|THE DEATH OF ROBERT ROUDEBUSH|
Robert Roudebush, oldest son of Mrs. Elizabeth Roudebush, departed this life April 20, 1901, at his home near South Raub, Indiana, death being instantly caused by the accidental discharge of a gun while working in a field. It was a very sad death and a great shock to his family, the home being plunged into deepest gloom and his friends and family being enshrouded in greatest grief. The deceased was born May 23, 1868, and had spent all his life on the farm on which he met his death. He spent an industrious life engaged in his favorite agricultural labors. He was a kind son and brother, an industrious man, a man of solidity of character, not wavering in his convictions of what was right and over his last great change we would say he has gone to dwell on high with the Savior and loved ones gone before. He will be much missed in the community in which he lived but our loss is his eternal gain. He leaves a mother, three brothers and one sister, Mrs. Frank Hollcraft, of Hammond, Ind., together with a large circle of acquaintances and friends to mourn his untimely death. The family have the sympathy of all in this sad bereavement. Funeral services were held in the St. Joe Christian Church, near Conroe, by Rev. Frank Mikels, of Frankfort, at 2 o’clock, Sunday afternoon, the remains being laid to rest in the Conroe Cemetery.
