5 "Bud D. Renfro, one of the best-known farmers and respected residents of Oakwood Township, died at the St. Elizabeth Hospital in this City yesterday morning, Oct. 24, 1919, following a long and severe illness with sarcoma of the head. Death, which occurred at 7:45 o'clock, came as a welcome relief to more than four months of intense suffering. Mr. Renfro was removed to the local hospital for treatment three weeks ago.
Bud D. Renfro was a native of Kentucky, and was born June 5, 1872. He came to this state when a young man, and for the past 11 years had resided on a farm on rural route 3, north of Oakwood. He was a successful farmer and a good citizen, and the news of his death, while not unexpected, came as a distinct shock to his many friends throughout the community in which he lived.

The deceased is survived by his wife, Mrs. Lillian Renfro, one daughter, Mrs. Mae Davis, of Fairmount, and one son, Virgil, who resides at home. He also leaves three brothers, Joseph, Thaddeus and Charles Renfro, who resides [sic] in Kentucky.

The body was removed from the hospital to the Callahan and Callahan undertaking establishment and prepared for burial, and this afternoon will be taken to the late home, where the funeral services will be held Monday morning at 10 o'clock. The interment will be made in Springhill Cemetery, this City. Mr. Renfro was a member of the Masonic and I.O.O.F. orders, and the Oakwood lodges probably will attend the services in a body, and have charge of the services at the grave."

9 "William Cessna Taken Suddenly
Well Known Landowner of Homer Victim of Pneumonia

Homer, Ill. May 25.—William Cessna died at his home here at 8:10 o'clock this morning after an illness since last Thursday from pneumonia. The end had been expected, but it came sooner than was anticipated, Mr. Cessna passing very suddenly. His illness rendered him somewhat delirious, and he refused to stay in bed. He was sitting in a chair and asked to be put in bed. He then took some medicine and died without a struggle.

The decedent was born November 7, 1822, in Medford County, Pennsylvania. His father was Evan Cessna. On May 18, 1850, the son married Sarah Jane Hawkins in Stark County, O. This union brought five children, one of whom, Mrs. Abe Smith, died in Ohio about twenty years ago. The surviving children are: John W. Cessna of Chanute, Kas., Sarah Amelia, wife of Adam Yeazel of north of Homer; Martha Ellen, wife of Marion Tibbetts of this place and William L. D. Cessna of Adrian, Mich.

For several years after his marriage the decedent followed his trade as a brick and stone mason in Mahoning County, O. In 1856 he moved to Marshall County, Ind., and in 1875 he came to Vermilion County and purchased land. He resided in that country until three years ago, when he divided all except 240 acres of his land among his children and moved to Homer, where he purchased the late home on Coffeen and Southeast Street. His land at that time amounted to 1,016 acres.

Mrs. Cessna died in 1864 and Mr. Coffeen married Mrs. Lucina Melser on January 29, 1865. The second wife and three children survive, as follows: Rosa I., wife of H. H. Price; Charles M. Cessna, and Mary M., wife of Mortimer Current of Danville.

The decedent had never been a member of any church or fraternal organization except the I. O. O. F., and his membership in that order was dropped a number of years ago.
The funeral will be held at 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon from the home, Rev. W. D. Fairchilds, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church, preaching. Interment will be at the G.A.R. cemetery." - The Champaign County News, Wednesday, May 27, 1908, page 2 (Transcribed by the Homer Historical Society)

10 $1,600 Is Missing.
Mary Sivey Had That Amount Before She Died.
Sewed Up In Mattress.
Was There Thirteen Days Before She Passed Away – Heirs are Investigating the Case.
There is something of a mystery surrounding the disappearance of $1,633 from the estate of the late Mrs. Mary Sivey, the aged woman who died at her home on the north side on the 12th day of last month.
It is claimed that the money was taken from the mattress upon which she died sometimes shortly before she died or directly thereafter. At any rate the money was there several days previous to her death and it is claimed that afterwards it suddenly disappeared. The original amount was $1,783, so the story goes, and when it was looked for after her death there was but $150 left. The case is being investigated and there may be some arrests or civil proceedings instituted by the administrator when one is appointed.
It was not generally known that Mrs. Sivey was possessed of much of the world’s good, but J.R. Sivey, one of the heirs to the estate, who is up from Pittsburg investigating the matter gives out the statement that his mother had a large amount of money. According to his story she had $1,783 secreted in the mattress of her bed and that it was sewed up securely so that it would have been impossible for any common burglar to have stolen it. He is authority for the statement that the money was there thirteen days before his aged mother died and that afterwards it suddenly disappeared. That was the last he and other member of the family saw of the roll of greenbacks, the money all being in bills of small denominations, the largest said to be $20. He also says that he and three of his brothers, C.M., R.C. and Scott Sivey saw the money in the mattress when they realized that their mother could not live, and that it was replaced in the same position that it was when found. On the same day of the funeral he says, they went to look after the personal effects and the money and discovered to their surprise that all by $150 of the money had been taken. He says he has his suspicions but in the absence of any proof he cannot make any direct charges. The pocket book in which the money was secreted was found in the loft of the house where she died.
The deceased had nine children and all of them will come in for a share of the estate when it is divided they were up in Judge Cheney’s office last evening preparing the proofs of claims and making ready to apply for the appointment of an administrator of the small estate, and the matter of the missing money will be investigated.
