Passed to His Reward. T)r. A. K. Kcllnr. (or fifty year* a practicing physician, ;ind during his whole life an upright ('hristi;in ^entle- man, died yesterday morning at 5:20 o'clock at the home of hi* rlan^litor, Mrs. K. O. Thomason, on Cypress avenue. Had lie lived iii.'til Der.emh'-r 20th he would have been H2 years old. Since coming to ('.ovina he: has been practically in retirement, although assisting materially in the Christian work of the community. The funeral will be i held at .1 o'clock on Sunday afternoon :it the Christian church, Rev. J. W. 1 ' of Los Angeles, a f >rmer piistor hr?re, ofh'ci.'it intf, assisted by Rev. Mr. : Conley. The subject of this sketch was born in Oldham county, Kentucky, 1H miles from thi' city of Louisvilli-, on December 16, 1K27. Died at Covina, Cal., September 11th, l')OH. J)r Kellar wan the youngest of a family of ei^ht children. In 1852 his father's family moved from Kentucky to Central Illinois, now Moiiltrie county. Dr. Kellar received for his time, an exceptionally ^oorl education in liacon College, Harrod.s- burtf, Kentucky, and graduated from the medical department of the University of Louisville in 1851. In 1H52 he began practicing medicine in Decatur, III., where in the same, year he married Jane 1C. Cantrill. Of this union eight children were born, of whom but three ark now living, Kdgar II. Kellar, a minister of a Christian Church in Los Angeles, Mrs. Klrner (). Thomason of Covina, and Mrs. R. C. Fleming of Springfield, III. Dr. A. L. Kellar became a Christian when 1.1 years of age and in 1H51 was ordained a minister in the Christian church, fie practiced the healing art for both body and soul, and there was no bolter or more favorably known person in Central Illinois, than Dr. A. h. Kellar. He performed nobly his part in the laying of the foundations of the present prosperous counties of Mucori, Shelby and Mmillrie. In IH'J'i, his wife havinx'died and all his children married. Dr. Kellar removed from his old home in Sullivan. Hi., to California where he has since lived except for occasional visits to the scenes of his former labors, lu California he has made his home with his daughter Mrs. K. O, Thomason. In Ihu forty-four years from '52 to '% Dr. Kellar had an immense practice which could have been lucrative had th>- doctor been a good collector, or had he confined his practice to the well-to- do members of the community. Probably no person performed as many marriage ceremonies or preached aa many funeral discourses in theae years in Central Illinois as Dr. Kellar. He lived and died a comparatively poor man; rich, however, in the esteem of his fellowmen, and with untarnished integrity of character. "How beautiful it is for man to die Upon the walls of X<ion!
