friends and acquaintances of Benjamin M. Holaday were greatly shocked
to learn, on Saturday morning last (April 3, 1875), of his death, which
occurred at 3 o'clock that morning from a congestive chill. Hr. Holaday
was sick but a short time and almost from his first attack it was
evident that he could not recover. He was attended in his last sickness
by his friend and family physician, Dr. Lee Hazlewood, who did all that
medical skill could do to save the dying man, but it was of no avail.
He died peacefully and calmly, surrounded by his entire family and a
large number of friends and neighbors by whom he was justly held in
great estimation. In the death of Mr. Holaday this county looses an old
pioneer, he having resided here for more than half a century. He was
born in Chatham County, North Carolina, in 1815 and removed with his
mother to this county in 1826, be being the last survivor out of a
family of ten brothers and sisters except two, Joshua Holaday and
Hannah Hadley, who lives at this time in Wayne County, Illinois, and in
Parke County, Indiana respectively. Mr. Holaday was twice married and
the father, we believe, of six children five sons, namely Vandever,
Patrick, William, Joel and Henry Holaday and one daughter, Mrs. Sarah
Stroud, the wife of Mr. George W. Stroud. His first wife was Cynthia
Noblitt, to whom he was married Dec. 2, 1841. Mrs. Holaday died in
1857. He was again married Jan. 29, 1861, to Samaria Danner, who with
her only son, Henry, survive him.
was buried on Sunday last at Rock Springs burying ground. The large
attendance at his funeral demonstrates the esteem in which he was held
in this community.

citizens of our town were startled about noon last Friday by the report
that the dead body of Thomas Stalcup, a well known citizen of our town
had been found lying in the street south of and ear the southeast
corner of the cemetery. The body was first discovered by Hiram Lindley,
of Bloomington, who at once gave the alarm, and in a short time a large
number of our citizens had gathered at the spot. The body was lying
directly across the road, on its face, with the head to the south, and
seemed to be lying just as it had fallen, there being no evidences of
any struggle, and no marks of violence, save a few abrasions about the
face, made by falling on some stones. There was quite a pool of
coagulated blood about the mouth. The body was at once removed to Mr.
Stalcup's ;ate residence, and the Coroner, Alexander McCracken,
notified, who held an inquest, the result of which was that he found
that the deceased came to his death from hemorrhage of the lungs, The
remains were interred Saturday morning. deceased leaves a divorced wife
and four little children. Mr. Stalcup has suffered frequently during
the past few years with hemorrhages, a fact know to but few of our
citizens, as he continued to attend his store, and his sudden death was
a surprise and shock to the community. He had amassed considerable
property, which, after the settlement of his estate, will all go to his
children, At the March term of court his wife was decreed a divorce and
$1,000 alimony and consequently has no further interest or claim upon
his estate. Deceased has his faults - who of us have not - but was
honorable in his dealings with his fellow man. Peace to his ashes.

christian and a good woman. The family had lost a noble companion and a

smiles and hopeful words of sympathy will be missed but believing and
