ANOTHER PIONEER GONE.
Jacob Kenline, one of Starke county's pioneer citizens passed away at his home on St. Louis street Wednesday evening, Jan. 1, at half-past eight o'clock, after an illness of but three days. He had not been in in good health for some time but dangerous symptoms did not develop until Monday on before his death which was caused from old age, rather than disease. Deceased was born in Wurtenburg, Germany, July 1, 1819, and came to this country in 1858, residing the first seven years in Cass county and coming to Starke county in 1865. He was married in 1862 to Mary Remp. To them five children were born, only three of whom with the widow surviving. The surviving children are John and Lewis Kenline of Logansport, and Fred M. Kenline of Sedalia, Missouri. The funeral was conducted Saturday afternoon from the Round Lake church, in charge of Rev. Tannehill, interment being made in the Round Lake cemetery.
