OGLESBY, Annie White
FUNERAL OF MRS. OGLESBY
On Saturday afternoon the remains of Mrs. Annie Oglesby, wife of Governor Richard J. Oglesby, were interred in Greenwood Cemetery. The funeral services proper were held at the Executive Mansion, in Springfield, Rev. L.B. Carpenter, in Springfield, officiating. A special train was provided for the occasion, which arrived here soon after one o'clock, bringing the body of the deceased, the relatives and a large number of friends. Carriages were in waiting at the depot, and the funeral cortege, which was one of the largest ever seen in Decatur, proceeded to the cemetery without delay. For more than an hour prior to the arrival of the train citizens had been flocking to the cemetery, and before the procession reached the grave the grounds were crowded with people. The simple but beautiful service of the Methodist church was read at the grave, an appropriate hymn was sung by the choir composed of ladies and gentlemen residing in this city, a short prayer was offered by Rev. Mr. Carpenter, and the funeral was over.
Mrs. Oglesby was the daughter of J.G. White, Esq., of this city, was married to her now bereaved husband in 1859. She was the mother of four children, two of whom, a son and a daughter, survive her. She leaves a large circle of friends, both in Springfield and in this city, who sincerely deplore her early death, and who sympathize deeply with her bereaved family.
