David Arledge, who formerly lived in Freeport, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Wid. Raymond, at Winslow, Monday night. Stomach trouble was the cause of his demise. The deceased leaves a wife and four daughters. The daughters are Mrs. Wid. Raymond, Mrs. John Gould, both of Winslow; Mrs. Bert Lattig of Freeport; Mrs. Maggie Eisenhoot (Issenhuth), of S. Dakota. Mr. Arledge was a brother of Mrs. J. W. VanMatre of this place. The funeral was held Thursday afternoon at 1 o'clock at the house. After a short service the remains were taken to Mt. Pleasant for interment. Mr. Arledge was a member of John A. David post, of Freeport, and the G. A. R. had charge of the services. Undertaker A. C. Ebel had charge of the funeral. Obituary probably from the "Orangeville Courier" Stephenson Co., IL. This is my husband's g-grandfather.
