Death Claimed a Good Man.
Consumption has claimed another victim, and sorrow and tears are left where once were rejoicing and happiness.
For a number of months Ralph [Leo] SHAY, the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. John [Valentine and Mary "Emma"
(TURNER)] SHAY, of Blockton, has been hovering between life and death, and finally, on Thursday of last
week, breathed his last about 9 o'clock, and his spirit returned to the God who gave it.
He leaves parents,
sister, wife and baby to mourn his untimely death, he having been cut down in the strength of his young
manhood. Many friends sympathize with the bereaved ones.
Funeral will be Saturday morning at 11 a.m.
and interment in Rose Hill cemetery [Blockton].
