August 23, 1902

John AYDELOTT, until recently a resident of this place, had for over sixteen years the trusted superintendent of the firm of KINSER & Son, contractors, died very suddenly of apoplexy last Sunday night at 9 o'clock in his room in Chicago. His death was very sudden as he had been well and found dead at the desk, his head resting on his hand, by a follow resident, Mr. BENTON. The remains were brought here to the home of James STURM, a friend of the deceased's family, and the funeral service was held Thursday at 2 o'clock in the Methodist church, Rev. BERNREUTER officiating. Interment was in the cemetery here.

Born in Rushville, Ind., May 14, 1858, the deceased lived there until 1882 when he moved to Munic, where he was married on May 14, 1880 to Mrs. AYDELOTT. During the past sixteen years his work with KINSER & Son has taken him all over the United States, having no location for a permanent home. During the excavation of the canal feeder here he had charge of the work and lived here for two years, going to Chicago this spring to take charge of some work there for KINSER & Son.

His wife and one daughter, Mrs. Arlie LOVE, survive and are prostrated by his sudden and unexpected death. Mr. AYDELOTT made numerous friends here, who sympathize with him and regret that a good man, liked by all, has bee stricken down.
