"He just wanted to do his best. . . . It was a great loss because we were just starting out. Now I'm empty."

CAMP - Samuel Willington -- Died at Chicago, March 22 of heart disease, Samuel Willington Camp, aged 23 years, 2 months 18 days
The telegraph of Thursday a.m. of last week bore the sad tidings to the friends in Henry and elsewhere of the sudden death of Samuel Willington Camp at Chicago, on the night of March 22d, at 11 p.m. He was taken ill Tuesday afternoon while riding with a friend, and so violent was the attack that he was taken into a dwelling close at hand, a physician summoned and the sick man kindly cared for; but he rapidly grew worse, vomiting blood ensued, and as nothing could be done for him he gradually sank until death ended his sufferings in the hands of strangers, being sick but 30 hours. The coroner of Chicago was notified of his death, and a verdict was rendered "Death by heart disease."
Samuel was born in Henry, January 4, 1853, in the room over the store now occupied by Mr. Ed Kline as a gun shop, known since as "Morse's gallery." His boyhood days were spent in Henry, and his many social qualities, pleasant address and tender years, won him a warm place in the esteem and affection of all our citizens. His opportunities were good, and doting parents done all in their power for an only son. His father dying six years ago, a considerable estate was inherited, and with a portion of it he embarked in the drug business at Chicago with his brother-in-law, Mr. J. Finley Baker. This not proving remunerative, the store was sold to other parties and the partnership dissolved. Thence Samuel, for information, studied law points one year, with an able lawyer friend of his in Iowa, supplementing that with the expectation of going through a full course at Rush medical college, at which he was a student at the time of his death, and had been for upwards of two years.
The estate of Mr. S. W. Camp consists of $24,000 in notes and real estate securities. Also a farm consisting of 380 acres near Gilman, containing two dwellings, an artesian well, orchards, etc., well enclosed with hedge fence. Also an undivided 10 acre lot at Chicago, and 22 city lots at Melrose, in suburban Chicago. He had also three horses, a new carriage, and a large amount of other property not necessary to enumerate here. He had also a paid up life insurance of $10,000 on the New York Mutual. This estate doubtless goes to his sister, Mrs. J. Finley Baker, the only surviving member of the family. Mr. and Mrs. Manuel Snider responded to the telegram, and took charge of the remains at Chicago. The body was covered with a black satin shroud, very fine and white vest, and encased in a rich metallic casket, the top so arranges as to show the full length figure of the deceased. Delivered at the C., R. I. & P. depot, the cost was $205. The body arrived at Henry Saturday morning, and the funeral took place at the Presbyterian church, Sunday morning, the services being conducted by Rev. John Winn, from the text; Psalms 1xvi 10. "Be still and learn that I am God." The pall bearers were associates of Mr. Camp during his life time, consisting of Mr. George Guyer, Mr. L. E. Ellsworth, Mr. B. Crane, Mr. H. Ketchum, Mr. William Scholes and Mr. Lucian Eulver. The church was thronged with sympathizing relatives ant friends. The services were unusually impressive and the singing of the choir very sweet.
Mr. and Mrs. J. Finely Baker, the latter the sister of the deceased, came on from Philadelphia, reaching Chicago in time to accompany the remains to Henry. At the funeral, Mrs. Baker was so overcome with grief that she had to be taken from the church, and was very kindly cared for at the residence of Mr. Frank Kleinhenz. To her the affliction is very great, for within six years, she has followed to the grave a father, a mother, a birdling of her own household, and now her only brother. Those present from abroad at the funeral besides those already mentioned were Mrs. N. Griffin and Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Griffin of Castleton; Miss Jennie Ward of Wyoming, Mr. Tapping and Miss Bell Tapping of Peoria, and Samuel Snider, who has spent the winter at Scranton, Pa.
Of the causes for Mr. Camp's death, just one word need be said. It pains us to know that he had to die at so early an age. But Chicago life is intoxicating, and one is drawn into the maelstrom from whence escape is impossible, hardly e'er he is aware of it. Samuel had noble qualities of head and heart, and we drop a tear over the grave now so fresh and green from youthful indiscretion - that it must be so. The lesson of warning is, shun the short comings of others, for we are poor human nature likewise. Let us beware, lest we fall - choosing that better part "that shall not be taken from us."

CANNON - Catherine T. Cannon (nee Bolger), 74, a homemaker and former bookkeeper for a candy-distribution company, died Thursday in her Niles home.
A native of the West Side, Mrs. Cannon graduated from Marshall High School and began her career as a bookkeeper with Turner Bros., a mirror and picture frame company. Mrs. Cannon had stopped working to raise their children, but she returned to employment as a bookkeeper in 1957 when her husband, John, opened Arcan Distributors on the West Side. She remained with the company until it closed in 1971. The couple were also active in the Peleliu Survivors, a group of World War II veterans of the battle for Peleliu, an island in the South Pacific.
Mrs. Cannon's daughter Cathy Cannon recalled that although her mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in August, she insisted on attending the group's latest reunion in September. "It brought some closure to these relationships that she and my father had maintained. . . . I know she died a more peaceful death, knowing that she could go back and see these people," Cathy Cannon said. Mrs. Cannon was also active with the Council of Catholic Women at Immaculate Conception Parish, and through the years served the mothers clubs at Resurrection and Notre Dame High Schools.
Visitation was in Colonial-Wojciechowski Funeral Home, Niles. Funeral Mass was celebrated on Dec. 2 in Immaculate Conception Church. Burial was in Maryhill Cemetery, Niles. [Chicago Tribune (IL) - Monday, December 1, 1997 - Sub. by Src. #10]
CANNON - John P. Cannon, 74, a retired wholesale distributor of candies and sundries, was a survivor of the World War II South Pacific battle for the island of Peleliu. Last year, he attended the 50th anniversary commemorative ceremonies for those who were killed there.
A resident of Niles, he died at home. "He had just had six weeks of radiation treatment for lung cancer when he went back to the island for those ceremonies in September 1994," said his daughter, Cathy. "I went with him and remember him stating why he went. It was because of the friends he had buried there." His daughter quoted Mr. Cannon as saying, "The rest of us have been able to see our children and grandchildren. I wanted to go back in order to pay tribute to those who didn't get that chance."
The 2-mile-wide coral island lies 800 miles southwest of Guam and provided an ideal landing strip first for the Japanese and after the battle for the Allies. The fight for it started in September 1944 and lasted two months, with the American-led forces suffering 1,618 dead and 6,965 wounded. Mr. Cannon, an ordnance man for the Marines, arrived on the beaches five hours after the battle began and stayed on the island for a year and a day. After the war, he operated Arcan, a distributing firm that served the greater Chicago area.
Survivors, besides his daughter, include his wife, Catherine; a son, Jay; another daughter, Judy Kantorowicz; and four grandchildren.

CARTER -- Eugene Carter, one of the best known billiard experts in the world, died at his home in Chicago, Jan. 2. Lung trouble, following a severe cold contracted last July, was the immediate cause of his death. No player perhaps was better known among billiard players on both sides of the Atlantic than Carter. He was a brilliant manipulator of the ivory balls and was a remarkable three-cushion player, although he preferred balk line for big matches. Carter followed the game from childhood. He was born in Toledo forty-eight years ago and began to play his favorite game when sixteen years old. As far back as 1873 Carter was known for his ability in billiards. He was familiarly known as “You Know Me Gene,” because he never refused a match.

CLARK, Irene--Death of a Pioneer Who Came West in 1837 Mrs. Irene Hibbard Clark, who died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Mary Irene Dye, Riverside, on Saturday, May 30, was born in North Hadley, Mass, in 1809. She descended from sturday, old New England ancestry. The town of Hadley was founded by her grandfather. Mrs. Clark was one of the twenty families who in 1837 migrated to the wilds of Wisconsin, the then "far West." Chicago was then a town of but 500 inhabitants. After a stormy lake voyage Mrs. Clark was landed at Milwaukee in a small boat, the vessel being anchored a mile from the shore. That night Vail's "Cottage Inn," sheltered the group, the ladies' rooms being partitioned by sheets, and beds upon the floor. She loved to recall an early trip on the first railroad built in this country before she came West, and also of the building of the first telegraph through Waukegan, Wis., her then home, where the skeptical neighbors talked of the absurd and crazy notion of "sending letters by lightening." Later three of her children chatted over the wires from as many cities and one daughter was the third or fourth lady operator in the country who had charge of an office, a novel case in these days. Jeremiah Porter, who found the First Presbyterian Church in Chicago was a fellow townsman of her native place, and the families were close friends. Mrs. Clark's marriage was an exceptionally happy one. She was widowed thirty-two years ago, after almost 40 years of wedded life. (The Daily Inter Ocean, Chicago, IL June 8, 1896 - Sub. by Src #165)

COLLINS - Morris Allen Collins
Cremated On The Lake Shore.... A Strange And Dramatic Midnight Scene Near Chicago.
CHICAGO, July 17. – A strange scene was enacted last night on the south shore of Lake Michigan. At the base of a great ridge of glistening white sand near the water's edge there was lighted a funeral pyre and all that was mortal of Morris Allen Collins, President of the Dallas (Texas) Suicide Club, was by his own written request reduced to ashes. The Whitechapel Club of this city had charge of the strange ceremony. The torch was applied to the pile of pitch-soaked wood at 10:50 o'clock, and during the five hours that the body burned, impressive ceremonies were performed, consisting of music, recitations, and addresses. Collins committed suicide July 8 by shooting himself through the head in his room on West Madison Street. He was forty years old, the son of the Rev. Samuel Collins, a Methodist minister, who settled in Texas early in the forties. Left an orphan early in life, Collins seems to have had a constant struggle with poverty. He came to Chicago practically penniless in 1886, and afterward became a writer for the Labor Enquirer, owned by Joseph R. Buchanan. On the register of the Whitechapel Club his signature appears: "M.A. Collins, President Suicide Club, Dallas, Texas."
Collins was seriously injured in October, 1890, by being knocked down by an engine on the Northwestern Road, and the injury probably affected his mind. It was followed by a mild epileptic attack, which afterward recurred with increasing intensity and frequency, until he became despondent and finally ended his life. It is said that he made two unsuccessful attempts to accomplish his purpose with morphine before he at last succeeded with a pistol. He left a letter to his closest friend, Honore Joseph Jaxon, directing that his body be turned over to the Whitechapel Club for incineration. The scene of the cremation was by far the most desolate spot that could be found in the vicinity of Chicago. The building of the funeral pyre occupied eight men's time during the greater portion of the day. When completed it stood 18 feet long, 8 feet wide, and 20 feet high. In addition to the members of the Whitechapel Club a considerable number of their friends from the city were present at the ceremonies, besides half a hundred country people attracted by curiosity. The body of Collins, draped in a white robe, was taken from its casket and placed on top of the pile. The Whitechapel's lighted their torches and marched three times around the pile, singing a dirge. The fire was started. The club chaplain, W.C. Thompson, delivered a characteristic address, which was followed by other addresses by members. Mournfully the harp and zither played the sad notes of Ernst's "Elegy," and a funeral sermon was delivered by Dwight Baldwin. At last came the ceremony of gathering the ashes. With trowels made and plated for the occasion, the few charred remains of the body were reverently placed in the temporary urn. Bearing this, the company returned to the city long after sunrise this morning.[Source: The New York Times, (New York, NY) July 18, 1892]

COOK - Mrs. Minnie Cook and infant
At Chicago, Dec. 2, of heart disease, Minnie, wife of J. Lewis Cook, formerly of Henry. Also an infant son buried with the mother. Interment at Snachwine.
Snachwine - On Saturday last the morning train brought from Chicago J. Lewis Cook, his two daughters Clara and Viola, with all that remained of the dear wife and mother and infant son, she having died suddenly of heart disease on the morning of the 2d inst. Mr. Cook, son of Wm. F. Cook formerly of Henry, went to Chicago after the close of the war, where he married Miss Minnie Blake an English lady, who was loved by all who knew her, and who filled the place of wife and mother second to none. It has been Mr. Cook's sad duty since his residence in Chicago to bring the remains of six members of their family for burial (his father and two sisters having been buried in our cemetery before they left) and there were his only brother Dewitt C. Cook, two half brother Bonham boys, then a beautiful little daughter, and lastly the wife and companion, which is a crushing blow; his grief and anguish was seemingly too great for utterance. The funeral took place at the "Church of Christ", Elder Parker conducting the services on Sabbath at 11 a.m., and those who looked into that beautiful casket and seen those beautiful features of marble whiteness (the mother with her babe folded lovingly in her arms, as if it was too precious to leave behind,) will not soon forget the impression made upon them. Lewis having spent his childhood days in this vicinity, has very many warm friends who sympathize with him, and would were it possible, do anything for him to assuage his grief; but who can only commend him to God "who doeth all things well."

CRAM -- Class of 1859 - JACOB ABBOT CRAM, who for some years past has been a member of the Chicago Bar, died suddenly in that city, from the effects of an overdose of hydrate of chloral, on the 5 April last. He was born at Hampton Falls, N.H., 24 April, 1836. He was fitted for college at Exeter Academy, and entered the class of 1859 at Harvard University about the close of the freshman year. He was a very strong, clear-headed man, and soon took rank among the ablest of the class, distinguishing himself particularly in debates, lectures, etc., before the class societies. He was for one year an editor of the "Harvard Magazine." At all times he impressed those with whom he came in contact as eminently qualified for success at the bar, and particularly as a prominent candidate for the bench, should he live to ripen into maturity. He attended after graduation a course at the Harvard Law School, and then went to Chicago to practice in his profession; and it was there that he continued to reside until his death. He was never married. [Source: The Necrology of Harvard College 1869-1872; published 1872; - tr. by K. Mohler]

CUMMINGS, John Patrick-- of Chicago, a former Delavan boy met with an accident Sept 17, shortly after 1pm from which he died in St Luke's Hospital about seven hours later. Deceased was Supt. of the Holland Construction Company and had in charge at the time of the erection of the structural iron on the Boston Store, State and Madison Streets, Chicago. It was while inspecting this work that the accident occurred. He was crossing the eighth story on boards laid down for that purpose, when they broke under his weight hurling him to certain death 60 ft below. The poor battered bleeding body was picked up and tenderly conveyed to St Luke's hospital, where heroic measures we resorted to, but without avail as he died at 820pm, seven hours after the fatal fall. The subject of this sketch was born in Darien in 1862. Moved to Chicago twenty years later, where he has since resided. Was married to Miss Sarah Brophy of Mukwaonago. To this union were born two children, Mattie and Willie aged 15 and 9 yrs respectively both of whom survive him. The wife after a protracted illness covering several months passed from this world's cares some two years ago. Besides his two sons there are left to mourn, a mother Mrs. William Cummings of Delavan; five brothers, Richard, William, and Henry of Chicago; James, Chas and two sisters. Lizzie and Mrs. C Gosso of this vicinity. The remains at the request of the heart broken mother was brought back to the old home for burial accompanied by his two sons, two brothers, William and Henry and the undertaker Mr. P J Cummings of Chicago. The vast assemblage at the station awaiting the final home coming of their friend and former associate attested a love and esteem that twenty years absence could not sever. After short services and a consoling sermon by Father Buckley the body was laid to rest in the family lot in St Andrews Cemetery. (Submitted by Src #156, The Chicago Tribune Date: Sept 18, 1903)
CUNNINGHAM, Ann Garrity -- died Chicago Illinois Dec 22, 1890:
Mrs. Ann Cunningham, widow of the late Henry Cunningham, died Sunday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock at the residence of her daughter, Miss Annie Cunningham, No. 247 East Superior Street.
Mrs. Cunningham, whose maiden name was Garrity, was born in Westport County Mayo Ireland Feb 2, 1813. The family were of the ancient Irish stock, and with almost the entire race were compelled to migrate into the wilds of Connaught by Cromwell during the middle of the seventeenth century. In 1833 the family, consisting of father, mother, three sisters and four brothers came to this country, landing at St Johns, N.B. In 1835 the subject of this sketch visited some relatives in Boston, when she met, renwing the attachment of their youth, her late husband, Henry Cunningham. Marrying the same year, they moved to Chicago in 1836 and went to live at Waukegan in 1850, returning to Chicago in 1857, where she has lived continually ever since.
Mrs. Cunningham was well known and highly respected by all of the old settlers. For thirty-eight years she has been a devoted member of the Church of the Holy Name on North State street. She was quiet and unostentatious in daily life, but it was nevertheless a life devoted to the highest Christian charity, never letting her left hand know what her right hand was doing. She was a member of the Married Ladies Sodality and of the third Order of St. Francis. She was ill for two months. Her life went out amid all the Christian consolation of the Catholic Church. She leaves three daughters to mourn her loss, Eliza, wife of Mortimer Scanlan, Mary and Annie Cunningham, and a large number of devoted friends. Her funeral will take place at 10:30 o'clock to the Church of the Holy Name, thence to Calvary Cemetery [Inter-Ocean, December 23, 1890 - source #122]
