Crago, Lewis J. (1869 - 26 Sept. 1940)

L. J. Crago, 71, Merrillan, who with his wife and son, Thomas, went to Denver, Col., about six weeks ago to spent the winter with their daughter, Mrs. Williams, and family, passed away quite suddenly Thursday, September 26. The body was brought to the home where funeral services were held Monday, the rites being largely attended. Interment took place at Merrillan.

He also owned and managed the Crago Theatrical Company, being quite successful in the show business. In all of these lines he was closely associated with the public and became widely known and was well liked.

He is survived by his wife (the former Minnie Young of Chili), the daughter and one sons mentioned above, and one sister, Mrs. Thomas Smale, Merrillan.
