Oliver P. Weese Dies, Following Long Illness

O. P. Weese, a prominent and highly respected farmer, died at his home southeast of Astoria, Friday, aged 62 years, 9 months and 4 days.

Mr. Weese was an invalid for several months previous to his death.

Oliver Perry Weese, son of Pleasant and Mary Jane Weese was born in Pleasant township, Feb. 15, 1864. There he lived and grew to manhood.

He was united in marriage to Marietta Langston, daughter of John and Martha Langston of Woodland township, October 5, 1890 and walked down life's journey a faithful companion, sharing the joys and sorrows that come along a journey in the flesh. To this union was born three sons: Forrest of Pontiac, Mich., Park of Astoria, Ill., and Mark at home.

Mr. Weese was a very prominent man, very active in the affairs of life and was very widely and favorably known in the community in which he lived until his recent illness which has caused very intense suffering for more than a year.

Mr. Weese, like many others, put off the most important thing in life; that of his soul's salvation, which he very much regretted as the end drew near.

During his terrible suffering he made a confession to his Christ, in whom he put all of his trust until he was overtaken in death.

He leaves to mourn his departure the wife, the three above named sons, one grandson, one sister, Mrs. B. S. Diehl of Ipava, Ill., one brother, A. C. Weese of Detroit, Michigan and a host of other relatives and friends.

Funeral services were held at the U. B. church in Astoria, Ill., Monday at 1:30 p.m., conducted by Rev. Elmer McKay, pastor of the Free Methodist church in Ipava, Ill., assisted by Rev. W. R. Seitzinger of Astoria and interment in the Astoria cemetery.
