Obituary

HEZRON G. DAY DIES HERE
End Comes to South Dakotan While on Visit

Hezron George Day, ninety-one, of Hot Springs, S. D. , died Wednesday at the home of a son, Warren F. Day, 4300 South st. He had come to Lincoln only last week for one of his periodic visits with his son.

Born in Vermont, Mr. Day removed in 1888 to Beatrice, where he operated a drug store for a number of years. He went to South Dakota in 1906 and Hot Springs had been his home in recent years.

Mr. Day served for a year during the Civil war with the Sixteenth Vermont infantry, and was a member of Rawlings post, G.A.R., at Beatrice. The body will be taken to Bradford, Vt., for funeral and burial.

Besides the son here, Mr. Day leaves another son, Rear Admiral George C Day, Washington, of the United States navy; two daughters, Anna V. Day of Milwaukee, and Mrs. Sheldon B. Coon of Huntington Park, Calif.
