Died Fried At His Home Near Dulaney After Long Illness of Asthma
Mr. O.O. Rich, aged 63 years, died at his home, near Dulaney, last Friday at 12"300 o'clock.
He had been a sufferer from asthma for many years, and at times was in critical condition. About four years ago he was confined to his bed and room for several months and it was thought then that he would never be able to leave his room again, but he regained his health to the extend that he was able to leave the house and look after the duties of his farm, and up to four weeks ago made frequent visits to Princeton.
Mr Rich was born and reared in the home where he resided all his life, never moving. He was twice married, the first time to Miss Harriett Agnes Kinsolving and the second to Miss Malisa Young.
He was a good, Christian gentleman and was a member of the Saratoga Methodist church.
His funeral was preached Saturday by Rev. Crowe, pastor of Saratoga church, after which his remains were laid to rest in the old Cash grave yard. The following children are left to share the grief of their mother; Tillman, of Austin, Texas, Sam and Robert, of Shawnee, O.T., Henry, Madison, Pierce and William, of Princeton, Mrs John Sells, of Crider, and Charlie Mary, Alva, Young and Jesse, of Dulaney.
