Obituary. Samuel Horn, an old and respected citizen, died at his home in Prairie Township Tuesday, April 26 at 10 a.m. from complications of la grippe. The funeral services were held from the family residence at 10:30 last Thursday morning, conducted by the Rev. Wm Wilmer, after which interment was made in Hillside Cemetery. Mr. Horn at the time of his death, was 65 years and 11 months old, being born May 26th, 1826 in the state of Virginia. He immigrated with his parents at the age of four years to Franklin County, Ohio, where he resided until April of 1881 when he, with his family, moved to this county, settling near Walnut Grove. In 1847 he was united in marriage to Miss Ellen Purdue of Central College, Ohio, with whom he lived until death. To them were born eight children, five of whom, all grown-one girl and four boys still survive. Mr. Horn was a devoted Christian, having been a preacher of the "Bible Christian," or Newlight Church for twenty years, and having been pastor of one church in Ohio for eighteen years. Since moving to this county, Mr. Horn did very little on account of poor health. In 1886 Mr. Horn moved with his family in the hope of regaining his health to Tennessee, but being little benefited and dissatisfied with southern customs, he returned, after two years to this county, where he has since resided. He was taken with la grippe and being called to attend the funeral of the late Mrs. Lewis, suffered a relapse from which he gradually grew worse until death came on last Tuesday. He expressed himself as ready to go and his end was all peace. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to the bereaved family and friends, for in the loss of a father or mother, the truest of friends are taken.
