    1. [S1251] Find A Grave, William Robert Storm.
      William R. Storm of Windsor and his son, Charles E. Storm of Catlin, were killed instantly, the former's brother, T. G. Storm, also of Windsor, was injured so seriously that he died within three hours, and the first named's new limousine was wrecked by being struck by a troop train on the Big Four Saturday afternoon about 5:20 o'clock. Joint funeral services were held at Ash Grove Christian Church, with which all were prominently identified, Monday afternoon. The pastor, Rev. Oscar E. Kelly of Terre Haute, had charge of the services and was ably assisted by Rev. Ross Kern of Catlin and Rev. Geo. A. Reinhardt of Windsor, pastors of the Christian churches of their respective cities. The singing was by the choir of Ash Grove church. Burial was in the respective family lots. It was probably the largest funeral ever held in Eastern Shelby. More than 300 automobiles were counted on the grounds at once, besides the large number of horse drawn vehicles. All three of the victims were so widely known and were held in such high esteem that large numbers from far and near were present to pay their last tribute of respect. William R. Storm was the eldest of the Storm name in this community. He and Tobias G. were sons of Vincent and Lilly Storm and were of the fourth generation of descendants of Peter Storm, the founder of the family in this state. William R., was born May 10, 1845, being the couple's eldest child. his entire life was spent in Eastern Shelby. On Jan. 8, 1863, he was united in marriage with Sarah E. Weeks, who survives him. Ten children were born to them, the surviving children being James M. of Morrisonville, Harry of Chrisman, W. B., Mrs. W. M. Pinnell, and Mrs. J. R. Mooberry of Windsor. He also leaves several grandchildren and great grandchildren. Early in life Mr. Storm united with the Christian church and served Ash Grove congregation as deacon, elder, trustee and minister, preaching the Gospel for 15 years. He served his neighbors in various official capacities, including that of justice, supervisor of both Ash Grove townships, mayor of Windsor, chairman of the county board, and in other positions. After spending several years as a farmer he engaged in the hardware business in Windsor and other Illinois towns but retired a few years ago and gave his time to looking after his extensive real estate holdings. All the brothers, sisters, and children of the three deceased, together with their families, were present at the services. Windsor Gazette - 18 Apr 1918
