OBITUARIES

J. W. LINDSEY, died at East St. Louis Sunday April 17, at 1:30 p.m., 
aged 66 years. He had been dangerously ill for two weeks with paralysis. 
He leaves a wife and nine grown children. Fifteen years ago he occupied 
the farm now owned by Andy COOK in Pendleton township. He went 
from there to Columbus, Ohio, where, until about a year ago he ran a 
stationary engine. At that time his children urged him to remove to St. Louis 
where they could care for him. 
The remains will arrive here tomorrow by the L & N, from whence the 
interment will take place at Oakwood.
