Frank Z. McNutt, the fifth victim of influenza in this  community, died at an early hour on Sunday morning, after an  illness of nearly two weeks. From the beginning the disease  assumed a grave type and hope for his recovery was given up some  time before his death. Funeral services at the home of Mr. &  Mrs. Samuel McNutt, E. of town on Monday afternoon were conducted  by Rev. JT Boyer. Interment at the Presbyterian Cemetery. Frank  Z. McNutt was born Aug 12, 1885, the oldest son of Samuel and  Sarah McNutt. He was married to Miss Irene Hitch Sept 5, 1906 to  which union 3 children were born: Margaret, Darwin and Joseph.  His entire life was spent in this community, where he was loved  and respected by all who knew him. At an early age he united with  the Presb. Church of this place, of which he was a member until  his death. On Oct 28th he was stricken with the influenza which  developed pneumonia and after several days of almost unbearable  suffering, which he bore with patience, on the morning of Nov. 10  his spirit was released from his earthly body and took its flight  to the home beyond. Those present from a distance were: Mr. &  Mrs. RW Allen; Rex Simpson and Louis Jones of Crawfordsville;  Miss Margaret McNutt of Terre Haute and John Hitch of Darlington.  Mr. McNutt was universally liked and was to be depeneded on for  any public activity. It was largely owing to his efforts that the  flag staff was raised here, and the fine flag which he donated  was hoisted at half mast during the funeral. He was an active  member of the KP fraternity. He engaged in various business  enterprises, conducting a store at Milligan and latterly engaging  in the drug business here. The entire family was ill with the  disease at the time. Two of the children have recovered, but Mrs.  McNutt and Darwin are in a critical condition. - typed by kbz
