Inquest is Held.
Unexpected and sudden was the death at 5 o’clock yesterday afternoon, of Mrs. Mary BOPP, an aged woman whose home was at 1110 Spring Street. She was stricken with heart disease while on the street and expired a few minutes later as she was seated on the curb alone. Mrs. BOPP at the time of the fatal attack was returning home from a trip to the South Side, and she died while on Ohio Street near Tenth. Mrs. Charles A. GIESEKER of 1011 Ohio street, was standing in the front yard at her home and saw Mrs. BOPP fall forward suddenly on the pavement. Mr. GIESEKER was summoned by his wife and went to Mrs. BOPP’s assistance. Mrs. BOPP in the meantime had arisen and seated herself on the curb. Mr. GIESEKER found her gasping for breath and she died a few minutes later. He asked her what was the matter, but she made no reply, although she raised her head. She gasped a few times then and fell over dead. Mrs. BOPP was carrying a market basket containing a number of packages on her arm when she was stricken. Women living nearby who knew the deceased said that she had visited their homes often, soliciting discarded clothing, shoes and the like, and they thought she was on the same kind of an errand yesterday. The police station was notified immediately of Mrs. BOPP’s death and Station Officer, HILDEBRAND responded with the patrol wagon. He apprised the coroner and also Mrs. BOPP’s brother Gus GILKER with whom she made her home. The body was removed to the Freiberg morgue, where Coroner THOMAS held an inquest this morning. Mr. GILKER, brother of the deceased stated that his sister had been subject to attacks of heart disease , and was afflicted lately more than heretofore. He said he advised her not to leave the house while the weather was so hot and was not aware that she had gone away yesterday. Mrs. BOPP was sixty-four years old. She had lived in this city a number of years. She was the widow of John BOPP. Her husband passed away about twenty years ago.

BROADY died at 7 o’clock yesterday morning at the home of her brother-in-law, Judge Jefferson H. BROADY, in this city, of consumption. Mr & Mrs BROADY were married a year ago last February in Quincy, Ill., and will be remembered by many people of Beatrice when they were here on their wedding trip visiting Judge BROADY.

Three months ago she and her husband came to Beatrice with the hope of benefitting her health, but she failed rapidly until the time of her death.

Quincy Daily Whig newspaper, November 21, 1907 ***JUDGE BROADY’S FINAL SUMMONS *** WELL KNOWN JURIST AND CITIZEN PASSED AWAY LAST EVENING AT 8:40 *** Had Been Unconscious the Greater Part of the Time Since He Was Stricken, Tuesday Evening *** John C. BROADY, former circuit judge of this district and a life-long resident of Adams county, died last evening at 8:40 o’clock, of cerebral hemorrhage, with which he was stricken Tuesday evening at 10:30, and from which he never rallied. A second attack followed yesterday morning and from that time on Judge BROADY remained unconscious to the end. Throughout the past summer, the Judge noted his health was gradually declining, but said little to his friends about it. He was able to continue his practice and was almost daily at his office, up to and including the day he was stricken. The sudden taking away of this estimable citizen comes as a great shock to the community where he was held in the highest esteem, and where his death will be deeply mourned by all who know him, both as a citizen and as an official. ***Born in Adams County*** John C BROADY was born on a farm in Liberty, this county, June 29, 1849, and always of a studious disposition, he spent much time with his books, although up to the age of 21 his schooling was confined to the district school and the Quincy schools, and such other learning as he could secure by studying at home. He taught school in Richfield township for a short time, and saved the money to enter the law department of the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. He graduated there, and then read law for a time with the late Judge THOMPSON, and in June 1874, was admitted to the bar. He was nominated for circuit judge in the democratic convention of 1897, never having been a candidate for office up until that time, and was elected to the bench, where he presided as a fair and impartial judge for six years. At the expiration of his term he continued the practice of law, until his final summons came. Judge BROADY was twice married, his first wife, Miss Mollie TAYLOR, having preceded him in death 20 years ago. To this union one son, Bruce BROADY, was born. He arrived this morning from Ann Arbor, where he is attending college. Next Tuesday will be the fourth anniversary of the second marriage of the deceased, to Miss Stella JANSEN, who, together with one daughter aged 2 years, survives.

BROADY of Lincoln, Neb., who is a personal friend of William Jennings Bryan, the latter having visited often with the deceased’s brother; Mrs Margaret DAVIS, Blue Mound, Kan.; Mrs Viola RHOADES, Carrollton, Mo., and Dolphus S BROADY and Miss Ione BROADY, of Quincy.

As a ministering angel at the beside of the sick, and in attention to the wants of the poor, as an care most worker in every charitable and benevolent enterprise, she is justly entitled to that high eulogy pronounced by the Savior upon one of her sex: “she hath done what she could.” ” Thou art gone to the grave, but we will not declare thee, Since God was thy ransom, thy guardian and guide; He gave, He took thee, and one has rest thou, Where she has no sting since the Savior his died.” Her funeral will take place from the Vermont St. M.

August GILKER died October 20, 1916
Aged Man Suffocates in Paint Shop Fire
“Gus” GILKER, 70 Years Old, Victum of Flames in KERN Paint Shop Fire.
When he is Trapped in his Second Story Room
Flames Cut Off Escape. August “Gus” GILKER, 70 years old a junk dealer was suffocated and his body badly burned in a fire at 6 o’clock Friday evening in the E.P. Kern Paint shop, located in the alley in the rear of the Irwin-Overland company’s garage. Mr. GILKER had lived for several years by himself, in the upper room of the shop. Every effort was made by the firemen to get the man in the second story, but they failed as the exterior of the building was a total mass of flames when they arrived. As soon as the fire was under control the firemen went into the building and the body was carried out of the south entrance.
“Hemmed in The Room”
Mr. GILKER was hemmed in the room, with heavy screening at each of the four windows, which made it impossible to escape only by way of going down the stairway. When found he was lying about midway in the room, with his body being toward the door, with his head on the hearth of a cook stove. Just how the fire originated is unknown. The building was a story and a half brick structure and the first floor was used by Mr. Kern, in connection with his business as a paint shop and a storage room for his tools.
“Building in Flames”
The fire was first discovered by Mr. KERN at about 6 o’clock when he finished feeding hid horse which was in an adjoining shed to the shop. He opened the door of the room and flames burst out, forcing him back into the alley. His first thought was of the whereabouts of Mr. GILKER. He rushed to the Irwin garage where the fire alarm was turned in the crew and apparatus of the Nos.1,2,3 and 4 stations responding. Firemen responded to the alarm without any delays and three lines of hose were run from the hydrants in Maine Street, across the vacant lot, used by the Overland company. The No. 2 chemical line was first used, but when the three forceful streams of water were turned on the blaze the fire was checked, but was sometime before it was entirely put out.
“Automoble Causes Delay”
Some little delay was at first experienced, as the hydrant between Third and Fourth in Maine was barred from use, as an automobile was directly in front of it, which had to moved before the hose could be connected. The fire started in the first floor of the building and worked it’s way up the stairway into the roof. There was no ceiling over the second story floor, and the flames made great head way. The lower room contained valuable paints, as well as a large quantity of wall paper and expensive tools, which were destroyed. There was a quantity of rope and painting ladders in the room. The No.3 streamer was used as was No. 1 auto pumping engine. When the fire was first discovered, employees of Irwin-Overland garage put the 50 extinguishers in the garage into service, which checked the blaze to a certain extent until the firemen arrived, which was but a short time.
“Body Taken to FREIBURG’S”
The body was taken to the FREIBURG undertaking establishment in the Freiburg ambulance, where it will be prepared for burial. Judge Ben HECKLE, acting coroner in the absence of Coroner M.J. HALEY, who is confined to his home by illness, will arrange for a coroner’s inquest some time today. Mr. GILKER followed the junk gathering business, and had lived in Quincy for some time. It is understood that he has either a brother or sister in Hannibal, Mo. The building is owned by Harry WOOD, proprietor of the Wood Hotel, Mr. KERN had not been at his shop between 2 o’clock and the time that the fire was discovered. Mr. GILKER was known to have a habit of going to bed about 5 o’clock and it is possible that the was asleep when the smoke entered his room. He probably staggered across the room and fell against the stove.

He had attained a fair competence and was in the midst of prosperity. In his earlier manhood he was a successful teacher.

Decease of Hon. Peter LOTT
Departed this life, at Tebuantepec, Mexico, on the 24th day of March, A. D. 1862, the Hon. Peter LOTT, formerly Judge of the 5th judicial circuit in the State, and for neat twenty years a resident of this city. Judge LOTT was born in the 19th day of March, 1811, at Pemberton, New Jersey, graduated at Princeton College in the year 1829, was married to Miss Elizabeth W. HYER, June 18, 1832. He emigrated West and settled in this place in the year 1835, and continued to reside here until about the year 1854, when he went to California. After spending several years there he returned to this place. He always loved Quincy, and his final separation from it and the comfortable home he had here erected, was, perhaps, the hardest struggle of his life. He sieved in the Mexican war as a Captain in BISSELL’s famous regiment, and was in the battle of Buena Vista; After the war he was elected to the very lucrative and responsible position of clerk of the circuit court of Adams County, and held that office for the term of four years. He held at different periods of his life, various responsible and honorable public offices. That of Judge, clerk of the circuit court, Captain on the Mexican war, and superintendent of the United States mint in San Francisco; or if not superintendent an office of the next grade. And lastly, though he had been a life-long Democrat and devoted follower and friend of Mr.. DOUGLAS, he was appointed by President LINCOLN Consul to Tebuantepec, where he died of congestion of the bowels; and, up to his death, was in the full discharge of the duties of his responsible office. He was accompanied to the place of his late charge by his devoted wife, who was near him to the last. She writes to a friend that, “at ten minutes before 5 o’clock his spirit returned to God, who gave it, and I have a satisfactory hope that he rests in peace. **** I knew his penitence, his faith, and hope. I knew he was in the habit of faithful, fervent prayer.****Gov. AROMDINIO interested himself in procuring his interment, and took charge of the arrangements. All the civil authorities and beat citizens attended the funeral. Thus has departed another of our old time friends and acquaintances
how long believed among us
how much he was loved by his old time friends and associated, all here know.
It is not our province to speak of his faults, whatever they may have been, for none are without faults. Judge LOTT was a man of very great ability
as a public speaker, in voice, manner and gesture, and in the correctness of his language, he had few superiors in this State. As a reader, he was preeminent in this part of the country. His taste in literature, and his appreciation of poetry, was of the highest order. His many friends will long remember him
his enemies, if any he had, may forget him if they choose. Few men that ever lived among them, who were so prominent. has fewer enemies.

James H. LUCE
On the 20th of march, in consequence of the accidental discharge of his gun, Mr. James H. LUCE, a native of Ohio, aged 45 years. He had joined a party of his friends and acquaintances in an excursion to a point about twenty miles from the city, and with a portion of the party was returning, stopping occasionally at places favorable for shooting. It was upon one of these occasions that the accident happened. He lived about thirty minutes, conscious of his approaching end, and expressing regret at leaving his friends so suddenly. Though distant from relatives, he died, as it were, in the arms of a most intimate friend. In the death of Mr. LUCE, Quincy has lost one of its best citizens. He came to Quincy in 1835, and by industry and economy had accumulated a competence, as well as by his unassuming modesty, his correct deportment and strict honesty, he had commanded the respect and esteem of the community, and the love of his most intimate acquaintances. His disposition was mild and amiable, his friendship sincere, his disapproval of the improper tastes habits or character of those whom he chanced to associate was frankly and freely expressed to them alone. He avoided the society of the vicious and dealt only with the honest, in the manner manifesting his appreciation of virtue. he was a true Mason, having been for many years a member of Bodley Lodge No. 1, and for several years its master. The esteem by which he was held by the fraternity was manifested at his Masonic funeral, and the respect of the community was amply exhibited by a concourse of nearly three thousand citizens. His brethren will miss him
they knew him well. An early member of Fire Co. No. 1, he was always prompt and cheerful in the performance of all his duties. The several fire companies turned out in full force to show their appreciation of his promptness and efficiency. No more will the alarm of fire arouse him
no more the calls of a distressed brother find relief from his hands
no more can the widow and orphan look to him for assistance or advice. He rests in peace. *** More about this Accident The Daily Whig Republican Newspaper, Quincy, Illinois, March 24, 1858, page 3.

Quincy Daily Journal, Tuesday, November 18, 1913, Page 8 MISS MANION DIED TODAY Her Life Was Striking Example of Absolute Unselfishness and Quiet Heroism. Miss Margaret J. Manion died at 10:45 o’clock last night at the home of her sister, Mrs. Michael (Anna Manion) Clune, 429 North Twelfth Street. She was 56 years old. “Madge” Manion as she was always known to her relatives and friends was born and raised in Hannibal (Marion County, Missouri). She was a member of a family that was always most highly respected and she herself was esteemed by every one who knew her. The family met with misfortune years ago. The father fell or leaped from the Hannibal bridge and was drowned. There was never any reason known for his suicide, if suicide it was. The mother and her four daughters bravely took up the task of maintaining a home and in this work ‘Madge” being the oldest was foremost. She became a skilled dressmaker. In fact, she learned this trade and worked at it actively long before her father’s death and in the Foley dressmaking parlors, long the fashionable and high-class establishment of its kind, in Hannibal, there was no better modiste than Madge Manion. She worked at the business, devoting her earnings to the support of the family, until two or three years ago, although in the meantime her sisters learned trades, also, and very ably assisted her and her mother, and eventually two of the sisters married and established homes of their own. Then, after her work was almost completed, as it seemed, Madge Manion contracted a cancer, and for two years she had been obliged to accept the kindly offices (offers) of her sisters, and a home with them. They have given her every possible care and attention, but cancer is a disease which is seldom conquered, either by medical skill or loving care. Here in Quincy Miss Manion was not so well known because she was an invalid most of the two years she had resided here, but those who became acquainted with her became warm friends, for her kindly disposition and patience in extreme suffering appealed to every one with whom she came in contact. Besides her mother, Mrs. Mary (Ferguson) Manion, the decedent is survived by three sisters, Mrs. Michael (Anna) Clune and Miss Bina Manion, of this city, and Mrs. James (Sarah) Flynn of (North) Platte, Nebraska. Miss Manion was a member of St. Peter’s Church and of the Hannibal lodge of Knights and Ladies of Security. Funeral arrangements will be announced later. Madge Manion’s life was a striking example of the fact that there are heroes who never see a battlefield, and good women who are never mentioned in the society columns of the newspapers. ***All comments in parenthesis by Great Niece, Gretchen Flynn.

She will be greatly missed among her friends and neighbors. We have lost a dear treasure, but she has gained a home in heaven where all suffering is over.A loving mother true and kind No friend like her on earth will find, God called her home, it was His will, But in our hearts she lingers still For all of us she did her best May God grant her eternal rest. Dear mother, how we miss you As the days are passing by But God is sure to welcome you As you descend on High. The angels, too will play their harps, Upon streets of gold, While in the grave you silent lie, Dear God receives your soul. Suffering is all o’er, Safe with the angels, Happy and blessed.By a friend, Clara JOHNSON.

REDDICK had died suddenly. The girl had been suffering from rheumatism and dropsy since last November.

She was in continual pain, but went to bed as usual Wednesday night. About midnight she woke up with a shriek, got up and tried to dress herself. But her end was near, With an agonizing cry of pain she sank back on the bed and died in a few minutes. The coroner impaneled a jury composed of Dr. P. A. MARKS, John A. HORBELT, Henry GIBSON, Charles BAKER, William SCHAEFER and Fred WESTFIELD, and after hearing the evidence of the parents returned a verdict that death had resulted from rheumatism of the heart.

The “Murder Case”
New Development. We noticed, yesterday, that a more thorough post mortem examination of the body of “Kate RICHARDS” had been made by Drs. WILSON, WATSON, PARSONS, and LEACH. This examination was made at the request of BROWN, who was commimitted to jail for the alleged murder. The result of this examination is now known. It was found that the woman’s neck was not broken! The theory of the prosecution, therefore, falls to the ground. The most probable solution of the mystery is that she died of apoplexy.

Death of Hiram ROGERS
We inadvertently omitted to notice yesterday the death of our old and highly esteemed fellow citizen, Dr. Hiram ROGERS. The following well merited tribute to his memory, we take from the Issue of last evening. Another old citizen has gone from among us. One by one, like the stars at night, the old pioneers of the West go out. Dr. ROGERS came to Quincy when the population of the place numbered but a few hundred, and has been, during the long period that intervened, one of is most active enterprising, useful, and highly respected citizens. Like most others of our oldest citizens, he had prospered with the growth and prosperity of the city. He had held some responsible public positions, having been appointed by President Polk to the office of Receiver of Public Moneys in the land office at this point, having been acting Postmaster, and was at the time of his death Vice President of the First National Bank of Quincy. The intelligence of his death will be received with emotions of the profoundest regret by all who knew them. He died this morning about nine o’clock, after a protracted illness. He leaves a large circle of relatives and acquaintances to mourn his loss.

Death of H. A. ROGERS.
Mr. H. A. ROGERS, a resident of Quincy since 1854, died at his residence yesterday morning of consumption. Mr. ROGERS was well known a one of our prominent and popular citizens. He was for many years a member of the firm of ROGERS and MONTGOMERY, retail druggists, on Hampshire street. but cessed his connection with the firm, about one month since. He had been in failing health for the past several years, but was not concerned in any dangerous condition until a short time ago. Mr. ROGERS was born in Albany, New York in 1832, and was therefore fifty years of age. He came to Quincy in 1854 and has resided here ever since. He was united in marriage to Anna PARIS in 1859. He leaves a wife, and three children Susan A., Fred W., and Rosa.Mr. ROGERS has always been counted as one of our foremost citizens and a thoroughly live and responsible business man. He had many warm friends, both here and in other cities where he was acquainted. His close attention to business, strict honesty, and pleasant, gentlemanly ways, drew to him a large business and enabled him to amass a considerable property, which leaves his family in comfortable circumstances. In connection with thousands of other sorrowing friends the Herald extends its sympathies to the afflicted family in this really and bereavement. Mr. ROGERS in early life became a member of the Masonic fraternity. He was for years a member of Bodley Lodge, of this city, the first, lodge organized in the state. Several years ago he was demitted from the Bodley Lodge and was one of the charter members of Luce Lodge No. 439.His funeral will take place tomorrow (Wednesday) morning at 10 o’clock and will be conducted by the Masons. The five lodges of the city have requested all Masons in the city to attend. *** Note Hiram A. ROGERS

Obit from Quincy Herald Whig, Sunday pg 16 August 31, 1930 Lee ROGERS son former Mayor is dead
Lee ROGERS, member of a prominent family and son of a former Mayor, died Saturday afternoon at 2:20 o’clock in his home, 625 North Fourth street. He had been in ill health some time and had suffered recurrent attacks of indigestion. The attacks increased during the last few days, however, and his death was rather sudden. Mr. ROGERS was born in Quincy July 22, 1859, and lived here all his life with the exception of four years spent in Colorado Springs, where he was an auditor for the Denver and Rio Grande railroad. He was the son of William T. ROGERS, who died in the office of mayor in 1880. Mayor ROGERS won distinction during his regime because he turned his salary as chief executive back to the city to help liquidate municipal debts. Before being elected mayor William T. ROGERS was associated with his brother. E.A. ROGERS, in the manufacture of wagons and Lee ROGERS was bookkeeper for the firm. After the death of his father, the business was continued nine years and Lee ROGERS remained with the company. Later Mr. ROGERS entered the real estate bsui;ness, which he maintained for some time. Recently, however, he had been looking after his personal interests in the city. He is survived by his widow; a daughter, Ruth D. ROGERS, of Jacksonville; three brothers, Dr. Timothy ROGERS, Quincy; Dr. William ROGERS, Granite City, Illinois, and E. A. ROGERS, Fox Lake, Illinois, and a sister, Mrs. Cora R. MONTGOMERY, Quincy. He was a member of the Baptist church.

Mrs. Mary P, ROGERS died suddenly yesterday forenoon shortly after 10 o’clock. She had been in unusually good health until a very few minutes before the fatal attack, and consequently there was universal surprise in the city upon the announcement of the sad event. Even relatives were astonished as well as pained, for upon Thursday a number of them had gathered at her residence and partaken of Thanksgiving dinner, when the hostess expressed herself as feeling unusually well and gave evidence of the fact by marked animation. Mary PEASE ROGERS was born in Brighton, Mass. in 1818. Her father removed to Quincy in 1834, and two years afterwards she was married to the lamented Dr. Hiram ROGERS, who died over twenty years ago. No children blessed the union, and since the death of husband Mrs. ROGERS has devoted herself to the care of needy and suffering humanity. Always manifesting a benevolent, charitable and Christian spirit, she was one of the rounders of the Woodland Home, which has proved a refuge for many a waif and remains a monument of her interest and liberality. But her effects took a much wider range, for she sought out the poor and distressed in all parts of the city, ministering to their wants and furnishing them with necessaries. Her work was distinctively her own, and while she could not conceal from public how much that she did in the way of charity, her uniform modesty prevented several knowledge of the thanks which were showed upon her by the deserving poor for bounty judiciously bestowed. Mrs. ROGERS was also a truly Christian woman. A consistent and conscientious member of the First Baptist church, the congregation owe and grant to her memory praise for liberality which perhaps preserved the church organization for its present usefulness. With a handsome income, one thought little of self, but she was wrapped up in the thought of how much good she could do to those by whom she was surrounded. So to the church, to the home for little ones with which she was identified, to the hospital and to the sick and suffering in their humble dwellings, she was a messenger of substantial cheer and encouragement. Her character was fairly illustrated when, some years ago, her money in bank being jeopardized by its suspension, she declared she had only the regret that it was a fund set apart for the relief of the poor and its loss might occasion them suffering. Happily, however, it was restored its intended use, and this and much more from her purse went too make glad hearts which bear her memory in grateful and tender remembrance. Mrs. ROGERS was a sister of Mr. Nat PEASE and of the late Mrs. John WHEELER. Their descendants will be but a fraction of the genuine mourners in the community, where Mrs. ROGERS was dearly loved for her purity of heart and her abundance of good deeds.

Funeral of Mrs. ROGERS
The funeral of the late Mrs. Mary P. ROGERS took place yesterday from the First Baptist church. There was a very large attendance of members of the congregation and friends of the deceased, and the casket bore an abundance of floral tributes to the worth of this estimable lady. The gathering at the obsequies was a suitable testimonial of the high esteem in which she was held by the community. The services were conducted by the Rev. Dr. WHITING, Rev. Dr. SCHOFIELD, and Rev. R. M. HARRISON, Appropriate and beautiful were these ceremonies. A quartette consisting of Mrs. C.W. KEYES, Miss KESPOHL, Mr. J. W. HEITZ and Mr. I. C. PARKER, rendered effectively “Saints Eternal Rest”, “Jesus, Lover of My Soul,” and “Rest for the Weary,” all favorites of Mrs. ROGERS in her life and in the rendition of which she had frequently participated with Christian spirit and fervor. The pallbearers were Messes. Robert W. GARDNER, William A. RICHARDSON, Charles H. BAGBY, W. V. CHANNON, J. PHIL, Bert E. K. HURLBUT, John H. BROWN, and R.M. NANCE. The funeral cortege, with its long line of carriages conveying citizens who thus paid the last token of respect to one loved and honored, proceeded to Woodland Cemetery, where the burial rites were performed. The remains were tenderly laid to rest with gratitude for noble work performed and confidence that the example she set will make the world in which she moved better for her exemplary life and kindly deeds.

Death of Miss Susie ROGERS
The Carthage Republican, in an extended notice of the death of Miss Susie ROGERS, daughter of the late Dr. Hiram A. ROGERS, of this city says: She was the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hiram ROGERS, and a niece of our former citizen, George J. ROGERS, Esq. now of Warsaw. Her father died some months ago, a victim of consumption, and not long after his demise Susie’s health began to fall also. she being afflicted with the same disease, and from which she died. Susie has often visited here, and was warmly attached to the young people of Carthage. She will be remembered as a bright and interesting young lady, with many amiable traits of character. Those who knew Susie can easily guess with what fortitude she bore her prolonged illness, with all its attendant sufferings. Though but just entering upon the sun shiny pathway of a happy life’s journey, she complained nor feared not when the summons came to turn aside and tread the valley of shadows; that universal highway of mankind at last. And is there one of us who can say aught, but that, was the lengthening shadows of that valley closed around her, she did hear the loving voice of him that had gone before, calling to her from out the darkness and across the swelling tide, to come; and fear not. A mother’s heart upon earth is breaking; yet that mother must know there is joy among the angels of Heaven as they swung the pearly gates ajar, and welcomed back her child to a happy reunion, and to life eternal in the land that is fairer than day.

Heart and Lung Trouble Carry Off One of Quincy’s Pioneer Citizens
Thaddeus M. ROGERS, aged 63 years, one of Quincy’s pioneer citizens passed away suddenly at 7:15 o’clock last evening. His death was wholly unexpected and proved a severe stock to his friends and that means the whole town. Dr. ROBBINS, the attending physician, describes the cause of his death as being edema or pulmonary effusion of the lungs, all of which followed an attack of the grip. About two weeks ago Mr. ROGERS returned from a trip to Chicago. He was not feeling well and still did not consider his condition serious enough to consult a physician. A week ago today his condition grew worse, and he called in Dr. ROBBINS, who found Mr. ROGERS suffering from the grip. Medicine was precribed but Mr. ROGERS felt no alarm over his condition and was careless about taking it. Last Tuesday he was on the streets as usual and few person knew that he was not in his usual good health. However he took ill down town and was compelled to go home in a carriage. He soon recovered on reaching home and was reading and smoking that evening. Yesterday his condition grew worse and Dr. ROBBINS was again called. Dr. ROBBINS remained with him until noon, at which time his condition was growing worse. The doctor noticed immediately on reaching the house, that Mr. ROGERS heart was acting badly. During the afternoon his condition began to improve, but it was only temporary, and shortly after 4 o’clock his family began to realize that he was critically ill. Everything possible was done and Dr. ROBBINS remained at his side almost constantly, but all availed naught and at the hour stated above he breathed his last. Deceased was conscious up to within an hour of his death and seemed to realize that he was dangerously ill. He said to his wife that he feared that he would die suddenly as his father did. His death was calm and peaceful. The family residence is situated at Twenty-second and Spring streets, where the deceased had lived for many years. Mr. ROGERS, was a son of the late Timothy ROGERS, a pioneer settler of Adams county, owner of the Occidental Hotel, the ROGERS wagon factory, and considerable property in both the city and county. Thaddeus M. ROGERS was born in Connecticut, August 20, 1835 and came to this city with his parents three years later. Since then the city has been his home continuously and recently he celebrated his sixtieth anniversary of his arrival here. After receiving an ordinary education in the schools here, Mr. ROGERS was sent to the University of Heidelberg, Germany, where he graduated with high honors. He returned to this city, studied Law and was admitted to the bar. He formed a partnership with H. L. WARREN, but he did not take kindly to the legal business the partnership was dissolved and Mr. WARREN, afterwards went West and was elected a distant judge in Montana. After taking down his sign as lawyer Mr. ROGERS engaged in several commercial pursuits. For years he successfully conducted a printing and binding business on Hampshire street, which of late years has been under management of his sons. He also engaged in the newspaper business at one time, publishing the Daily News, which was consolidated with The Journal in 1889. Since then he has devoted much time to travel. He was a great reader and thinker and could take part in almost any discussion. He had a faculty for remembering nearly everything and he always genial and agreeable in any circle into which he might chance. Being in possession of a robust constitution and fond of research it was only natural that he should become a great traveler. Several years ago, during the world’s fair, he drove to Chicago behind a team of horses. Later he made an overland trip to Florida, having as his guest on that trip Charles U. COLBURN. Just before the breaking out of the Spanish-American War, Mr. ROGERS visited Cuba as a newspaper correspondent and on his return delivered several interesting lectures on Cuba in this and neighboring cities. Being the owner of the St. James Hotel property which had been idle for some months he decided to to into the hotel business which he afterward leased to Hi Lattin. He was a republican and took a deep interest in politics. He served as alderman and for a number of years was the chairman of the county republican committee. He was always affiliated with the republican party, but frequently voted for democratic candidates who had proven themselves worthy of public office and public confidence. In politics and all other matters he was a fair and honorable man and his death is mourned by all. To his widow and children is extended the sympathy of the entire community. Besides the widow he leaves seven children, namely: Walter, Charles, Thaddeus Jr., John, Mrs. WALKER, Misses Ella and Isabella. Mrs WALKER resides at Brookfield, Missouri, and John is attending a Harvard preparatory school. The others are all at home. Mr. ROGERS was a member of the Unitarian church and also of Bodley lodge of Masons. Today’s St. Louis Glode-Democrat says editorially: ” Quincy Illinois loses a valuable citizen by the death of Col T. M. ROGERS. He was a man of unusual culture and intelligence and certain by his Strength of character to be a leader on his community. He was long prominent in the politics of Illinois and in other directions aided the advancement of the state. The manly trails of Col. ROGERS and his lifelong interest in the public welfare give to the announcement of his death the sense of a personal loss to a wide circle.”

He was the picture of health and said that he was well. He had been taking a week’s recreation in Chicago. At that time he was planning to unload his business cares and work, and to take things easy. He wished to travel. He was planning for an easier, pleasanter future. In the midst of these plans death came to him on swift wings. He has laid down his business came forever, and entered into another sphere and phase of life. Mr. ROGERS tried to do, the fair thing with his fellow mortals and future he had no fear. He was a man of kindly instincts and generous impulses. His heart was not the abiding place of bitterness. He did many a kind turn in his busy life to men who needed it and when they needed it; and these will cherish his memory. Thad ROGERS was a genial, companionable man-warm hearted and generous. Take him all in all, he was a manly fellow moral. Peace to his ashes. And may his future to his liking, his contentment and his happiness.

A Prominent Citizen Gone.
Death of Timothy ROGERS at the Occidental Hotel, Sunday Evening. Timothy ROGERS, one of the oldest and best known citizens of Quincy and Adams County, died at his residence, the Occidental Hotel, on Hampshire street, at 7:35 Sunday evening. His death was a surprise to the entire community. It was known that he had been failing for many months, but it was not expected, even by those closest to him, that death would come so soon. The deceased was born in Vernon county, Connecticut, November 15th, 1809. His early life was full of hardships and privation. With nothing but his energy and an ambition to succeed he started when a young man to carve out his future. That energy and a devotion to business finally placed him among the most influential and affluent citizens of Quincy, When a young man he learned the trade of wagon maker, at which he worked for many years after. September 6th, 1832, he was united in marriage with Dorothy BILLINGS, who survives him at Somerville, Connecticut, November 27th, 1838, he and his wife landed in Quincy to make the little town his home. He had nothing but his health and his ability as a mechanic to assist him. His first work was for a wagon maker named BLYTHE. He continued there for two years, when he purchased the business, Mr. BLYTHE retiring. Later the firm of ROGERS and WINN was organized for the manufacture of wagons and plows. The firm continued until 1855, when Mr. ROGERS became the sole owner. He remained in the business until April, 1864, when he was succeeded by his sons.In 1859 he became the owner of the present Occidental Hotel, then known as the Hess house, and has resided there ever seen. Several years later the hotel was given the name Occidental. Under Mr. ROGERS’ management it became a favorite resort for strangers, especially for farmers. While Mr. ROGERS had accumulated a fortune and was able to retire he remained in charge, superintending all the details of the business until the day of his death. He was never more contented than when entertaining the many guests who registered at the hotel daily. For a few years past he conducted a large stock farm in Fall Creek and raised fine beeves for Chicago market. In many respects the deceased was a remarkable man. Up to the time his health began to fail he attended personally to his extensive business interests. He was strict in all his detailings and was governed by ridge business rules. He was a man of strict integrity, and never failed to stand by a promise once given. Outside his business he was affable, enjoyed a joke even at his own expense, and when cares of business were laid aside, liked nothing better than a pleasant evening with his friends. Those who knew him intimately will miss him greatly.The deceased was the father of six children, only two of whom, Thaddeus M., and Edward A., survive. One son, William T. ROGERS, died while Mayor of Quincy in 1880.The funeral services will be held at the Occidental hotel tomorrow afternoon at 3 o’clock to which friends are invited. The burial will occur at a later hour and will be private.

The City in Mourning
Death of Mayor William T. ROGERS Sunday Morning
Close of an Active Life
His Business Operations in Quincy
His Official Career and Personal Traits
William T. ROGERS, mayor of Quincy died Sunday morning after an illness of a few weeks. The announcement of the sad event, although not entirely unexpected, was a surprise to many who hoped and had reason to believe that on Friday and Saturday Mr. ROGERS was in an improved condition; and flags are at half mast, the city offices, station, engine houses and all public building are draped in mourning, while the people add to these manifestations of sorrow exspessions of deep regret. No man in the city perhaps had more personal acquaintances than did Mr. ROGERS, and to all who did not claim his acquaintance he was known by reason of his official position, which brought him into contact with the citizens generally. His death therefore causes bereavement in which the public ahare closely with the family of the deceased. Mr. ROGERS is but the second of Quincy mayors who have died in office, the first being, Mr. Enoch CONYERS, who died of cholera in 1849, a few weeks before the expiration of his term, and who was succeeded by Mr. Samuel HOLMES. Mayor ROGERS, was in many respects a remarkable man. His life has been an exceedingly busy one, industry and indomitateristic of everything he undertook. Born in Folland County, Conn., July 10, 1833, he came to Quincy with his parents in in 1838, so that in reality Quincy is the only place he has at any time called home; and the anxiety and solicitude he manifested in the city’s welfare were none the less apparent than was the close attention he paid to his private affairs, in all of which he was eminently successful. He was the head of the extensive wagon and plow manufacturing firm of W. T. & M. A. ROGERS, and conducted the business with skill, prudence and capacity, making the establishment at this time one of the most important institutions of the kind in the country. Although at no time seeking political preferment, the manner in which he attended to his individual interests warranted confidence that he was fitted to properly manage municipal affairs, and his services for the public were respectly sought by his party friends. He was elected a member of the city council from the First ward in 1876 by the largest majority over given for a candidate in that precinct, and served his term of two years with integrity and ability. In the spring of 1878 heas induced to run for Mayor on the republican ticket, and was elected by over 800 majority, and in 1876 he was reelected by even a larger vote. In neither case, however, was Mr. ROGERS a mere party candidate. Chosen at time when strict economy in the management of the city had become imperatively necessary, he faithfully carried out the pledge to the people to put a stop to extravagant and useless expenditures. It may be said that the firm position taken and maintained by the mayor against all unnecessary outlays of money is due the fact that the city for the coming fiscal year will have ample means for current expenses. Mr. ROGERS was some times since strongly urged to again be a candidate for mayor, but declined upon the advise if his physician, and personally expressed the belief that labors of the campaigns had impaired his health, At a recent meeting of the city council Mayor ROGERS was compelled to leave the chamber and go home, and immediately thereafter was made the announcement that he was seriously ill. Through even the delirium which attended the attack he appeared to be more concerned about the city’s affairs than about his own condition, and invariably manifested a deep interest in the settlement of important questions then before the council. Personally Mayor ROGERS was a genial, sociable gentleman, hospitable to his friends, and public spirited. He was connected with almost every movement of a general character in the city, being especially active as a member of the fair association and of the board of commerce, and in securing favorable action by the general government in the survey and improvement of the river and bay. He studied closely the needs of Quincy, and in office and out of office he was at all times ready and willing to assist by every means in his power to spread her fame and foster her material interests. Mr. ROGERS was married in 1856 to Miss Catherine W. MURRAY, the results of their union being six children, all of whom survive him. He took a peculiar interest in every one of his family name, and for personal gravitation had prepared a genealogy of every person named ROGERS or ROGER of whom he could hear in this country, tracing his own ancestry with minuteness, and accumulating a mass of valuable information which in condensed form filled hundreds of pages of manuscript. It was a week upon which he spent much time and care, and one which brought him into personal correspondence with persons by the name of ROGERS in nearly every state in the Union. In conversation concerning it he did not expect to complete the records, as to do so would require more attention than he could give the matter, but he hoped it would be preserved for the benefit of all who could make use of it in the future. Mayor ROGERS was widely and favorably known throughout the surrounding country as well as in city. Though not yet 47 years of age, his business had given him an acquaintance in the towns of the west which is acquired but few men in a city the size of Quincy. All who knew him will regret to hear of his death, and will bear testimony to the straightforward, honorable character he exhibited in business transaction; and they will also unite with the citizens of Quincy in sympathizing with the bereaved family and families. A special meeting of the city council was held yesterday, when committees on resolutions and arrangements for the funeral were appointed. Another meeting will be held tomorrow morning. It is expected that the obsequies will be attended by the city government in a body, the police and fire departments, the military, and probably civic societies. The funeral occurs Wednesday at 2 o’clock from the Vermont Street Baptist church.

Death of Mayor ROGERS
The announcement of the death of Mayor. ROGERS yesterday was not wholly unexpected by the public, although for a day or two previous some hope of his recovery had been entertained. As a resident of the city, and as prominently identified with its business interests, Mr. ROGERS has been known to our citizens for many years past; but for the last four years he has also ben prominent in public affairs,-two years as a member of the common council, and for the last two years as Mayor of the city. Concerning his career as a private Citizen we can say nothing that would add. aught to the information already possessed by the community. It is sufficient to observe, upon this point, that for many years Mr. ROGERS has been known to are citizens as a enterprising an successful business man. Neither indeed can we say anything not already known concerning the career of Mr. ROGERS as a public official; but when a man in a official position has constantly exerted himself in a effort to faithfully and honestly discharge the responsibilities imposed upon him, it is doe alike to the living and to the dead that his public services should be recognized and acknowledged. Probably the man never lived who could so discharge the duties of a responsible public office as to Command the unqualified approval of all classes of citizens. Nor is it at all likely that any such man will live; because men always will differ, as they have always have differed in there judgement about matters of public concern. But when it is evident that a man in public position is endeavoring to discharge his responsibilities with efficiency, and with a view solely to the public advantage, however men may differ in option with respect to the utility of his aims, all will you night in according tribute to the honesty of his intentions. So with Mr. ROGERS: while all were not agreed as to the wisdom of the policy he attempted to carry out,
more particularly with regard to the management of the municipal finances, know one ever pretended to question the honestly of his motives or the earnestness of his efforts. It was evident, moreover, that he had the public intrusts very seriously at heart. It is doubtful, indeed, whether a mayor of this city, or any other, ever devoted him self more assiduously to the discharge of his public duties; in so much that during his last illness, and his last moment, the affairs of the city seemed to be weighing constantly and heavily upon his mind. From the outset of his administration as mayor of the city he seemed to be actuated by and earnest desire to reduce the municipal indebtedness and to maintain uninspired the finical honors and integrity of the city; and whatever opposition some particulars of his policy may have met with, his efforts to promote the public interests ought, as they will, belong remembered to credit and honor. In short, mayor ROGERS will always be remember as a honest and faithful public officer; and to leave such a memory behind him is to leave that which many men who have figured in a more conspicuous career were not able to bequeath to those who that survived them.

Death of John SCHWAB
Mr. John SCHWAB, a well known citizen of Quincy, died very suddenly at the residence of his son, Casper J. SCHWAB, 322 Hampshire street, at an early hour yesterday morning. Mr. SCHWAB was about the shop during the evening until about 10:30, when he retired to his room. About two hours afterwards his room-mate, a young man employed in the shop, joined him. In about an hour afterwards he heard a deep groan from Mr. SCHWAB, and upon calling his name met with no answer. He at once called Mr. Casper SCHWAB, who hastened to his father’s bedside, only to find a corpse. Coroner MILLER was notified and , after impaneling a jury, held as inquest, when a verdict that the deceased came to his death from epilepsy. It appears that Mr. SCHWAB has had several of these spells before, especially since the death of his son, who drowned in the river some time ago, but no one ever thought they would result in anything serious. The deceased was an old resident to the city and was well known to every one. The funeral will take place at the residence this afternoon.

Death Came Suddenly.
Herman VENGHAUS a Victim of Apoplexy.
Died at the Home of W. O. POWELL, in Gilmer Township Thursday Night.
Herman VENGHAUS, aged 43, a resident of Quincy, died of apoplexy during Thursday night at the home of W. O. POWELL, in Gilmer Township, about ten miles out of the city. VENGHAUS left here Thursday afternoon with Mr. POWELL, who had engaged him to go to work on his farm. He was apparently in good health, and made no complaint whatever of not feeling well. He told Mr. POWELL that he had rheumatism, and was laid up with it for a time, but at present was all right. They arrived at the farm about 7:30. VENGHAUS ate a light supper and retired about 8:30. That was the last Mr. POWELL saw of him alive. At 5 o’clock next morning the breakfast bell was sounded but VENGHAUS did not respond, and so Fred STARMAN, the hired man, was sent to his room to awaken him. STARMAN shook him, and then discovered that VENGHAUS was dead. He notified Mr. POWELL at once, and the latter called in Henry THESEN, a neighbor, and together they went to the room and found what STARMAN had told them was true. STARMAN occupied the same room with VENGHAUS, and thought he heard him groan once during the night, about 3 o’clock, but supposed it was a snore. Coroner HASELWOOD went out yesterday and held an inquest. The verdict of the jury was Apoplexy, and a compilation of Chronic rheumatism. VENGHAUS was twice married, his second wife living on the South Side and apart from him. He leaves four children, two by his first, and two by his second wife. Remains were brought to Quincy for burial by Undertaker Freiburg. **Note Herman VENGHAUS died July 8, 1898. Obit from another

Death of Judge WILLIAMS
The Hon. Archibald WILLIAMS. of this city, died this (Monday) morning at 6 o’clock, at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. C. H. MORTON, on Sixth street. He has been ill for several weeks, but it was not until within a few days that his many friends gave up all hope of his recovery. His eminent abilities and long identification with the interests and politics of Quincy and Illinois deserve a better notice than we can prepare today, which must be our excuse for the omission.
Since writing the above the following has been handed us by one who has known Judge WILLIAMS ling and intimately. We have lost a dear friend, and the Bar one of its brightest ornaments. There were few better lawyers than Archibald WILLIAMS.
He was not a quick man, but his powers of analysis were unsurpassed. He thought with great clearness, and while not eloquent in the usual acceptation of that word, few could withstand the power of his reasoning. What he knew was always well and clearly known, and well and clearly told. Honest, generous, kind-hearted to a fault, but every retiring and modest, none knew him well, that did not love him. The younger members of the Bar found in him always a kind friend and teacher; the older men of the profession found him an antagonist worthy of the skill of the best of the Bar. Judge WILLIAMS was a self-educated, self-made man, and ever tried to improve his mental powers. When Quincy was a mere village, in the year 1829, he settled here, and commenced the practice of the law. He was afterward representative at various times in both branches of the Illinois Legislature, and was a distinguished member of the Constitutional Convention 1847. States Attorney for the District of Illinois, and served in that capacity with great ability until the end of Mr. FILLMORE’s administration. A few days after the inauguration of Mr. LINCOLN as President, Mr. WILLIAMS, without solicitation on his part, and greatly to his surprise, was appointed United States District Judge for the State and District of Kansas Union. He accepted the position and removed to Topeka, Kansas, in which place he has resided since the summer of 1861. Of feeble frame, his overtasked mind overcame his bodily strength, and he passed away calmly, in the vigor of his mental powers. We have loss

he was gained.

Another Old Settler Passed Away
The Carthage Gazette contains a long obituary notice of John Wesley WILLIAMS, of Hancock county, who died on the 12th inst. at the age of seventy-seven years. This is another of the honored pioneers of this county who has sunk to rest after a long life radiant with usefulness and honor. He was, we believe, older than his two brothers, Robert, a successful and respected lawyer who died here about the year 1840, and Judge Archy WILLIAMS, so well known to all as one of the ablest jurists of the land and one of the noblest hearted men of whom Illinois can boast. Judge Wesley WILLIAMS was a native of Lincoln County, Kentucky.

On the organization of that county 1829, he was made Clerk of the County Commissioner’s Court and held this office until 1837. He was Clerk of the Circuit from 1829 until 1840, and Probate Judge from 1830 to 1840, and also Recorder of Deeds during the same period, than holding for the first ten or twelve years all the clerical offices in the county. Since 1840 his life has been that of a private citizen, and no man within the bounds of an extensive acquaintance held more fully the confidence and respect of the community, and was more generally honored for his judgment and integrity. “For some time past his health has been visibly declining, and although he did not seem to be afflicted with any particular disease, yet it was evident that he was gradually passing away. When death that he was gradually passing away. When death came it was not unexpected, although at the moment when if appeared there was no prevention that it was so near. He sank to rest without a groan or struggle. Mr. WILLIAMS, for nearly fifty years, was a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and in his life and deportment he will illustrated the beauty of a Christian character.

Death of Isaac O. WOODRUFF
The death of Mr. Isaac O. WOODRUFF, at his residence in this city, on Saturday morning last, breaks another of the few living links that reach back to our village history. One by one are our pioneers sinking from sight until scarce any remain. Mr. WOODRUFF was born in New York City in May 1813, emigrated to Illinois in 1836, landing in Quincy. After a few month’s stay he went back to New York, and after marrying the estimable lady who survives him, he returned in the fall of that year to make Quincy his permanent home. He first engaged in merchandising, but subsequently spent some time as Clerk and Owner of a river steamer, and was still later associated with Messrs. FLAG and SAVAGE in the banking business holding the position of Cashier. A thoroughly educated business man and one of the few among our earlier settlers who were fortunate in the possession of capital, he early acquired and has held for over a third of a century a business prominence and a conspicuous identification with public affairs. He has been connected in various capacities with our town and city government, and in 1861 was elected to the mayoralty. In the last year his constitution has been enfeebly by paralytic symptoms, and a violent attack of Cholera Morbus found him too weak to resist.Few men have enjoyed a more general and favorable acquaintance in our community, where his winning personal traits and his unusual business skill have secure from those who have here known him long of lately more of kind and generous memory than will be associated with his name.
