Charles Neale Dead

Charles F. Neale, who was a well-known and popular young man of the county, died at the home of his father, Mr. F. R. Neale, in the Pleasant Grove neighborhood on last Friday morning after a long illness of consumption.  The deceased was about thirty years of age and was born and reared in this county, where by his upright and moral character he won the respect of all with  whom he came in contact.  About a year and a half ago, his health becoming very bad, he went to New Mexico, but did not improve and returned home several weeks ago.  His condition appeared to improve somewhat since his return until a few days before his death, when he became suddenly worse.  In the fall of 1892 the deceased was married to Miss Katie Meadows and she and their little daughter survive.

The funeral took place Saturday morning from the church at Pleasant Grove, conducted by Rev. W. T. Overstreet, and the burial was in the cemetery at the same place.  The sympathy of the community is extended to the bereaved wife and child and parents of a young man whose memory will always be held in the highest esteem.

Charles F., son of F. R. and M. B. Neale, November 5, 1870 – June 1, 1900  Pleasant Grove Church Cemetery, Washington County, Kentucky
