LESTER KENYON PASSES AWAY
Word was received here the latter part of the week from Bloomington, Ill., that Lester Kenyon, a former resident, was very seriously sick with pneumonia, with little hopes of recovery and word was received Monday that he had passed away early that morning.
The deceased was well known here having for several years spent his summers here at his old home.
He was a veteran of the war of the Rebellion.
Funeral services were held at Bloomington Tuesday and interment was made in the cemetery there beside his wife and daughter. Full obituary next week.
