Obituary - 

In the death of Charles Truckenmiller of near McEwensville on Monday, another land mark has been taken away. The departed was born and lived about seventy years in the immediate vicinity of McEwensville. It is just nine months since Mother Truckenmiller died. Although the children are all grown, this double bereavement falls heavily, and truly the waters are deep through which they are now passing. We deeply sympathize with them in the loss of a kind and affectionate mother and a dear and devoted father, and we sincerely trust that he who tempers the wind to the shorn lamb" may deal gently with them in this their night of sorrows. Life's fitful dreams are o'er; rest, sprit, rest. The now sainted dead was his 80th year.
