In the year, l87l, he moved with his parents from Ohio to Decatur County, and the greater part of his life was spent in this county. He was known by all for his kind-heartedness and his generous disposition. Ever ready to lend a helping hand, in time of need. He was a lover of home, and was always happy, when surrounded by his children and grandchildren. All was done that loving hands could do to relieve his suffering, but to no avail.
And on Christmas day, surrounded by ones he loved so well, the death angel called him home where suffering is no more.
Funeral services were held in the home, Dec. 27, l923, at 2 o'clock. Interment in the Leon Cemetery. A quartet composed of Mrs. Fisher, Mrs. Elwell, Lester Hutchinson and Floyd Cozad, furnished the music.
