DR. C.S. SAVAGE HEAT VICTIM
Aged Physician Dies at the Home of his Son in Galena
Dr. Charles S. Savage died yesterday afternoon at 5 o’clock after an illness of three weeks. He was overcome by heat at his office about three weeks ago and was taken to the home of his son, Dr. H.S. Savage, where he gradually became weaker until his death occurred. His only complaint for several days before his death was of being tired. He died at the age of 83 years old.
Dr. Savage was born in Germantown, Ky, December 8, 1829, and is the last of twelve children born to his parents, Mr, and Mrs. James Savage. He moved from Germantown ten years ago and Galena has been his home since that time. Last December his only surviving sister died at the age of 96.
Dr. Savage had been a member of the Methodist church since he came to Galena, having transferred his membership from the church where he lived before coming here.
He is surivived by his son, Dr. Harry B. Savage, of this city, who will leave tonight to accompany the body to his old home in Germantown for burial. No funeral services will be held here.
