Note: DEATHS

DEATHS HICKS - Sadie, daughter of Thomas L and Mary Ann Johnston, was born in the town of Perryton, Mercer county, Illinois, on April 5, 1875, and past away at her home near Preemption at 11:30 pm, on Tuesday, April 4, lacking less than one hour of having lived to see her 41st birthday. Her death was caused by pneumonia from which she had suffered only a few days. On Feb 8, 1899, she was united in marriage to James H Hicks of Preemption and to their union were born three children - Leroy now aged 15, Mary aged nine and Luella aged three years. Baptized and confirmed in girlhood, she remained thru life a communicant and faithful worker in St John's Episcopal Church. Besides the grieving husband and children, she is survived by a brother - Frank Johnston of Cedar Rapids, Iowa - and three sisters - Mrs Samuel Hicks of Preemption and Mrs Carrie Gauley and Miss Mary Johnston - just back from Los Angeles, Calif. There are also a number of nephews and nieces. Her parents, two brothers and one sister preceded her to the better land. By her death the Church has lost a faithful and active member as she was always ready to lend a hand in every good cause. The neighborhood has lost a kind and obliging friend as she had a pleasant smile for all and was quick to offer aid and good advice to those in need. But we mourn not as those who have no hope. Her last works, "I'm going to heaven; I'm going to heaven; won't you come with me?" were almost a prayer. Funeral services were conducted Sunday noon at St John's Church by Rector Dean Dawson and were attended by one of the largest crowds ever assembled for such a purpose in Preemption. Music was rendered by members of Trinity Church choir, Rock Island, assisted by St John's Church choir. The body was tenderly borne to its grave in Preemption cemetery by six of the nephews - Arthur and Elmer Damp, Clarence and Edward Hicks, Roland Bowes and Thomas Johnston. Among those from a distance present at the funeral were Frank L Johnston, wife and son Thomas of Cedar Rapids; Mrs W F Allen, Mrs David McKee, Thomas Hicks and wife, Samuel Hall and wife, W H Hicks and son Clarence and J C Johnston of Montezuma; Mrs Murry Kraft of Brooklyn, Iowa; and Mr and Mrs L Hammond of Davenport.
