Note:

a) Fred Vodden of Sycamore, left on Sunday morning, December 5 for England, where he planned to surprise a brother, Albert Vodden, whom he hadnot seen for nearly 50 years. A few days ago word was received in this city stating that the brother had died on November 23. Fred Vodden not hearing of the death until he arrived in England for the contemplated Christmas surprise on his brother.
Mr. Vodden, in addition to the brother who arrived a short time ago in England, leaves to mourn his death two sisters in this city, Mrs. John Jones and Mrs. William Tucker and a number of nieces and nephews. Albert Vodden was the only member of the family remaining in England.
The death of his brother was doubly sad for Fred Vodden who lost his wife and a brother in this city within the last year.
(Presumably from a DeKalb paper where the sisters lived. The newspaper clipping, in possession of Wayne Henderson, is yellowed with age.)
