Notes for ELIZABETH CLEMENS:

FLORID, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, 1915
Mrs. Eliza Beck, widow of late Simon Beck, died shortly yesterday afternoon at the home of her son Simon Beck in Florid. Mrs. Beck lived to a ripe old age and was an early settler and highly respected citizen of Putnam County. We have not learned when the funeral will be held. Obituary next week.

PASSING OF ELIZA BECK
Eliza Beck, daughter of Peter and Eliza Clemens, and wife of Andrew Beck who preceded her 22 years ago, was born in East Hanover, Lebanon County, Pennsylvania in 1825 on October 30th and died January 26, 1915 at the age of 89 years, 2 months and 26 days. She was the mother of 4 children, 3 sons and 1 daughter. One son S.P. Beck remains, the others preceding her. Mrs. Kate Eisenhower of Tremont Illinois is the only sister and survivor of the family being now in her 83rd year. Mrs. Eliza Beck of Pennsylvania came to Florid in April, 1865 - just at the time when Lincoln was assassinated. At 12 years of age, she became a member of the Lutheran Church. On coming to this county, she united with the German Evangelical Church and continued such membership until death. Having lead a quiet and consistent Christian life, she has now passed to her reward. This what her pastor, Reverend E. W. Eastmond has to say of her:

" In January of last year, I came to Florid to hold Evangelical meetings for one week, Mr. Beck being my host. Grandma Beck, because of the inclemency of the weather, could not attend. She said "I can pray for you." and asking for my text, she would search her old Dutch bible and pass comments. Her desire and prayer I might sum up in these words of scripture. I desire to part and be with Christ which is far better. God answered her prayer, and on Tuesday, January 26, she fell asleep in Jesus."

His son Jer of Chicago had been visiting his father, who took him to Spring Valley Friday to take the train for home. He seemed as well as usual and nothing is known as to what hour death came as the first intimation any of the family had was when someone went to call him to breakfast.

Memoriam
Mary, wife of Peter Clemens was born in Cumberland County, PA, October 16, 1840 and passed away at her home in Florid, Illinois, January 30, 1915, being at the time of her death, 74 years, 3 months and 12 days old. Five children were born to this union, Harry, Lida, Samuel, John, and Mrs. Emma Deininger. All of whom were with her during her illness and with the exception of Lida, who passed away while yet a young woman. All that loving hands of children and friends could do to alleviate the suffering of this dear wife and mother was done but she had lived her allotted time and her spirit departed to the one who gave it. She was willing and anxious to depart and desirous to be a peace with all mankind as the writer can testify. For many months she had been confined to her home on account of ill health but was devoted to the interest of the loved ones. Her last illness was attended by intense suffering which was bore with patience and she wished to make the least trouble for those who cared for her. She will missed by those who are near and dear to her especially by the aged husband and son who are the only ones remaining in the old home. She leaves to mourn her loss, her husband, three sons, one daughter and 17 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.........

Death of Jerry Beck

Word was received here last Thursday morning that Jerry Beck of Granville was dead. Mr. Beck lived in Hennepin a year or two several years ago and his early life was spent mostly on a farm near Florid. Consequently he was well known in this locality. Some years ago he had the misfortune to break one of his legs, which never properly healed, and gave him much trouble, necessitating the use of crutches most of the time to enable him to even walk about. Mr. Beck and his wife have been conducting a boarding house in Granville ever since the work of sinking coal shaft in that place was commenced. About a week before his death, he fell from the porch of his home and broke his other leg. A doctor was called, who set the broken bone, and placed the limb in a plaster cast. But gangrene set in and last Wednesday he was taken to St. Mary's hospital in LaSalle to have the leg amputated. The operation was performed Wednesday afternoon, but the shock was too great for the victim to stand, for he was already in a very weak condition and on Thursday morning at 6:30 he passed away. An inquest was conducted over the remains Thursday afternoon, and a verdict of accidental death was returned, but the primary cause was gangrene and the shock resulting from the operation.

Notes for JULIA A. ALLEN:
West Oxbow, Aug. 7, 1890
It is with sadness that we chronicle the death of Julia A., daughter of Eli Allen, who yielded up her life on Saturday, August 2nd, with something like remittent and typhoid fever. She was 10 years, 11 months and 4 days. She died at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. George Hildebrand. Her own parents could not have taken better care of her than Mr. and Mrs. Hildebrand. She had the best care and a good doctor but God called her home unto his kingdom and all that loving hands could do could not save her. Elder Wm. A. Thompson of Tonica preached a very appropriate funeral sermon at Sunday at 10:00. A few selected pieces were sung. Afterwards a last look was taken and then they sang "Meet me there". There were between 25 and 30 buggies following her remains to Caledonia cemetery. Thus one more little bud has been transplanted into God's garden above and we would say to Mr. Allen and also to Mr. and Mrs. Hildebrand to weep not for Julia for she is better off. Gone to her mother and three little sisters in heaven. ..........
