YORK, Michael
Clark County Herald, May 6, 1874
A very fine monument, in the memory of Michael York, was put up at his grave, last Friday. It is the largest and finest piece of work of the kind, in this locality. It was gotten up by Ricketts, of Charleston, Ills.
Mrs. Rachel York is laying dangerously sick. Her physicians think it very doubtful about her getting well. Dr. Henry of Mattoon who was telegraphed for on Saturday arrived yesterday morning. He thinks there is not much hope for her recovery.

YORK, Rachel
Clark County Herald, May 20, 1874
From Westfield
After a very brief illness, Mrs. Rachel York, wife of the late Michael York, died at her residence in this place, on last Thursday. She was buried in the Westfield Cemetery, on Friday. A large concourse of people followed her remains to their last resting place. Her husband M. York, preceded her only a little over six months, and their son, Calvin, was taken away only a few years since. But two of the family now remain to mourn the death of those they loved,--if possible dearer than their own life.
