Death of Ellerd (sic--Eilert) Penning
Ellerd (sic--Eilert) Penning died at his home in Fredonia township on Monday morning shortely (sic--shortly) after nine o'clock of inflammation of the bowels. He had been very sick for a week and was in poor health for some months prior to that and about three weeks ago his condition became critical.
Mr. Penning was sixty-seven years of age and leaves a widow and nine children, all living in this county except a daughter, Mrs. Chas. Penticoff who lives in Illinois. One child died before they came to this county some seven years ago. The children living here are: Isaac, Lyman, Ina, John, Albert, Lena, Henry and Charles. The funeral will be held at the church at Seney this afternoon conducted by Rev. Karl Kaupp of the United Evangelical church and Rev. S. Skaggs pastor of the church at Seney.
The deceased was highly esteemed in the community in which he lived and his family have the sympathy of a large number of friends and neighbors in their bereavement.
