Flowers left for Stephen Lock
THE DEATH OF STEPHEN LOCK
Stephen Lock, the son of Richard and Mary Ann Lock, was born near Columbus, Ohio, March 17, 1844, and died July 16, 1901, at his home in Wyandotte, aged 57y3m29d. In his early childhood he removed with his parents to Tippecanoe county, where he had since resided. Early in the civil war he enlisted in the service of his country in the One Hundred and Sixteenth Indiana Infantry, and was a gallant soldier. After the close of his service in the army, on August 3, 1865, he was married to Miss Margaret Walker, who, with two sons, four daughters, and seventeen grand-children, with two sisters and a brother survive to mourn his loss. In early manhood Mr Lock was converted and united with the Methodist church, and lived a Christian life. He often gave expression to his faith, and during the weeks preceding his death he frequently spoke of his readiness to go at the final summons, which he felt would soon come. His last illness was brief, and it was soon evident that he was fighting his last earthly battle. In this last struggle he made a brave fight for life but had finally to yield to the grim conqueror. Thus passed away a loving father, a peaceable loyal patriotic citizen, a faithful friend and a true Christian soul to his eternal reward. His death was caused by a complication of diseases. The deceased was a brother of George Lock of Stockwell. The funeral will be conducted from the Salem Church today. Mr Lock had lived at Wyandotte for a number of years, and was regarded as an honorable gentleman and a worthy citizen.(Lafayette newspaper - Saturday July 20, 1901.)
