|Death: ||Aug. 26, 1912|
Aged 44y 4m 3d; suicide
Carl C. Vance, 860 Calhoun avenue, a contractor and painter, aged 44 years, hung himself in his work shop at the rear of 1054 Patton avenue, at 5 p.m. yesterday. Until the time of his death he had shown no symptoms of being tired of life. He was in good circumstances financially. He had fallen from a wagon he was driving on July 11, 1911, when the vehicle collided with an automobile. The effect of the fall last year is confidently assigned as the reason for his act by his parents, who alone survive him.
The man is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. I. N. Vance, with whom he was living at the time of his death. He was unmarried. He was born in 1868 in Palmyra, Ill. At the age of 22 he came to this city, where he had since resided.
Deceased was a member of the Modern Woodmen, the Odd Fellows and the First Christian church. One of the lodges, it is thought, will have charge of the services at the grave. IL State Journal&Register, Springfield, IL 8-27-1912
