Robert D. McBride

Civil War Veteran

The Western Star, March 18, 1893.

The Last Struggle

The sad intelligence reaches us of the death of Robert D. McBride, which occurred at his home in Avilla towhship Wednesday morning at 6 o'clock. For a number of weeks the deceased has been struggling with the grim destroyer, and anxious relatives and friends have hoped to restore vitality to his weakened constitution, but it seems to no avail, and he yielded to the mandate of the Great Commander. Mr. McBride is an old and highly respected citizen, and one of the noble veterans of the civil war, and to his grief stricken family the entire community extends profound sympathy. Rev. Woodburn conducted the funeral services Thursday forenoon, when the body was laid to rest in the Avilla cemetery.

Miller Rowley "Rolla" McBride, son of Robert D. McBride.
