DEATH OF OLIVER G. CRANDOL
Last evening at 7:15 o’clock occurred the death of Oliver G. Crandol, at his home over 205 West Second street, after an illness of three days. Mr. Crandol had been in broken health for quite a while, his sight and hearing being affected, though not so much as to prevent him from pursuing his usual occupation. Last Sunda he was on the street, having gone to a drug store for medicine for his brother Thomas, who lived with him, and who has been seriously ill and whose condition gives no promise of recovery. Oliver’s death is attributed to general debility.
Decedent was born January 13, 1838, at Tuckshoe Bridge, Cape May, New Jersey, and came to Muscatine with his parents in 1842, residing here continuously for fifty-nine years. For a number of years Mr. Crandol was in the employ of McQuesten & Sawyer and was one of the best hardware clerks in the city. Subsequently he was foreman in the box department at the oatmeal mill, until his eyesight failed him, since which time he became a peddler. Mrs. Crandol preceded him in death, passing away in 1882. He is survived by his daugther, Miss Clara, his brother, Thomas, and two sisters, Mrs. William Fressler and Mrs. Charles Foster.
The funeral announcement will appear later.
