Born to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Wysong, twin boys, last Thursday, August 8th. One of them was stillborn which was interred the following day in the West Lebanon Cemetery. This good man and loyal citizen departed this life at the home of his son, John, in Fountain County on the 8th day of August 1895 at the advanced age of 77 years and 4 months. He was born in Butler County, Ohio, and was married in the same county in the year of 1843 to Miss Sarah A. Wallace. To this happy union twelve children were born. Three are dead; nine are living, five sons, four daughters, Andrew J., James A., John R., Robert F., Harry L., Mrs. Mary J Farmer, Catharine A Hickman, Sarah E. Rhode, and Ellen Hickman. His widow survives him. Four 39 years, he lived in Adams Township, most of this time on the farm on which his son Harry now lives. He was the last of his family having neither brother nor sister living. He was not a member of any church and belonged to no order, yet all who knew him will cheerfully testify that he was a good man, an upright citizen. He lived an honoable life and died in peace. The remains are at rest in the Quaker cemetery. --Pine Village News Thomas Beebe died at his home, in Old Town, this place, Sunday afternoon, after a long illness from a complication of diseases. Mr. Beebe was born in Williamsburg, Claremont County, Ohio, January 5th, 1832 and moved with his parents to Southern Illinois in 1834, locating near Robinson. The home of Thomas was there until the year 1869 when he with his family moved to Williamsport where he has since lived. He was united in marriage to Cynthia A. Bush in 1861. To them were born nine children, seven of which still survive. Thomas Beebe was always a conscientious, hard working man and thought much of his family who revered him. He followed for a number of years his trade, that of shoemaking. The funeral services, conducted by Rev. Eli Myers, were held from the family residence at 3 p.m. Monday, afterwhich interment was made in the Baumgartner Cemetery west of this city. The Review, with the many friends of the family extends sympathy to the bereaved family and friends in this sad hour of bereavement.
