Mr. George Hay, one of the young business men of Attica, after an illness of several years, died at his home in that city on Wednesday morning, September 20th, 1899, from lung trouble. He was born in Attica february 6th, 1859 and was in the 41st year of his life. He leaves a wife and two children-Vera 12 years old, and George, 3 years. He was a member of Presbyterian Church for many years he was engaged in the jewelry business, and by means of close application, honest dealing and gentlemanly treatment of his patrons, he had built up a prosperous business. he had hosts of warm freids, not only in his own town, but wherever he was known. He was also an honored member of the knights of pythias and carried out in his everyday life, the principles of that noble order. His death is not only mourned by the good people of Attica, but also in this locality, where he was as well known. Last Friday at 3 o'clock p.mp. the last sad rites were performed at the family residence, Revs. Wm Wilmer and H.G. Ogden officiating. The interment was made in Riverside cemetary under the auspices of the Knights of Pythias of that place. Saturday, september 23, 1899, we laid to rest the tired little body of little Marion, son of Alonzo and Susie Catterlin. He had suffered for several weeks from the effects of scarlet fever, and although everything that loving freinds and medical aid could do was donem we were forced to give him into the hands of the pale horse and his rider and await the time when we will be permitted to again meet with him. He was a sweet and lovable child, the pet of the entire community, and the mourners were all who knew him. Little Marion had lost his gentle, loving mother more than a year old, she having died october 8th, 1896, at which time he was taken by his grandparents, mr. and mrs. Catterlin, who have devoted their energies to be indeed parents to the ,otherless little one. He was fortunate in having loving relatives who deemed it a pleasure to asssist in caring for him. The family of M. D. Thompson, grandfather of little Marion and for whom he was named, rendered al the assistance in their pwer and during his last sickness was almost continually present to render aid and assistance. Especially is this true of his aunt Miss Belle Thompson, whom his grandmother Catterlin desired the wrtiter to especially thank. we recognize with the Psamlist of old, that we may go to him but he will not come to us. Indeed would we be bereft were it not for the assistance given us in the living oracles that in the fullness of time we will be reunited family where partings are unknown. Marion S. Catterlin was born March 8th 1895 and passed to the beyond on Sptember 21st 1899. Funeral was conducted by Rev. J. Ellis assisted by rev. Ira Bigelow, the former of Montecello, Ind., and the latter of Indianapolis. Interment was in the cemetary near the Indiana Mineral Springs.
