Adaline Owen Lane
A staunch friend, a loving mother and a devoted wife, and to those who have known Emma J. Lane Ellis, she has left a living memory as abiding as life itself. She was born in the Moore's Ridge neighborhood in Orange County, February 16, 1868 and passed away at the Morton Infirmary, Louisville, KY, October 16, 1938, aged 70 years and 8 months. She was the daughter of David J. and Mary McGrew Lane and moved with her parents in childhood to Dubois County and there grew up to womanhood and joined the M. E. Church at Union Valley, later transferring her membership to West Baden and has ever lived a profound Christian life. On September 18, 1887, she was married to Marvin U. Ellis and for more than fifty one years they have journeyed through life together. From this union there mourn today two daughters, Mary Owen and Olive Ballard, both of West Baden, also her husband, three grandchildren, Phyllis Freeman, Kenneth Owen and Betty Lou Cornwell, two great grandchildren, five sisters, Vina Ellis of Oklahoma, Mattie Heartsell of Kansas City, MO, Rella Lane, Sarah Grigsby and Della Davis of Washington, D.C.; three brothers, Andrew of Detroit, MI, Elmer of Loogootee, IN and Charles of Odin, IN; and a host of other relatives and friends. Her quiet, unassuming life has closed with a life of victory beyond the grave, beloved by all who knew her as Mom Ellis.
18, 1866, Marvin
Ulysses Ellis was born in Dubois County,
Indiana to the home of James M. and Mary Ellis. His many friends,
neighbors, and a host of acquaintances knew him as Mike Ellis. The
community was shocked to learn of his sudden death due to a heart
attack on September 13th, 1945 at the age of 79 years, 7 months, and 15
He was a tiller of the soil and took great pride in producing good livestock and crops.
September 18th, 1887 he was married to Emma J. Lane. Two daughters were born to this home, Mary and Olive--now Mrs. Mary Owen and Mrs. Olive Ballard, living in West Baden, Indiana. This home was unbroken through a long period of years; then seven years ago Mrs. Ellis passed away.
He leaves three grandchildren: Mrs. Donald Freeman, Mrs. Paul Cornwell and Kenneth Owen, three great grand children: Patricia and Rieta Ann Cornwell and Larry Joe Freeman; three brothers: Tom Ellis of West Baden, Ellsworth Ellis of Cuzco and Joe Ellis of Orleans.
September 5th, 1940 he married Mary E. Giles, who was a faithful companion and yet lives to cherish the memories of their home and the association of friends, neighbors and relatives.
He was a member of the West Baden Methodist Church. His home was the symbol of hospitality. He was sincere in dealing with his fellowmen. The community has lost a good citizen. The eternal values of life were exaulted by his living and tomorrow will be better by his having lived.
We think of his life in these beautiful words of the poet:
I see from my house by the side of the road,
By the side of the highway of life,
The men who press with the ardor of hope,
The men who are faint with the strife,
But I turn not away from their smiles nor their tears
Both parts of an infinite plan--
Let me live in a house by the side of the road
And be a friend to man.

We especially thank the ministers for their consoling words, Mr. and Mrs. Ritter for their efficient service, the singers Mrs. Maude and Chloe Beatty and Mr. Arnold Ellis, the pianist, the flower girls and those who sent flowers.

Elizabeth Minton Charles
Died, on Friday, December 11th, at one o'clock a.m., Calvin Leonard, aged 78 years, 4 months and 4 days. Calvin Leonard was born in North Carolina August 2nd, 1813, where his boyhood days were spent. When fourteen years of age he moved to [Orange County] Indiana where he resided until 1859 [Pioneer settlement book shows 1857]. In 1840 he was united in marriage to Miss Lucy Jiles, two sons being the fruits of this marriage, one of whom was killed in the war by the bush-whackers and the other, Franklin Leonard, is now residing in Coffey County. His second marriage occurred Dec. 15th, 1853, his bride being Miss E. J. Lane, who lives to mourn his loss. In the fall of 1859 Mr. Leonard removed to Franklin County, where he remained until 1871, when he changed his residence to Osage County, settling on the farm northwest of this city [around Quenemo], having resided there until a few years ago, he moved to this city. His sickness came upon him November 5th, 1888, and he has hardly been able to leave his bed since. He struggled manfully with the grim monster of death, but in the end was forced to succumb. The funeral was conducted by the Masonic lodge in this city, of which he was a member. A large number of friends gathered to see the last sad rites performed before committing to mother earth the mortal part. It is unnecessary for us to speak in detail of Mr. Leonard's many excellent qualities for our readers well knew them. A good and worthy man, prosperous in business and charitable in heart; nought but kind feeling are entertained for his memory. His lips are sealed but his acts speak for him. Rev. Cramor preached the funeral services, the remains being laid to rest in the Quenemo cemetery. “Come home, thy work is done.”

Lucy Lane was born February 16, 1839 in Orange County, Indiana and lived there all the early part of her life.

At the time of Mr. Leonard's death September 22, less than two months ago, Mrs. Leonard was sick, and her great sorrow together with her advance years proved too much for the tired body, and in spite of all that loving hands could do, she passed away Tuesday, November 15, at the age of 71 years, 8 months and 29 days, anxious to go to meet her Lord and her loved ones gone on before. Early in life she united with the Christian church, and has been faithful to Him whom she confessed. Besides the children, she leaves twenty-seven grandchildren, one great grandchild, and a number of relatives besides a host of friends to mourn her loss. The funeral was held Thursday afternoon from the home of her daughter, Mrs. F. J. Baldwin and was very largely attended. L. M. Wiles, minister of the Christian church was in charge of the services and preached an eloquent sermon full of comfort for the bereaved family and friends. The interment was in Graceland Cemetery beside the body of Mr. Leonard.

Mrs. William Hobson was taken suddenly ill Friday night about ten o'clock and almost before medical attendance reached her side, had passed from this life. Up to the time of her death she had been in fair condition of health and her sudden death came as a painful surprise to her numerous friends here.

She was married to William Hobson at Paoli, Ind., January 6, 1858. They moved to Kansas in 1863, arriving at Lawrence the morning of the Quantrell raid. Of five children, all boys, four survive the mother. She is also survived by her husband, three brothers and one sister.

He was a member of the I.O.O.F. Lodge fifty-two years. He was also a member of the A.O.U.W. Lodge and a member of the Christian church. Father Hobson was a great man. His greatness was manifested in that he lived what he professed. Something very unusual could be said of father and mother Hobson in their home live. They never spoke unkind words to one another. We certainly will miss the wonderful influence of such a noble life. God bless the memory of Father Hobson to the good of Society. We are sure that the pure sterling character of this noble life will be the stay of hope and honor of his children. As we look over the past and behold the triumphs of such men as Father Hobson, we take courage in the cloudy days of life. God bless the bereaved relatives. The funeral was conducted by Rev. E. Neal at the Methodist church, assisted by Rev. Ermy, pastor of the church.

(or Sheridan) Lane
J. S. Lane passed away at the hospital at Ottawa Sunday night. As related in the Herald last week, Mr. Lane was taken to the hospital suffering with a strangulated hernia. Due to Bright's disease and his age, an operation was deemed unsafe at the time, but the strangulation of the bowel was finally relieved and the operation tried as a last resort to procure a recovery. James Sheridan Lane was born May 8, 1851, at French Lick Springs, Indiana, and at the time of his death was 75 years, 11 months and 22 days of age. He came from Indiana to Kansas with his family in 1878, and has been an active resident of Osage county for many years. While a young man in his early twenties he was united in marriage with Sarah Ellen Collins of French Lick Springs, Ind., and to this union were born eight children. Three of these children died in infancy; Lee Oscar died some ten years ago at the age of 41 years and is buried in the Lyndon cemetery. Mrs. Lane departed this life July 7, 1924, and there is left to mourn the death of their father Thomas Lane of St. Louis, Mo.; Mrs. Elsie Latimer of Ottawa, Kas.; Asher Lane of Topeka; and Mrs. Winnifred Nelson of Pomona, Calif. Mr. Lane was well known all over this part of Kansas as an auctioneer, which vocation he had followed for the past thirty years. He was sheriff of Osage County for two terms.

Price of the United Presbyterian church, neighbor and close friend of Mr. Lane, assisted with the last rites." The Pomona Republican (May 5, 1927) reported "James Sheridan Lane, ell-known retired auctioneer and ex-sheriff of Osage County, died Sunday night at 11:40 o'clock at Community Hospital, Ottawa. Uremia and chronic nephritis caused his death, an operation having failed to give relief. Mr. Lane was nearly 76 years old. He was born May 9, 1851 in French Lick, Indiana. Mrs. Lane died July 7, 1924. Mrs. Roy Nelson of RR 2 is a daughter of the deceased. Besides Mrs. Nelson one daughter and two sons survive.

The funeral was Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the home in Lyndon, with Rev. W. S. Price of the United Presbyterian church and Rev E. Elswick of the Christian church officiating. Burial was in the Lyndon cemetery beside the grave of his wife and a son.
The community was very much surprised and shocked Monday to hear that Mrs. J. S. Lane was dead. She had been in her usual health in the morning. Mr. Lane came down town, and upon returning home he found her sitting in a rocking chair, quite dead. Some four years ago, Mrs. Lane suffered a stroke of paralysis on the right side. Her death was probably due to another stroke. Mrs. Lane was the mother of five children, four of whom are living. They are Thomas of St. Louis; Mrs. Elsie Latimer of Ottawa, Kas.; Asher Lane of Topeka, and Mrs. Winifred Nelson of Pomona.

Little Geraldine was one of the most loyal of the bible School of the Christian Church and had her name on the cradle roll throughout her babyhood days.
