JEFFERSON COUNTY IL 
OBITUARIES

Margaret LIEBENGOOD, wife of Jacob Liebengood, died at her home 
on East Main street, at 4:20 yesterday afternoon of typhoid fever, aged 
33 years, 10 months and 11 days. 

Deceased was the daughter of Calvin Atkinson and was born near Camp Ground, 
in this county, where many of her relatives still reside. Mrs. Liebengood was 
taken ill with typhoid fever July 29th and for several weeks lingered between 
life and death. An improvement was noted in her condition about 10 days ago 
and it was believed she had entered upon a period of convalescence but she 
sustained a relapse last Sunday and she grew rapidly worse from that time until her 
death. She leaves a husband and five children to mourn her loss. Of the immediate 
members of her family there are surviving two brothers and two sisters, all of whom 
live four or five miles northeast of the city, except, one brother who resides 
in Kansas. 

The funeral services were held at her late residence this afternoon. The interment was at 
Atkinson cemetery.
