Dr. G.E. Luster
Dr. G. E. Luster Dies Suddenly In His Office
His Body Was Found by His Son Few Minutes After the Death
Made Usual Morning Calls
Dr. George Edward Luster, for 22 years a physician and surgeon of Galesburg, died suddenly in his office about 10:30 o’clock this morning. Either apoplexy or heart disease is believed to have been the cause of his death.
The lifeless body of the doctor was found by Vernon Luster, his son, lying on the floor in one of the rear rooms of the offices occupied by Mr. Luster in the Lescher Building. Believing that his father had only fainted, Mr. Luster ran to the Lescher Drug company below. Dr. John Bohan, who occupies offices just east of the Lescher Building, was at the side of the physician in a moment but the spark of life had gone before his arrival.
Dr. Luster had not complained of feeling ill. He has been in his usual good health as far as is known. This morning he made his usual morning calls, returning to his office about 9 o’clock. His son, Vernon Luster, talked with him and there was nothing in his appearance or conversation that indicated he was ill.
Vernon left the office a few minutes later to buy a pair of shoes. Upon his return as he was ascending the stairs he heard the telephone bell in the doctor’s office ringing. He answered the call believing that his father had left the office. Going into one of the rear rooms he found his father lying on the floor unconscious.
Shortly after the arrival of Dr. Bohan, Drs. Cowan and McClanahan also arrived. Artificial respiration was resorted to but to no avail. Life had been extinct before their arrival.
Dr. Luster was born in Berwick, Ill., on July 7, 1856 and was the son of Dr. and Mrs. Thomas Luster. Later his parents removed to Monmouth and his father served as circuit clerk there.

“And he smiles and comforts us still.”

Rev. R.C. Matthews
Reverend R. C. Matthews, Doctor of Divinity
Death of Dr. Matthews -- Rev. R. C. Matthews, D. D., of Monmouth, died suddenly of neuralgia of the heart on Tuesday evening of last week, at his residence in that city. Dr. Matthews will be remembered as the old gentleman who took part in the fiftieth anniversary of the organization of the Presbyterian church in Rushville, one year ago last January. In alluding to his death the Review says:
Tuesday, he was on our streets, and was feeling better than usual and more cheerful as to his future health. He has so much improved in his general health and strength, that on Sabbath last he preached twice - morning and evening. Tuesday afternoon he out in the lot at his residence with his son, John and one or two others, who were shooting at a mark and shot with them. About four o'clock he complained of pain and a smothering sensation about the heart. Medical aid was immediately called, but he only lived about an hour after being taken sick. No death in this community, among our prominent men, has ever caused such universal sorrow as the demise of Dr. Matthews. He was beloved and revered by all classes, and no pastor ever had a stronger hold upon the affections of his flock than he had. He was in every particular the true, straight-forward, consistent christian gentleman, and the most richly honored and adorned his profession and the cause of his Master.
His place in the church will not easily be filled for there are but few like him as a citizen, a neighbor, and a christian, and his loss to his congregation is almost irreparable. Dr. Matthews was born in Sheperdstown, Virginia, April 2d, 1822. He came to Monmouth in December, 1851, and took charge of the First Presbyterian church, and continued as its pastor till the day of his death, nothing occurring during all these long years to mar the harmony or shake in the least the confidence that existed between him and his congregation, which continually grew and strengthened under his wise administration. We believe this was the first congregation he was ever chosen to preside over and minister to, and he faithfully continued to the end. It was his great desire to see the new and handsome church building erected this summer completed and dedicated, then he expected to quickly lay his armor by to enjoy the rich rewards of a well-spent life. But it has been otherwise ordered. [Contributed by Sara Hemp; Rushville Times, Rushville, Schuyler County, Illinois, November 24, 1881]
