Hutchnson and husband, a sister; Wesley Lightner, of Belvidere, a nephew, and Mrs. Scott was 66 years old and her daughter tells us she cannot remember when her mother was not sick. No woman ever had more devoted children, the daughter especially, in her care for her mother. There are fourteen grandchildren in three homes to miss the joys of a grandmother.

Reverend Barber deilvered a short and appropriate address at the home, and Miss Birdie Opper and Mrs. Ruia Child sane some favorite selections. H.L. Dysart was in charge as the funeral moved to the Granville cemetery for the last rites for the departed loved one.

Obituary

Conrad Stehl, who died at his home in Mt.

Heart trouble was the cause of his death.  He had returned from Chicago about two weeks before his death, where he had been for treatment, but failed to find relief.  He had a large circle of acquaintances, and was highly respected by all.  The family is left to mourn the loss of a kind and loving father, and the community in which he lives has lost an honest and obliging neighbor.

Taken From the Henry Republican

Died at Florid, Putnam Co., Jan. 20, from an accident, Isaac W. Stewart, aged 42 years.

Putnam County News
The death of Mr. I.W. Stewart
On Wednesday of last week an accident occurred to Isaac W. Stewart, Esq. of Florid rendering him unconscious most of the time until Saturday night when he died. He was sawing logs at home with a buzz saw running of horse powder. As a slab came off, it caught on the teeth of the saw which was sent backwards with great force striking Mr. Stewart in the forehead over the right eye, fracturing the skull, and driving it into his brains, rendering him unconscious and causing his death. .................. Mr. Stewart was a prominent man in his town and county. Few stood higher in public estimation. Fewer had a clearer head or a larger heart. He was 41 years of age at the time of his death but he had such a keen perception of purity and justice, that he was entirely beyond a mean act and was a man everybody could confide in and whom the neighborhood sought as their friend and advisor. The attendance at his funeral indicated the depth at which his community was stirred. The Presbyterian church at Union Grove, much larger than any in Henry, was crowded and 132 carriages followed the revered dead to his earthly rest. All the country round for miles were present and the obsequies were very solemn and affecting. The infant class which he had taught for a long time at Florid were in the procession. ........The funeral took place  at 12 o’clock Monday at the Union Grove Presbyterian church of which he was an efficient and useful member.  It was estimated by those competent to judge that 700 persons followed his remains to the grave, being probably the largest number ever present at an occasion of the kind in Putnam County. Mr. Stewart was born and reared to manhood in this county, his father having been one of the pioneers in the first settlement of the county. He was in the 42 year of his age, being in the prime and vigor of life and at the time of the unfortunate accident, which deprived the county one of its most useful and valued citizens.

Putnam Record
August 24, 1899

Death of Mrs. Hiram Stickel

Mrs. Hiram Stickel died at her home in Princeton August 9, after a brief illness. But one day previous to her death, she was seized with a severe stroke of paralysis, from which she never rallied or regained consciousness, and which resulted in her death the following day. Most of her children and her only brother were at her bedside when death came. The funeral was held at their spacious home on Vernon avenue, Rev. Case, of Princeton delivering the funeral sermon.

At the close of this beautiful and impressive service, the cortege slowly wended its way to Oakland cemetery where the remains were laid to rest.

Mrs. Stickel leaves a husband and six children to mourn their loss, all of whom were present, except one son who lives in California. She also leaves one brother, William Bracken, who is now the sole survivor of their father's family. Mr. and Mrs. Stickel lived and reared their children about three miles west of Putnam, on the old homestead occupied now by their youngest son, William Stickel.

It was one of the most hospitable homes we have ever known of; a welcome or a home, was given to all who sought, and it would seem as if by way of a reward, yet we know too that it was earned by toil, that great competence was bestowed upon them and when declining years seemed to be approaching them, they left the farm and moved to Princeton to enjoy a more restful life, since which time their home has been a veritable Mecca for their children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and all their many relatives and friends, and now that death has entered this grand old home and taken away so much of its life and glory again they have journeyed thither to how the will to submission, while they "tarry yet a little while.".

Sarah J. Bracken Stickel was born in Columbiana county, O., May 27, 1832, and died August 9, 1899, being 67 years, 2 months and 13 days old. She was married to Hiram Stickel November 22, 1845. By this union, six children, four boys and two girls, were born, all of whom survive her. She united with the Christian church over fifty years ago, and was a very devoted disciple of the Lord, and a faithful honored member of his church.

The death of Mrs. Elizabeth (Studyvin), wife of Henry H.
