THE PROTECTION POST, 18 November 1920
Obituary of ROD CAMERON

Uncle Rod Cameron died at the state hospital at Larned, Kansas, Saturday afternoon, November 13th.

Mr. F. B. Field, his guardian, received a message containing the item of Uncle Rod's death, Saturday evening.

Up to a few months ago, Uncle Rod was a familiar figure on the streets of Protection. For many years he made his home with Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Thornhill. He was a pioneer in the west.

At the time of his death he was in his 84th year as he would have reached that age next April. About a year ago advancing age and infirmity combined caused a partial loss of mind for Uncle Rod and he was committed to the state asylum at Larned where he has since resided.

Uncle Rod was a kindly and a considerate man and in his younger and active years he took an active part in affairs.

Mr. Field and Mr. Thornhill drove to Larned Monday, and arranged to ship the body to Seaton, Ill., his old home for burial. Some two years ago when Uncle Rod visited friends and relatives in Seaton, he arranged for
his burial in the cemetery as well as for his tombstone. He was laid to rest by the side of a brother who died three years ago.

Uncle Rod Cameron has many friends in Protection and the Protection community who will regret to hear of his death, even though he had lived his allotted span of his life and more.
