Robert McWilliam died at the home of his aunt, Mrs. T. W. Hazelton, on Christmas eve, and was buried Sunday, Dec. 26th. He was the last of the immediate family to succumb to consumption, having lost mother, father and sister from that disease within the last few years. The short funeral service at the house was conducted by the Masonic order, of which deceased was a member, after which the remains were taken to Ossian, where the funeral cortege was joined by the members of Arcturus Lodge of that place, and the body laid at rest with due Masonic ceremonies in the Ossian cemetery, where the mother of deceased also lies buried.

Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows he was born Jan. 17, 1878 and is buried in the Hillside Cemetery.
