Obituary of WILLIAM V. WOOD
Death of an Old Citizen

William V. Wood, an old resident of this county, died of inflammation of the bowels on Thursday, July
19th. His sickness was of short duration, and just a few days prior to his death he returned from a
pleasure trip to Minneapolis and other northern cities.
His funeral occurred on Sunday morning and was conducted under the direction of the I.O.O.F. No. 129, of this city, and was very largely attended. Rev. A. J. Bixler, of the Methodist Episcopal church, officiated,
the Coyote club furnishing the music. The remains were buried in the Larned cemetery.

Mr. Wood was a native of Orange county, New York, and was born December 19th, 1846, and at the time of his death was in the forty-sixth year of his life. He has resided in this county since 1878 and was one of
Pawnee county’s most progressive and intelligent farmers. He leaves a wife and two young children – a boy and girl – to mourn his death. William V. Wood was well known throughout the county and was held in high esteem by all who knew him.
