The remains of Austin C. Slayton were brought from Hyde Park last Thursday and the funeral was held Saturday from the residence of Joseph A., his brother, Rev. Z. B. Wheeler officiating. Mr. Slayton was 56 years of age and had lived in Chicago most of the time since the war. He had for the past few months been dividing his time with his three brothers, Aro, Joseph and A. O. Slayton but at the time of becoming ill with pneumonia he was at A. P. Slayton's, his uncle's, in Hyde Park. Many comrades of the G. A. R., of which he was a member, were in attendance at his funeral.
