Little Mattie Ethel the daughter of Edgar and Katie Martin, aged 3 years, 7 months and 4 days, died at the home of her grandparents Nov. 20th, 1894 from congestion.

Eli myers after which the remains were laid to rest in the Hillside cemetery Wednesday the 21st about 12 o'clock The two-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Holtz of this place, died on Wednesday of last week after a month's illness of cholera infantum. The loss is a most severe one to the young parents, as it was their only child. The funeral occured Thursday, interment being made in the West Lebanon Cemetery. After an illness of only two days from congestion of the stomach, E. J. Murray died at his home in this place last Saturday about 11 o'clock. Mr. Murray was taken ill on Thursday and retired to his bed, and his condition was not thought to be serious, consequently the news of his death came as a great shock to our people. Mr. Murray had been in delicate health for several years. He was one of the West Lebanon's leading businessmen, being manager of the (*cannot read) Gods Company, which position he had held frmo the organization. The deceased was a lifelong resident of this township, being born at the old family residence southwest of this place. He leaves a wife, three children, one sister and two brothers to mourn his death. He was a consistent Christian, being a member of the Christian Church and a member of the Masonic and K of P Fraternities. The funeral occurred Monday afternoon and the remains were laid to rest in the West Lebanon Cemetery, the K of P Lodge conducting the srvices. All business houses of town were closed during the funeral. The subject of this sketch Carrie E. Chavers, daughter of Matthew Siddens, was born Jan. 17th, 1871 and departed this life from typhoid fever Nov. 19th, 1894, aged 23 years, 8 months and 23 days. She was united in marriage to William H. Chavers, Oct. 8th, 1890 by the Rev. Colbrath Hall of West Lebanon, with whom she lived happily until death called her home. Carrie always had a bright, cheerful smile and kind word for everyone, was a kind, obedient girl at home and a loving wife and mother and her death has left a vacant place in our hearts that can never be filled, and a home with a husband and two bright little boys, Guy and Herman, to feel the loneliness of a home without a mother. We have a promise of one whose promises are sure if we only put our trust in Him of a meeting some sweet day, bye and bye.
