A STROKE OF APOPLEXY CAUSES DEATH OF JOSEPH COURTNEY THIS MORNING
Joseph Courtney, aged 69 years, residing in and near Charleston for many years, following the time honored occupation of farmer, died at the family residence, two and one have miles west of the city, at 10:30 this morning. The funeral services will be held from the family residence Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Burial will follow in Mound Cemetery.
The news of the death of Mr. Courtney was a startling shock to his friends in this city as it was only yesterday afternoon that he was in the city on business and visited many of the stores while here. He also visited the office of Robert Wilton and while there met many of his friends, who could not at first believe the reports of his death.
This morning at 6:30 Mr. Courtney was found lying prostrated, face downwards on the floor by his brother John Courtney and who notified the members of the family. The man who sustained a stroke of apoplexy, was unconscious and despite medical skill and the ministrations of his family, he died four hours later.
Joe Courtney was known to the majority of the citizens of this county, as he had made this vicinity his home for over half a century. He was industrious, and was a many of good habits and ways. He is survived by the following children: Mrs. Robert Wilton of Charleston, Mrs Jake Winkler of Rardin, Mrs. Dan Winkleblack of Mattoon, Mrs. Fred Costigan of Seattle, Wash., and George Courtney of Seattle Wash., and Harry and Will Courtney of Mattoon, besides his wife, several brothers and a host of friends.
