This community was startled Wednesday morning to learn of the death of Silas Ceperly, one of the old residents of this vicinity, which occurred Tuesday night about ten o'clock at his home southwest of town, of inflammation of the bowels. He had been sick but a few days and his condition was not thought to be serious till Monday morning. His brother George of Parkersburg and Will of this place were at his bedside when the final dissolution came.

The funeral services were held this afternoon at the late home of the deceased and the remains buried in Fairfield cemetery. Mr. Ceperly was about forty-one years old.

Silas Ceperley, living near Stout, died this morning of appendicitis after an illness of only five days. Drs. Hobson of Parkersburg and Dr. Evans of New Hartford were in attendance. Nothing could be done to relieve him, and the attack was so severe an operation could not be performed. The funeral will be held at Mr. Ceperley's late residence at 1:30 p.m. tomorrow and interment will be in Fairfield cemetery. Mr. Ceperley carried a policy in the Modern Woodmen of America, and was a member of New Hartford camp. His friends and mourners are many.
