THE WESTERN STAR, 19 March 1909

John Frank Spilman, aged 25 years, 10 months and 23 days, died at 3 o'clock p.m. on last Monday, March 15, at his home on the McIntire ranch, about 19 miles southwest of Coldwater. He was taken sick about a
week before his death with lagrippe. Complications set in, culminating in pneumonia.

Burial was made in the Coldwater cemetery on Wednesday, Rev. J. L. Guernsey of the M. E. church of this city conducting a brief funeral service at the cemetery.

Deceased came from Indiana to Comanche co. a little over two years ago and had since made his home here. On December 25, 1907, he was married to Miss Mary Lenertz, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Lenertz. Mr. Spilman was a hard working young man, honorable and trustworthy, and had a large number of friends in the
eastern part of the county where he was best known. The bereaved relatives have the sincere sympathy of all.
