Chicago Press and Tribune of Tuesday, July 3, 1860
On Sunday morning, at two o'clock, at the residence of his son at Cleaverville, Charles Cleaver, Sr., in the 79th year of his age.
As a shock of corn, fully ripe for the harvest, so he was cut down and taken from among us. He leaves a large family to mourn his departure having moved into the country in the year 1838, with fourteen children, all of whom survive him--and would desire to pay this slight tribute to his memory. He was a native of England, in the metropolis of which he was born, and was for many years extensively engaged in business, where, in prosperity as in adversity, when it came, he was always known as a man of the strictest integrity. Of his residence in Chicago, and for the past twenty years on his farm near Waukegan, we need not speak further, as his numerous acquaintances and neighbors willingly testify to his honest and upright life. He was a loving husband, and a sincere and affectionate father, and a sincere friend. May we all copy his virtues, and like him, trusting in the merits of his Saviour, long for that rest that is promised to the people of God.
