Obituary of HENRY PIERATT
DEATH OF HENRY PIERATT.

After an illness of just one week, Henry Pieratt died a few minutes past 12 o'clock on last Monday night at his home in this city. On Monday of last week he was apparently in good health, attending to his duties as
dray man in his usual prompt and cheerful manner. On Tuesday morning he was unable to resume work, a severe abdominal pain causing him to take to his bed. The attending physician pronounced the aliment to be acute appendicitis. An operation was decided upon and was performed by Drs. Harrison and Holcomb late Friday afternoon. The operation revealed a condition of the system even more serious than had been anticipated, and it was quite evident that recovery was impossible. He lingered in a weak but conscious condition for over three days.

Deceased was a native of Indiana In about 1906, he moved with his parents to Beaver county, Oklahoma. On December 21, 1906, he was married to Miss Myrtle Lacy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Cole, of this city. To this union was born two children. Helen, nearly 3 years old and Charley Cole, 7 months old, both of whom survive. Mr. and Mrs. Pieratt moved about a year ago from their farm near Gate, Okla., to this city. Mr. Pieratt owned and operated a dray line here and was doing well. He was attentive to business, always obliging and was well liked by all. His age at the time of his death was, 41 years, 6 months and 19 days.

Funeral services were conducted at the Christian church at 3 o'clock p.m. on Tuesday. Evangelist Nathaniel Jacks being in charge. The sermon, the music and the entire service were appropriate and impressive. The
Odd Fellows lodge, of which order the deceased was a member, attended as a body. Interment was made in the Coldwater cemetery.
