Kerns, Allie ( - 29 JAN 1888)

Died, in this city (Neillsville, Clark County), Sunday morning, Jan. 29, 1888, after a lingering illness of a month, Allie Kearns, ONLY CHILD OF Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Kerns.

The people of this city, although expecting the sad event for many days, were shocked when the announcement was made Sunday morning, "Allie is dead." He had grown up in the city, known and respected by all. He was an energetic young business man, and gave promise of being one of the leading men of the city in business affairs. He was the idol of his parents, and he deserved to be. His care and affection for his mother, his tender solicitude for her comfort and pleasure was known to aid, and her loss is hard to be borne. He was a help and a blessing to his father, who is left with no one to perpetuate his name or aid him in the now melancholy journey of life. While we cannot assuage the grief which wells up in his heart, we can sympathize with him in his great loss, for we have felt the heavy hand of the despoiler and know how grievous it is to be borne. Still, it becomes us to philosophically submit, for we know .(my copy we unreadable here).

The funeral which took place from St. Mary's Church, on Tuesday, was largely attended, and the great numbers present showed the esteem in which the deceased was held by his fellow citizens, as well as their respect and sympathy for the bereaved parents.
