Ab Kiplinger, who was fatally injured in the cutting affray at Covington recently, died on Friday morning. Dee and his accomplice Murray are in jail, where they will remain until the court takes up the case. The infant son of Isaac Patton died of cholera infantum Tuesday, Sept. 28th, and was laid to rest in the Lyons Cemetery, aged 8 months and 16 days. The deceased, Mrs. Mary Conner, was born in Williamsport, Ind., Aug. 15th, 1834, and lived there the greater part of her life. She was married Sept. 25th, 1851 to Henry A. Conner. She died Sept 17th, 1892, at the age of 58 years, 1 month and 2 days. She is the mother of seven children, two of whom died in infancy, and five of whom survive her; Allie, Annie, Frank, Charley and Lewis. Her mother, Sarah Schoonover, who has been a constant attendant at her bedside, during her illness of three months, also survives her. She leaves three sisters, Mrs. P. W. Lewis of Williamsport, Mrs. W. H. Lestorof Indianapolis, and Mrs. D. C. Williamson of Rossville and a brother, J. Schoonover of Indianapolis. Some fifteen years ago, she removed to Southern Illinois, living there until about 8 years ago when she went to Rossville, after a residence there of about four years. She came with her family to Danville, since which time she made this place her home. In her younger days, she became a meber of the Methodist Church and lived a Christian life ever since. She gave evidence of a brighter home beyond, saying to weeping friends. "I am only going home a little while, and will be watching for you. My way is perfectly clear and I am ready. Let the will of the Lord be done."
