Chanute Daily Tribune, June 22, 1925 - FUNERAL SERVICES OF MR. OLIPHANT - The funeral of A. L. Oliphant, late road master of the Southern Kansas division of the Santa Fe, was held at the First Presbyterian church yesterday, with the Rev. Fred Shaw in charge... The church was filled to capacity with Santa Fe employees and their families... The pallbearers were all section foremen who had come directly under Mr. Oliphant's supervision. The out-of-town relatives and close friends among the mourners were John Oliphant and son, Howard, of Apache, Okla; Mrs Gardner Fries, Mrs. McKehey and Mrs. Sparks of Cherryvale, and Mr. and Mrs. Marion Bishop of Emporia... Mr. Oliphant was born at Quincy, Ill., July 16, 1865, and met his death June 19, 1925, as the result of a motor car accident which occurred on the outskirts of Chanute (accident June 18 while inspecting track). Orphaned in early childhood, he passed through hardships and privations in his unaided struggle toward his goal of strong efficient manhood... His marriage to Mary Rant (Ramp) in 1895, was one of those peculiarly happy unions... To his six sons and one daughter he was ever a devoted, self-sacrificing parent, at the same time guiding them firmly, by example and authority, along the lines of uprightness and integrity. To them and to all who knew him he has bequeathed the priceless heritage of useful life bravely lived and fearlessly relinquished in the performance of a duty...
