    3. Edward E. MOODY EDWARD E. MOODY DEAD SUCCUMED TO HEART TROUBLE AT 9:40 SUNDAY NIGHT. Grew From Boy to Man in Frankfort Where His Friends Were Numerous- The Funeral Arrangements. Edward E. Moody, the popular and well known East Washington street horseshoer, died at his home, 659 Catterlin street, Sunday night at 9:40 o’clock. Mr. Moody had been bedfast since a week ago Saturday, being first attacked by pneumonia. Saturday morning it was thought the ravages of that disease had been checked, but shortly afterwards a fatal heart trouble set in and the end was speedily hastened. The funeral was held from the residence Wednesday morning at 9:30 o’clock conducted by Rev. H. G. Ogden, with interment at Bunnell cemetery. Deceased was the oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Foster M. Moody and was born at Waveland, Montgomery county, June 13, 1868. His parents moved to this city in the seventies while he was yet a mere lad, and from that time to this Frankfort had been his home. He attended the city schools and when old enough to choose a vocation, entered his father’s shop as an apprentice and developed into an expert workman, finally acquiring a partnership in the business and at the time of his last sickness was in full control. June 19, 1893, he was married to Miss Minnie Campbell, who with their little daughter, Fern, survive to share a great sorrow and an irreparable loss. Mrs. Moody has a double bereavement having been called upon during her husband’s illness to bury their youngest child, an infant five weeks old. Besides those of his own household there are surviving his parents, Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Moody, and one brother, Charles Moody. Deceased was a Past Chancellor of Shield Lodge No. 71, Knights of Pythias, a member of Frankfort Lodge No. 560, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks and of the National Association of Master Horseshoers. He was originally a Forrester, in which order he carried $1000 life insurance, but became in active. He had a policy in the K. of P. Endownment Rank for $2000 and was also insured in the Columbia Relief Association, though for what amount is not known. Ed Moody was a young man well liked by all who knew him. He was a slave to industry and a peer among the men of his craft. He was a companionable young man, “a fellow of infinite jest,” and was never more happy than when cracking jokes with his friends to the music of the hammer and anvil. Many of the companions of his mature years were his playmates in childhood- his comrades to the close of his brief career. None will more sincerely mourn his death than those with whom he touched shoulders through the years that complete the epoch of his life. He was an enthusiastic lodge man and nearly as it is possible for one to do fulfilled the obligations of the households of fraternity to which he was admitted.

Moody was held Wednesday at 9:30 o’clock from the family residence on North Catterlin street and was attended by the Elks, Knights of Pythias and many of the deceased’s friends. In the floral orderings as well as the evidences of mourning hearts the popularity of Ed Moody was strongly revealed. The services were conducted by Revs. Ogden and Reece, the music being furnished by a male quartette consisting of Will A. Tull, Frank McKown, Harry Merrill and Guy Swan. The beautiful ritualistic work of the two secret societies was performed, the Elks holding their service at the house and the Knights at the grave. Nat Lockwood, Ward Martin, Nate Fritch, Chas. Cox, Walter Weikle and Dr. R. N. Doyal acted as pall bearers and Charles Spitznagle, Will Clark, Henry Sleeth, Bert Hardy and Booker Alexander as tribute bearers. The floral offerings were profuse and beautiful. Designs were sent by the Elks, Knights of Pythias and the blacksmiths, the latter being a large horseshoe, strikingly typical of Mr. Moody’s profession and a fitting tribute from his fellow craftsmen. There were besides a large number of bouquets from neighbors and friends.
