Answer To The Last Roll Call The funeral of Frederick Hoyer, mention of whose death was made in the Herald last week, occurred from St. Patrick's at 10 O'clock Monday morning and was attended by a large throng of sympathizing friends. The services were conducted by Rev. Father J. W. Cummings and the interment was made on the family lot in the Catholic Cemetery. As a mark of respect to their departed comrade, the members of Tolono G.A.R. Post, No. 334, attended the funeral in a body. John Fredrick Hoyer was born in Stotternhein, province of Sax-Weimer, Germany, July 5, 1830, and came to America on 1860, settling at Lafayette, Ind. He enlisted in the 135th Indiana Volunteer Infantry from that place in 1864, and served until nearly the close of the war, making an honorable record. After being mustered out of the service he spent several years in Wyoming, Utah and other western states, and in March 1869 settled in Tolono where he had since conducted a bakery and confectionary store. Two months after coming to Tolono he was married to Miss Anna Denney of Williamsport, Ind., who is left to mourn his death. One son was born to them, but died in infancy. Mr. Hoyer was a jolly, good-hearted, and whole souled gentleman and had not an enemy in the world. Though for two years prior to his death, he was a helpless invalid, he never murmured at his lot, but was always pleasant and ready to joke with his friends who called to see him. He was widely known throughout this section of the country and his death will be mourned by a large circle of friends. The bereaved widow who strived so earnestly to comfort her husband and administer to his wants during his prolonged helplessness is almost prostrated from grief and the tenderest sympathy of all goes out to her in her affliction. -Tolono Weekly Herald Last Monday a phone message from Pine Village summoned Coroner Armstrong to hold an inquest upon the remains of Mrs. Flora J. Donal, living two miles west of Pine Village. Not being able to go, he deputized Justice Sparks to take his place. on the following day, Tuesday, the inquest was held, Dr. Swank of this place making the examination, assisted by Dr. Kendall of Pine Village. Mrs. Donal was discovered between 11 and 12 O'clock on Monday, by Mrs. Caroline Cain, For whom the deceased was weaving a piece of carpet. The body was found in a bedroom, reclining upon a chair and a couch, the head resting upon the couch and had probably been dead a half hour.
