A. T. DORA DEAD AT 72
END COMES AT HOME WEST OF TOWN THIS AFTERNOON
Real Estate Man and Former Mine Operator
Suffered From Cancer of the Stomach
Alvin T. Dora, real estate man and former mine operator, died at his home, the former Caro Stewart suburban place, one mile west of the city, at 1:10 o'clock this afternoon. He had been ill the last two months, suffering from cancer of the stomach.
Mr. Dora, who was 72 years old, was well known and well liked by those who knew him. A man of quiet disposition, yet he was pleasant and kindly and made warm friends.
Since 1917 Mr. Dora had been associated with Ed Lanyon in the real estate here, handling mostly farm properties. It was in 1917 that Mr. Dora returned to Carthage with his family from Charlton, Iowa where they had gone in 1909, called there by the death of his father. From 1900 to 1909 the family resided near Morgan Heights, southwest Carthage. Before coming here, Mr. Dora for eight years was engaged in mining at Galena, Kansas.
Mr. Dora was born in Cedar county, IA., June 19, 1853. He was reared in Luens county, that state, and was married February 18, 1874 at Charlton, IA., to Miss Syrena McCoy. They celebrated their golden wedding anniversary here one year ago last February 18.
After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Dorn resided in Charlton six years, then moving to Pierre, South Dakota where Mr. Dora engaged in the flouring mill business. In 1888 they moved to Hutchinson, KS., and after four years there moved to Galena, from where they came to Carthage.
Besides his wife, Mr. Dora is survived by one son, James Dora, and a daughter, Mrs. Roy Waynick, both of Tulsa, OK., and who were at their father's bedside when death came.
He also had three sisters and three grandchildren. The sisters are Mrs. Lou McCollaugh of Lakin, KS., who also is here; Mrs. Mary McCollaugh of Sheridan, IA., and Mrs. Lillie Vincent of Hutchinson, KS. The grandchildren are Lois, James Richard and Arthur Burt Waynick, the latter two being twins.
Mr. Dora was a member of the Christian church. The body was removed to the Knell Mortuary pending funeral arrangements, which had not been made this afternoon.
