Obituary of W. L. CRAIN
DIED--Sunday, March 5, 1899, W. L. Crain, aged 82 years, 3 months and 12, days. 
Deceased had been a resident of Oswego for several years up to within three weeks prior to his death, and his many friends will be sorry to learn of his sudden demise. Four weeks ago, The Oswego Independent chronicled the death of his wife and it is thought the attention he gave her during her last sickness together with the weight of years proved too much for his physical ability. His son, A. J. Crain moved him from Oswego to his home in Cherokee county, where he was kindly nursed; but at 10 a. m. on date above mentioned the lamp of life refused to burn and his spirit took its everlasting flight. 
Mr. Crain was born in Tennessee, but in an early day moved to southern Illinois, in Washington county, where he resided for fifty years. Twelve years ago he moved to Cherokee county and since then remained a resident of the state until his death. He professed religion when 18 years old and lived an exemplary Christian life. He could say as did Paul: "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course. Oh, death where is thy victory? Oh, grave where is thy sting? I step forth from thy tabernacle to the holy hill of the Lord."
