Mrs. Honora Sloan, nee Belangea, was born in Williamsport, Warren County, Ind., April 27, 1866, and died November 5th, 1900, aged 34 years, 6 months, 9 days. She was married to George Sloan July 17, 1886. To this Union was born one child, Jennie Edith, who is left motherless at the age of eleven years. The principal part of the life of Mrs. Sloan was spent in Williamsport and in Warren County on the farm, though some of her married life spent in Lafayette and elsewhere. For about the last three years of her life she has been keeping house for her father in Williamsport. Mrs. Sloan's sickness lasted about one week during most of which time she was unconscious, and in that same condition she breathed her last. She leaves aside from the one daughter, two sisters, four brothers and a father to mourn her loss. Harry Albert, the infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Harrison Lyons of this place, died Saturday, November 10, 1900, from membranous croup. The child was born in Liberty Township and at its death was aged 1 year, 3 months and 17 days. Interment was made Sunday, November 11, 1900 at 3 o'clock p.m., in Hillside Cemetery. Dr. Osbourne was the attending physician. Mrs. and Mr. George B. Stump of Colorado springs, Colo., arrived at Boswell, Ind., Monday morning at 11 o'clock with the remains of their youngest son, Charles, who departed this life last Thursday at 11 a.m., from consumption of the lungs, the result of the la grippe. Deceased had been a sufferer for several years. Short services were held at the home of Artie Stump, in Prairie Township at 2 p.m. on Tuesday and interment was made in the Boswell Cemetery. Thomas Mather, aged 54 years and a bachelor, living with Mrs. Eliza Mather, an aunt, near Otterbein, was found dead in the yard last Saturday morning, where he had gone to do some work. He had the name of being eccentric, and when he was seen to lie down in the yard, nothing was thought of it. Not getting up, some of the family went to him and found him dead. The funeral and burial occurred last Monday at Green Hill. George Wainscot, a teamster, fell dead in a gravel pit near Lafayette Friday morning. This was the third sudden death in the city within 24 hours, the other two being Bennett Foresman and Emma Smith.
