Mrs. David H. Maitland of Genoa, former well known and esteemed Sycamore resident, passed away at 9 o'clock Monday morning at the Glidden Memorial Hospital, where she had been a patient, since Wednesday of last week. She was afflicted with a heart ailment.

Luella Adelia Gardner was the daughter of Andrew and Mary Black Gardner and was born on July 8, 1875, at Longton, Lynn County, Kansas. When she was but four years of age, her father, died, and she and her mother and the other four children came to Sycamore to make their home. She attended the local schools, growing to young womanhood there. On October 15, 1890, she was married to David H. Maitlands (sic) at Sycamore. Most of their married life was spent in Sycamore, with the exception of a few years, when they moved to Klemme, Ia., and were engaged in farming there. They returned to Sycamore and remained here, until Mr. Maitland retired, about 12 years ago, then moved to Genoa, where the home has since been made.

Mrs. Maitland's life was beautifully and fully lived. She was a faithful member of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Sycamore. Her admirable traits of character acquired many friends for her.

Surviving her demise are her husband and three children, Mrs. Jennie Trafford of Belmond, Iowa, Henry Maitland of Beloit. Wis., and Mrs. Helen Haefner of DeKalb. Surviving also are two sisters, Mrs. Richard Cook and Mrs. Arthur Robinson, both of Sycamore, three brothers, Jesse Gardner of this city, Raymond of Maple Park and Floyd Winans of Los Angeles, Calif., also five grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

Death of Arthur Meade

Former Sycamore Boy, Son of Well Known Horseman, Passed Away On Monday After Long Illness At His Home In Belvidere

Arthur Meade, who passed most of the years of his youth in Sycamore, where he was well known, died at his home, 1609 Pearl street, Belvidere, on Monday evening, after a long illness. The funeral services were held at the home on Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. H. E. Rompel officiating, and the interment was in Belvidere cemetery.

The Belvidere Republican says:
There survive his wife, one son, Dwight of Chicago; his father, Benjamin Meade and two brothers, Frank of Belvidere, and Edward of Genoa.

The deceased was born in Belvidere January 24, 1847. His home for a number of years had been in Elgin, Ill., and Kalamazoo, Mich., but he returned to Belvidere about four years ago and has since resided here.

Mr. Meade was highly esteemed in the community and was of a genial and kindly temperment. His many friends will much deplore his demise and extend their sincere sympathy to the bereaved family.

The father, Benjamin Meade, was a pioneer of this section, living here when the old stage coaches were the means of travel through this section. He is now living at a remarkable age, having reached 95 years, and is active and comparatively well, being able to drive horses and get about the city.1

John Valentine Taken By Death
Widely Known Resident of DeKalb County Stricken at Grange Meeting in Malta; Lived in This Vicinity Many Years

John Stanton Valentine, 53 years old, a widely known DeKalb county resident, died suddenly at a meeting of the Malta Grange in that village at about 9;30 o'clock Monday evening. He had been in his usual good health, and was seated in a chair when he slumped back, death striking before aid coul(d) reach him.

Mr. Valentine was born in Polo, Ill., June 8, 1884, a son of George Howard and Mrs. Harriet Shaver Valentine. He spent his boyhood in Polo and Beatrice, Neb., where the family resided for some time. They returned to Polo, he completing his education at Dixon college.

Live Here Many Years

He moved to Sycamore when he was 19 years old, and married Miss Bessie Stephens, daughter of the late Atty. and Mrs. Joseph Stephens, Dec. 8, 1910. They resided near Sycamore since that time with the exception of two years spent in Lewistown, Mont., returning to this vicinity in 1918, locating near DeKalb.

He was a member of the DeKalb

Besides his widow he is survived by one son, Merle, DeKalb; two sisters, Mrs. Roland Butler of Iowa and Mrs. Eric Rhode now residing in California, and two brothers, George of Aurora, and Richard of Sycamore.

Tentative funeral arrangements have been made. The services probably will be held Thursday afternoon, at 2 o'clock from the home in Oakland subdivision on the Sycamore-DeKalb road, and at 2:30 o'clock from the DeKalb First Methodist church. The body will lie in state at Wirtz and Wirtz parlors in DeKalb until Wednesday afternoon.2
