Jacob Fick Dead

Jacob Fick, of Chester township, brother of George, Philip and Wm. Fick of this city, died Sunday at his home beyond Chester from the effect of cancer on his face which has given him much trouble for the past year.
Deceased was 59 years old and was a soldier in the war of the Rebellion being only 15 years old when he enlisted and was the youngest man in his regiment.  After the war he settled down to farming in Chester township and was one of the substantial tillers of the soil in that township.
About a year ago he developed an ugly cancer of the face, and went to Columbus in the spring to have it treated by an eminent specialist from that city, but he received no benefit and for sometime his friends and relatives have had no hopes of his recovery.
He was one of a family of fourteen children, nine of whom survive him as follows:  Philip and George Fick of this city, William, of Middleport; John, of Murray City, Mrs. Joseph Ruschel of Hickman, Pa, Mrs. William Guinther and Mrs. Jacob Mayer of this city and Mrs. John Grueser of Minersville.
He was buried Wednesday in the Chester cemetery, the funeral being held at his late home conducted by Rev. Klindworth of this city.  He leaves a widow and nine children, four sons and five daughters.
