Cleveland T. Goens Dead

Cleveland T. Goens, aged twenty-nine years, died at noon today at his home on the A. V. Lawell farm, southwest of the city, following an illness with peritontis.

He was born in Jackson County, September 25, 1888, and was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis S. Goens.

He is survived by his widow, his father and six children.

The funeral will be conducted from the residence at 1 o'clock Sunday afternoon.

The body will be taken to the Smallwood Cemetery, four miles west of Brownstown, for burial.

(The name in the obituary contridicts what I had been told by his daughter, Edith Stella Goens Hill.)
