Oct 2, 1883, Savanna Weekly Times, Savanna, Carroll Co, Illinois:
DIED. In this city on Tuesday last, October 2, 1883, Mr. Frank Hoy, aged 38 years. Mr. Hoy was a brother of Mrs. Frank Chamberlin, a family who located in this city from Nebraska, but a few weeks ago. Mr. Hoy had been out of health for several years and came here two or three weeks ago to visit his sister whom he had not seen for some nine years. Soon after his arrival he was obliged to take his bed, and soon after became delirious, and finally violently insane, in which condition he died. Mr. and Mrs. Chamberlain have the sincere sympathy of their neighbors in this hour of their affliction.
