FINAL ROLL CALL FOR ANOTHER OLD SOLDIER --- Abraham Aurand died at the home of his son in Elgin Sunday, Funeral here Tuesday. Abraham Aurand was born in Seneca county Ohio, April 23, 1841, and died in Elgin Illinois, October 27, 1918, age 77 years, 6 months and 4 days. Mr. Aurand had been in poor health the past two years. During the past year he suffered several strokes of apoplexy, which was the cause of his death. When four years old he came with his parents to Hampshire, where he lived until a year ago last January, when he went to live in Elgin with his son Wesley, where on last Sunday morning at 7:30 he passed to his heavenly reward. At age 14 years he was converted to God under the labors of Rev. Snow, and united with the Evangelical church. During the Civil War, he heeded his country's call, joining company K, 52nd IL. Infantry Volunteers, in 1862, fighting to the end of the war. He was a member of Miller Post No. 453 G. A. R. January 25, 1876 he was united in marriage with Sarah Baker, who preceded him in death four years ago last February. This union was blessed with two sons and four daughters; Harrison Aurand of Barrington, Mrs. Mary Kadau of Huntley, Mrs. Emma Warner and Wesley Aurand of Elgin, Mrs. Lydia Samuelson of Hampshire and Mattie who died in 1899. Besides the bereaved children he leaves one sister, Mrs. Anna Rogge, and 21 grandchildren. Mr. Aurand was an honest, upright citizen, loyal to the church of his choice, and a God fearing man. Our heavenly father grant you all a blessed reunion in the city of God. The funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock in the United Evangelical Church by pastor, Rev. E. Countryman. Internment was in the Hampshire Center Cemetery.
