The remains of Isadore Parker of Ashland were brought to this village for burial Sunday. Mr Parker for many years at Conesville and a number of old friends gathered to pay their last respects. After he was laid to rest his grave with four beautiful floral pieces.

Ralph Disbrow
The Death Angel came to our midst on Saturday morning April 5 after a brief illness removed from out midst Ralph A Disbrow , a young man of only 34 years of age. Left in their sad bereavement are the morning friends, a young wife, a small son and daughter and an aged father and mother. Ralph was a man of estimable character and more than ordinary intellect. From the time of his youth his spare time, aside from manual labors has been devoted to literature and this knowledge his unsparingly used for the benefit of the community. He had capably served our town as supervisor and was just beginning his second term when the Great Reaper of Time came to close his books once for all. The funeral services were held on Wednesday, April 9th at the home of his parents, Mr and Mrs P Disbrow, Rev Morse, a former pastor, officiated at the services which were conducted under the auspices of the Gilboa Masonic Lodge of which he had been an honored member. Many beautiful floral offerings were banked on the costly casket as silent tokens of friendship from those unable to be present. His body was laid to rest in Gilboa Cemetery.

Mrs John Vanduser
(this may be a newspaper typo and should be “Van Dusen”)
Mrs John Vanduser died Thursday Dec 20 after a brief illness in her 30th year. Services were held in the M.E. Church. The deceased leaves a husband and two small children to suffer her loss . A large gathering of relatives and friends attended to pay their last respects to the departed. Mrs Vanduser was a native of New York State, her parents living near Catskill on the Hudson. It seems hard when death invades a home like this taking a mother whose care is so much needed. But there is no respective persons. Death is written in everything that has life. A learned writer has said: “We live by death.” It is not the decree of an angry God, or the chastisement of sin. It is when our natures have been overtaxed and the laws of health broken that our system gives up and we die. Some term it “passing over the divide” but it is all the same. It is the solemn fate that marks the closing chapter of life. Death in some instances appears more sad, because of the duties and cares that are left to those who can never take the place of mother.

There are words that speak of a quenchless love,
Which burn in the hearts we cherish;
And kindness that tells of a friendship proved
That will never fade or perish.
There are soft words murmured by dear, dear lips
Far richer than any other
But the sweetest words the writer ever heard
Is the blessed name of mother.
