========================
DEATH  OF  ALBERT  WOOD
------------------
A Man of Strong Religious and Moral Views
Passes to His Reward.
------------------
          Albert Wood died at his residence on North West street at 11:30 p.m. Thursday, March 25, 1897, aged forty-nine years.  Mr. Wood never was a strong man and for the last year or two has been threatened with the loss ofhis eye-wight and his general health had been failing for the past six months, which ended in an acute attack of stomach trouble which hastened his death.
          Mr. Wood was born in Richmond, Ohio, and was married to Anna E. Govers at Madison, Ind., in April, 1881, from which place he moved to this city in the spring of 1883, when he engaged in the coopering business and continued to the present time.  Mr. Wood was a man of exceedingly strong convictions on all moral and religious questions and his daily life and conversation so fully in accord with his profession, that he was almost an unique character in the community.  If his views, religious and moral, were extreme, he lived them out; and while his business and his habits brought him contact with people very largely during his life in Shelbyville, no breath of suspicion ever tainted his reputation for perfect consistency.  His honesty was proverbial, and at his death he owned no man a cent.  While he was only in easy circumstances financially, he was a liberal giver to benevolent objects and many a poor home has been made richer and happier by his visits, for he found time from a busy life "to visit the sick and fatherless," and in his last conscious moments he asked that one hundred dollars might be given out of his estate to the Southern Freedmen Aid and Education Society.  He united with the Methodist church at Madison, Ind., under the pastorate of the Rev. Charles Tinsley, he being at that time pastor of Trinity church.  This was in 1877.  At the time of his death Mr. Wood was one of the active and influential members of the First M.E. church, this city.  Mr. Wood leaves his widow and three children surviving, with their neat home, the cooper shop property and a couple of thousand dollars of life insurance money, an honored name and the deep sympathy of the entire community in their sad affliction.
          The funeral services were held at the home on North West street, Saturday afternoon at half past two o'clock, by Rev. J. R. T. Lathrop.  The interment was made at Forest Hill cemetery.
