Died, on Saturday, Jan. 28, 1888, at 3:10 a.m., of consumption, Frank, third son of W. F. and M. L. Elkin, aged 19 years, 5 months. Funeral from the St. Pauls Episcopal church on Monday under the auspices of the Governors Guard. Frank Elkin was a well known and exemplary young man and an honored member of the Governors Guard, I.N.G. He was employed in the store of R. F. Ruth up to the time he was taken sick in September last. The following month he went south in search of health but returned three weeks ago, in a still worse condition than when he went, and continued to decline until death relieved him of his sufferings at the time above stated. The family has the kindly sympathy of the entire community. IL State Register, Springfield, IL 1-29-1888
