ST. CLOUD TRIBUNE, Thursday, February 12, 1920, front pg.


        St. Cloud has mourned the loss of two good citizens this week as perhaps never before in it history, for the whole city was shocked to learn of the sudden death of Dr. E. G. Farris, a pioneer citizen, on Friday morning of last week, just after word had been received late Thursday of the death of Maurice Johnson, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Johnson, of this city.
        The prominence of Dr. Farris, who had reached an advanced age, and the popularity and youth of Maurice Johnson, makes these two deaths felt keenly in this community, where both had become such a fixture in the hearts of our citizens.
        Dr. Esom G. Farris was born in Knox County, Ky., January 14, 1844, the son of Cornelius G. And Nancy Farris, and died of chronic pneumonia Feb. 6, 1920, at 2 a. m. at the age of 76 years and 23 days.
        He was one of a family of ten children, five boys and five girls. He left surviving him one brother, James F. Farris, and two sisters, Mrs. Mary E. Gatliff and Mrs. Sarah M. Cutbirth.
        His childhood was spent on his father's farm in Kentucky, and at the beginning of the Civil war he enlisted at the age of 17, in Company F., 32d Kentucky Infantry, Union Army. After returning home from the army he went to live with his brother, James F. Farris, in Indiana, and soon after entered school. After completing common school he attended the Normal College at Lebanon, Ohio, and Valpariso, Ind. He then graduated from the Central Normal College at Danville, Ind. He then took up the study of medicine and graduated from the Rush Medical college at Chicago, having worked and paid his own way through. He then entered the practice of medicine and followed that profession until his death.
        At the age of 41 he married Sadie Brundrant of Greencastle, Ind., and shortly afterward they moved to Conway Springs, Kansas, where they lived happily together until 1895, the date of her death. They had no children. However, he raised one nephew, Dr. Clarence Gillis, and his niece, Maud Gillis, sister of Dr. Clarence Gillis, had kept house for Dr. Farris since his wife's death.
        He was a faithful member of the Baptist church since childhood and was always a kind and willing worker.
        He was a member of the Masonic lodge, and also a member of the G. A. R. for many years, having been on the examining board for soldiers' pensions in Kansas and Florida for more than twenty years. HE served two terms in the Kansas legislature as State representative.
        In 1909 he removed to St. Cloud, Fla., and had put forth every effort toward the betterment of this little city and the uplift of the community in general. HE gave his services willingly right up to the date of his death, and did not give up until severe pain and weakness overcame him.
        His death means an awful shock and sorrow to this community as well as to his thousands of friends elsewhere, and all will miss him more than words can express.
        Dr. Farris was buried Tuesday morning in Mt. Peace cemetery, after a funeral service conducted in the G. A. R. hall by Rev. O. B. Falls, pastor of the Baptist church at Kissimmee.
        The G. A. R. hall was insufficient to accommodate the large gathering of friends of Dr. Farris that desired to attend the funeral services, and people were crowded around each window to hear the last words of the minister at the final service.
        The pallbearers were N. L. Edwards, J. K. Conn, S. W. Porter, R. G. Reynolds, H. C. Hartley and C. P. Coyle. Eiselstein Brothers prepared the body for burial and made all the funeral arrangements.

Esom G Farris was 73 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
