Obituary: John W. PHILLIPS Daily Enquirer 12-23-1911 Death Angel Calls John W. PHILLIPS Stricken Suddenly at His Home, Monday Evening-Funeral to be Held Tomorrow Afternoon John W. PHILLIPS died very suddenly with heart disease at his home on Orient street, at nice o'clock, Monday night. The news of his death came as a great shock to his many friends, as he was down town as usual, Monday, and was seemingly in his usual health. It appears, however, that he had been complaining of not feeling well and had not worked for three weeks. Some ten days before his death, he had consulted his physician who diagnosed his trouble as valvular heart disease and had cautioned him against any violent exercise. Death is always sad, but when a loved one is taken just at the joyful Christmas tide it seems unusually sad and the family of Mr. PHILLIPS has the sincere sympathy of his many friends for he was popular with all who knew him. Mr. PHILLIPS was born in Gallatin Tenn., Sept. 9, 1841, and was the son of Col. and Mrs. Thad PHILLIPS, who moved to this state when their son was but nine years of age. When the war broke out he joined the 14th Illinois infantry, which was an enlistment for 90 days. At the end of that period he joined the 32nd Illinois and served through all the years of the war and was in many of the big battles. He was married in Girard, January 5th, 1865, to Miss Susan DAVIS, who with their two sons, Bert, at home, and Richard, of Salt Lake, survive him. He also leaves a grandson, Bert, and a great grandson, Richard Kirk. Mr. PHILLIPS was a painter and decorator by trade, a charter member of Orient Lodge in this city and also a Modern Woodman. The funeral will be held Wednesday at 2 o'clock, from his late residence, and will be in charge of Rev. R. Y. WILLIAMS, at the house, and the Knights of Pythias will have charge of services at the grave.

Name of Newspaper: The Kingfisher Free Press, OK 
Date of Obituary: December 17, 1903 
Obituary: The Kingfisher Free Press December 17, 1903 ACROSS THE RIVER Col. C. T. PROUTY Called to Rest-A Good Man Gone Another good man has gone to his reward. Col. PROUTY is dead. We would fain believe it were not true, but we must bow to the inevitable. Three times in the past ten weeks has the grim Destroyer visited the PROUTY home. A loving daughter was taken and within a few short days a beloved son-in-law, and now the colonel has gone from among us, and we shall see him here no more. But to the bereaved family there is left that one solace- that meeting over on the other side of the river. "Whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth." The ways of the Omnipotent are past finding out, but some day, some where, some times those who folourn, and they are many, will understand why these things must be. Col. PROUTY was a Christian gentleman, a public-spirited citizen-one whose counsel and cheer will be missed in every worthy enterprise, a man beloved by his fellow men. He was always ready to help the needy, and to sympathize with those in sorrow. Truly he was a good man. Cyrus T. PROUTY was the son of Dr. Hugh PROUTY, a prominent New York physician, later of Ohio, and who met his death by accidental drowning in 1851. His mother, whose maiden name was Margaret TICE, died while the deceased was but a child. He was born in Monroeville, Ohio, June 12, 1840, and in 1858 came to Carlinville, Illinois, where he taught school until the breaking out of the Civil War. In September, 1861, he enlisted in Co. A, 32nd Illinois Infantry, and served in the army of Tennessee, took part in the battles of Ft. Henry, Donelson and Shiloh. In the battle of Shiloh, he was wounded in the right knee cap, and was off duty until September, '62, when he rejoined his regiment. He was brevetted Lt. Col. for his conspicuous bravery at Shiloh. In October, 1863, he resigned from the army on account of disability, and took up his avocation of school teaching. In 1864 he was appointed deputy Internal Revenue Collector for the Seventh District, and in 1868 was elected to the Illinois legislature. In 1874 he was appointed postmaster at Carlinville, Ill., by GRANT, re-appointed by HAYES and again in 1882 by Arthur. February 12, 1863, he was united in marriage to Miss Julia F. VAN OSDELL. They moved to Dighton, Kansas, in 1897, and to Kingfisher in 1890. He was elected to the Oklahoma Council in 1894 over Callahan, and served with distinction on several important committees. He was appointed in 1899 by Gov. BARNES to the office of Chief Grain Inspector of the territory, which position he held until the time of his death. He was a consistent member of the Congregational church, in which church the funeral services were held Sunday afternoon. Four children were born to C. T. and Julia PROUTY, two of them, William and Ida, having preceded their father to the better land. The two surviving children, Frank and Mrs. Alberta WILKINSON, and their mother are left to mourn. "In my father's house are many mansions; if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you that where I am, there may you be also." The deceased was member of the Board of Education, of Kingfisher Lodge No. 8, A. F. & A. M., and Kingfisher Post No. 2, G. A. R. The various organizations have passed appropriate resolutions, some of which we publish, the others reaching us too late for this issue. The funeral services were held at the Congregational church Sunday afternoon. The Masonic lodge, Kingfisher Post, G. A. R., the Grain Dealers Association and the Board of Education of this city, four organizations of which he was a member, each attended in a body. A large number of people were present in fact there was not room for nearly all who came, and many were turned away. The services began at 3:45 the choir singing "Rock of Ages." The Rev. Dwight S. BAYLEY, pastor, read some selections from the Bible and offered short prayer. Rev. J. H. PARKER, a former pastor and long-time personal friend of the deceased, preached a short sermon, taking as his text, Acts 11th, 24th, "For he was a good man." The service closed with the hymn, "Asleep in Jesus." The Masonic order took charge of the services after the sermon and the burial was conducted according to their ritual.
