BURIAL OF I. D. VORE
The funeral of Capt. I. D. Vore, which occurred last Sunday afternoon from the residence on Mulberry street, was attended by an unusually large number of friends, and the services, conducted by Rev. Elliott of the First Presbyterian church were beautiful and impressive. The Knights Templar of De Molay Commandery No. 1 attended in uniform, Captain Vore having been a member of that organization.
Yesterday morning the remains were taken to West Liberty, the former home of the captain, where they were buried in Oak Ridge cemetery. They were accompanied to the train by an escort of the Knights, and of the G. A. R., the pall bearers being three from each organization, as follows: J. W. Eells, Fred Nesper, J. A. Evans, of West Liberty, and Gus Schmidt, Robert Baird, and A. G. Tyler. These gentlemen with the addition of G. M. Titus, Tom Watson, G. Ac. Reimeke, Frank Geisler, Sam Fox, M. L. Mikesell and Chas. Gobble, formed the escort.
The burial service was simple, the brief, but impressive ritual of the Knights Templar consigning the dead soldier to his last sleep. The funeral party returned on the noon train.
