Rush Reynolds Hoon

After an unusually long and painful illness, the above named died at his home in our city, Sunday evening last at eleven o'clock. Mr. Hoon was born in Tipton May 10, 1870. He was married August 10, 1892, to Miss Mary Sheets and two children were born to this union. The boy died in infancy and the girl Leith Marguerite remains with the mother and one sister, Miss Grace, to mourn the departure of the husband and father.

Mr. Hoon was baptized in infancy and five years ago united with the Lutheran church of this place at Easter and his membership therein has ever been an earnest consistent profession. The funeral services were held from the church Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock in charge of J. Kent Rizer, the pastor, who spoke from I Cor. 13:12. A detail from Co. F served as pall bearers and interment was made at the Sand Hill cemetery.
