Mrs. W. H. Craig Dies at Taylorville

for many years, died suddenly in Taylorville Thursday morning
following a stroke of apoplexy while on her way from the B. and O.
passenger station to the home of her daughter, Mrs. W. H. Watts.
Mrs. Craig had just arrived in Taylorville just a few minutes before
and was met at the depot by her son-in-law, W. H. Watts, at whose home
she had planned to spend the day, when a short distance from the
station, she complained of her head and leaning on Mr. Watts' arm
began to sink away. She was taken to the nearest house where a
physician was called, but it was too late to be of any assistance,
Mrs. Craig passed away about a half hour later.
Undertaker C. A. R. Snyder was summoned to care for the body and upon
notifying the corner of the sudden death, the body was removed to the
house.
Ellen Rebecca Wood, daughter of Brewer A. and Rebecca Wood was born in

Two sons preceded her in death, one in infancy and the other in young
