THE WESTERN STAR, 23 November 1895
Obituary of SAMUEL RENFROW
Samuel Renfrow, son of Edmon Renfrow, of Avilla township, died at his home Wednesday noon, November 20th, 1895, of typhoid fever. The young
man was aged about 18 years, and had been ill about three weeks. He leaves a father and mother and sisters and brothers to mourn his untimely death. Shortly after he was taken ill, Samuel expressed the belief that he would never recover.

Death has no respect. He cuts down with his keen sickle those who are young with every prospect of happiness before them as well as the old who have finished the race.

Thursday the funeral took place from the family residence at 10 o'clock a.m. Rev. A. Burrell, conducting the funeral services. The remains were laid away in the Avilla cemetery.
