Benjamin F. BULLOCK, died this morning at his home two miles west of the city, 
after a long illness caused by a complication of diseases. 

He was about 60 years of age and was a native of this county, being a son of George Bullock, 
who in pioneer days settled on a farm just this side of West Muddy bridge. Deceased was for 
many years a member of the Methodist church and no man in Shiloh township was more highly 
esteemed as a citizen, Christian, neighbor and friend. He served three years during the civil war 
as a member of Co. I, 44th Illinois Infantry and was at one time a member of Coleman Post. 
Dr. Peters, the post commander, requests that as many of the comrades as can do so , will attend 
the funeral at Salem cemetery at 2 p.m. tomorrow. Mr. Bullock's wife died about ten years ago, 
and four sons and two daughters survive him. 

Funeral services tomorrow will be conducted by Rev. Wm. A. Browder.
