Obituary -- (Findagrave.com):

Carroll County Mirror, 21 October 1897

SAMUEL PRESTON - Died, at his home on Preston Prairie, October 16, 1897, Samuel Preston, aged 78 years, 10 months, 24 days. The immediate cause of his death was from taking a severe cold, settling in the vital organs of the body, which from age had become weakened until unable to throw off its effects, and death ensued.

Mr. Preston was born in Hampshire County, Massachusetts in 1818. In 1835 he came to Bureau county, Illinois, with his father and remained there until the next year when he came to this county and took up the land which has since been the homestead of the Preston family and from which the Prairie takes its name. Their claim was the first taken up in what is now Carroll township.

In 1844 he was married to Miss Sarah A. Garrett of Bureau county, and to this union five children were born, to-wit: Ellen E., Harriett, A., Ann M., Arthur G., and Laura, all of whom are married and all survive their parents. The mother died nearly two years ago and her death had a depressing effect on her aged husband, although he had a pleasant home with his son Arthur and family at the old homestead.

Mr. Preston being one of the earliest settlers naturally took an interest in making the history of Carroll county, and was identified with all its public improvements and general welfare. He was a student of events and was quite an able writer on general topics, political, moral, and to a degree on religious subjects. He expressed his thoughts freely through the medium of his favorite county paper. Mr. Preston was a pattern of moral integrity, never using intoxicating liquors, tobacco or profane language.

He was trusted by his friends and neighbors, who nearly always put him forward for the discharge of public duties. He was for eight years supervisor of his township, and was a leading member of the board. For a number of years commissioner of highways and as school director and school trustee was always active in promoting the interests of the trusts committed to him with zeal and fidelity. He was president of our county agricultural society during its balmiest days.

His pet society however was the County Old Settlers Society of which he was president and the largest contributor to its literary and historical interests. When his demise is read by the old settlers many a silent tear will be shed and a sign follow with the thought others will soon follow.

The funeral was held at the homestead Tuesday morning at ten o'clock with appropriate religious services conducted by Rev. Joseph P. Phillips of the Baptist church. The music was furnished by Mrs. Etta J. Smith, Kate Rosenstock, Capt. Becker and John S. Grove. Services opened by prayer; song, "Gathering home, One by One," reading of Mr. Preston's favorite psalm, the 19th, song, "Lead Thou Me On." Then followed a most excellent and comforting sermon from the words of Isiah: "God we all do fade as the leaf," holding up the thought that the leaf never falls until it has left a substance for a successor; that while all things in nature are passing away, yet they remain the same. "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth its handiwork the same now as in the beginning." The sermon closed with prayer and singing "Blest Be The Tide That Binds." The procession took up its line to march to Oak Hill.
