Uncle Thomp Bogan Laid to Rest Sunday

   Uncle Thomp Bogan passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Oscar E. Worthington, in the Center View neighborhood, at 10 o'clock last Friday night. He had been a sufferer from brights disease for some time and for a month had been bedfast. Funeral services were held at Center View church Sunday at 11 o'clock a.m., conducted by Rev. E. W. Fickinger of Nevada, assisted by Rev. J. S. Durfee, pastor of Center View church. Burial was in Lawrence cemetery.

   The pall bearers were two of Uncle Thomp's close friends, A. Sartorius and C. R. Leneve, and four of his grandsons, Thaddaeus and Roy Worthington and George and Arthur Bogan.

   Thompson Bogan was born in Clinton, Ind., January 14, 1842, and at his death was aged 82 years, 7 months and 29 days. At the age of 20 years he left home and friends to follow the flag, serving his country faithfully for four years in Co. K, 14th Ohio Inf. He was married to Sarah Elner Gillespey February 18, 1866. To this union four children were born--James Andrew, William David, Samuel Cevigna and Carrie Jane. Of these two survive him--James A. Bogan  and Carrie J. Worthington, both of the Center View neighborhood. He is also survived by two brothers and two sisters, Charley Bogan of McLean, Tex.; A. M. Bogan of Hume; Mrs. Liza Warner of Willow, Okla., and Mrs. Samantha Kerns of Hume; also eight grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. His wife, beloved and missed by all, preceded him to the grave two years, one month and twelve days.

   In the year 1872 in a little log school house Thompson Bogan and wife became members of the United Brethren church. Faithfully they lived and faithfully they served their Lord and master. The Golden Rule was the beautiful motto of their lives. They ever lived the Christ compassion toward their fellow man. This good old couple will long be remembered by all those who have felt the touch of their pure and upright lives.
