George W. Fry
The death of George W. Fry occurred last Monday night about twelve o'clock. Thus the hand of death has once more stolen from us one of our most worthy citizens, a young man bright with prospects and sterling worth. He was born in Delaware County, Ohio in 1860 and came to Kansas in 1871 and removed to Yates Center with his parents soon after its location. He engaged in the newspaper business about six years and was for several years connected with the News, but for the past year or more has been identified with his brother, James B. Fry in the real estate business. He was an honored member of both the Odd Fellows and the K. of P. Lodges. George, as he was usually called, was a young man whom all could respect and his death will leave an aching void in the hearts of all those who knew him. He lived not for himself alone, but as his many acts of kindness bear witness, was one who delighted in aiding his fellowmen to lead a pleasant and happy life. He was a son-in-law of the late Benjamin F. Clayton, who but recently passed from this earthly sphere and the blows falls doubly severe upon his bereaved wife. How true the words, "in the midst of life we are in death." It seems sad to have to give up all ones bright hopes and prospects this early in life but we can do nothing but bow in humble submission to the will of divine providence. Mr. Fry was an ardent friend to the temperance cause, ever putting forth an effort to suppress the great evil. He was one of the charter members of the Good Templars and aided and helped to advance the movement whenever it was in his power to do so. He leaves a wife and two little children and a large circle of friends and relatives to morn their loss. The wife and little ones have the sincere sympathy of the entire community in their sad affliction. The funeral services were held yesterday at 10 o'clock a.m. in the M.E. church under the auspices of the Odd Fellows, assisted by the Knights of Pythias. Rev. J. C. Hull conducted the funeral services. [Unknown newspaper, c. 1885 - Submitted by Jeanne Bedwell]

It was always refreshing to hear her speak of her Bible, her Savior, His cause and His people. For these she had an affection which was not hindered by any sectarian preachers of the M.E. Church. When told by one of them that he had united with the Methodists, she replied, "You know that it would have been my choice to have you a Baptist, but if you can serve God as well, stay where yon are as long as you live."— Well may her children and her children's children call her blessed.

Jacob Rose
Another Revolutionary Hero Gone-Died - At the residence of his son in Harlem township, Delaware county, on the 20th inst. Jacob Rose, in the 79th year of his age. Mr. Rose entered the army of the revolution when he was quite young, and remained until it was disbanded. He was in several important engagements with the Indians in the State of New York. He was with General Sullivan in his expedition against the Six Nations in 1779, when they were completely subdued. He was at the capture of Cornwallis in 1718, which important event put an end to the British oppression. He also took part in the last war with Great Britain, which terminated so gloriously for American Liberty. Mr. Rose was distinguished through life for his exemplary and retiring habits, as well as his gentlemanly deportment. A great lover of his country and her republican institutions, and a devoted and ardent Christian, always ready to lend his aid to the afflicted. In a word he was a Christian in whom there was no guile; and he died as he lived, respected and esteemed by all who knew him. He has been gathered to his fathers after having lived long enough to see the fruits of his early toil in behalf of the liberties of his country crowned by the smiles of Heaven in its abundant posterity.
