The wife of Frank Hall of this place, died from consumption at the homoe of her father near Rob Roy in Fountain County Tuesday. The funeral took place Wednesday from the U. B. Church near the home residence. The summons came and an aged one answered. To him the call was welcome. Extreme suffering, long and severe had made him ready and willing to go. He had no fear of an angry God nor hope of immortality. Burl Cameron was an honest man; honest in everything that pertains to human existence. He would not pretend to believe that which his reason told him was not true and he had thought sincerely upon those doctrines and theories. My earlist recollections of my father recall his Christian devotion, family prayer and all that pertained to Chirstian life. But research and study convinced him of a mistaken faith and he scorned to be a hypocrite. He would not pretend to believe that which he thought untrue, perfectly willing for those who differed from him to have their own opinions. Nearly everyone who reads this will recall his genial good human and natural kindness, his benevolent disposition and that which mad everyone his friend. Enemies he had none. No one will say that he ever wronged them. If there is a life beyond and we are rewarded there according to the deeds done in the body he will be among the blest. Burl Cameron was born in Kentucky, Feb. 1st, 1814, removed to Indiana at an early age when the Indians were still here, lived at several places in the state. He married about 1838 to Elizabeth Watkins and to them were born eight children, three of which died in infancy and one, Charles died ath the age of twelve years.

He wiht his graddaughter, Lizzie Cameron remained at the old hime until Lizzie's marriage when he gave up housekeeping and has lived with William and George ever sinve. He died at the home of the latter Feb. 8th, 1895 at the age of 81 years and 7 days. Funeral took place at the school buildign at the cameron Spring Sunday Feb. 10th, 1895, conducted by Rev. Wm Wilmer when the body was laid to rest in the family burying tound. He passed to rest as peacefully as a child to sleep -George Cameron Mrs. Mattie McCabe, we learn, is improving nicely.
