Trustee Alfred Clem died Thursday morning of last week at his home in Mound Township, after an illness of over seven weeks from stomach trouble. The funeral services were held Friday morning at 10 o'clock. Mrs. Zufall, better known as grandmother Zufall died at the home of her son John Zufall of 'Possum Run, Tuesday morning of heart disease. She had been troubled with it for several years, but peace came quickly and easily. She left several children to mourn her loss. There were none of them present at the time of her death, except John Zufall. She has two daughters residing in Ohio, and two sons in Lafayette, Ind. She was sent to Lafayette Wednesday there to be laid to rest by the side of her husband, who had gone before. She leaves a host of friends to mourn her loss. Who has been well known among us for many years was born near Lexington, Ky., in 1830 and died at his home north of this place Feb. 13th, 1894. He moved to this state becoming a resident of Clay County in 1852 and from thence he moved to Fountain County, where he was united in marriage to Caroline Pomeroy in 1853. His young wife was spared to him less then three seasons, quick consumption claiming her. In 1859 he was united marriage to Mary Shidler and to them three children, two girls, who are dead, and a boy, Green, living in Liberty Township, were born. In 1861 at the call of his county, Mr. Hogue enlisted in Company E. of the 86th Ind., and served faithfully for three years, being a loyal soldier and a true citizen. His death was the result of heart disease contracted while in the service and the end came quickly, he having been on our streets on Saturday before his death on Thursday. The funeral services were conducted from the home on Wednesday by the Rev. Myers and the remains were laid to rest in Hillside. We learn that Mr. Hogue, just previous to his death, was converted and went into eternity happy in that peace which comes only when we fully trust in God. Little Hazel Hartz, daughter of Alonzo and Lizzie Hartz, was born Dec. 11th, 1893, and died at or near her home in Liberty Township, about 6 o'clock p.m., Sunday Feb. 4th, 1894. The parents had taken the babe and gone to visit some relatives. They noticed it fretted more than usual in the afternoon. When they started home in the evening, it would nurse awhile and then cry. This continued until they were almost home, when the crying ceased, and they supposed it had gone to sleep. When they arrived home, they discovered to their horror that it was dead. The supposition is that it died of cramp colic. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Eli Myers at Carbondale on Tuesday at 10 o'clock a.m. The remains were taken to Williamsport Hillside Cemetery for interment. The bereaved parents have the deep sympathy of the whole community in this their sad loss. May they look to God for comfort, "He, who doeth all things well."
