DEATH OF HENRY BOGART
Funeral Will be Held Tomorrow Afternoon at Home of Father in Leon – Start Saturday Morning at 7.
The death of Henry Bogart yesterday afternoon came with extremely saddening effects to his family. It was known that he was seriously ill, yet it was hardly thought that he was in such a critical state, and it was a hard blow for the wife and daughters to reconcile the fact.
There will be a short service at the home in west Rock Falls at 7 o'clock tomorrow morning. The body will then be taken overland to the home of his father, Hiram Bogart, near Leon, where the funeral services will be held at 1 o'clock in the afternoon. The services will be conducted there by the pastor of the Leon church. The interment will be in the Leon cemetery, by the side of Mr. Bogart's mother, who died a few years ago.
Henry Peter Winchell Bogart was born in Ulster county, New York, fifty-eight years ago. He came west with his parents when a little boy and settled in the south part of the county. When a young man he married Miss Amanda Brown.
About twenty years ago the family moved to Rock Falls, he buying a house and lot on Ninth avenue where they have since resided. He has not been in the very best of health for several years although it was not thought his trouble was anything serious enough to take him from earth.
He leaves to mourn his death, his wife and four daughters, they being Mrs. Paul McAllister, Mrs. Robert Calligan, and Mrs. Glenn Beales of this city, and Mrs. John Needham of Prophetstown. His aged father is also left to mourn his passing.
The deceased also leaves three sisters, Mrs. Willis Robinson of Chicago, Mrs. Frank Irvin of Leon, and Miss Ida E. who lives at home.
Mr. Bogart was a good man and one who was universally esteemed by all who knew him. He was a loving husband and a kind father and will be sorely missed by his wife and daughter.
