"These are from the Rouse History that Mrs Riser and I compiled. She had a lot of the newsclippings cut out of the newspaper. That's why no name of the paper or date on some of these. She is currently in the O'Neill nursing Home." - Doris Counts

Although the obituaries listed here are from Holt County newspapers, the actual deaths and/or burials may have been in other counties or states.

Fleming, Henry
Feb 12,1915 Atkinson Graphic

DEATH OF EARLY SETTLER AND OLD SOLDIER, AGED 94 YEARS

   Like a shock of corn fully ripe for the gleaners, Henry Fleming was gathered to his fathers in the 95th years of his earthly life. The weary watch is over, the tillsome journey done, he has entered into his rest. For him no longer the prison house from which is shut out the light of the sun and the music of the birds. The earthy house of this tabernacle is dissolved. Now is the eternal building.

   Henry Fleming the oldest of seven brothers, was born in Morrow Co, Ohio, Oct 2,1820 and died at the home of his daughter, Mrs John Ingling, Saturday evening, Feb 6,1915, aged 94 years, 4 months 4 days.

   Dec 8,1847 he was united in marriage with Sarah M Holmes. To this union was born 7 children, 3 girls and 4 boys, 3 of the children: and his wife preceded him in death. Mrs Fleming dying May 8,1895.One daughter, Mrs John Ingling, living in Atkinson, one son Perry in Tilden, one son in Los Angeles, Calif and one in Iowa.

   Sept 17,1870 his family left Ohio for Iowa, he following Sept 17,1871. They removed to Nebr, Oct 9,1883, making their home at Atkinson.

   When Lincoln issued his first call for 300,000 volunteers, Mr Fleming enlisted in Co B, 43rd Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry and served 3 years and 3 months. He was a loyal staunch patriot. With heroic love for the flag he marched and fought , wrought and sacrified for his country. All honor to his memory. He will be missed from the GAR circle. Its ranks are thinning fast. The boys in blue are rapidly gathering for the great eternal encampment.

   About 50 years ago the deceased united with the Christian Church back in Ohio. After moving to Iowa, finding no organization of the Christian Church in the community where he located, he united with Baptist Church, upon his removal to Nebr he was united with Presbyterian Church, later receiving a letter from that church.

   Wherever he might live, Mr Fleming cast in his lot with the people of God and thus sought to help in the Kingdom of Christ. Toward the last he had a great longing to depart this life.

   Altho of so great age Mr Fleming had a very retentive memory which served him well and which up until a few days before his departure was unimpaired. For a life well spent what a precious Bon! For the past four years he has been confined to his home. The last trip downtown was four years ago last election day. When he went to the polls to vote. During these years he has been tenderly cared for by his daughter and her family. This fidelity will not go unrewarded, for our heavenly Father knows our endeavors. Besides the above named relatives he leaves many grandchildren, great grandchildren: to mourn his going. Funeral services were conducted by Rev W S York Monday afternoon and interment was made in Woodlawn Cem.

Freed, Alvin John
Jan 22,1915 Atkinson Graphic

May 28,1901- Jan 20,1915

   Alvin, aged about 13 years, son of Mr and Mrs Bert Freed, died at the farm home six miles east of Atkinson on Wednesday, Jan 20. He had been sick about ten days. The funeral services will be held Saturday, at St Joseph Catholic Church.
Feb 5,1915 Atkinson Graphic

   On Friday, the 22nd, Alvin Freed, our happy and cheerful schoolmate, was laid to rest in St Joseph Cemetery. He was born Mary the 28th, 1901, and since St Joseph Hall was built, Alvin has attended school here every year for a longer or shorter period. This year, too, he was planning to return, in order to prepare for confirmation, when a sudden illness prevented him and in a few days snatched him from our midst. All that parental love and medical skill could do, was lavished on the little sufferer, to retain him yet a little while, but God had disposed differently. He loved our Alvin best and took him home.

   In every family He selects one tender bud, one full blossom that He calls before it can mature, so that it may bloom in unfading splendor round the throne of God. Thus He severs a tie on earth, that all may learn to look up to Heaven, where the eternal reunion awaits us. Alvin is gone before us, and we must hasten the moment when he enjoys the beatific vision and can intercede for us.

   He did not shrink with dread from the dark passage, full well he had learned that death is but the Gate of Life, and when he realized his dangerous condition, he asked for his pastor Father Loecker, to receive those sacramental graces, which the church holds out to her children. Tuesday again he wished for his presence to prepare all the better to see his Creator. Wednesday God gave His beloved sleep, and even the stricken parents feel that they may well yield their dearest treasure to such wise, and loving keeping.

   Alvin, with his cheerful disposition and his unselfish willingness to help was truly the sunshine of his home. Especially the aged grandparents: will miss him, who has preceded them like a young herald to meet them, when their call comes. His only sister, Ruth and his little brothers: will keenly feel his loss, or rather the separation. In school too, we regret, not to have him with us and yet his bright example is to us a stimulant to follow steadfastly in the same principles.

   At the funeral the school children: all were present to give their companion the last public tokens of affection. Henry Bauman carried the school banner draped in purple. Six altar boys were pall bearers and attended in white and purple sashes. All children: wore badges of their respective societies. Six little girls carried the floral tokens before the casket and the older pupils sang the beautiful liturgical chant of the requiem. Rev Father Loecker addressed the large assembly of old friends, gathered despite the inclement weather, in a well chosen sermon, coming from and therefore going to the heart.

   When the remains were taken out, the children: sang their favorite hymn, closing with the stanza, which may fitly end this obituary.

While I do my duty
Struggling through the tide.
Whisper thou of beauty
On the Other side.
Tell who will the story
Of our now distress!
Oh, the future glory!
Oh, the loveliness!

DEATH OF AGED PIONEER

   Samuel Francis Hibbard was born Aug 11,1830 in Warsaw, NY. In 1852 he was united in marriage to Miss Margaret Frasier of the same place. Together they met the joys and sorrows for 48 years. She having preceded her companion to the beyond six years ago. To this union were born 3 daughters, Mrs Flora Moore, wife of our townsman, Frank Moore; twin daughters Ella and Emma, who died in their youth.

   The deceased came to Atkinson in 1883 and settled upon a homestead 3 and half miles north of town, where he resided until 7 years ago when he moved to the home in town where he passed away, Dec 28,1916.

   Mr Hibbard was a cheerful, hopeful man, respected by a large number of friends for his uprightness and integrity. He will be missed by many who have learned to love him because of his admirable traits, but most by the only surviving daughter, Mrs Frank Moore, who has never been separated from her father further than to live across the road from him.

   The funeral service was conducted from Methodist Church, Saturday. Interment was made in Woodlawn Cemetery.

The victim of this suicidal mania had evidently, fastened the rope to the outside door knob, placed it over the top of the door, closed it and after adjusting the noose to his neck, jumped off a bed near by, and shuffled off hsi mortal coil with no one near to interfere with his determined purpose.

   In material financial resources, Mr Johnson, was in no manner dependent, He was out of debt, had fifty head of cattle and $485 in cash was found in the hosue. He had been considered slightly demented for the past four months. Seven children: survive him.
