CHARLES J. TODD - At his home in Milledgeville, Ill., of consumption on Wednesday, Sept. 23, 1896, Charley J. Todd, aged 29 Years, 9 mts and 16 days. Charley J. Todd was born in Wysox township, Dec. 7, 1866, and was the older of a family of two children. His mother died when he was but a small child. On July 4, 1890, he was united in marriage to Miss Etta Cronister of Milledgeville. They lived about Milledgeville nearly three years, part of the time being spent on a farm. They afterwards moved to Albany thence to Morrison, at both places he followed his trade, that of a barber. Last October, Charley was taken sick with Lagrippe from which he never recovered. He was compelled to quit work and last March, moved to Milledgeville to be near his relatives. He gradually grew weaker, but he bore his suffering patiently, and always seemed hopeful. At times his suffering was intense, but death came to his relief on Wednesday morning, Sept. 23, 1896, at ten minutes to four o'clock. Charley was ever a kind and loving husband and father, looking well to the wants of his family. He made friends easily and was highly esteemed by a large circle of friends. He leaves a wife, a little daughter, four years old; one sister, Mrs. C.A. Landis of Marshalltown, Iowa; a father, step-mother, two half sisters and two half-brothers. His was a lingering disease and silently he has passed from among us, he will be missed in the home circle, but we are comforted with the thought that God doeth all things for the best.

The funeral services were held Friday morning, Sept. 25, 1896 at the South Elkhorn church, conducted by Rev. F.L. Baldwin. Interment took place in the cemetery near the church.
