HOBACK, Gertrude
This morning at 4:30 death claimed Miss Gertrude Irene Hoback, aged 23, daughter of Mrs. E. J. Hoback of Third avenue.  Yesterday afternoon she returned on No. 3 from Oak Hill, Fayette county, where she had been for the past six months the guest of relatives, and was feeling as well as usual, shortly after three o'clock this morning she was taken ill with neuralgia of the heart, which soon after resulted in death.  On her return her friends thought she was looking better than usual, little thinking how very few were her hours to live.  It is not yet known when the funeral will occur, but probably Sunday.  Her sister, Mrs. W. H. Armitage of Meadville, Pennsylvania, has been telegraphed for and is expected to arrive tomorrow.  Her mother, three sisters and four brothers survive to mourn her departure. -Huntington Advertiser, Friday Evening, July 7, 1899
