R. T. BOBO DEAD
Major E. P. Miller Writes to Tennessee Soldier's Home and
LEARNS THE FACTS
Bobo Died There October Thirtieth of Pulmonary Tuberculosis
The supposition that Rollin T. Bobo, former Decatur boy, was dead, inferred from a letter returned to his mother and so marked, is true, according to substantiation received in a letter today by Major Ed P. Miller. Major Miller wrote to the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, Tennessee, and received the following letter:
"Natl. Home, Tenn., Nov. 20, '18.
"Mr Ed P. Miller, 603 Adams Street, Decatur, Ind.:
"Dear Sir: - Refering to your letter of the 18th inst., I am directed by the governor to state that Mr. Rollin T. Bobo was transferred to this home from the Central Branch October 11, 1918, and died at 7:45 a.m. October 30, 1918. Cause of death: Pulmonary tuberculosis.
"He was buried in the home cemetery with full military honors and a marble headstone will mark his resting place,
"L. M. CARKER,
The deceased was a son of the late Judge James R. Bobo and of Mrs. Almira Bobo, who lived here until a few months ago when she went to Oklahoma to spend the winter with a daughter. When Mrs. Bobo had returned to her a letter sent to her son, and marked "dead", she appealed here for direction in learning the facts regarding the matter, with the result that Major Miller took it upon himself to write to the home. Both he and Bobo served in the Spanish American war.
