    Death of L K Calhoun - Bloomington, Illinois Pantagraph newspaper, dated 9/6/1899, page 5, Wednesday morning.
    Old Resident of this city dies after a long illness with heart trouble
    Yesterday afternoon at 1:45 o'clock occurred the death of Mr. L. K. Calhoun. after an illness of three years with organic heart trouble. Mr. Calhoun was a very well known resident of this city and had passed all his mature years here, and the announcement of his death occasioned many expressions of regret on the street yesterday afternoon.
    The deceased was born Dec 14, 1851 in Springbrough, Warren county, Ohio and when three years of age his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Calhoun, moved to Illinois and settled in Randolph's Grove, where a year later his mother died. His father was a Lieutenant in the 94 th Illinois volunteer infantry during the Civil War and died a year ago last January at his home in Nebraska.
    Mr. Calhoun was married March 16, 1880 to Miss Mary Welch and she with five children, Borden, Ella, John, Lewis and Everett, survive, as do also two Uncles, Messrs. John and Clinton Calhoun, both well known residents of McLean county and this city.
    Mr. Calhoun was a member of the Masonic fraternity, of the Junior Mechanics and of the First M.E church. For one term he was collector of taxes for Bloomington township. With his death passes away the last member of his mother's family. He also leaves two half brothers and five half sisters, who reside in the west. He was a man of much integrity and was highly esteemed among his extensive circle of acquaintance. The funeral announcement will be made later.

    In the Bloomington Pantagraph newspaper, Friday a.m., 9/8/1899 for funeral:
    The funeral services of Mr. Louis K. Calhoun were held yesterday morning at 10 o'clock from the First M.E. Church. The services were conducted by Rev. George E. Scrimger and appropriate music was rendered by the choir.
    The interment took place at the Orendorff (now called Blooming Grove) Cemetery southeast of the city. The pall bearers were L.D. Welch, Leonard Munsell, Frank Sutherland and Jacob Bringham.
