• Obituary: Henry Republican, 6 Apr 1876, Magnolia, Putnam County, Illinois. The sad intelligence was received on the 31st of the death of Lewis Wierman at or near Colorado Springs. Mr. W. has for some years past been suffering with an affection of the lungs; last spring he concluded to take a trip to the "far west," and see if a change of climate would not restore to him his former health; he remained there during the summer, was well pleased, felt better, and returned a few weeks since to settle up his affairs, take his mother with him, and make Colorado his future home. But alas, the messenger of death visited him, and called him to that home where a universe of angels dwell. His brother Isaac started on Saturday to accompany the remains back to their future resting place.
