Death Comes Suddenly to Edwin N. Hoadley, Civil War Veteran

Edwin Nelson Hoadley, for twenty years a resident of Wyoming, and for a number of years previous to his coming here, a resident of the neighborhood of Lombardville and Buda, died at his home on North Galena avenue in this city at seven o'clock last night.
Mr. Hoadley has been in failing health for a number of years, and particularly since a severe attack of influenza a little over a year ago, which left him in a weakened condition.  He was no worse than usual, however, during the day of his death, and on that day walked into town.  At about 4 o'clock in the afternoon he went to the North Side grocery store, where he was suddenly stricken with illness, and was carried to his home in an unconscious condition, from which he never recovered.  Death was due to the infirmities of old age and a weakened heart, caused by influenza.
Mr. Hoadley was born in New York City September 23, 1844, and was in his seventy-sixth year at the time of death.  When a boy he learned the blacksmithing trade from his father, which occupation he followed throughout his life.
In 1864 he enlisted as a private in Company A, 139th Illinois Volunteer Infantry, with which he served until the close of the Civil war.
Deceased is survived by his wife and four sons, Thomas, from whom the family has not heard for eighteen years; William and James D., of Lombardville, Illinois, and Sherman W., at home.  One daughter, Mary, died about eight years ago.
Funeral services will be held tomorrow afternoon at two o'clock at the Methodist church, in charge of Rev. L. V. Harmon.  Interment will be in Wyoming cemetery.
