A. J. McABOY, in his forty-ninth year, died in the hospital at Bloomington last Tuesday. He was in the hospital taking a course of treatment for piles when he was stricken down with pneumonia, and death speedily followed. His remains were brought to his home in Clinton on Wednesday and yesterday morning he was buried in Woodlawn. The Rev. L. B. PICKERILL preached the funeral sermon, and the Masonic fraternity performed their ceremonies at the grave. Mr. McABOY was born in this county. For the past twenty years or more he has worked for the Illinois Central road. He was married and was the father of five children. At the March term of the circuit court he and his wife were divorced. During the war he served in the Fourth Illinois Artillery, and he was a brave soldier. Jay enlisted early in the war, when he was not more than sixteen years old. The Grand Army Post turned out and followed their old comrade to his grave. Jay was not a member of the Grand Army.
