THE WESTERN STAR, 8 November 1884
Obituary of L. E. SIEMONS
To The Memory of L. E. Siemons.

Died, of typhoid fever, in Coldwater, Kansas, October 21, 1884, L. E. Siemons, attorney at law, aged 24 years and 5 months. He was a son of ex-congressman Col. W. F. Siemons, who resides at Monticello, Ark., and was a graduate of the Columbia University, D. C. He was an honored member of the Knights of Pythias and I. O. O. F. lodges. Young Siemons was a man of talent and genius being far more than a mediocre. He was well informed on most any subject of ordinary interest, and possessed a faculty for winning friends wherever his lot happened to be cast. In his last sickness, the noble boys and kind ladies of our magic little city, came to his relief and did everything in their power to alleviate his suffering and try to restore him to health, but it was all in vain. During the past year he was local editor on the daily "Beacon" at Wichita, which position he resigned to try his fortune farther west, but
'ere he appeared before a judicial bar, he was called to the higher court, before which we must all appear. His dear mother came to nurse her darling boy, but two hours before her arrival, his spirit had taken its flight and "crossed that borne from which no traveler returns." His
remains were shipped to Monticelllo, Ark., the old home of his boyhood days. Requiescat in pace.
