She was 55 years, 11 months and 1 day old. The funeral services conducted by the Rev. D. A. Rodgers were held from the residence Monday afternoon, after which interment was made in Kickapoo Cemetery. Jacob Lebo, for more than thirty years a resident of this county, died at his home near Kickapoo, from heart disease, about 12:30 o'clock Wednesday morning. He has been a sufferer from this trouble for several years, and retired at night as well as usual. He was heard to make a noise and on going to him, his wife found him in the embrace of death. The funeral will be held from the residence today conducted by Revs. Wilmer and Rodgers, after which interment takes place in the Riverside Cemetery. This young lady was the only daughter and fourth child of Joseph M. and Lizzie Thomas. She was born near Hedrick in Jordan Township, this county, August 6,1865, and died at the home of her mother in West Lebanon at 4:05 o'clock Monday morning, October 28th, 1895, aged 30 years, 2 months and 22 days. Her childhood and early womanhood were spent upon the farm. Several years ago she attended school at this place about two years, making her home a part of the time with the family of W. B. Durborow. Eight years ago she was attacked by enlargement of the glands of the neck from which she was ill eight years, but was not confined to her room. A part of these eight years she spent with her brother George at Lafayette and during her stay there submitted to a surgical operation. During about four months of 1895, or the spring and early summer, she spent with her brother George and family in Rankin, Ill. She was conscious to the last moment, but did not realize she was so near death, and often spoke of getting well and telling her friends what she proposed diong when she recovered. Some months ago seh began rapidly failing and the end drew near. A short time before dying she became conscious that her departure was at hand and called each of her five brothers to her bedside and briefly conversed with them, said she hoped to be able to meet them all in heaven and bade each farewell. It was her dying request that Rev. Wm Wilmer preach her funeral discourse. She died of consumption. Although not a professor of religion her character was spotless and all her motives pure. She died in full hope of heaven and leaves a father, mother and five brothers besides many friends to mourn her death. The funeral servies were conducted at the residence Wednesday morning, Oct. 30th at 10 o'clock and the remains were interred in Hillside Cemetery at this place.
