Death at Burr Oak.
On Monday last Edwin Price, son of Mr. and Mrs. Dan Price of Burr Oak, died from pneumonia, aged twenty- three years. Mr. Price was a promising young man and a great favorite among the young people of his acquaintance—so much so that a large party which was to have been given at Burr Oak this week has been indefinitely postponed on account of his death. The funeral services were held yesterday at the family home near Burr Oak and were largely attended. Rev. J. Hilburn officiated. The sincere sympathy of many friends goes out to the family in the affliction which has thus visited them.

Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows he was born January 15, 1875 and is buried in the Burr Oak Cemetery. His name is shown as both Edwin and Edward.

He leaves, besides his parents, two sisters, five brothers, and many friends to mourn his departure. His illness was very brief and his sudden death came as a shock to his companions and friends. Dutiful as a son, affectionate as a brother, quiet in his manner his sunshiny face was the index to his happy disposition. To know him was to respect him. The funeral services were conducted from the Burr Oak M. E. church, Rev. J. Hilburn officiating.
