The remains were brought to Paola, arriving Saturday, and were taken to the home of his
son-in-law, L. T. Bradbury, from where the funeral services, conducted by Rev. Handy, pastor of
the Congregational church and in charge of McCaslin post, were held Sunday afternoon.
With his wife he is survived by four sons and three daughters, Mrs. J. C. Pickering of
Coffeyville, Mrs. C. W. Werst of Philadelphia, Pa., Mrs. L. T. Bradbury, Frank, Dee, Clarence,
