Dick Clark of Liberty lost his infant boy last Friday form lockjaw. The burial services took place on Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. Dick have the sympathy of all in this their sad affliction. William Cobb, the oldest citizen in Pine Township was born in South Carolina, June 24th, 1805 and died at the home of his son, Thomas about 2 miles northwest from Pine Village, Sunday evening, April 7th. He was married to Alice Rhode and to them were born nine children, three of whom survive. In the strength of his younger manhood, his industry aided very much to redeem this country from the wilderness and make it the happy resting place of those who should come after him. A good citizen has gone from among us. He was a kind father and his happy trait is plainly seen in all the children. His age was 89 years, 9 mo. and 14 days. He raised a respectable family of children, and left them as an inheritance, a good name. He had no fear of death; he had a hope of immortality. An impressive service was held from the home of his son, Thomas, April 9th, at 10 a.m., by Rev. D. A. Rogers, after which the remains were laid to rest in the Quaker Cemetery four miles south of Pine Village. The large number of friends and neighbors who attended the funeral showed the high esteem in which he was held by those who knew him best. Words; but feebly express our regard for this man of truth; his every word and act was marked by fidelity and principle. He rests by the side of the devoted wife and mother until both shall receive the call to come forth to a new and better life. Cora Irene Lutz, the little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Lutz, was born May 3rd, 1894 and died April 3rd, 1895 from the bronchial pneumonia, the effects of la grippe. The little one was sick some seven weeks and her suffering was very great, being not so much like a babe through all but as one much above her years. Little Cora was a sweet child, the only daughter of the fond parents and the idol of the whole family. The funeral services were held from the residence the 16th inst. after which the remains were lain to rest in Hillside Cemetery. The bereaved parents have the sympathy of all in this sad affliction. George Kiger, A highly respected citizen of the county living near Green Hill, met with a sudden and horrible death in this sawmill near the above place Tuesday afternoon. It seems the mill was running and George was looking after some duties about the engine with a large, lever or spike in his hand. The end of this caught in the flywheel and Mr. Kiger was carried over dashed upon the stone foundation to the marchinery crushing his skull from which he died in about twenty minutes. The funeral services were held today and interment took place at Armstrong Chapel.
