Jacob Martin Troutt


After an illness of some six or eight weeks Jacob Troutt 
passed away at 7:30 this morning, at his home at 316 Johnson 
Avenue.  Mr. Troutt came to this city many years ago from McLeansboro 
and opened up a blacksmith shop in this city.  He has remained in this 
business constantly until about two months ago when the condition of 
his health forced him to retire.  

Mr. Troutt, who was 70 years of age, had always been of a strongly 
religious nature and took much interest in the work of all churches.  
It was while attending the Bonnie Camp Meeting last August that he 
suffered an attack of something in the nature of a paralytic stroke and 
had to be brought to his home in the city in an ambulance.  Since that 
time his health has been rather poor, but he kept to his anvil and retained 
his active interest in church work as long as he was able to be about.  

He is survived by his wife and the following children: Henry, John, 
Milton, and Bert of this city and Marshall, who lives at Madison, Illinois.  
Also Mrs. Nellie Hollowell of Memphis Tenn., Mrs. Laura Underwood of 
San Bernardino, California, Mrs. Oma Mason of St. Louis and Mrs. Frances 
Byrd of this city.  Funeral Services were held in Mt. Vernon at the 
Church of God on Bell street.  Burial took place at Oakwood.
