Pioneer Resident of Old Irvington Dies of Pneumonia at Yates Center, Kansas, February 5th.
Word came to Link Singleton last week of the death of a former resident and pioneer of Irvington township, Mr. Z.C. Andruss, who at one time owned and resided on the place now owned by A.P. Ives. Mr. Andruss died at Yates Center, Kansas, where he and his wife had lived for the past seven year, on February 5, of pneumonia. He was 72 years old and leaves a wife and one daughter, Mrs. Luella Dilts, who lives at Randolph, Iowa, where the body was taken for burial. Mrs. Andruss, who is quite feeble, will make her home with her daughter. Mr. Andruss was one of the prominent and respected men of this country twenty-five years ago. He was always a great friend of Mr. Singleton who as a boy was employed by him for some time. Many of the older residents will remember Mr. and Mrs. Andruss and their charming daughter, Miss Luella.
