Charles E. Linthicum, a prominent citizen of Grove township, died Staurday after an illness of more than two years, with a complication of ailments that baffled the skill of physicians.  Deceased leaves a wife, five children, numerous relatives and many friends to mourn his death.  He was born near Gila, Dec. 3, 1852.  His wife's maiden name was Emma Eagleton.  We have known Mr. Linthicum quite well since 1882 and always found him to be a gentleman of the strictest integrity.  He served one or two terms as supervisor and filled other local offices satisfactorily to the public.  Funeral services were held Sunday by Rev. H.L. Merrick, of the M.E. church, and interment in a cemetery in the neighborhood.  A large number of people throughout the county attended and paid their last respects to him.  "The Newton Press", Wednesday, August 19, 1896

Many thanks to Paul Linthicum for this picture!!!
