Waveland Independent, Nov 15, 1918 -- Frank Z. McNutt, the fifth victim of influenza, in this community, died at an early hour on Sunday morning, after an illness of nearly two weeks. From the beginning the disease assumed a grave type and hope for his recovery was given up some time before his death. Funeral services at the home of M/M Samuel McNutt, E. of town on Monday afternoon were conducted by Rev. JT Boyer. Interment at the Presbyterian Cemetery. Frank Z. McNutt was born Aug 12, 1885, the oldest son of Samuel and Sarah McNutt. He was married to Miss Irene Hitch Sept 5, 1906 to which union 3 children were born: Margaret, Darwin and Joseph. His entire life was spent in this community, where he was loved and respected by all who knew him. At an early age he united with the Presb. Church of this place, of which he was a member until his death. On Oct 28th he was stricken with the influenza which developed pneumonia and after several days of almost unbearable suffering, which he bore with patience, on the morning of Nov. 10 his spirit was released from his earthly body and took its flight to the home beyond. Those present from a distance were: M/M RW Allen; Rex Simpson and Louis Jones of Crawfordsville; Miss Margaret McNutt of Terre Haute and John Hitch of Darlington. Mr. McNutt was universally liked and was to be depended on or any public activity. It was largely owing to his efforts that the flag staff was raised here, and the fine flag which he donated was hoisted at half mast during the funeral. He was an active member of the KP fraternity. He engaged in various business enterprises, conducting a store at Milligan and latterly engaging int he drug business here. The entire family was ill with the disease at the time. Two of the children have recovered, but Mrs. McNutt and Darwin are in a critical condition.
