Albert T. Danner Died Monday; Funeral Today

Albert T. Danner, a well known and highly respected farmer residing west of Astoria on Route 31, died Monday afternoon at 3:20 o’clock from cancer of the liver.

Mr. Danner had been in failing health for the past two years but was not confined to his bed until about six weeks ago, when his condition rapidly grew worse.

Mr. Danner was an honorable, upright citizen. He was held in high esteem by a large acquaintance in the community in which he had resided all his life. He died within a quarter of a mile of the old Danner homestead, where he was born and reared to manhood. His death is deeply mourned by his neighbors and friends.

Albert T. Danner, the son of Henry and Catherine Danner, was born in Fulton county, Illinois, December 22, 1864. At the time of his death he was aged 65 years, 4 months and 6 days. On November 13, 1891, he was united in marriage to Miss Effie Skiles of Browning. No children were born to this union. Johny Campbell, whom they took to raise when he was about three years old, still makes his home with them.

Mr. Danner was a member of The Church of the Brethren. Besides his wife and foster son, he is survived by three brothers, Isaac T. Danner of Vermont; Jacob Danner of Astoria and Daniel T. Danner of Canton, and two sisters, Mrs. Catherine Palmer of Cisne, Ill., and Mrs. Callie Palmer of Astoria. Mrs. A. N. Price, a sister, died October 30, 1929.

Funeral services were held this afternoon at 2:00 o’clock at the Church of the Brethren in Astoria, conducted by Rev. E. O. Norris. Interment in the Woodland cemetery.
