Sudden Death of Sir Knight James C. Campbell
Sir Knight James C. Campbell died very suddenly this morning at 4 o'clock, at his home at No. 538 West Macon street, of heart disease. Mr. Campbell was born February 9, 1834, in Marion county, Illinois, and moved to Decatur in 1873. Since that time he served a term as assessor and has always been held in the highest esteem by his fellow citizens. He was a Knight Templar and an Odd Fellow. For years he has been a traveling salesman and enjoyed the best of health until several years ago when he suffered from a complication of heart disease and the grip. Since then he has been gradually failing in strength until a short time ago when he became confined to his home. He rallied last evening, but soon sank into a stupor, from which he did not awaken and at 4 o'clock this morning he passed into the unseen beyond. He leaves a widow and four children, Chas. M. Campbell of Harristown, Mrs. Frank Smith of Minneapolis, Miss Ida Campbell of Minneapolis and Seymour Campbell of this city, bookkeeper at the Hatfield Milling company's office. Telegrams have been sent to the relatives of the deceased and until return word has been received, the time for the funeral cannot be fixed.
