Wm. H. Crosnoe
Popular Young Farmer Died At His Home Today
Wm. H. Crosnoe died this morning at 9:30 o'clock
at his home in McClellan township.
He was stricken seriously Wednesday night and had been
unconscious ever since. He had suffered an attack of
summer influenza a short time ago , and had not regained
his strength, and this is believed to have been in part,
at least, the cause of his death, although he had been up
and about, working as usual on his farm Wednesday all day.
Mr. Crosnoe was 23 years old and is survived by his widow,
who before his marriage was Miss Hilda Bodine, and a little
son 10 months old; and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Crosnoe,
and by a brother Lee Crosnoe of Decatur, a sister, Mrs. Lee
Tannehill, of Chester, and a brother, Howard and sister, Helen,
He was a grandson of the late Joseph H. Crosnoe, in his day one
of the best known and most highly respected farmers and businessmen
in Jefferson county.
He was graduated from the Mt. Vernon Township High School in the
class of 1929 and later attended the Illinois State University
Deepest and universal regret is expressed at his death at such an
early age, and many tributes are paid to his worth as a man, husband,
and father and citizen. He was of the best type of man, conscientious,
ambitious, industrious and progressive, and his loss is most deeply
deplored. He left nothing undone to promote the happiness and welfare
of his loved ones, and left the impression on the time in which he lived.
Posessed of unusual natural ability, further increased by study and
observation, had he lived, it is predicted he would have accomplished
much of practical good to any locality in which he might live.
Funeral services will be held at South Hickory Hill Sunday afternoon
at 2:30 o'clock and burial will follow in the cemetery adjoining the church.
