Funeral of the Late Sergeant Lewis Jones—Last Honors to a Veteran

Late on Tuesday evening last, the remains of Sergeant Jones were received from the Northwestern Branch at Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he had died, having gone there on a short visit with the hope of improving his health, but, as it has transpired, without any beneficial results. The respect entertained for him by his comrades here, as well as his own request, to be buried amongst those whom he had so long known, led to a request that his body be sent to the Central Branch for interment. Arrangements had been made by the Grand Army, of which he was a Past Post Commander, to have the coffin lie in state at their usual meeting place, and it remained surrounded by the Post and U.S. flags, and a tasteful but abundant collection of flowers and evergreens, and at 2 o’clock p.m., yesterday, the funeral ceremonies took place. An escort of the Brown Guard, under the command of First Lieutenant James M. Bermingham, preceded by the band, attended the body to its last resting place. The pall bearers where two officers of the G.A.R. and four of the Brown Guard, the hearse being followed by Colonel J. B. Thomas, Chaplain Earnshaw, G.A.R. Chaplain, A. Leechman, Captain D. F. Giddinger, and Post-Adjutant Campbell, as chief mourners. The remainder of the procession consisted of members of the G.A.R. under the command of Colonel Isaac B. Stevens, the Mexican veterans under Captain John B. Brookbank, the Fire Department under the direction of Foreman Wm. Welsh.

Chaplain Earnshaw made a recapitulation of the merits of the deceased and his untiring exertions for the general welfare of his comrades, and commended his quiet and unexceptionable conduct during the eight years he had been connected with the Home.

Anna Julick
Dayton Daily News – August 29, 1904, Pg 2A

The death of Mrs. Anna Julick, the beloved wife of Joseph Julick of West Dayton, occurred last midnight just as the sad bells tolled the hour. She had not been ill long, and her sudden summons to the other world, into which she was well fitted to go, came as a shock to the members of her family, and to a large relationship who had loved her dearly. She was taken ill a little over 10 days ago, but no one presumed that her illness would be serious, and up to the last she was confident that she would recover. All that medical skill could do was performed, but all to no avail. Surrounded by a sorrowing husband, children, and relatives, her soul took its flight. Her death occurred just at the time that she and her family were making arrangements to move into a pretty new home they had just purchased. She had planned the comforts for the new home with much eagerness, but death has prevented her enjoyment of them. She and her husband have a large relationship in this city and county, and all mourn the loss of Mrs. Julick. She is survived by her husband, Joseph Julick; three children--Harry, Clarence and Mabel Julick--and one little grandchild. Deceased was X0 [age not legible] and 3 months old. The funeral will be held Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock with services at the Progressive Brethren church on the Eaton pike, six miles west of Dayton, at 10:30. Six brothers-in-law will be pallbearers.
