Mrs. Jennie Davis was this morning notified of the sudden
and unexpected death of her brother, P.K. Crosnoe, which
took place at the home of his daughter, Mrs. John Morphew,
in Detroit, Mich., where he had gone to spend the winter.
Mr. Crosnoe retired in his usual state of health last night,
but when he was called for breakfast this morning failed to
respond and investigation showed that he had died sometime
in the night. Nothing was known this morning as the funeral plans.

son of the late Mr. And Mrs. Joseph Crosnoe of Jefferson county,

residents of the county. Mr. Crosnoe had not lived in Jefferson
county for some years, spending some of the time in Los Angeles.
Mr. Crosnoe, while a resident of Jefferson county, had many friends
and will be pleasantly remembered by all of them, both in the south
part of the county and in Mt. Vernon.

some years ago.
He is survived by six children as follows; Ed of Clinton, Ill;
Miss Lora, Los Angeles; Mrs. Ina Morphew, Detroit; John R. of
Salem, Ill; Miss Vesta, a teacher in the Decatur, Ill schools;
