THE WESTERN STAR, 16 June 1916
Obituary of CHAS. L. HOLT

Chas. L. Holt, who was a well known Comanche-co. citizen, died at 7:50 a.m. on last Monday, June 12, at his home in this city, after an illness of about a week, during which time he was suffering from what was either
cancer or ulcers of the rectal cavity. So intense was his suffering that, for 48 hours before his death it was necessary to keep him completely under the influence of opiates. He had been in failing health for some time, but had been able to be about his work most of the time.

Mr. Holt was born in Scotland-co., Mo., on January 20, 1852. At the time of his death his age was 64 years, 4 months and 23 days. In the early 80's Mr. Holt came to Kansas, settling in this county on a claim about 6
miles north of Protection. He thus became one of the pioneer settlers of the county. In November, 1894, in this city, he was united in marriage with Miss Nellie Holland, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Holland. Mrs. Holt died in this city on March 17, 1914. No children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Holt.

Deceased was a man of many good impulses, and during all his adult life, was a hard working and dependable citizen. Mrs. W. I. Brown of this city
is his sister.

Funeral services were held in the M. E. church at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, the pastor, Rev. R. W. Wyrick, being in charge. In his youth, Mr. Holt became a member of the Baptist church.

Interment was made by the side of the wife in the Coldwater cemetery.
