OBITUARY

Joseph Lemon was born in Columbia Co, Penn, on Mar 24, 1847. He came to Mercer Co, Ill, when only 9 years old where he steadily resided till his death. When the call for volunteers was made in 1861, he was among the first to offer his services in defense of his country. He served bravely and honorably in the union army for 18 months. As a result of disease contracted in the service he never again became strong or rugged in health. He was married April 13, 1870 to Miss Elizabeth Johnston. To this union were born the following children, all of whom survive him: John W, Thomas Lundy, Mrs Mary Bonynge, Etta May, Charlotte J, Sarah Ann, Matilda and Lulu. His death occurred at about one o'clock, Monday afternoon, May 15, 1899. The funeral was held Tuesday at noon at the PreEmption M E church, his pastor, Rev D T Robertson of the Hamlet and Perryton Presbyterian churches, officiating. The burial was in the PreEmption cemetery. The sympathy of the entire community is extended to the sorely bereaved family.

(Aledo Democrat)

The shocking intelligence of a suicide in Perryton township reached Aledo Monday forenoon. About 9 o'clock that morning, Joseph P Lemon, who lived about a mile north of the Wm McHard farm, in Perryton, shot himself with a gun. He was in the hallway of the upstairs of his home at the time, and sitting down on the floor, with the muzzle of the gun pointed at his heart, pulled the trigger it is supposed with one foot. The aim was not correct, as the charge did not strike his heart, but instead tore a great hole in his side, He lingered for about two hours, then died. Mr Lemon was not in his right mind at the time. His mental condition had been bad for a number of years, and at one time he was in an insane asylum for some time. He had been on a decline again since last fall. Assistant Coroner, J Mac Larrance, happened to be in Aledo when word came of the suicide. The inquest was held Monday afternoon, the facts elicited being substautially as above. The jury returned a verdict as below: "We, the jury, find that Joseph Lemon came to his death by a gunshot would inflicted by himself while in an insane condition on the 15th day of May, 1899.
