Mr. and Mrs. Will Harshbarger attended the funeral of Mr.  Harshbarger's uncle, William R. Harshbarger at Ladoga,  Sunday.

The deceased was the son of Samuel and Elizabeth Harshbarger  and was born near Ladoga, Nov 10, 1841.

He was a minister of the Church of the Brethren, commonly  called the Dunkards and had preached over a wide area of this  country.

Word was sent from Ladoga to Colfax that "Uncle Will is dead,"  and Mont Harshbarger came from that place under the impression  that it was our Will Harshbarger. -- typed by kbz
