Delia Ruth daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George McCune born Tuesday August 7th, 1894 at 12:00 PM Died Friday October 5th, 1894 at 05:00 AM. Was laid to rest in the Mulhall Cemetery Saturday at 10:00 AM. Rev. Brown the Methodist preacher preached the funeral. She suffered six weeks. Her ailments were unknown though death never came unexpected. She had two hard convulsions Thursday night and died an easy death Friday evening. I will send you a piece of her dress and hair and some flowers off her coffin. I haven't but a small piece of the trimming to keep as a keepsake. She looked as much like me as the other did George. They took the wreath off the coffin and gave me a little white rose out of her hands. I have got them pressed. Jake says they ought to be ashamed to take our doll baby from us. He is mad at all of them yet.

JACOB LEE MCCUNE 1892 - 1940
HOUSTON SIGNAL - NOVEMBER 14, 1940 - PROMINENT HOUSTON BUSINESS MAN DIES - J.L. McCUNE, 48, LOCAL STOCK BUYER, SUCCUMBS ON NOV. 7TH
The sad duty comes to us this week to record the passing of our good friend and neighbor, J.L. McCune, an exemplary man who had made his home in our village for the past twenty years. All Houston was shocked and saddened on last Thursday afternoon when it became known Mr. McCune was dead. His death followed a period of about two years illness during which time everything possible was done for him and he made a heroic battle for life, but medical skill and science and his own efforts were fruitless. For the past six months it was believed by many that Mr. McCune was steadily growing better as he was about our village looking after his duties in connection with his business as a livestock buyer. On last Thursday, the day of his death, he was at the stockyards during the morning hours and returned after the noon hour seemingly in good spirits. During the afternoon, as was his custom, he went to the Olson Cafe for a lunch and while there he suffered a stroke; he was immediately taken to his home where he passed away shortly before six o'clock, never regaining consciousness. Jacob L. McCune was born on April 12, 1892, at West Point, Ill., son of Mr. and Mrs. G.L. McCune. In 1894 in company with his parents, he went to the state of Oklahoma and later to Missouri. The family returned to West Point, Ill., in 1909. After completing his high school education Mr. McCune enrolled in the William Jewell College at Liberty, Mo., from which institution he graduated. In 1913, at the age of twenty-one years, Mr. McCune came to Minnesota, settling in Huntley where he operated an elevator and engaged in the buying of livestock. When the World War broke out Mr. McCune enlisted and while not being sent overseas served his country with credit and attained the rank of sergeant. Following the war he again returned to Huntley but remained only a short time when he came to our village as stock buyer for the Geo. A. Hormel Company at Austin. He acted as the Hormel representative for a number of years after which he carried on the business in his own name. Mr. McCune was united in marriage to Mrs. Bertha Brevig Ekren of this village on Christmas Day, Dec. 25th, 1926, by Rev. B.B. Ostrem. They have since made their home in this village. The business ability of Mr. McCune, coupled with his genial and courteous manner is emphasized in the steady growth of his business ventures, and at one time he was buying stock in six or eight villages in this section of Minnesota and neighboring Wisconsin. At the time of his death he still purchased stock at Hokah as well as in Houston. His death was not only a great loss to his family, but also this community. His alertness in keeping abreast of the ever changing stock markets and in establishing a market in this village brought stock here from not only this section of Minnesota, but from Iowa, and Wisconsin and did much in establishing Houston as a good stock market which aided many farmers financially. For the past two years, during which time Mr. McCune has been indisposed and unable to carry on his business, his interests in this village have been very creditably carried on by his cousin, Henry McCune, who has been Mr. McCune's employee for the past eleven years. Mr. McCune, who was forty-eight years old, is survived by his wife; his mother, Mrs. George L. McCune of this village and two sisters, Mrs. Philip Weber of Fairmont, Minn., and Mrs. Amiel Benson of Mound Prairie. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon, Nov. 11, from the McCune residence at one-thirty o'clock and from the St.Peter's Lutheran church in this village at two o'clock, Rev. A.W. Nelson officiating. The spacious edifice was filled with those who came to pay their last respects to the deceased. During the services a male quartet composed of Messrs. Leigh Iverson, Orvin Halvorson, Maynard Nelson and Adrian Julsrud sang two songs, "O Spirit Come," and "The Old Rugged Cross." Miss Ingrid Julsrud played their accompaniment. Interment was made in the McCune family lot in the Money Creek cemetery the casket bearers being: Messrs. Telbert Loken, P.F. Johnson, W. McMillan, D.R. Abraham, L.H. Briggs, and G.L. Schonlau. The commitment services at the cemetery were in charge of the Sheldon-Arnet American Legion Post of this village, of which McCune was a member. When this paper last came to you the deceased was upon our streets greeting his friends with a happy "Good Morning." Today all that was mortal of our friend and townsman is at peaceful rest in our Silent City. Among those from out of town at the funeral on Monday afternoon were Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Miller, Mr. and Mrs. Teland Ruddell and son Richard, Lloyd Howes of Hamilton, Ill., Mrs. Henry Herzog and Mrs. Ida Klingel, Warsaw, Ill., Mrs. Dora Davidson and son Harold, Basco, Ill., Jas. McCune and son Earl, Quincy, Ill., Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Weber, daughter Margery, sons Jackie and Richard, Fairmont, Minn., Mrs. Robert McCune, Whalan; E. Fruechte, New Albin, IA., Mr. and Mrs. Delbert Lee, George Murray, Hokah; Ray Harding, Wm. O'Mireau, Chicago; Hugo Murray, E.H. Clough, Lymann Bremmer, Milwaukee; Lou Reeves, Austin, Charley Farrel, Chatfield; Pat Devlin, Preston.
