WAR VETERAN ANSWERS CALL
Lewis C. Ambrose Passes Away in this City
Crawfordsville - Just a little over a week from the day when his captain, Major Samuel McIrvin of Veedersburg, was mustered out of life's service by death, Lewis C. Ambrose a veteran of the civil war, himself answered the final roll call, his death occurring at 1:10 this morning at his home, 908 West Pike Street, this city.
The funeral services are to be conducted at Trinity Methodist Church Monday morning at 10 o'clock, the Rev. J. Milton Williams being the officiating minister. McPherson Post, Grand Army of the Republic, will have charge of the services. Interment at Oak Hill Cemetery. The pallbearers are to be M. V. Smith, Capt. H. H. Talbott, Albert Hornabaker, Ambrose Remley, Thomas Shepherd and James Boots.
Mr. Ambrose had lived in Crawfordsville for 35 years and was well known throughout the city. He was born in Higland county, Ohio September 27, 1840. When he was twelve years of age he moved with his father to Logan county, Illinois, where he lived until the civil war broke out. At the opening of the war he joined Harris's light cavalry and served with it until he was sent home with a case of typhoid fever. As soon as he recovered from the ravages of the fever he again joined the army; this time enlisting as a member of the Thirty-sixth Illinois infantry.
Following the close of the war, February 14, 1867 he was married near Wingate to Miss Anna McClure, daughter of Alex McClure now deceased but formerly well known all over the county. They then lived in Illinois for a year and then for three years near Wingate in this county.
Thirty-five years ago they moved to Englewood on the east side of this city, and have resided here ever since, moving about a year ago when Mr. Ambrose's health became bad to the home on West Pike Street. The wife and one brother, Henry Ambrose, at Garnet, Kan., survive the deceased. Two children died in infancy.
