Death of Henry Shadley (Irvin Smock's sister's husband)
In The Evening Republican Monday was briefly noted the death of Henry Shadley, a man who will be greatly missed from the circle in which he was wont to move. Mr. Shadley was an old and esteemed citizen of Meadville, a quiet, gentleman and a man whom everybody like who knew him. He passed away at his home, No. 448 Poplar Street, about 4:30 Monday morning after somewhat lingering illness, and he is survived by is aged wife, two sons, Ralph Henry and George Edward; one brother Frank, and one sister, Mrs. Robert Mulrainy, all of Meadville. He was a member of St. Paul's Reformed Church.
The following regarding Mr. Shadley is written by C.M. Boush, Esq., who thus feelingly pays his tribute to the memory of an old friend:

He was born in Rhine, Bavaria, Germany, and came here in 1852, when he was 7 years of age, with his father, Anthony Shadley, who brought with him a family of seven children. Soon after I came here, in 1853, I became acquainted with Anthony Shadley, a man fine neighborly disposition, industrious and frugal.
The family lived in Meadville a few years an then located on a farm in Union Township, where Mr. Shadely reared his family, and where all the children grew up to be good and industrious citizens. Henry, with whom I became well acquainted, was in character and all his ways very much like his father, and he was a fine man. He married into the respectable Smock family, and leaves as his widow a woman who has many friends to sympathize with her in her bereavement. He also leaves two sons, Ralph and Charles, who are following in the footsteps of their father's amiable and useful habits; and will now be reliable support for their aged mother. One son died in infancy.
Henry Shadley, of whom I write, died a good Christian and a good citizen. He was a consistent member of (nothing is written here. Then it is written twice...)
