twenty days. Interment was in the Mills Cemetery in Adams Township, February 7th, 1892. She was born October 16th, 1822 in Warren County, Ohio. Her parents, Thomas and Elizabeth Spray, came to Warren County, Indiana in 1829, where the deceased resided till her death. December 25th, 1851 she was married to Willliam Boggs, who died October 27th, 1877. Her two children, Calista and Dewitt Clinton, still survive her. At the time of her death she was a member of the Christian church and had long lived a consistent Christian life. Death, silent and unseen, has entered another home leaving heavy clouds of sorrow about the lives of its inmates and making new deep furrows of their souls. But the sunlights of hope, strengthened by a steadfast belief in man's immortality illumines their sorrow and wins them from despair. Charly Jones departed this life on the fifth of this month. Charles had been suffering for many years, being almost blind.
