April 7,1916 Atkinson Graphic

INFANT SON OF H ANDERSON DIES

   The pastor of the Presbyterian Church was called to officiate at the funeral of Karl, infant son of Mr. Hans Anderson. This was an unusually sad service, due to the fact that the mother of the little one died but 3 weeks before. The baby had never been in robust health. A short service was held at the home on Monday and its little form was borne to the cemetery and laid to rest beside the body of its mother.

    The sympathy of the entire community goes out to this father and his home, so sorely afflicted.

Bloom, Frederick P
April 3,1903 Atkinson Graphic

   Coroner Trueblood was called to Stuart last Saturday afternoon to hold an inquest upon the remains of Frederick P Bloom, who was found dead in his home 5 miles from that place Saturday morning. Deceased was an old soldier and lived alone upon his farm. The body was found lying in about a foot of water with a bullet hole in the side of the head. The rooms of the house were smeared with blood indicating that he lived some time after firing the fatal shot, possibly a couple of days. He attempted to wipe up the blood from the floor and had gone to the flour barrel and put flour on the wound as though attempting to staunch the flow of blood. The revolver was found in his pocket. The coroners jury found it to be a case of suicide. Deceased was subject to fits and was at times mentally unbalanced the result of an injury received some years ago. He came to this county from Butler County about a year ago and has a wife and family living near David City.

Sept 19,1902 Atkinson Graphic

   Mrs. Susie Calhoun was the beloved wife of Charles F Calhoun to whom she was married four years ago. She came from O'Neill and married Mr. Calhoun. In her home she was greatly beloved and as Susie Uttley, her maiden name, she numbered her friends only by the list of those who knew her. She leaves in this city, besides her husband, 2 children, the fruits of her marriage, to mourn her loss. Her mother arrived from O'Neill yesterday and was with her when she died, as was her brother who came from Sturgis.

   The above from a Deadwood paper will be a cause of sorrow to many friends who were acquainted with the deceased before her removal to Deadwood.

Dec 6,1901 Atkinson Graphic

   In the recent deaths of Timothy Cross and John D Nightengale, Atkinson and vicinity has lost two of their most useful and respected citizens. They were among the first settlers in Holt Co, and by their industry and sterling qualities contributed much toward the present prosperous and settled condition of our town and community. They were good citizens in every respect; honest, industrious, and consistent members of the Catholic Church. It is expected that more extended obituary notices will appear in this paper in the near future.

TIMOTHY CROSS

   Timothy Cross, deceased, was born County Rosecommon, Ireland, Feb 10,1832. At the age of 19 years, he went to Whitwick, Lelcestershire, England, where he married Hannah Nester in 1853. This union 5 children were born, Michael and John in England, Richard, Mary and Anna, after the family came to Penn in 1865, arriving there at the close of the Civil War, where they resided at Wilkes Barre, Penn, until coming to Holt Co in April 1877, at the solicitation of Gen John O'Neill, who was most instrumental in the early settlement of Holt and other counties of this state.

   The deceased was one of the first to settle in this part of the county, when only a treeless plain was endless to the view, rendered wild and fascinating by countless deer and antelope and fearful and weird by the appearance, ever and anon of Indians in quest of game.

   His 24 years of residence here was principally given to farming and stock raising and doing much toward the up building of Atkinson and vicinity by way of permanent improvements.

   He was a sufferer for many years with bronchial asthma and during the past 4 years, he was infrequently attacked with asthmatic strangulation which caused suffocation unless instantly relieved by relaxing remedies. One of these attacks, accompanied with heart failure, was the cause of his sudden death, which occurred Nov 27,1901.

   Interment was made in Catholic Cem. at this place, after appropriate services at the catholic church of which he was a devoted member, striving to live always in the spirit and harmony of words, "Do unto others as ye would that they should do unto you".

   She went to Omaha July 5 to undergo what was considered a slight operation. This was performed July 7 and she passed away the next morning.

   Miss Lola was an active member of the M E Church and a teacher in the Sabbath School and Junior League. She was not only the light and idol of the family household but greatly admired and beloved by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. Bright, generous and amiable, her cheerful smile and ernest, innocent life will long and sweetly dwell in the memory of her affectionate relatives and fond associates. She was especially loved and admired by her schoolmates and teachers, being a member of the high school 10th grade. She was devoted to her home life, entering into the closest companionship with her parents, and making the home atmosphere sweet and sunny with her bright and cheery presence, loving sight of her own suffering in solitude for the comfort and happiness of others.

   Funeral services were held in the M E Church. The floral offerings were beautiful. 6 girl friends acted as pallbearers. The remains were laid to rest in Woodlawn Cem.

AFTER THREE YEARS
CLARK GUY DIES FROM A SHOT IN THE HEAD RECEIVED 3 YEARS AGO

   On Monday of this week about 5 am at Finniger's ranch near Emmett Clark Guy was taken suddenly and seriously ill and died on Tuesday about 9 am.

   Funeral services were held at the home of his sister Mrs. J S White in this city yesterday at 10 and the remains laid to rest in the cemetery west of town.

   About 3 years ago Mr. Guy was shot through the head and his recovery from an almost necessarily fatal wound at that time was considered marvelous by medical authorities. However, it seems that the old wound caused an abscess to form inside his head, the bursting of which caused his death at this time.

   He was born in Washington Co, Ohio Oct 22,1871 being 31 years 1 month 17 days of age at his death. He came to Holt Co when 9 years old. His parents Mr. and Mrs. H T Guy lived at Carthage, Mo, 1 sister Mrs. J S Whith, lives in Atkinson, his other sisters are Mrs. Myrtle Engles of Ballard, Mrs. Tillie Staring of Powell, Mrs. Ida Miner of Wayne. Deceased was never married nor identified with any church.

   Relatives of the deceased desire to express their thanks to the friends and neighbors who assisted and sympathized with them in their bereavement.

ANNA FRANCES HITCHCOCK

   Anna Frances Hitchcock, aged 15 years, died at her home five miles east of Atkinson on April 24,1902. Born Sept 30,1887 at Atkinson and has always resided in this vicinity among friends that she had known from earliest childhood. Just in the springtime of young womanhood, just when life seemed fairest and brightest, death came and claimed her for his own.

   She was ill but 6 short days, and death coming so suddenly , so unexpectedly, rendered a severe blow to the sorrowing family, who cannot be reconciled to the thought that "What is their loss is her gain".

   The angel has guided her over the dark river and placed her in the waiting arms of her mother. She leaves a loving father, 4 brothers, 2 sisters, to mourn her loss. The funeral services were held at the old home a large concourse of friends followed her remains to their last resting place.

Johnson, Col Benjamin White
March 6,1903 Atkinson Graphic

BENJAMIN WHITE JOHNSON

   Benjamin White Johnson was born near Brownsville, Penn on Jan 23,1822 and was but one year old when the family moved to Stark Co, Ohio, at that time the frontier of civilization.

   He was married to Mary L Spears on the first of May 1851 and to their union were born 3 daughters and 1 son. 2 of the daughters are dead, one, Flora D Potter, being buried in Ohio and the other, Stella Johnson in Iowa. The other daughter is Mrs. India L Walker of Atkinson and the son is James K Johnson of San Francisco.

   Colonel Johnson's life was one of remarkable activity and usefulness, marked with substation of services both public and private. In early life he secured an academic education and afterwards taught school in Ohio, Kentucky and Penn, using the money thus earned to pay expenses while studying law in the office of his uncle in the town of California, Pennsylvania. When the war broke out he closed his law office to become lieutenant Colonel of the 111th Ohio Infantry. Also during this period he was a conductor on the famous underground railroad, running from Louisville to Cleveland, and many a poor black man owes life and freedom to Col Johnson and his friends.

   At the close of the war he followed the tide of emigration westward and helped to lay out the town site of Marshalltown, Iowa, and served as its mayor. He served as representative from Marshall County and was later nominated for governor, but was defeated on account of his temperance sentiments. He was an ardent advocate of temperance and made fifty eight speeches on that subject during one campaign in Iowa. He possessed a remarkable oratorical talent, and was much sought for on special occasions, having delivered fifty six fourth of July orations during his life time, and shortly before his death he said he only wished to live to deliver four more to make it an even sixty.

   An idea of Col Johnson's span of life, his experiences and his consequent powers of interesting retrospection may be had from the simple fact, as stated by him, that he saw the hole dug and the first telegraph pole erected on the continent.

   Mr. Johnson was reared among the Quakers and their teachings made a powerful impression on him. Throughout his life he was foremost in active philanthropy and his acts of generosity would fill a volume, and yet, before death he said that he had been paid three found for every kind act he ever performed.

   He moved with his family to Holt County in July 1883 and had been a resident here ever since, active in all things tending to the good of the greatest number, and respected and esteemed by all. He was postmaster and although nearly 82 years old was an active real estate dealer up to the time of his last sickness which resulted in death at 7 o'clock Monday morning, March 2. The funeral and burial occurred from the opera house Wednesday and was universally attended, especially by the old soldiers, who mourn the loss of their beloved comrade who has preceded them a short space into the Great Beyond.

   To his beloved wife, the companion of his earthly struggles for nearly fifty two years, and to his other relatives is extended the sympathy of all friends, whose grief indeed is scarce less than their own; for to know Col Johnson was to admire and esteem him.

   He died as he had lived a consistent Christian gentleman, exemplifying the good that may be wrought by a human life properly directed. He is dead, but the influence of his stalwart Christian manhood and unselfish life will live and bear fruit through years to come. He has gone to his well earned reward. May he rest in peace unto the day when his soul shall rise to eternal glory.

   O'Neill Frontier- A Kittendorf, a farmer residing upon the Red Bird, about 6 miles northeast of this city, was found frozen to death in a snow drift along side a wire fence about a mile from home at 10 o'clock last Saturday morning. The body being found by his son, a young man about 18 years of age. Deceased left home last Wednesday morning to come to town to make a few holiday purchases and reached this city about 1 o'clock. On account of the impassable condition of the roads, he did not bring his team but walked to town. John D Kelley, who lives 2 ½ miles this side of Kittendorf's was in town about four o'clock. Kittendorf was in the best of health and told Mr. Kelley that he would have no trouble going the 2 ½ miles to his home and at once started for there. This was the last seen of him until his lifeless body was discovered by his son at 10 o'clock last Saturday morning. When he left home Wednesday he informed hi family that he might possibly stay in town that night so they felt no uneasiness when he failed to return Christmas Day or night. The family became alarmed and late Friday afternoon his son started to look for him. Just about dusk the boy found his tracks but the horse playing out he was forced to abandon the search until Saturday morning when he took the trail and soon discovered the body. Deceased had traveled about a mile and from Kelley's but had wandered from the road and the body was found nearly 2 miles from his home.

   After finding the body the boy rode to Kelley's and accompanied by John D Kelley, came to town and notified the coroner. Coroner Trueblood and undertaker McCafferty went and brought the body to town where an inquest was held.

   Deceased leaves a wife and four children to mourn his decline.

Logan, Emma Ruth Coe
April 5,1900 Atkinson Plain Dealer

   Emma Ruth Coe was born Mt Gilead, Morrow Co, Ohio, July 27,1840 and died at the home of her daughter Mrs. Jennie Deitrech, 285 92nd St Chicago, Ill, March 29,1900 at 9 pm, her age being 57 years, 8 months and 2 days. She was married to William Logan March 8,1855 and was the mother of 3 children, Mrs. H A Allen of this city, Mrs. Jennie Deitrech of Chicago, Ill and L W Logan of Kansas City, Mo. All of whom survive her. In 1865 she moved with her husband to Wis. And in 1885 moved to Atkinson in which community she lived until a few weeks previous to her death. On Feb 14 last she went to Chicago to visit her daughter, thinking perhaps the change might be beneficial but nothing could relieve her. She struggled hard to live, but was overpowered by disease.

   Early in life she was converted and united with the Methodist Church. For at least 40 years she was an ardent Christian worker. The funeral was held from the home of Mr. H. A. Allen, Sunday morning. A large concourse of friends assembled to pay their last respects to one they loved. Her remains were laid to rest in the Woodlawn Cem., beside the body of her husband who died last July.

Manson, Mrs.
April 19,1907 Atkinson Graphic

   Mrs. Manson died Sunday, April 7 and was buried Tuesday from the Leonie Church. Mrs. Manson had been ill with a dropsically trouble since last September and had suffered almost constantly. Her daughter from Kansas, who with the other non resident daughters, were here in the winter, came back a few days before her death; but her mother was so nearly unconscious that it is doubtful if her presence was known to her.

   Mrs. Manson was one of those saintly, warm hearted Christians, whom to meet is a blessing. She was firmly grounded in Christian faith and helped others to choose the best in life. For her death was a source of joy rather than sorrow. Mr. Manson, who is very frail in body, but strong in spirit, still survives her. To him and his children we extend our sympathy.

March 29,1907 Atkinson Graphic

   Mrs. Frances Evans Martfeld died at her home Friday, March 22. Funeral services conducted by Rev Abbot were held in the Presbyterian Church at O'Neill Sunday afternoon.

April 5,1907 Atkinson Graphic

   The closing incidents of a life occurred in the quiet morning of Friday March 22,1907 when the end came peaceful ably, but unexpectedly to Mrs. Henry Martfeld of Emmet. The news of her death brought a deep feeling of sadness to a large circle of friends. The funeral was held from the Presbyterian church, O'Neill on Sunday. There was a very large attendance and sincere sympathy was expressed to the members of the bereaved family, consisting of a sorrowing husband, he being sick for the past 3 weeks with pneumonia and almost too sick to fully realize his wife's demise, and 5 children, John aged 20, Willie aged 18, Bertha aged 16, Mabel aged 14, and Frances aged 8. Interment took place in O'Neill Cem.

   Mary Frances Evans was born in Allamahee Co, Iowa in 1859, moving to Nebr. with her parents in 1881, who located near Emmet; here she grew to womanhood and April 13,1886 was united in marriage to Henry Martfeld. Mrs. Martfeld's illness was only of a few days. She became a Christian when a young lady and united with the United Brethren Church and maintained a steadfast faith in God to the end.

   Thus a generous neighbor, a loyal wife, a loving and considerate mother has passed from us. In all she possessed a splendid personality.

   The family wishes to express their deepest thanks for the kindness shown them during the illness and death of their dear mother.

In Memoriam of Armenia W Miller...

July 12,1900 Atkinson Plain Dealer

   Armenia Wheeler Miller was born March 21,1838 at Minden, Montgomery Co, NY. She was married to Abram W Miller Feb 24,1859 at the same place. The following year she moved to Kaukakee, Ill.

   In June 1881 they came to Atkinson where Mr. Miller died May 13,1887 and where Mrs. Miller died July 3,1900, aged 62 years, 3 months and 12 days.

   Mrs. Miller's death was a shock to all, for she had not been considered ill until a few hours before she passed away. She had been a patient sufferer for years with Bright's Disease, and death, as if remorseful of his purpose, came in the guise of slumber, and carried her away as gently as a tired child sinks to sleep.

   She leaves four sons and one daughter, Alfred W of Atkinson, Howard of Battle Creek, Clark H of Meadow Grove, Sherman L of Wellington, Wash, Minnie B of this place, all of whom were permitted to be with her when death summoned her, except Sherman.

   Out of her immediate family a brother and sister survive her, Theodore of this place, and Lucy Kyser of Fort Plain, NY.

   She was a member of Vestal Rebekah Lodge 49 LOOF in which she was an earnest worker when her health permitted. She was a good neighbor, and thoughtful sister, and a kind and loving mother. Her life was consistent with her belief and the many excellencies of her character were best known by her nearest friends. Her heart was full of sympathy and charity for all, and many a one mourns a true friend departed. Could she have been permitted to speak and say farewell it might have been the message of the poet,

   "Farewell friends, yet not farewell,
   Where I go ye too shall dwell,
   When you come where I have stept,
   Ye will wonder why ye wept
   Ye will known by true love taught,
   That here is all, and there is naught."

DIED ALONE
CLAUS NICHOLS FOUND DEAD IN HIS BED- NOT DISCOVERED FOR SEVERAL DAYS

   It is sad to part with those we love when we are with them to do all in our power for them while life lasts, but no such comfort is allowed the children of Claus Nichols. The first notice they had was a telegram stating that their father had been found dead in his bed in his house south of Atkinson. Saturday afternoon while W L Lowe was looking for cattle he rode near the house where Claus Nichols lived. On coming near the house the terrible stench warned him that something was wrong. He looked in through the half open door and saw Mr. Nichols dead in his bed.

   He went for Wilbur Ogle and John Erb, and after they had seen the body they came to town and notified A W Miller. Mr. Miller sent word to the coroner, Dr Trueblood of O'Neill, who came up Saturday night.

   Sunday, Dr Trueblood, Al Miller, William Dickerson, and Ed Kilmurry went out to the house where the coroner impaneled a jury and examined the witnesses. The verdict given was death from natural causes. The body was prepared for burial by undertaker Kilmurry and brought to Atkinson where the funeral was held.

   The only trace of friends or relatives was found in a money order advice which had been paid to Mr. Nichols nearly 2 years ago. In looking it up it was found to have been sent by George Hensen of Altantic, Iowa, he was notified and it was found he was a son in law of Mr. Nichols.

   Mr. Hensen in company with J H Tiedemann, another son in law, came up Monday night. They were perfectly satisfied with all that had been done and returned Tuesday morning.

   Mr. Nichols was a 73 year old, German by birth and had been a resident of Holt County since 1887.

Nightingale, John O D

Father- 1827-1901

Dec 6,1901 Atkinson Graphic

   In the recent deaths of Timothy Cross and John D Nightengale, Atkinson and vicinity has lost two of their most useful and respected citizens. They were among the first settlers in Holt Co, and by their industry and sterling qualities contributed much toward the present prosperous and settled condition of our town and community. They were good citizens in every respect; honest, industrious, and consistent members of the Catholic Church. It is expected that more extended obituary notices will appear in this paper in the near future.

Dec 6,1901 Atkinson Graphic

   The funeral of Mr. John Nightengale occurred this morning the services being held at Catholic Church. Deceased was stricken with apoplexy Sunday and died from the results of the same Wednesday night.

Dec 6,1901 Atkinson Graphic

   J J Nightengale, Omaha, arrived in city Wed night in summons to his father's death. John's many old time friends were pleased to see him, and sympathized with him and the rest of the family in the bereavement brought about by the father's death. John will remain here several days.

JOHN O D NIGHTENGALE

   John O D Nightengale was born in County Kildare, Ireland, Jan 1,1837. Emigrating to the US in 1851. He remained a short time at Staten Island, NY, when he went to Janesville, Wis., where he married Ellen O'Connell in 1857, soon thereafter they removed to Kilkinney, Minn., where 9 children were born to them and finally located in 1878 at Atkinson, where they have since resided. Of this union, John, Thomas, James, Hyacinth, Maggie and Matildy survive to mourn his loss. Mr. Nightengale was an Irishman of the old school. While deeply interested in the welfare of his adopted country, his heart and soul throbbed in sympathy with any cause that tended toward the liberation of his native isle and he was especially a close friend of Gen John O'Neill, whose efforts in behalf of Ireland are matters of history.

   He was educated at Dublin, Ireland where he became most proficient in history, mathematics, civil engineering all of which ably fitted him to grapple with the intricate problems to be solved in a frontier country of which he was a pioneer, having served as county surveyor of Holt Co for many years, and laid out and surveyed the townsites of Atkinson, Stuart, Additions to O'Neill, and located most of the emigrants who settled this county, besides doing much toward the up building of Atkinson.

   He was stricken with apoplexy, at his home on Dec 1, from which he never regained consciousness and died Dec 4,19091.

   Funeral services were held from the Catholic Church, of which he was a devout and faithful member throughout his long life, and the motion of his life seemed to be that heavenly anthem, "Peace on earth good will toward men."

DIES OF FRIGHT IN STORM

   At her farm home one and half miles northeast of Emmet, Thursday evening, June 22, occurred suddenly the death of Mrs. Jas O'Connell, due to fright and heart failure.

   Death cometh like a thief in the night to snatch our loved ones from us. So indeed it seemed to the relatives and friends of Mrs. James O'Connell, when the sad news of her sudden death reached them. When in obedience to her husband's call to take the children and the aged grandmother to the cave as a terrible storm was coming, she hurried them to safety but for some reason returned to the house but without entering burned back towards the cave and overcome with the excitement fell and all attempts to restore consciousness was in vain.

   Pearl Scripture was born near Bellwood, Butler Co, July 17,1874, where her mother died when she was but a child, and later her father moved to a farm near Atkinson where she endured the many hardships and privations of the early settlers.

   Her father having married again moved to town to send the smaller children to school and Pearl with her brother and sister remained on the farm until she was married to James O'Connell, Nov 7,1898.

   Mrs. O'Connell leaves to mourn her loss, her husband, four children John, Donald, Mary and Jerrol an infant son of 15 months, brother Fay of Atkinson, sister Ruby of Wyoming, two half sisters Blanche of Sioux City and May of Conde, SD, 3 half brothers Arch and Fern of Fort Pierre, SD and Earl of Atkinson.

   In this home where death has called the mother from her babies and the helpmate and companion from her husband, none will miss her like the aged grandmother, to whom she had been an angel of comfort in her declining years.

   Requiem Mass was observed at St Joseph Church, Saturday the 24th. The remains were laid to rest in St Joseph Cem.

JULIA PECK

   Julia Peck was at one time a resident of Holt Co, near Inez and will be remembered by her many friends. She was the mother of W W Peck.

Albany, Mo Journal- Another of the old reliable settlers of the county passed away when Mrs. Julia Peck was called from the cares of earth to the joys of Heaven. She was born in Tenn., May 3,1824 and was converted at 18 and joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church and for 60 years she was a very conscientious, intelligent and consecrated Christian. Being a woman of high mind and warm heart she had many devoted friends and left a record of a long and useful life.

   In 1848 she was married to William F Heck (that's the way the paper had it) and from this union there were born 10 children, 2 of whom with their father had preceded her to the world beyond. The 8 remaining are J C of Pagoda, Colorado, WW of Atkinson, H F of Rocky Ford, Colo., Nancy J Low of Gilret, Ark, Alice M Wayman of Albany, Mo, Julia Williams of Renfrow, Okla., Mattie W Robinson of Berlin, Mo, Ida C Amos of Poteau, Indian Territory.

   Her afflictions had been long and severe but her Christian fortitude was more than equal to the emergency and as her long Christian so in her painful end she impressed everyone with the power and beauty of her Christianity. Such a life as hers was in the crying need of motherhood, wife and children, and may her mantle fall on each of her children making them as she was a benediction to humanity.

SILAS C PURDY DEAD

   This once strong, rugged man, 68 years old, one of the early pioneers of Atkinson, last Sunday morning, after gradually failing in health the past 2 years, passed over to the Silent Majority.

   He was well known all over the county for his athletic proclivities and remarkable strength that insured success in the wrestling bouts in which he engaged in earlier days.

   He will be remembered by his neighbors and all who knew him as a generous, sympathetic, kind hearted man.

   In his illness he was cared for by the members of the Masonic Order, of which he was a member and they also took charge of the funeral service and laid him at rest in Woodlawn Cem., Tuesday, April 9,1907.

SKETCH OF J A ROBERTSON

   Mr. John A Robertson, passed away at his home in Atkinson on the evening of Aug 2,1916. Mr. Robertson was one of the old settlers of this county, having settled here before the railroad was built thru this part of the state. He came here in 1880 locating upon a homestead 9 miles northeast of Atkinson. At that time there were but 2 dwelling houses in the town and 2 business places, a store and a blacksmith shop. He was here all thru the years of trial and privation of the early pioneers.

   During his long residence in the county he has served as county commissioner for 2 terms, as well as serving his township in an official capacity in both cases with great efficiency.

   Mr. Robertson was born May 19,1852 in Moundville, Wis. He was there married to Lida Sutcliffe in 1879, soon after which they moved to Nebr.

   Mr. Robertson became a member of the Woodmen Lodge in 1892 and with which order he had maintained his member ship until his death.

   Death came to him not unexpected yet rather suddenly. He had been suffering for some time with anemia and took to his bed some weeks before his death, which occurred on last Wed evening in the presence of all members of the family, Mrs. Robertson, his wife, 2 daughters Abbie and Sylvia Webb of Clinton, Iowa, 1 brother , 4 sisters are the immediate relatives that survive the deceased.

   The death of our friend, neighbor, fellow citizen, is both a personal and public loss. He was a man esteemed for his uprightness of character. A man ever ready to help along every good cause in the community. He was a man quiet and retiring in disposition, but progressive in ideas and ideals. He was a man with religious ideals and hopes, expressing a personal faith in the Lord, Jesus Christ. Thus may we hope that in the final summons he heard his Master say, "Well done, enter thou into the joy of thy Lord".

TURKEY CREEK

   The death of Mr. Wagner, which occurred Sunday was sad news to this community as he was well and favorably known in both Holt and Boyd Counties. He leaves to mourn his death 3 sons and 2 daughters.

May 3,1907 Atkinson Graphic

   It is with deep regret that the death of Joseph Wagner is announced, which occurred very suddenly of apoplexy at his home near Phoenix, Sun, April 21,1907.

   Joseph G Wagner was born at Freeport, Ill, Nov 5,1847, enlisted as a private in the U S Service in Co C, 44th Reg. Iowa volunteers, when 18 years of age, discharged Sept 15,1864.

   Nov 20,1874 he was married to Alice Schwartz and to this union 5 children were born, 2 daughters and 3 sons. Mrs. Florence Carr and Hazel B of Waterloo, Iowa, Ralph, George and Howard of Phoenix. He leaves 3 brothers and 1 sister.

   Mr. Wagner was a good citizen, an affectionate, kind and indulgent father, a man of integrity and moral character. Although he had lived in our neighborhood but a short time there were a host of friends who were more than willing to do all in their power to contribute to his comfort and hoped for his speedy recovery but nothing could stay the progress of the disease that had seized upon him. Silently and surely it did its fatal work in the midst of his usefulness he was stricken down, yet he lives in the memory of his friends.

   Our friend, our neighbor is gone and we tender to the afflicted family our strongest and warmest sympathy in this their hour of bereavement.

   The funeral was held at Greeley school house Tue, April 23,1907. The remains were laid to rest in Phoenix Cem.
