SUDDEN ARRIVAL OF THE ANGEL OF DEATH
GEORGE ODGEN

George Ogden was found lying dead by the side of the bed in his room at the Burg hotel in the village the morning of the 4th. He had been in failing health for a number of weeks but was able to be about the village on the afternoon previous to his death. Early on the 4th he had taken worse and a physician was called to attend him at the hotel. The doctor administered such relief as he was able and left the sick man apparently resting easier. Some time between the doctor's departure and 6 o'clock the summons came as the body was quite cold and stiff at that hour when the landlady, Mrs. Burg, looked in to see how Mr. Ogden was doing. The physician's certificate assigns asthma as the cause of death.

George Ogden was the son of William and Malinda Ogden and was born in Hancock County, Ill. Aug. 23, 1853, being 65 year, 7 months and 23 days old at the time of his death. He married Eliza Guy of Gladstone and she preceded him in death in August 1908. Most of his life was spent in this

vicinity, he having conducted a restaurant and livery business in Stronghurst, a hotel and livery at Gladstone, and a livery business at Smithshire during various periods. He was a member of the Order of Red Men, holding a membership certificate in the Burlington, Ia. Lodge. He is survived by his brothers, Lafe of Washington, Doug of Lincoln, Nebr., and Luther and Will of Stronghurst besides numerous more distant relatives. Funeral services will be conducted at the Stronghurst M.E.Church with burial in the village cemetery.
