Death takes father of Mrs. George P. Magill [James Ogilvie]
Wilmette Life (Wilmette, Illinois), 26 Aug 1927, p. 2

Full Text

Dr. and Mrs. George P. Magill were summoned to Kankakee, Ill., this week because of the fatal illness of Mrs. Magill's father, James Ogilvie, 95 years of age, the oldest resident of Kankakee county. Mr. Ogilvie passed away Wednesday afternoon. He had been in failing health for several months, the results of a fall in which he suffered a fractured hip.

Services will be held this afternoon, Dr. Magill officiating. Pallbearers will be grandsons of the pioneer Illinoisan, among whom is James F. Magill, son of Dr. and Mrs. Magill.

Mr. Ogilvie came to Illinois from the East in 1866, traveling across country in a Prairie Schooner or covered wagon. He settled on a 160-acre farm in Kankakee county and continued farming until about 20 years ago when he moved into Kankakee.

Mr. and Mrs. Ogilvie celebrated their 66th wedding anniversary last march [sic]. Both retained a remarkable vigor despite their advanced years, Mr. Ogilvie never having been seriously ill prior to the accident which hastened his death.

Surviving Mr. Ogilvie are the widow, three daughters, Mrs. George P. Magill, Mrs. E. J. Steward of Kankakee, and Miss Sallie Ogilvie of Kankakee, and one son, George Ogilvie of California.
