Obituary of DAVID TURNER
David Turner Dead - The many friends of the Turner family in this city (Clyde KS) were surprised Monday to hear of the death of David Turner, which occurred at his home in Anadarka, OK, Monday August1, 1904 after a short illness.

David Turner was for years a resident of Clyde and was one of its most progressive citizens. He was a contractor and builder of great ability and most of the buildings in this town and most of the brick sidewalks were built under his supervision. He held many important elective positions such as councilman, street commissioner, etc. He was a member of the following lodges: A.F.&A.M., R.A.M., L.&S.M., K.T., A.A.O.N.M.S., O.E.S., M.W.A., A.O.U.W.,K. of P., and Triple Tie.

David Turner Jr. was born May 4, 1849 at Pleasance, Parish of Spott, Haddingtonshire, Scotland.

He was married to Miis Byancy Bagley at Concordia KS July 1, 1873. To this union was born five children, four of who are living: William D. Turner, Cora E. Turner, Mrs. John Ward, and Mrs. Geo. Ford all of Anadarka, OK.

The remains were shipped here Wednesday morning. The funeral services were held at the home of the aged mother at 2:30 PM conducted by the Masonic Lodge of Clyde, assisted by the Knights Templars of Concordia, after which the remains were laid to rest in Mt. Hope Cemetery.

The deceased was very popular and had a large acquaintance over the county. Many of his old friends quit their work at the desk, behind the counter and in the field to be present at his funeral.

The Republican with a host of friends extends sympathy to the bereaved family in this dark hour of sorrow - the loss of a father and husband.
