Paul Palmer Harlan
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1870
Death: May 8, 1887
Sangamon County
Illinois, USA

Died, at his home in this city, on Sunday, May 8, 1887, of typhoid fever, Paul Palmer Harlan, aged 16 years, 11 months, 21 days. Funeral today from the residence of his mother, Mrs. Mary C. Harland.

Paul Harlan was the son of Mrs. Mary C. Harlan, widow of the late Gen. E. B. Harlan, in his life time one of our most respected citizens. Although so young, Paul gave great promise of future usefulness. He was engaged in the study of law, being under the tutelage of Messrs. Palmers & Shutt. He was also a member of the Governor's guard and a great favorite with his comrades, who will conduct the ceremonies connected with his burial today.

He formerly attended school at Orchard Lake military academy, Mich., and while there maintained an honorable standing in his class. He will be sadly missed by his friends in the Guard and in the social circle, but above all at home, where he was the pride and hope of a fond mother's heart and an object of fond affection to all.
