Obituary of Richard CAMPBELL (1915)

From the Danville Gazette (Danville, Indiana) - issue of Thursday, February 18, 1915 - page 1, column 5:

Richard Campbell, a prominent retired farmer of Danville, died at Chapel Hill, N. Car., Sunday night, after a short illness with pneumonia. He went to that place a few weeks ago with the expectation of spending the winter. He was not feeling well when he left, but it was thought that the change would be beneficial. Relatives were summoned to his side on Wednesday of last week, and the news of his death came Monday morning. He was a man who stood high in the community, and the news of his death came as a distinct shock. He was about 63 years old. A daughter, Mrs. Edgar Stephenson, survives, and a brother, Sam Stephenson, resides at Hadley. The body was brought home for burial, arriving here at 7:55 this morning. Deceased was born in North Carolina and he was visiting relatives in that state when he was taken fatally ill. The funeral will be held from the Baptist church at 2:00 Friday afternoon.
