Obits > Chauncy McClure- 1903

Submitted by Les Niemi

September 26, 1903
Chancey McCLURE died Sunday night at 9:30 at his home north-west of here from the effects of a severe kick in the abdomen by a mule last Wednesday noon. Since his injury he seemed to be getting better and the inflammation seemed to be getting better, but on Sunday he grew rapidly worse and although both Dr. HORNER and SMITH did everything possible, they could not stem death. Interment was in Whittington cemetery.
Chauncey Herbert McCLURE was born in Galva, Ill., April 19, 1862, and was married at Jefferson, Iowa, Jan. 23 to Ruby UNDERHILL. For five years they lived in Jefferson when they moved to Nebraska where they lived six years. In 1892 they came to Tampico since which time this community has been their home.
The deceased was one of a family of seven children, two of whom died in childhood. The surviving are: E.D., of Tampico; William, of Nebraska; James, of Utah; Mrs. Bessie SEAVER of Utah; and Joseph of Nebraska. A wife and four children survive: Eunice, Maud, Lillian, Chauncey and Alice.
