Death of Dr. D. B. Taylor
At an early hour Monday morning occurred the death of Dr. D. B. Taylor, of Millburn, Ill., an old settler and one who was well known throughout the county. He was a physician of the old school and one who had a thorough knowledge of his chosen profession and in many homes he has been the family physician for years and in these home his kindly words will be severely missed. Several times he decided to give up his practice but each time was prevailed on by his patrons to resume his work and until the time of his death his practice was as large as his advanced years would permit him to attend. His death was very sudden and unexpected the cause being attributed to heart disease.
He was born in the year of 1826, and was past seventy-eight years of age at the time of his death. For many years his home has been in Lake county and his unceasing acts of kindness in times of sorrow has endeared him to many and won for him many steadfast friends.
