Obituary: CLEAR--David H., died in the Old Bond County (Illinois) Church. He was born October 24 - 1844, and passed away April 17 - 1890, age 45 yrs. 5 mo. 23 das. He leaves a side companion and four children, of his last wife and one child living of his first companion, (who preceded him in death, about 19 years,) to mourn their deep and heavy loss. The cause of his death was a gun shot wound received while in the Army, he being of Company B, First Indiana Cavalry. He had suffered for a good many years, more so for the last year or two. His sufferings were at times beyond description. In his death, the Sister, his side companion, loses an affectionate and loving husband and the children a kind father and the neighbors, a good neighbor and the Church a good Friend. The remains were taken to the Baptist Church House in Keysport, where the funeral service was held by Elder Joshua Kessler, then to the last resting place, followed by a large concourse of relatives and friends. Thus the body returns to dust and the Spirit to GOD who gave it, until the Resurrection Day.
