Obituary of James "Jim" Alexander Roudebush
Rushville Times, January 1925
James Roudebush
  James Roudebush, son of Christopher {Christian} and Margaret {Martin}, was born in Armstrong county, Penn., February 6, 1845, and departed this life in Rushville, Ill., January 6, 1925, at the age of 79 years and 11 months.
  He came to Illinois with his parents at the age of ten years, locating on a farm nine miles east of Rushville, spending the remainder of his life in Schuyler county.
  He was united in marriage to Miss Candace Robison October 15, 1871{1870}.  To this union were born four children. Rillia, wife of N. J. Sayers, preceded him in death March 15th, 1911.  Those surviving are Rollo H. of Rushville, Mrs. Nettie Davison of Plymouth and Delino of Princeton, who with the aged wife, three grandsons, Wm. C. of Rushville, Harold and Howard of Princeton and one great-granddaughter, Hildreth, of Rushville, also a host of other relatives and friends are left to mourn the loss of a faithful husband and kind and indulgent father, who was highly respected by all his friends and neighbors.
  He was converted and united with the Presbyterian church of Rushville, April 23, 1916, and remained a consistent member of the same up to his death.
  Uncle Jim, as many came to know him, was a farmer up until the past twelve years, when he gave up active work and removed to Rushville, where he was living at the time of his death.
  He had always been a strong and active man until about five years ago, when he met with a fall which kept him in bed for a number of months, when he again regained his usual health until a little over three years ago when he was stricken with the illness which at last proved fatal.
  Through all these years of suffering he was patient and ever looking at the bright side which made his care much easier and he was ever appreciative of all that was done in his behalf.
  His eldest son, R. H. removed to the homestead and cared for his father the last three years of his illness.  While all that gentle hands and best medical aid was rendered, when the Father of all Good said, "it is enough, come up higher."  He cheerfully answered the call that comes to us all sooner or later and which surely must be answered.
  Thus ends the life of one of Schuyler's oldest and highest esteemed citizens, leaving behind him an influence for good upon all who came in contact socially, neighborly, or in a business way, ever lending a helping hand to all when ever it was needed.  Thus carrying out by practice the exemplary life as lived by his Savior as best he could.
  He was the last of a family of thirteen children, three having preceded him in the past year.
  Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Ira L. Livingston at the Presbyterian church, Friday, January 9th.  Interment was in the Rushville cemetery.
  Card of thanks: We desire to thank the friends and neighbors who so kindly assisted us during the illness and death of our beloved husband and father, also for the floral offerings.
  Mrs. James Roudebush and family.
