Died. Slocum. Norman, aged 72
years, 3 months, 1 day, at his
home near Murray, Neb., on Wed
nesday, Feb. 3, 1909, of heart
failure. ' Funeral on Friday, Feb.
5. 1909. Interment at Eight Mile
Grove cemetery.
Old settlers In this section were
greatly shocked to hear this morning
of the passing of Norman Slocum, ono
of the best known and highest re
spected citizens of this section. From
accounts received here his death
was a very sudden one. He was in
Murray yesterday and had quite a
visit with his brother-in-law D. L.
Amick, the stockman, returning to
his home apparently In the best of
health. Mr. Slocum lived some two
miles from Murray. This morning
Mr. Amick was shocked to hear of
his sudden and fatal illness. After
returning home last evening Mr.
Slocum seemed to be In very good
health and retired seemingly all
right. He rose this morning at four
o'clock and was about the house, re
turning to bed In a short time still
apparently in good health.
About seven-thirty his family con
cluded to call him for breakfast, he
not having gotten up at his usual
time. When they reached his room
they were shocked to find him in
deep pain and apparently on the
verge of expiring. Dr. J. F. Drendel
was hurriedly summoned from Mur
ray and in company with Mr.
Amick, made all possible speed to the
bedside of the stricken man. Despite
their efforts to reach him they were
unsuccessful as he died before they
could get to him with relief.
Norman Slocum was born In Ohio
on November 2, 1836 and Bpent his
boyhood days In the Buckeye state
emigrating to Nebraska when a
young man. He first settled in this
county many years ago and here he
met and won Miss Minerva Amick, a
daughter of the late Geo. L. Amick
and sister of David L. Amick of Mur
ray. To this union two children were
born who still survive their father.
These are Edward, a son, and Mrs.
Ada Ferrlss, daughter, both of whom
live near Murray. After his mar
riage Mr. Slocum sold his Cass Coun
ty farm and moved to Otoe County
where he lived for a number of years,
vho came to know him and to ad
mire and respect him the more as the
years went by. To all these the news
of his untimely taking away cannot
fall to come as a great blow and their
sympathy goes out to the suffering
widow and bereaved children left
In his lifetime deceased had been
an exemplary and industrious citi
zen and had accumulated a great deal
of this world's goods, having well
provided for those who are left be
hind. He was not so far as known a
member of any order save that great
est of all the brotherhood of man
and in this he ranked high, kind,
loving, generous and noble. In his
passing there goes a good man.
The funeral of this good citizen
will take place upon Friday next,
Feb. 5, the hour not being set at this
writing, and the Interment will be at
Eiyht Mile Grove. ,
