Curtis Gilliam, who has been seriously ill for some time with anemia, passed away at 5:25 Sunday afternoon, September 18th, just fourteen days past his 52nd birthday, having been born near this city on September 4th, 1875. He had been ailing for over a year but had been in bed about fourteen weeks. Everything was done that medical science knew, but he gradually grew worse.
The funeral service held at the Christian church at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, Rev. W. B. F. Robb officiating. Burial was in the Blair Cemetery, to which place his body followed by a long line of cars, for Mr. Gilliam was a good citizen and has made many friends.
He was united in marriage to Miss Nettie Jackson in the city on June 18, 1903, and six children were born to them, one daughter Ethel, dying in infancy. There are: John, aged 23, Vivenne, aged 21, Clifford, aged 15, Ada, aged 13 and Bennie is 11 years of age.
Besides the wife he is survived by three brothers, Charles, of the city, and James and John, of Tekamah, all being present for the funeral service yesterday.
Mr. Gilliam had been in the dray business here for many years and carried the respect of everyone for his square dealing and honorable character in every way. He carried $2,000 old line life insurance, which shows something of his foresight and thriftiness.
His daughter, Vivienne, an employee of the Blair Telephone Co., has been sick for several weeks with typhoid fever and was unable to attend the funeral service.
"Brighter than the glorious sunsets, That delight this earthly clime, Than the splendors of its dawning, Breaking o'er the hills of time.
In the richness of the radiance of the land beyond the sun, Where the noble have their country when the work of life is done."
