Roy Ralston Obit
Roy Sidney Ralston passed away from his home northwest of New Windsor at 7 pm, Sunday evening, Oct 2, 1932, at the age of 60 years, one month and 29 days.

He was the second son of D.F. and Frances Griffard (Gifford) Ralston. He was born in New Windsor Aug 3, 1872, and with his parents moved to Richland Grove Township at the age of 12 years, and has resided in that community since then.

He was united in marriage to Miss Arella (Mary Arilla) Holliday on Sept 21, 1912. Mrs. Ralston is survived by two children, Clinton Lasley (Leslie) Ralston of Alexis and Mrs. Fern Larson of New Windsor and by two grandchildren: one sister Isola F., of Rock Island and three brothers, L. Ward Ralston of San Gabriel, Calif.; Ralph M. of Griffin and Winn Ralston of Rock Island. One sister died as a child.

Mr. Ralston's father and mother both preceded him in death, but his foster mother, who was his own mother's sister, is still living in Rock Island.

Funeral services were held at the home at 2 o'clock this afternoon, Wednesday, Oct 5, with Rev. R. Morrison Means of the Presbyterian church in New Windsor officiating. Burial was in the Western Cemetery at Swedona.
