Marlow, Eugene Kenneth

Eugene Kenneth Marlow, aged 3, was killed instantly Sunday afternoon at 1:10 about four miles west of Littleton on Route 101 , when he fell from the car driven by his father, Kenneth Marlow, of near Golden.
Mr. and Mrs. Marlow and their two sons Keith, 6, and Eugene 3, were driving towards their home when the accident occurred. Eugene, who was in the back seat of the Marlow car, evidently opened the rear door and fell out into the path of an oncoming car being driven towards the east by Glade Toland of Brooklyn. The child was practically decapitated.
Death was ruled accidental by Coroner V. M. Corman of Rushville who conducted an investigation on the spot of the accident, after he had been summoned there by Sheriff Grace Kelly. State policeman Glen Robeson, who was called to the scene of the accident, stated that it seemed after the impact with the Toland car, the child was thrown back onto the father's car and was dragged, for several yards.
Eugene Kenneth Marlow was born Feb. 10, 1949, a son of Kenneth and Nancy Chockley Marlow. Surviving besides the parents and infant brother are three grandparents, Guy, Marlow of east of Golden, Mr. and Mrs. H. Earl Chockley of near Littletown.
Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 in the home and at 2 in the Mt. Horeb church east of Golden. The Rev. J. A .Mason pastor of the Methodist church at Rushville officiated. Burial was in Mt. Horeb cemetery.

Montooth, George
Geo. Montooth, Civil War Veteran, Died In Macomb
George Montooth, Civil War veteran, and a resident of Oakland Township for almost eighty years, died Thursday morning at the home of this daughter, Mrs. Earl Haney, in Macomb with whom he had made his home for the last four years.
The remains accompanied by his family and thirteen members of McDonough County Post No. 6, American Legion of Macomb were brought to Rushville Sunday afternoon. Funeral services were held from the M. E. Church at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. C. W. Monton, assisted by Rev. R. T. Artis of Camden. An impressive memorial service given by the G. A. R. Circle followed the services at the church and The Daughter of Veterans paid their tribute in a service at the cemetery. Only a few of the Civil War veterans were able to attend the funeral. McDonough County Post American Legion No. 6 was represented by Commander W. R. Butterfield, who was in command of the military escort that marched to the cemetery, where Chaplain W. R. Jenkins conducted the burial service, attended by the color guard. A military salute by the firing squad was the last tribute paid this veteran soldier.
George Montooth was born June 23, 1843, at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and died September 15, 1927, at Macomb, aged 84 years, 2 months, and 23 days. At the age of two years, he came with his parents to Schuyler County, and with the exception of the last four years had been a resident of Oakland Township. Then his health began to fail four years ago he went to Macomb to live at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Earl Haney.
He was married March 28, 1860 to Mary Jane Sloan, who preceded him to the home beyond sixteen years ago. To this union were born thirteen children. Two daughters, Mrs. Mary Snyder and Mrs. Louella Frye preceded him in death.
The children surviving are: Mrs. Fanny Haney; Mrs. Alice VanOrder; Mrs. Grace Jones of Ray; Mrs. Effie Ashwood of Muskogee, Okla.; Mrs. Lizzie Walker and Ed of Pasadena, Calif; and Frank and Warren of Watertown, South Dakota.
He is also survived by sixty-one grandchildren, twenty-three great-grandchildren, one brother, James Montooth and one sister, Mrs. Katherine Dean, both of Rushville.
He was converted during the great revival at Ray that was held many years ago in an old log school house east of the farm residence of Gilbert McMillen. He and his wife later united with the Methodist Episcopal Church and remained true to the faith and often during his last sickness told his children he was ready and waiting for the summons "Come enter into the joys of the Lord".
During the Civil War, he was among the first to enlist for service and served his country thirty-seven months in 119th Illinois, Infantry, Company B. It was a great pleasure to talk of the experiences and love of comrades to comrades and just a few days ago, while visiting with his pastor, told of the wonderful life and love for Lincoln. Mr. Montooth was a great reader and staunch supporter of his political party.
He was a very successful farmer and lived on the old homestead until about thirty years ago when he retired from farming to engage in the general merchandise business at Ray. He also served seventeen years as Postmaster. After the death of his wife he disposed of his business and moved back to the farm. Two years later he again moved to Ray. In a short time his health began to fail and it was then he moved to Macomb where he resided until his death. Most of the time during the past year he was confined to his home. Wednesday morning, he was taken much worse. The children were called, but all they could do was to ease and help bear his suffering until early Thursday morning he fell peacefully asleep to awake in the beautiful rearms of Heaven.
Mr. Montooth was always a friend to those in trouble and need and his work will live on. He was a Christian man, a loving father and a true friend and neighbor, loved and respected by all who knew him.
Thus with the passing of this aged, loved, and respected citizen, another of God's appointed has gone to the home prepared by God and His Angels, to a "House not made with hands, eternal in the Heavens".

Again has the death angel visited our community, as the beloved wife and infant babe of Walter Montooth died this (Tuesday) morning. It is indeed very sad, as this is the third one in the Montooth family to die within one week. Mrs. Montooth was a loving wife and mother, a kind friend and a good neighbor, who will be sadly missed in the community.

Mrs. Montooth lives behind her husband, two small children, her parents, two sisters and one brother, with a host of friends, to mourn her loss.
