Fur.cra! cf Lute Korman Slocum From
Home Rear Murray
Last Friday afternoon at his home
near the town of Murray occurred
the funeral of one Cass County's best
citizens, when the moral remains of
Norman Slocum were consigned to
their last resting place. The funeral
took place about one o'clock in the
afternoon from his residence, the
sermon uOiiig prcAtueu uy Rev. F.
W. Bring, the eloquent divlno of
Liberty and Otterhem chapel United
Brethren church. From the upright
and sterling life of this Nebraska
veteran the minister drew many no
ble and striking examples of the
value Buch men have on the com
munity. Rev. Brink's address was
a fitting tribute to a noble life well
The music of the funeral was fur
nished by the choir from Murray con
sisting of Mesdames B. F. Brendel,
Chas. Terrel and Viola Wiley and
Messrs. B. A. Root and D. L. Amlck
who sang a number of the deceased's
Interme'nt was held at Eight Mile
Grove cemetery, the cortege consist
ing of a great many of the friends of
the deceased. The pall bearers were
Messrs. J. W. Edmonds, W. B. Vir
gin, A. L. Baker, J. W. Thomason,
Lloyd Gapen and D C. Rhoden, all
old friends of the departed.
Norman Slocum was a native of
Ohio, being born In the Buckeye state
on December 10. 1837 and at the-
time of his death was 71 years, 1
month and 23 days of age. At the
age of almost 32 years he immi
grated to Nebraska settling In this
county and on Nov. 28, 1872, he was
united in marriage to Miss Minerva
Amick who survives him. Two
children also live after him both be
ing residents of Cass County, being
Edward a son, and Mrs. Ada Ferriss
a daughter. In addition he left sur
viving a sister Mrs. Longwell of Burt
County, Nebraska. On his wife's
side two brother-in-laws also sur
vive the deceased being D. L. Am
lck of Murray and J. W. Amlck of
Weeping Water. One nephew of
Mrs. Amlck's was also in attendance
at the" funeral being Joe Thomas.
For many years Mr, Slocum had
been known In this section of the
county as an industrious, . upright
I and popular citizen. His loss falls
quite heavily upon the community
where he lived as it removed one of
the best of nun from their midst.
He was a man of unblemished char
acter and without one who could sav
aught to his discredit. The widow
and children have the entire sym
pathy of all In their bereavement.
