Sam Embry Dead
Well Known Citizen of Herndon a Victim of Consumption
Col. Samuel F. Embry, died of consumption last Monday evening, at his home near Herndon. He had been in a declining condition for some months and his death did not come unexpectedly. Col. Embry was 53 years of age and had long been one of the most prominent citizens of South Christian. Until recently his home was at Howell, but he was widely known in all portions of the county, and had many warm friends in this city. In fact he had moe than a local reputation, as he gained a State reputation some years ago as a lecturer for the Keeley Institute, at Dwight, Illinois. He was a man of strong intellect, wide information and possessed a most retentive memory. He was a fluent conversationalist and a close student of the world's progress. For many years he taught school and stood high as a teacher. He was under all circumstances a true and loyal Democrat. Col. Embry was a widower and leaves two children, and other relatives. One of his brothers, Mr. W. E. Embry, lives in Florida, and another, Mr. G. W. Embry, at Howell. The funeral services were held Tuesday and the interment took place at Howell.
