THE WESTERN STAR, 24 August 1900
Harbaugh - At his home in Alva, Oklahoma, on Tuesday evening, August 14, 1900, William N. Harbaugh, aged about 29 years.

The news of Will Harbaughs' death last week came unexpectedly and with a deep pang of regret to his many friends and acquaintances in this county. It was not generally known that he was sick. He had always been
in robust health until about two weeks before his death when he was seized with an attack of typhoid fever. Medical skill and good nursing proved insufficent to restore his bodily health and vigor, and on Tuesday evening, August 14, he succumbed to the call of the messenger, Death. Hemorrhage of the bowels was the immediate cause of death.

The deceased was a native of Washington co. Iowa. He came with his family to Barber co., Kansas, about 10 years ago, and a little later he came to Comanche co., locating in the southwest part of the county, and living here most of the time until two years ago when he moved to Alva and engaged in the feed and grain business withbhis brother George.
While a resident of this county Will Harbaugh made many friends. He was universally esteemed for his strict intergrity, his unflinching devotion to the right and for the many excellent qualities of character which, combined, made him a useful citizen and a good neighbor.

He leaves a wife and one daughter, Mollie, 5 years old. To them many friends extend comforting words and sincere sympathy in their sad hour of affliction.The funeral services were conductd on Thursday evening,
August 16, being in charge of the Modern Woodmen, of which order he was a worthy member. Rev. Greenless, of Alva, preached the funeral sermon. Interment took place in the Alva cemetery. Mr. Harbaugh carried $2000 insurance in the Modern Woodmen lodge.
