Mrs. Charles C. Cass

OTTAWA, April 2 -- Mrs. Charles C. Cass, 61, former Ottawa resident, died at her home in Rawson Tuesday night. It is probable, the body will be brought to Ottawa for burial, altho funeral arrangements have not been completed. Mrs. Cass has not been in good health for some months. However, the passing of her husband a year ago is believed to have hastened her demise. The family resided here until last fall, when Mrs. Cass accompanied her daughter, Miss Marian Cass, to Rawson, where she is employed as teacher in the public schools. It was there her death occurred. The family resided for many years at 510 B. Main -st. Besides the daughter and a son, Timmie Cass, at the family home, Mrs. Cass is survived by a son, George B. Cass, residing in Indiana, and Leonard B. Cass and Mrs. Harold Bilbrey, two children, both of Toledo. Mr. Cass is employed in Toledo as a deputy United States marshal. A sister, Mrs. Charles B. Sterling, resides in Indianapolis. Mrs. Cass was the daughter of the late Dr. J. D. Timmerman, of Leipsic.

Benjamin F. Clayton
Benjamin Clayton was born in Fairfield County, Ohio, June 11, 1832 and died in his home in Yates Center, Kansas, October 16, 1884; at the age of 52 years, 4 months, and 1 day. Mr. Clayton was enrolled as a private in Co. D. 58th Indiana volunteers, December 5, 1861 and honorably discharged at Savannah, GA, December 31, 1864. He came to Kansas sixteen years ago last September. After spending some time in Franklin and Coffey counties he located in Woodson at Neosho Falls, but on the founding of Yates Center, he was among the first to locate here, where he has since been one of the enterprising men of our city. He was widely known as the proprietor of the "Old Reliable" livery stable, and was always found at his post of duty, ready to oblige his many customers until a few months since when failing health obliged him to take rest. During the past summer, he in company with his family, spent some time at Eureka Springs, Arkansas, afterward making a trip to Iowa, and later to Burlington where Mr. Clayton received medical treatment. But, medical aid was unavailing and he returned to his home to die. As a businessman, Mr. Clayton was enterprising and in social life pleasant and agreeable. His sufferings were protracted and severe, but he was conscious except at brief intervals until the last two hours. Many friends visited him daily during his last weeks and the funeral procession was perhaps the largest ever formed in Yates Center. Religious services and memorial address by Rev. J.C.Hall in the M.E. Church. the burying occurred in the Kalida Cemetery under direction of the I.O.O.F., attended by the Woodson Post of G.A.R.
