Mrs. Oleene Hug was born April 20th, 1832, in Slewswig, Sweswig Holstein, Germany. She was married to John Hug September (?), 1856, and would soon have celebrated their Golden Wedding. There was born to them nine children, five of them are still living. She had always been a true and faithful wife and loving mother. She died April 5th, 1904, at the age of 71 years, 11 months and 17 days.
For 23 years, she, with the family, has lived on the same place near Summerville, which together they made very comfortable and homelike. Now when all seems complete her weary body is laid to rest and her soul goes to meet her Saviour, who has prepared a place for her in Heaven.
She lived a conscientious christian life, her former life being spent as a Luthern and the latter as a Baptist. She was well liked by all of her acquaintences, who with her husband and family, will miss her very much.
A large concourse of people attended the funeral services which were conducted by Rev. Carroll Ghent, pastor of the Elgin Baptist church.
