Jacob Roudebush, aged 56, years, who was stricken with paralysis when husking corn last Saturday, died today. After the stroke he never regained consciousness. Mr Roudebush lived about eight miles south of the city, and the spot where he fell Saturday is within a half mile of the place where he was born. He was the father of Harry Roudebush, the young man who met a tragic death in the street car collision on the soldiers Home line at the time of the state D A R encampment. Mr Roudebush was in excellent health when he left the house to go to the cornfield. His absence was noticed by his wife, who sent her little daughter, Anna, aged 13, years , out to the field to find him . She saw the pet dog of the family acting strangely near a corn-shock, and was horrified to find her fathers body lying across it. Neighbors attracted to the scene lifted the body, placed it in a buggy and removed it to the house. Life was not extinct, although the man was unconscious. He is survived by a widow and six children, namely, Mrs Myrtle Wingert, who resides in the Wea neighborhood. Thomas Roudebush, employed by the Monon, and residing here; Henry, Eva, Anna and Susan, who live on the old home place. Mr Roudebush was a life-long republican and at the time of his demise was serving his second term as supervisor of Wea township. His life was spent near his birthplace and he was one of the best known men in the township. The funeral will be held at 10 o'clock Thursday morning from the United Brethren church at Conoroe, Rev Tinkly officiating. Interment will be in the Concord cemetery.
