When he was a year old his parents moved to Allegany Co., N. Y. where he resided with them until 1856. By 1856, he had acquired a complete scientific course of study in an academy.

He was persistent in his efforts, conscientious in every deed, and genial and true as friend.
His wife, and four daughters survive to mourn their loss. The daughters are Mrs. Ida. L. Clason, Mrs. Mattie Fallis, Mary Perry, and Mrs. Libbie Russell. The funeral occurred at 10 A.M.

PLUM, Louise and HACKER, Rudolph
DOUBLE SUICIDE: A Chicago Man Kills Himself and His Mistress
CHICAGO, June 6—Rudolph Hacker, a cigar manufacturer, and Mrs. Louise Plum, wife of Jacob H. Plum, were found dead in bed together in the woman's house at 114 North Halstead street today. The gas was turned on full from two jets and the circumstances pointed to a double suicide. But subsequent developments went to show that Hacker found the woman asleep in the house, and to prevent her leaving him, which she was contemplating doing, he turned on the gas and killed her and himself. The woman had been separated from her husband for three years because of her relations with Hacker. She had recently promised to return to her home, and it is suspected that when Hacker became aware of this he resolved upon the deed which ended both lives.

QUARTIER -- The Right Rev. Dr. Quartier, Bishop of Chicago, also died recently - thus suddenly leaving the neighboring diocesses of Indiana and Illinois without an episcopal head. -- New Albany Democrat  [Indiana State Sentinel.(Indianapolis [Ind.], May 04, 1848]

QUEAL, Robert F. -- It is seldom we regret any journalistic inability more than we do the absolute impossibility, caused by the crowded condition of our column, to reproduce a thoughtful, just and appreciative memorial of the late Rob't F. Queal (of Millview connection with the Seminole Lumber Company, who died at Evanston Nov. 2, 1883,) as it appeared in the N.Y. Christian Advocate of Dec. 20, 1883.  The notice fitly closes with the following merited tribute: - "Robert F. Queal was a manly man.  He was commanding in his presence, judicial in his mind, wise in his arguments, happy in his language, refined in his tastes, cultivated in his habits, gentle in his manner, modest in his bearing, firm in his convictions, generous in his nature, faithful in his friendships, unimpeachable in his motives, honorable in his instincts, and rich in his religious experience.  He lived a true prince, and died a true Christian.  Earth has lost one of its noblest laymen and heaven has gained one of its whitest souls." (Pensacola, The Pensacolian, 20 Jan 1884, p4.  Tr. by HH)
