T. P. Bone Obituary

Clark County Clipper, September 4, 1902.


Our citizens were shocked Tuesday morning when a telegram was received here for Roy Bone from Harry announcing the death of their father at Wichita.

It seems that deceased had placed his grip in the Ashland train and had crossed over again to the depot and as he again started to the train he fell either accidentally or from heart failure, striking his head just above the eye, on the rail.  He was dead when they picked him up.  Harry had gone to the Carey Hotel, and did not know that his father was in town until notified that he was lying dead at the depot.

Mr. Bone was sixty-six years old and was born in Illinois.  He leaves two sons and one daughter.

Deceased had lived here with his son Harry for quite a while and was quite well known.  He was courteous at all times and to make his acquaintance was to be his warm friend.

The community will deeply sympathize with the bereaved children.

The remains will be sent to Petersburg, Illinois for burial.
