Poseyville News dated April 12, 1901:
Another of Robb township's oldest and most respected citizens answered the final summons Thursday night. Stanton Fitzgerrell, whose serious illness was mentioned in our last issue, passed to the great beyond at about 9 o'clock Thursday evening, surrounded by those to who his life was nearest and dearest. Mr. Fitzgerrell had been in very poor health all winter and gradually grew weaker until the end. His trouble seemed due to old age - a general breaking down of a system that had withstood the trial of life for over eighty years. Mr. Fitzgerrell was born in Gibson county March 17, 1819, and came with his parents to this township when a mere boy and had since been a resident of this township. At the time of his death he was 82 years and 17 days of age. In 1845 he was united in marriage to Mrs. Nancy Graham. To this union was born six children, three of whom preceeded him to the haven of eternal rest. Those alive are Louis D., Mrs. Tom Murphy and Mrs. Frank Montgomery, all residing in this community. Since the death of his wife some years ago Mr. Fitzgerrell had made his home with his son Louis. He also leaves two sisters and one brother - Mrs. Martha J. Stone, of Owensville, Mrs. Hiram Barker, of Mt. Vernon, and Daniel Fitzgerrell, of this township. The funeral was held at the family residence Saturday and the large attendance was a silent witness of the high esteem in which he was held by all. Eid. A.A. Shoultz, of Owensville preached a touching discourse, as well he might on the noble life he held in review. The deceased had for many years been a member of the Regular Baptist church and was always one of its most consistent and earnest memebers. His was indeed a life full of good deeds and many will mourn him as a stanch and true friend. The bereaved relatives and friends have the sincerest sympathy of all in their irrepaiable loss.
