Died of Typhoid fever in Reno co., Kansas, Jan. 8th, 1885 , after a long and painful sickness, Robert L. Tuley, aged 21 years, 4 months and 4 days. Robert was born in Lewis co., Mo. Aug. 4th 1863 and remained with his aged parents until the spring of 1881 when he came to Kansas to visit a sister and get him a home in the new west. His sickness was of long duration but not a murmur was heard from his lips. Six weeks before his death, no one thought that the circle of friends would be broken by one so young and who seemed to have so long a lease upon life. But alas, a young man in the bloom of manhood, honored, and esteemed has been taken from our midst and now sleeps in the silent graveyard. Friends young and old miss him for he was esteemed by all who knew him, and during his short stay in Kansas he had made a host of friends. His remains were intered in the Sego cemetery, followed by a large concourse of people. May heaven bless his aged parents who were too far away to speak words of comfort to their child in his last sickness or to see him as he so peacefully slept in death, and may parents, brothers, and sisters all meet again in that sun bright clime where sickness never comes.
