Obituary in Neodesha Register
1887 to 1907
Orlie Whitaker died at Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado on Wednesday June 19, 1907, of lung trouble, aged 29 years. He went to Colorado two weeks prior to his death and was accompanied by his cousin, Archie Davis. The deceased was born and reared in Newark Township, Wilson County, Kansas. His parents, Mr. Samuel Hathaway
Whitaker Sr. and Mary Ellen (nee Davis)Whitaker, died some years ago. For ten or 12 years Orlie made his home with his Uncle Robert Sherriff "Wake" Whitaker. Since returning home from the Philippines, where Mr. Whitaker served in Uncle Sam's Army, his health had steadily failed
and his trip to Colorado recently was in the hope that he would be benefitted. He was a well-liked young man and his early demise is indeed sad. Burial was made at Colorado Springs, but later the body will probably be brought home and interred in the Star Cemetery, Wilson County, KS.
