R. Lundy, who for 17 consecutive years, was Carthage city clerk, died at 9:50 o'clock Saturday night at his home, 1213 Grand Avenue. Death was due to heart trouble. He had been seriously sick a week but had not been in good health for two years. He was 68 years old. Mr. Lundy had resided in Carthage about 35 years and for several years before he came to the city he resided in the country in this county. He was born in Pennsylvania. For one year and four months he served in the Eighty-third Pennsylvania Infantry during the Civil War. He enlisted when he was 16 years old. Soon after the war he came to Jasper county. He was elected to the city clerk's office on the Republican ticket. Before he became city clerk he was street commissioner for one year. After leaving the clerk's office he was a salesman for the Platt-Porter grocery or the predecessors of that company, until poor health caused him to quit work. He was the salesman for the concern in Carthage and the stores immediately adjacent to the city. When he was a boy, Mr. Lundy became a member of the Methodist Episcopal church and was a member of the First Methodist Episcopal church here when he died. He was a charter member of the A.H.T.A.
