Thursday 2 July 1903
Simon Dike, an old and esteemed citizen of this county, died at his home in Malvern Wednesday morning, July 1, after a lingering illness of some weeks duration. The funeral will take place at the residence this afternoon at two o’clock conducted by Rev. H.R. Waldo of the Baptist church. The deceased would have been 91 years of age had he lived until September next. He was born in Belmont, New York, but had lived in this state some forty years coming to Malvern about two years ago. He served through the Mexican war with honor and was ever an upright respected citizen. He was the father of ten sons all of whom survive him, but the most lived at too great a distance to get home for the funeral.
