Name of Deceased: TANDY, Orrin E.
Name of Newspaper: Jacksonville Journal, Jacksonville, Illinois
Date of Obituary: Saturday morning, February 26, 1921
Obituary: Well Known Resident Expires Suddenly in Hotel in Raleigh - News Received Here by His Family Physician Dr. ROWE - Funeral at Franklin
Word was received in the city Friday morning of the death of Orien E. TANDY which occurred suddenly some time Thursday evening in a hotel in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The message containing the sad news was received by Dr. Edward Rowe for many years Mr. TANDY’S physician who conveyed it to Mrs. TANDY at her home in the Cherry apartments.
Mrs. TANDY had received a letter just a few days ago saying he was not feeling well, but did not think it was anything serious. So news of his death completely prostrated her and was as well a great shock to his countless friends in this city and county.
Orien E. Tandy was the son of Dr. W. M. and Jane E. TANDY and was born in Franklin, June 23, 1865. He grew to manhood in Franklin and practically all his life was spent in Morgan county.
He was united in marriage in Franklin January 17, 1892, to Miss Myrtle WRIGHT of that place who survives together with one son, George W. TANDY, of Chapel Hill, N.C., and one grand daughter, Elizabeth Boyd TANDY.
He also leaves one sister, Mrs. J. W. T. STEWART, of Franklin, two half sisters, Mrs. James CRIM of Hannibal, Mo.; Mrs. George HARNEY of Franklin, and one half brother, Edward TANDY of Jacksonville.
Took Up Teaching.
He attended the Franklin schools and later graduated from Illinois Normal. He then took up the profession of teaching for many years he taught in various schools thruout the county. He gained a fine reputation as an instructor and in 1900 took a position with the Rand-McNally Publishing company in Chicago.
When Mr. TANDY had been with this firm a few years it was evident that he had entered the work for which he was eminently fitted. Few men in the entire country had the grasp of educational affairs that was his. He had the ability to so explain the merits of a school book that not only it was clear, but also proved most interesting as well.
He was soon assigned to southern territory and in his work had visited practically every southern state. He advanced rapidly until he was one of the leading agents of the company and became recognized as an authority on school books.
Early in life Mr. TANDY united with the Christian church in Franklin and always took an active part in church work. He also took an active interest in fraternal orders and so became a member of the Masons, Odd Fellows and Jacksonville Lodge No. 682 Elks. In all of these orders he became familiar with the ritualistic work and teachings.
For a number of years he served as an instructor in the Odd Fellows. He was widely known as an orator of great ability and during his travels he made many fraternal addresses in various parts of the country for which he received the highest commendation.
Interested in Boys.
The most outstanding characteristic in the life of O. E. TANDY was his interest in young men and boys. Perhaps it was because of his work as a teacher coupled with the additional fact that his only child, a son, was devoted to athletics. But he was an ardent supporter of all sports and especially football, basketball, and baseball. He never missed a contest unless it was absolutely unavoidable. He took especial interest in the local high school where his son graduated and many boys who attended Jacksonville high school can testify to his generosity and his interest in their welfare.
He was a familiar figure at every baseball, football or basketball game played here in the last decade and was always rooting for the home team. During the four years his son was at the University of North Carolina he took great pride in his achievements and was always present during those years at the big annual game of the university with the University of Virginia.
Politically Mr. TANDY was affiliated with the Democrats party and was always prominent in its councils. He was well regarded and was called upon frequently to make addresses and was always found ready and willing to go.
Few men had greater acquaintance than Mr. TANDY. He was of kindly impulses and every ready to extend aid in time of need. He filled a large place in the life of the city and county and the influence of his life will be felt thru the years to come.
Mrs. TANDY received word Friday that her son and his wife had started from Raleigh with the remains of Mr TANDY and will arrive here probably Sunday. No definite funeral arrangements have been made. However, the services will be held in Franklin in accordance with the oft-expressed wish of the deceased.

Name of Deceased: THAYER, Asahel
Name of Newspaper: Waverly Journal
Date of Obituary: November 3, 1877
Obituary: Mr. Asahel Thayer, one of the oldest and most highly respected citizens of Waverly, died at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. George W. Crooker, in Taylorville, on Saturday last, Oct. 27th. His remains were brought to this place for interment, and on Tuesday morning were followed to the grave by a large number of citizens, all the places of business in town having been closed on the occasion. Mr. Thayer was a native of Amherst, Mass., and was born on the 10th of February, 1790. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity, and we believe the oldest Mason in the State, having united with the order in 1813. At one time he was extensively engaged in carriage manufacturing in Amherst, and whilst Gen. Jackson was president he constructed from the timbers of the old frigate Constitution a magnificent carriage which he presented to the old hero, for whom he had conceived sentiments of the most unqualified admiration. Mr. Thayer came to Waverly about thirty-five years ago and engaged in merchandise, and continued in business until January last, when old age warned him that the days of his strength had departed. He accordingly, but not without some reluctance, for his energies knew no curbing, retired from active life - his son succeeding him in trade.
Mr. Thayer was an earnest christian, and in all the years of his residence in our midst was regarded as a safe counselor, a wise and faithful friend, and a man whose word was as good as his bond, and whose integrity was above suspicion.
We hope to be able next week to give a brief sketch of Mr. Thayer’s life, as we feel that a more satisfactory record than we have had an opportunity to prepare would be of interest to our readers.
