"The funeral of William S. Atwood took place this forenoon at 10 o'clock from his late residence on east Third street. It was well attended. The services were conducted by the Rev. J. S. McIntyre of the Fourteenth street Methodist church and were very impressive indeed. The pall bearers were all old friends of the deceased. They were T.W. McClelland, James Thompson, E.P. Sackett, Henry Dorman, Paul Dentsch, and S.A. Bishop, the only survivor of the Seminole war and army comrade of Mr. Atwood residing in the city. The interment was in Oakdale."
