Henry Longley died at the Sittjers home in Holland at five o'clock Friday afternoon. He had been sick for a week, first with inflammation of the bowels and later with typhoid fever.
Funeral services were held at the Siemssen Church west of Fern at 1:30 Tuesday afternoon. Interment was made in the Siemsen church cemetery.
The deceased was 18 years old. He was born in Wichita, Kansas and came to Grundy county four years ago when he was adopted by Mr. and Mrs. John F. Meester by whom he has been regarded as their own son. The young man's mother is dead. His father and stepmother and four brothers reside in Wichita. The father John Longley came Sunday and remained until after the funeral.
The attendance at the funeral was larger than the church would hold and all those who were present regarded the young man's death as a loss to the community.
