THE WESTERN STAR, 11 March 1918
Obituary of CORBIN A. McNEILL
DEATH OF C. A. MCNEILL

C. A. McNeill, who was injured in an automobile wreck four miles south of this city on the evening of February 16, died at 7 o'clock a.m. on last Wednesday, February 27 at his home in this city. Funeral services were conducted at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday at the residence and were in charge of Rev. A. G. Alexander of the Presbyterian church. On Thursday the body was taken to Cambridge, Kans., where interment will be made today.

Corbin A. McNeill was born in Cherokee-co., Kans., on March 19, 1870 and was therefore, 47 years, 11 months and 11 days old at the time of his death. In the year 1875 the family moved to Cambridge, Cowley-co., Kans., where they lived for some time. In August, 1894, in Pine Bluff, Ark., Mr. McNeill was united in marriage with Mrs. Jesse Pennington. Ten years ago Mr. and Mrs. McNeill moved to near Gracemont, Okla., and continued to live there until about three years ago when they moved to a claim in Woods-co., Okla., about 25 miles south of this city. Recently Mr. McNeill acquired possession of a tract of land in the southwest part of this county and had begun to make improvements thereon. Last fall the family moved to this city so that the children might have the benefit of our public schools.

Deceased was a man of firm convictions and always found on the side of right on all moral questions. His good habits of living had much to do with the preservation of his fine physical condition all through his life. To all he was kind and considerate and his honesty and fairness were never questioned. His death leaves a family bereft of a devoted husband and father. He is survived by his wife and by four children - Carl, aged 20, Henrietta, aged 18, Marie, aged 13, and George, aged 11. His sister, Mrs. Chas. Marsh, of Memphis, Tenn., a trained nurse was present with him during nearly all of the time since the accident happened. A step daughter, Mrs. Floyd Myers, and family, of Cass-co., Nebraska, were also present at the time of Mr. McNeill's death.
