Anthony HAMBLOCK one of the oldest citizens of this community and for more than a half century a resident of Tampico township, died at the old home farm a mile east of Tampico last week Friday afternoon about 4:45. He had been gradually declining in health for some time due to his advancing years but was only bedfast the three weeks preceding his death which was caused by the breaking down of his system on account of his age.
Funeral services were held Monday morning at 10 o'clock at St. Mary's church conducted by Rev. Father L.X. DuFOUR and interment was in St. Mary's cemetery.
Anthony HAMBLOCK was born July 16, 1828 in Germany and came to this country when about 35 years of age. He was married in Sterling to Ellen HOLLAHAN and shortly after their marriage they moved to the farm east of Tampico which has been their home since. Five children were born to this union, four of which died in infancy. One son, Joseph the only remaining relative and child lives on the home place with his family. The deceased was known as a hard working, industrious farmer who by the fruits of his toil earned a fine farm. He was a faithful member of St. Mary's church and took an interest in its welfare.
