THE ALTON EMPIRE
Alton, Kansas
Thurs., May 20, 1897
Perry McClellan died at the residence of his son, W.S. McClellan, of this place, May 15, 1897, aged 60 years, eight months and 29 days.
Perry McClellan was born in Perry county, Ohio, August 16, 1836, where he spent his boyhood days. In 1862, he married Miss Harriet Skinner, who survives him. To this union four children were born, three of whom, Mrs. A.M. Rinehart of Smith Center, Mrs. W.T. Brown, and Mr. W.S. McClellan of this place, survive him and were present when he died.
When the war broke out and President Lincoln called for volunteers, Mr. McClellan was one of the many who so nobly responded, enlisting as a private in company F, 160th regiment, Ohio volunteers in May, 1861, and was discharge in September, 1864. He was a sufferer from injuries he received while in the service for which he received a pension.
In 1870, Mr. McClellan and family came to Kansas, locating near Troy, where they resided a number of years. Still imbued with the western fever, they started again in 1878, and landed at this place where they have resided ever since, being among the earliest settlers of this locality.
He was a member of Gen. Bull Post No. 106, by which noble organization he was laid to his flual rest during the exemplifying of its beautiful ritual service.
The funeral was conducted from the Congregational church, Sunday afternoon, Rev. Gray officiating. The short sermon he delivered was touching and consoling to the bereaved friends. The concourse to friends that followed the remains to the cemetery was one of the largest ever assembled in this place on a like occasion.
Thus the "old boys in blue" are dropping off one by one and it will not be long until the last one has answered "here" to the last roll call and no one will be present to sound "taps."
