Mr. A. E. Cleavinger, one of the most respected citizens of Leavenworth county, died unexpectedly Friday evening at his home on his farm near Lowemont. He was 67 years of age and the father of seven children who with their mother survive and mourn his loss.

Mr. Cleavinger had been ailing for some time with a complication of troubles incident to a gentleman of his age and active pursuits; but seemed much better Friday morning. He was up and ate dinner and seemed to be in comparatively good spirits. About 7 o'clock he complained of weariness and 8 o'clock he was dead, of heart failure.

The deceased was born in Kentucky in 1826 and removed to Missouri when a young man. In 1855 he came to Kansas and homesteaded the 320 acres of land upon which he built the home where he breathed the last.

He was known throughout the county as one of the prominent citizens, quiet in his demeanor, yet wielding a powerful influence in questions of importance to the county. Politically he was an old time Democrat, honest in his convictions, though he was no politican.

His children are: Miss Rebecca A. Cleavinger, a well known and efficient teacher in the country schools; Mr. Asa Cleavinger, who with his family resides at Fairmount; Mr. Joe Cleavinger, who has a family and lives at Winchester; Mrs. Nannie, wife of Hon. A. M. Cory; Mr. J. W. Cleavinger, who lives near the home farm and Moses and Miss May Cleavinger who are living at the homestead.

The funeral will take place at 12 o'clock tomorrow from the Cleavinger residence.

The interment will take place at Round Prairie cemetery.
