BURIED AT MIDNIGHT
Weird Funeral for the Big Woman at Coldwater
COLDWATER, Mich., Aug. 19. All was a weird funeral procession that accompanied the body of Mrs. Frank Whitlock at midnight last night from her home to the cemetery at Batavia station three miles distant. The casket which was made to order to hold Mrs. Whitlock's body did not arrive until 9 p.m. The funeral services were held in the afternoon. Late at night 200 neighbors and friends assembled and forming a procession marched to the cemetery. The body was lowered into the grave about 1 o'clock this morning.
