  Uncle Jas. Kellerman died at his home in the west part of town Friday morning, December 1st at 1:12 o’clock, and was buried in the cemetery at Cherry Mound Saturday afternoon.

  Mr. Kellerman was in failing health for several months, mostly due to his advanced age, he being nearly 74 years old.  Early last week he became worse, and it was then evident that the end was near.  He was born in Bedford county, Pa., and in 1854 married Mary Ann May, and to this union eight children were born.  In 1862 he enlisted in his country’s cause and served under Capt. May three years.  In 1873 he married Carrie Reihl who still survives.  To this union three sons, Charles, James and Jesse were born.

  Mr. Kellerman and family have resided here in the country north of town a number of years.  He was a good citizen and neighbor, a kind, loving husband and parent, and was always held in the highest esteem.  Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Poole, of the U. B. church.  The bereaved family and friends have the sympathy of all.
