boys and one girl dying in infancy.
His wife preceded him in death in

JVek, Bert and pe Forest, all living
in the vicinity of Weeping Water;
two daughters. Mrs. Ella Cook and
Mrs. Jennie Dawson, both of Gandy,
.Nebraska, and one brother, 'James
r'hilpot, of Gandy. Thirty-one grand
children and forty-four great grand
cLildren, together with a host of
Mr. Philpot with bis wife and two
oldest sons, William and Wallace,
traveled from Illinois to Cass county,
Nebraska, in a covered wagon, in

miles northeast of Weeping Water.
During the passing of the years, he
acquired several farms in this coun

ty, where he spent much of his time
tor a number of years.

During his lifetime he saw the
country grow from virgin prairie to
a land filled with transportation fa
cilities by land, air and water
which exceedf-d the highest dreams
of the pionesrs. Telephones, tele
grams and cablegrams circle the
globe, and from the prairies have
risen homes filled with luxurious
mechanical devices, and connected
by telephone, rural mail delivery,
radio and good highways. He liked
to talk about them. Since the death
of his wife and his daughter he
hP9 spent much time away from
Weeping Water with his daughters
at Gandy, but he was always de
lighted to got back 'home,, to visit
with his friends. On account of the
infirmities of age, during the past
year he has been confined to the
hospital most of the time and death
