Webb, William T.
Death of a Prominent Citizen
W. T. Webb, Esq., Expired Suddenly at 1:20 Wednesday Morning
Our community was again saddened on Wednesday morning, by the announcement of the death of a prominent and respected citizen, Wm. T. Webb, Esq., which had occurred unexpectedly a few hours before.
Mr. Webb had been in usual health on the previous evening, having attended to matters in his place of business and gone about our streets some. At midnight he awakened and informed his wife he was suffering from a very severe pain about his heart. Mrs. Webb summoned Dr. J. T. Ullom and also some of the neighbors. The physician arrived and was rendering medical attention when suddenly the patient gave forth a sigh and expired, his death occurring about 1:20 a.m.
Deceased was born in Waynesburg February 21, 1840, being the son of W. T. E. Webb Esq., a prominent and influential citizen of his time. Wm. T. Webb had at different periods been engaged in both the livery and saddle and harness business, the latter being his occupation at the time of his death. He had filled the office of Justice of the Peace for three terms and had made perhaps one of the best officials in that office our county has ever had. He was a man of deliberateness and firm opinion , and was sustained through his life a character for uprightness, integrity, honor and honesty which was never questioned. He was kind of heart and his influence was always right. He would have scorned to commit even the smallest act of unfairness in a business or legal transaction, and it is said that his decisions as a justice were always sustained by the higher courts.
He was united in Marriage in 1860 to Miss Delilah Hunnell who died some years ago. Two children survive, Mary, wife of C. W. Minor and Ella, wife of Joseph Patton, Esq. Mr. Webb was united in marriage seven years ago to Miss Luella Nesbitt, of Marietta, O., who survives him, and who kindly ministered to him during many months of illness the past two years. He is also survived by two sisters Mrs. S. S. Bayard, of Carmichaels and Mrs. W. W. Evans, of this place; two half sisters, Mrs. Edward B. Walton, of Waynesburg, and Mrs. Edward Parkinson, of Old Concord, and a half-brother, Z. C. Ragan, of this place. Deceased had been prominent in the I. O. O. F. for many years and this organization will have, charge of his funeral which will be held from his late residence at 4 p.m. on Friday.
In his death our community sustains the loss of an excellent citizen and to the bereaved family sympathy is extended by all.

Madeleine Wheat, 17, younger daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mentor Wheat, 666 West Lincoln boulevard, passed away very suddenly this noon at home, the immediate cause of her death being a heart attack suffered while she was sleeping. Not having been well recently, she had been following medical advice to rest occasionally during the daytime and had gone to sleep before noon. A few minutes after twelve, her father went upstairs to speak to her, and, failing to arouse her, became alarmed. It was evident to him, in a few moments, that she had passed away during her sleep.
Madeleine, who was a member of the senior class of Freeport high school, was born Dec. 7, 1920. She attended the public schools of Freeport. Inheriting her mother's talent and aptitude for music, she was an accomplished musician, and a member of various orchestras, bands and choruses during all of her school days. She was cellist in the high school orchestra. Madeleine was a girl of winning personality, and always a favorite with her many friends, young and grown-up, all of whom will be greatly shocked by the tragic news.
At last word, her mother, who had accompanied the high school soloists and ensembles to Elkhart, Ind, yesterday, to act as their accompanist, had not yet been reached by long distance telephone.
Madeleine is survived by her father and mother and an elder sister, Miss Katherine Wheat, who recently graduated from Moser college in Chicago.

Wiley, Calvin Andrew
Calvin Andrew Wiley, for twelve years house father at the St. Charles School for Boys, passed away last Sunday evening, after an illness of a few hours, having been stricken with apoplexy.
Mr. Wiley was born in West Virginia 64 years ago June 19th. He came from that state to Chicago where he was married, thirty years ago. The couple went to New York City where Mr. Wiley entered into important business relations, severing these relations 12 years ago and returning to Chicago. He entered the work here at the St. Charles School and through the changes of administration and stress of all responsibilities imposed, he had acquitted himself well and conscientiously performed alloted duties in such a manner as to receive high commendation.
Besides his arduous duties as housefather, Mr. Wiley has had charge of the farm tool room. He was so methodical in his charge that he knew the exact nook each piece should occupy, when it was taken out, and when, if ever, it had been returned.
The boys in his cottage were his children. He and Mrs. Wiley lost their two children, and the love that would have been theirs had they lived was meted out in full measure to the boys under his charge. There was written on each young face, as they attended the funeral, the sorrow they felt at the loss of their best friend.
Mr. Wiley was admitted, passed and raised to the degree of master Mason in Minerva lodge, Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1894, and still held membership there. He attended the local lodge, and their beautiful ritual was observed at the funeral Tuesday morning, following a service held by Rev. F. C. Neitz.
The Masonic and O.E.S. lodges attended in a body. Mrs. E. F. Works and Mrs. Geo. Irwin sang appropriate music and the entire service was beautiful. The floral offerings were surpassingly beautiful.
Coming a few hours after the services, were two sisters of Mr. Wiley, Mrs. Kate Wiley of Wheeling, W.Va., and Miss Adda Wiley of New York City. Other relatives and friends attending the funeral were Mrs. S. M. Decker, Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Thorp, and two sons, all of Chicago, and Mrs. J. J. Wheat of Indianapolis.
The burial was at Forest Home cemetery, Chicago.
The widow, Mrs. Etta Wiley, who has been the faithful and loved companion, will probably reside with her niece in Evanston. This home is open to the well loved aunt, and she will find a welcome to its fireside and into the hearts of the members of the household. The place that the "Wileys" held in the esteem of all will not be filled.

Miss Katharine Wiley
The strife is o'er, the battle won,
The song of triumph has begun--
Praise and thanksgiving for the good example and unselfish life of a departed friend are in our hearts today. In the death of Miss Katharine WILEY, as in that of her sister Miss Julia years ago, the city of Wheeling sustains a great loss. It is not often that two members of the same family are able to render such continuous service to the community as educators and humanitarians-From one sister, hundreds of our youth in our public schools received with secular training the foundation principles of that integrity of character that makes the upright citizen of today.
Not less beautiful and helpful has been the life of Miss Katharine WILEY who is laid at rest this morning. For twenty-one years she gave faithful and unremitting care to the aged women who sought the friendly shelter of the Home on Thirteenth Street. To each she extended sisterly sympathy and the benediction of her presence was a balm to the weary and lonely. Her wholesome personality, cheerful countenance and wise counsel brightened and lightened the labors of all who were associated with her in the management of the Home. Her long years of service mark the appreciation of the Board of Directors in one of the most worthy institutions of the city.
In earlier years Miss WILEY had charge of a home for boys, and so great was her influence and so effective her training that she was remembered with gratitude by boys grown to manhood, who in passing through the city often called to express their appreciation of her teaching and kindliness.
Of her religious life, her pastors and others bear testimony to her devotion to her church, the Fourth Street Methodist Episcopal, to the regularity of her attendance upon its services and her conscientious discharge of her duty and obligation.
Now the laborer's task in o'er
Now the battle day is past,
Now upon the farther shore,
Lands the voyager at last.
There the tears of earth are dried
There its hidden things are clear
There the works of life is tried
By a juster judge than here.
Father, in Thy gracious keeping,
Leave we now Thy servant sleeping.
