Obituary of HUGH W. VANCE

Another pioneer settler and respected citizen of Comanche co. is gone! At 8 p.m. on Monday, July 1, 1907, Hugh W. Vance died at his home near Protection after an illness of about two weeks. Death was the result of an aggravated stomach trouble, with complications. Funeral services were conducted at 4 p.m. on Tuesday at the M. E. church in Protection, by Rev. I. W. Bailey of the Baptist church and interment was made in the
Protection cemetery.

Deceased was born in Roane co., Tennessee, on December 27, 1838, and was, therefore, 68 years, 6 months and 4 days old at the time of his death. He moved when a young man from Tennessee to Iowa where he lived until 1884, when he came to Comanche co., settling near Protection. In 1867 while in Iowa, he was married to Miss Emeline Noftsger, who survives him. To the union nine children were born, three of whom died in infancy. The surviving children are: Mrs. Lizzie Hungerford, whose home is near Alvaretta, Okla.; William and Lloyd, who also live in Oklahoma; Frank and Fred, also Mrs. P. A. Johnson, of this county.

Mr. Vance was a good citizen and neighbor. He was frank and honest in his convictions and upright in all his dealings. He died in the saving faith of a risen Savior. In their bereavement the grief stricken relatives have the sincere sympathy of all.
