Saint Joseph County, Indiana newspaper

Isaac M. Zent, a former Auburn citizen, and known all over our county, died Saturday at Vandalia, Illinois, at the home of his mother, where he went to spend Christmas.  While there he took sick with pneumonia, recovering so as to be about, later suffering a relapse and died.  He left Auburn about 8 years ago, having been prominently connected with many Auburn industries. In 1882 he was made Wabash station agent at Auburn and served 28 years there, and in 1910 was appointed postmaster.  Mr. Zent was very active politically, serving a number of years as treasurer of the Republican committee.

The body was returned for burial.
