Surviving are two sons, Virgil of route six, Ralph, of Decatur; a daughter, Mrs. Cecil Gause, of this city, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Two sisters, Mrs. Mary Laisure of Monroeville and Mrs. Luck Small of Miles, Wis.; two brothers, William Draper of Decatur and John of Monroeville.

Funeral services will be held Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Gause residence, 122 South Eighth street and burial will be in the Decatur cemetery. Rev. George S. Lozier and Rev. D. W. Patterson will officiate.
