Andrew Stout Monfort (1842-1912)

Two old citizens of Deerfield township have recently passed away. Mr. Samuel Thompson who resided in Mason and Mr. Stout Monfort who lived on the Mason and Lebanon pike. Mr. Monfort was one of the oldest citizens of the county, having lived to be 92 years of age. Mr. Thompson had passed the three score and ten mark. He was a veteran of the civil war and probably drew the largest pension of any private soldier in the county. He had drawn $72 monthly for the past 22 years and no one begrudged him it. He and his wife only lately celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.
