"The Red Oak Sun", Red Oak, Montgomery Co., Iowa. 1 December 1893

Died.--Nov. 20, 1893, near Stennett, from typhoid fever, Edgar, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Stennett, aged 23 years and 8 months.

The deceased was unmarried. He had always lived with his parents, near Stennett, where he was well known as a kind and worthy young man. Many times it was said after his death, “Edgar had no enemies in the world.”

A short time before his death he asked that I be sent for. Being in the vicinity, I hastened to his side. He wished to tell me, he said, of his willingness to obey Christ and of his hope and trust in Him. A few hours later he fell asleep as a merry child at the close of day.

The family of which he was a beloved member are left to mourn for one they all dearly loved. A large congregation of friends gathered at the Union church at Stennett to listen to words of comfort spoken by the writer and to look once more on the face of the beloved dead.
