John Osgood

Last Thrusday evening Mr. John Osgood, one of the oldest and best known passenger conductors on the Lake Shore road, died at his home in Elkhart, from a complication of diseases. He had been ailing for months, and at times was very sick, but was able on the Sunday previous, to take his train to Chicago. He was unable to make the return trip, and was brought home in a Pullman. Mr. Osgood was a prominent Mason and Odd Fellow. The funeral occurred last Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, at the Episcopal church under the auspices of the Knights of Templars of that city. A special went over the Lake Shore carrying members of the Masonic and Odd Fellows Lodges, to the funeral, and from Chesterton Sir John Williams, and Sir Chas. Kettle and John Coulter, went as representatives of the lodges here.
