Felix French

Death of Felix French, he was probably the oldest Mason in the city. 

Sunday evening at 5:45 o'clock occurred the death of Felix French at his home at No. 15 East Sixth Avenue. His death was caused by stomach trouble of long standing. He was 81 yrs old. Fifty-four years ago he was made a Mason in Indiana, his native state and was a member continuously up to the time of his death. He moved to this city in 1893 from Vermilion County, Indiana. He leaves a daughter and two sons all of whom reside in Reno County. C. E. French lives six miles west of the city, and the other two, Elizabeth and I. E. French are residents of Hutchinson. The funeral took place at 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon from his late residence. Rev. O. L. Cook, pastor of the Christian church conducted the religious exercises and the remains were laid to rest in Eastside Cemetery by the Masonic order.
