Capt. Champ C. Conner died at his apartment in the Fortner Hotel in this city at an early hour, following two severe heart attacks, the first of which was on Thursday afternoon. Though he had been in failing health for sometime, he had not been confined to his bed, and his friends and loved ones did not anticipate that the end would come so soon. They realized that owing to his advance age, he could not withstand many more such attacks as those he had been subjected to of late, but they hoped his life might be spared for many years to come. He had lived to a ripe age, lacking only 10 days of being 89 years old, born in Madison County, VA, on April 21, 1841. When a mere youth, he came with his parents to Tennessee. His father, for whom he is named, was one of the first pastors of Ripley Baptist Church. Prior to moving to St. Louis about 15 years ago, Capt. Conner was a bookkeeper for Wm. Tucker Co., Campbell & Keltner and later on a member of Campbell & Conner. He is survived by one daughter, Mrs Kenneth Gardner, of St. Louis; and two sons, Champ C. Conner, of St. Louis and Phil Conner, of Chicago. He was preceded in death by his wife. Interment in Maplewood Cemetery.
