Pvt. Thomas Shannon, of Co. Clare, Ireland died of wounds.

Thomas Crehen left yesterday for Co.

Body brought from Kentucky home found rich kinsman 4 years ago.

Athens, PA.  March 5, 1915.  The body of John T. Markham of Hopkinsville, KY was buried here today being conveyed from the South in a private car of Charles H. Markham, President of the Illinois Central Railroad, a brother.
The accidental discovery four years ago by the aged Kentucky bricklayer that his long lost brother was the head of a great railroad system attracted nationwide attention.
John T. Markham was born 76 years ago in Co. Clare, Ireland.  When a child came with his family to Clarksville, TN.  Enlisting in the Confederate Army, he fought throughout the Civil War.  When he returned to Clarksville the family had moved away.
Four years ago he saw in the papers that Charles H. Markham, President of the Pittsbury & Gulf Refining Company of Pittsburg, had been elected President of the Ilinois Central Railroad and wrote him a letter asking him if he were a relative.  President Markham immediately called him up by telephone and the fact that they were brothers was established.
Uncle John Markham, as he was affectionately known, spent his last years with every luxury at his command.
