WILL BROOKS
 
DEATH WAS SUPRISE
 
Relatives of this vicinity were surprised and pained to hear last week of the death of Will Brooks at the home of his sister, Mrs. Gus Peacock in Moline.  The cause of his death was heart trouble from which he had been a sufferer during the past winter. He passed away on Tuesday evening, March 25.  His remains were brought to Prophetstown Friday morning and placed in the vault in the cemetery there awaiting the better condition of the roads when he will be buried in Fairfield cemetery at Yorktown.
