William Henry Penland
The death of William Henry Penland in Lakeview, last Saturday, was a particularly sad one, and public sympathy goes out to the bereaved wife, fatherless children and disconsolate father of the deceased.
Henry Penland was born in Shasta county, Cal., and at the time of his death, September 1, 1900, his age was 33 years, 11 months and 22 days. George H. Penland, an old citizen of Lake county, was father of the deceased, and upon being advised of the death of his son, arranged to come here to attend the last sad rites. When a short distance from his home in Cedarville, he, too, being in
ill health, suddenly collapsed, and had to be returned to his home for medical treatment.
At the time of the death the wife and little girl were lying dangerously ill in another room, and are still under the close attention of the physician, as is
also a little son who has since been taken down with fever.
Since his boyhood the deceased was a sufferer from a disease similar to epilepsy and very frequently without warning he would fall suddenly to the ground in a fit, from which he would emerge in a weak and emaciated condition.
Deceased had only been ill a few days when death relieved him of his sufferings. He complained of rheumatic pains, and it was not known until too late that the deadly fever was consuming him. He leaves a wife and three children, a father, brother and numerous other relatives to mourn his death. The funeral took place from the M.E. Church on the 4th inst. Rev. Warfield officiated. The floral offerings were profuse.
