At Lafayette, the 3-year-old son of William Cornell, residing at Transitville, fell into a tub of boiling water and was scalded to death. Obituary. Anna Esther Sager, who died at her home in Cheneyville, Ill., last Friday morning of congestion, was born at North Hickory Grove near Fowler, January 1st, 1871. At an early age she moved with her partents to this place where her childhood and school days were spent. It was our fortune to know her as her teacher in school work and we always found her studiously obedient, and doing her best with a careful regard for the feelings and rights of her fellow pupils. Her actions were ever those, which indicted a nature of a worthy one, and a character for emulation. She was married at the age of seventeen, February 25th, 1888 to B. L. Landon to whom she always proved a devoted companion. Two children were born to them, one of which stood on the other shore to welcome the mother's coming as she crossed into the beautiful beyond, and the other a bright-eyed little boy of fifteen months is left behind to cheer a father's lonely hours. A little over a year ago the family moved to Cheneyville, Ill., where Mr. Landon engaged in blacksmithing and where Anna died happy and smiling last Friday morning. The remains were brought here by the 2:24 train Saturday afternoon and the funeral services conducted by the Rev. Patterson were held at 3 p.m. in the Presbyterian Church, after which interment was made in Hillside Cemetery. The bereaved have the sympathies of our entire people in their sad bereavement.
