Headstone of Charles Edward Kane

Charles Edward Kane, aged nineteen years, died of typhoid fever at his late residence on Lee street, after a lingering illness of five weeks.

The deceased was a handsome, noble young man, admired and beloved by all who knew him.

For six years he had been a trusted employee for well known business houses and his friends were many.

The immediate family surviving him are his mother, Mrs. Nellie Kane, and aunt, Miss Anna Alexander, one brother, John, and one sister, Miss Freda, two uncles, Mr. John Owen and Mr. Charles Johnson, of Pittsburgh.

The funeral obsequies were conducted at the home this morning at 10 o’clock, Rev. J. F. Plummer, rector of Christ Episcopal church, officiating.

This was one of the largest funerals seen in Clarksburg in many days, all the host of Charley’s friends wanted to pay their last respects to one whose memory they will cherish for many years to come.

The house was profusely and beautifully decorated with flowers and Christ church choir sang tenderly and sympathetically the old familiar hymns.

The pall bearers were Messrs. Louis Carr, Fleming Holden, Douglass Williams, Boyd Fleming, Clay Ogden and Will Mulheran, all close friends of the deceased.

The final ceremonies were held at the grave in the I. O. O. F. cemetery where the interment was made.
