C.H. and Nancy E. (Cotney) Kellog

The Western Star, February 22, 1907 .

Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Kellogg Die the Same Day.

After nearly 45 years of happy wedded life together, Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Kellogg, whose home was in Nescatunga-tp., about eight miles southeast of Coldwater, both succumbed to the mandates of the great reaper, Death, on yesterday, February 21, 1907. Mrs. Kellogg died about 6:15 a.m. and Mr. Kellogg about four hours later. The cause of death was typhoid-pneumonia. Each was effected by the disease in a very similar manner. Mr. Kellogg took sick while doing some carpenter work at Geo. E. Beeley's on February 5, Mrs. Kellogg's sickness was dated from last Saturday.

The announcement of the death of Mr. and Mrs. Kellogg produced a peculiar sense of sorrow among their many friends all over the county. They were known and highly respected by a wide circle of neighbors and friends, and all unite in giving testimony of their high regard for the deceased. "They were good neighbors, kind friends and splendid citizens" is the universal expression.

Mr. and Mrs. Kellogg were natives of Connecticut. Mr. Kellogg was born in Tolland in that state on December 21, 1833. Mrs. Kellogg was born in the same county on August 20, 1836. Her maiden name was Miss Nancy E. Cotney. They were married on April 30, 1862. From Connecticut they moved to Illinois in 1860 and from Illinois they came to Kansas, settling in Comanche-co. in 1886. They continued to live here, although since 1902 they had spent considerable time at their claim in Woodward-co.

When Mrs. Kellogg was 11 years old her mother died, and being the eldest daughter, the care of a number of younger children fell upon her. She had long been a member of the Methodist Episcopal church. To the union were born three children - Edward Clarence, Archie S. and Joseph Leonard. Edward died several years ago. Archie and Leonard continue to make their home in this county or at their claims in Woodward-co.

The funeral services will take place at the home at 10 a.m. tomorrow and will be in charge of Rev. W. T. Ward of the M. E. church. Interment will be made in the Coldwater cemetery. The Rebekah lodge will have charge of the burial of Mrs. Kellogg and the Odd Fellows lodge of Mr. Kellogg. For many years Mr. Kellogg had been a prominent and worthy member of that order.

In the death of Mr. and Mrs. Kellogg the entire community sustains an irreparable loss, and they will be greatly missed by many who knew them so well. The bereaved sons have the sincere sympathy of all. The only other surviving relative in this part of the country is a brother of Mrs. Kellogg whose home is in Edmond, Okla.
