DEATH OF ANDREW ZANE
CARBUNCLE FATAL TO PROMINENT PIONEER


Implement Dealer Came to Jasper County in 1863 -
Was 73 Years Old


Andrew Zane died at 10:30 o'clock yesterday morning at his home at 836 Clinton Street, aged 73 years, nine months and ten days. The immediate cause of his death was a carbuncle, which poisoned his system, but his health has been failing for two or three years past. He was one of the best known and most highly respected citizens of the city and county where he had lived for so long.
Mr. Zane was born at Pleasant Plains, Sangamon county, Illinois, August 20, 1846. There he resided until he came to Carthage October 8, 1869. His trip here was overland in a wagon with his brother, J. S. Zane, who afterwards became sheriff of this county. At that time Sedalia was the nearest railroad point to Carthage. Soon after arriving here, Mr. Zane helped haul sand from the Barton County sand banks for use in erecting the Regan Building on the west side of the square, which was recently altered and named the Center Building.
Mr. Zane returned to Pleasant Plains, Illinois in 1873 on a visit there and was there married on February 27, 1873 to Miss Mary Jane Hamilton, whom he had known from childhood, and who now survives him. Returning here with his bride, he settled on a farm 13 miles northeast of Carthage, where he remained until 1872, when he moved to Carthage, first as part of the firm of Dixon & Zane then as Zane & Wetherell, with the headquarters on Grant Street north of the square.
The deceased is survived by a wife and one son, Arthur Zane, of this city. One daughter died in infancy and a son at three years of age.

The funeral was held at the residence, conducted by the Rev. B. F. Crissman, pastor of the First Methodist Church.
Knights of Pythias had graveside rites.
