Carbondale Illinois
July 17, 2003
[Note: SSDI has Lena Clover born 3 October 1901, died 29 April 2007, SS issued IL, Last Residence Jackson County, Illinois.] 
CARBONDALE - Sitting among her fellow residents at the Carbondale Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, 101-year-old Lena Clover stood out Tuesday. On top of her head rested a crown glittering with jewels because she was named Queen for the Day. Clover was the first to receive the honor that began this month under the direction of Julia McQueen, the new activities director at the facility.
        "She is the kindest and most wonderful person I know," McQueen said. "She told me she was too old to be a queen, but I said 'you are the most beautiful person I know."       
        McQueen said she came up with the monthly honor because residents always enjoyed the crowning of a Valentine's Day queen. "I thought that we should do it every month." She said next month a king will be chosen and that the selection will alternate every month thereafter between kings and queens.
        Clover was treated all day long to special care and was waited on hand and foot by aides at the facility.   
Clover was born on Oct. 3, 1901, in rural Jackson County on a small farm west of Pomona near the Macedonia community.
        In the years since she was born, much has changed in the world. Less than a month before Lena Clover was born President William McKinley was assassinated and Theodore Roosevelt became the 26th President of the United States.
        About the same time in the fall of 1901, Orville and Wilbur Wright were busy in their bicycle shop, building a contraption that they hoped would fly though the air. Two years later on a beach near Kitty Hawk, N.C., the brothers would make aviation history when the "heavy-than-air-machine" flew through the air.
        In the century that has passed, Clover has moved around several times, but always came back to Southern Illinois.  She said she had been born in Jackson County, but had lived in several places before moving around in her later years.
        "I lived with my son on his farm for awhile," Clover said. "Then I moved to East St. Louis awhile as well."
        She said she most vividly remembers living with a granddaughter in Texas during the winter for a couple of years.    Clover has four children, 17 grandchildren, 33 great-grandchildren and 22 great-great-grandchildren.
        Sandy Carter of Anna, one of Clover's granddaughters, was there Wednesday along with several other family members for the celebration that honored "granny." "She has been excited since they first told her about what they were planning," Carter said.
        She said her grandmother never smoked or drank and always kept her faith in God. Carter said Clover would walk to church. She also canned "anything you could put into a jar."
    "Her favorite thing is apple pie," Carter said.  Carter said she has learned a lot from her grandmother over the years. "She has taught me a lot of common values and compassion," Carter said. "Most of all, she teaches you how to love."

  JACKSON COUNTY - Family and friends describe Daniel Clover as "big-hearted," saying he was always eager to help with any project.
            Clover, 20, was found dead in the cab of his pickup truck Tuesday. The truck was recovered about 11:50 p.m. from the water near the boat ramp at Cedar Lake, southwest of Carbondale. Clover had been reported missing after he did not come home Sunday. A multi-departmental recovery team searched the boat ramp area of Cedar Lake based on Clover's last known whereabouts, according to information released by Jackson County Coroner Dr. Thomas Kupferer.
            Kupferer said preliminary investigation indicates Clover accidentally drowned. The coroner staff also collected toxicology reports.
            "He never came in the house without giving me a big hug, and he never left without giving me a big hug," his aunt, Sandy Carter, said on Wednesday. "He'd always call when he got home to say, 'I got home OK, Aunt Sandy.'"
            Carter saw Clover last week, when he and a friend caught bass on her pond. Clover caught two, she said, and she took his picture with the fish.
            Clover will be buried in a Green Bay Packers shirt, she said. He was a big fan, she said. It made him easy to shop for, because he was happy with any Packer-related gift.
            He was also a Ford truck man, occasionally getting into playful arguments with Chevrolet-loving relatives. His family was important to him, and he always made it a priority to attend family functions, Carter said.  "He was doing well for himself," Carter said. "He had a good job at Penn (Aluminum Corp. in Murphysboro). I was looking through pictures of him, and I came across his high school graduation picture. He was so proud that day. He sure is going to be missed."
            Visitation for Clover is at the Lutz and Rendleman Funeral Home in Alto Pass beginning at 5 p.m. on Friday. His funeral service is set for 10 a.m. on Saturday.
               Memorial contributions may be made to the Murphysboro Township High School Athletic Department. Clover graduated from that school in 2005.

Mary McLean Hamilton
probably the Macomb Journal, Thursday August 24, hand written Aug. 22, 1905
Death Record
Mrs. Arthur Hamilton died at her late residence, two and one half miles northeast of this city, at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, of uranic poisoning, following premature childbirth. The babe, which weighed but three and one half pounds, is still living. Her age was 20 years.
Funeral services were held at 1 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at the residence, conducted by Rev. Crawford of Galesburg, formerly of Good Hope. Interment in the cemetery at Good Hope.
The death is particularly sad, coming as it did and with the babe left motherless. She was sick only about 12 hours and although receiving the best of medical skill the poison could not be allayed, convulsions resulting.
She was only married last Christmas week, the ceremony being performed at Galesburg by Rev. Crawford, their former pastor. Her maiden name was Mary McLean, and she lived at Reed, a small town in Henderson Co. She leaves, beside her husband and babe, her parents, one brother, William, of Reed, and three sisters, Mrs. White of Kirkwood, Mrs. Harry Clover of Carmen, and Miss Lulu of Reed.

Hannah Kelly Funk Obituary
FUNERAL OF MRS. WM. FUNK HELD AT BEVERLY SUNDAY
Prominent Woman of That Community Died After Long Illness.
    A good and noble woman passed into eternity when Mrs. Hannah Funk, died at 9:20 P.M. November 13, at her home near Beverly.  Hannah Eliza, daughter of Hannah and Frazy Kelly was born November 7, 1852, and at the time of her death was aged 78 years and 6 days.  Her parents were among the early pioneers.  Her father, Frazy Kelly, coming from Woodbridge, New Jersey, and her mother, Hannah Raymond coming from Beverly, Massachusetts.
    Her mother died when she was but a baby when she was taken into the home of her aunt, Eliza, wife of William Sykes, where she was loved and cared for as an own child.  In this home she received her religious training and also training in home making and good citizenship.
    She was married to William Funk of Beverly on December 29, 174, and they established their home in Beverly, where they have always lived.  Two children came to bless this home:  Mabel E., born April 5, 1877 and now living in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Wilmer Frank born November 6, 1891, and departing this life September 9, 1923.
     Besides the husband and daughter she leaves one brother, Charles Kelly of Beverly, and five grandchildren, whom "Grandma" has always loved dearly.  The grandchildren are: Mrs. Jack Clover, Webber A. Lawson and Edna M. Lawson of Tulsa, Okla., and Margaret Ruth and Wilmer Loraine Funk of Beverly.  There are also four great-grandchildren.
    Mr. and Mrs. Funk lived a happy domestic life together for fifty-six years on their farm in the edge of the village of Beverly.  On December 29, 1924, they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in the little church in Beverly and relatives and friends gave this worthy couple a purse of gold as a small token of love and good wishes.  Mr. And Mrs. Funk wishing this gold to be of the greatest possible service gave it to the church which they have ever loved to help.
   Being of a frail physique she kept girls of the vicinity with her to assist her with her household duties.  Not only as a household assistant but as a member of her household.  Perhaps the one spending the greatest period of time in her home was Clara Hastings, now Mrs. Pinkston, who came into this home when but a girl of fifteen and remained a devoted member of this family for fourteen years, or until her own home was established.
    The funeral services were held from the Beverly M. E. church at 1:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon, November 16, in charge of the pastor, Rev. O. M.  McKinney, and interment was made in Mound Prairie cemetery.
