Martin Nern formerly of this counry, but who recently lived near Alvin, Ill., was killed by lightning Monday, one week ago. Obituary. Mrs. Clara B. Lawson was born in Marshfield, Warren County, Ind,. Aug. 11th, 1860. She was the daughter of John and Nancy Nail and united with the M. E. Church of Marshfield in her seventeenth year. She was united in marriage to Oscar Lawson of Attica in September 1889, and moved to Silverwood, Ind., where she resided until her death, which occurred May 3rd, 1892. Deceased was brought to Attica for burial May 4th. The funeral discourse was preached by the minister in charge of F. M. Church of Attica, with which she had united during her residence there. She died happy in the Savior's love, feeling resigned to the Maker's will. It is indeed sad to part from those we love, but after all, when we sit and think of the trials and sorrows of this life, all is well. She has only gone on before to meet the loved ones she has left behind. Martin Nern, a former resident of this township, was killed by lightning near Kent in Newton County, Ind. He was shipped to Ambia and from there taken to Pioneer Grove Cemetery and laid by the side of his children, of which the oldest was killed by falling off of a log house, the next was killed by a neighbor boy, and his daughter was drowned near Alvin, Ill., two years ago, and now he is killed by lightning. This makes four out of one family.
