Died: A friend contributes the following lines on the death of Walter C. Reynerson:
Once more death has visited us and taken from our midst our friend, Walter C. Reynerson. The deceased was born in Ripley county, Indiana, Sept. 19, 1880, and died July 12, 1899, aged 18 years, 9 months and 23 days.
He had been a sufferer from typhoid fever and stomach trouble for the past 2 months and until just before he died was thought to be getting along as well as he possibly could, when he took a change for the worse and was called away. He was taken sick at the home of his sister, Mrs. James Chadwick, of Elm Mills township, and was sick there for some time, when he got better and went home to his parents, W.H. and Mary C. Reynerson, who reside 6 miles north of Attica, Harper county.
The deceased leaves a father and mother, one sister and two brothers to mourn his loss.
The remains were laid to rest in the Baird cemetery north of Attica in the presence of a large concourse of friends, to await the resurrection day.
The deceased had at different times lived in this county and leaves a large host of friends who regret to hear of his death.
