Augustus D. Strickler (1840-1919_

TAPS SOUNDED
For Mr. A. D. Strickler, Civil War Veteran, Who Died Sunday

Lebanon was shocked Monday to learn of the death of Mr. A. D. Strickler, Civil War Veteran, who passed away at the home of his son, Fred, in Owensboro, Kentucky, on Sunday, following a short illness. He was 78 years of age.
Funeral services for the deceased were held from the home of his daughter, Mrs. P. O. Monfort, of East Main St., Tuesday afternoon being conducted by the Rev. C. S. Williams of the First Presbyterian Church. Interment was made in Lebanon Cemetery.
The following tribute was read at the services:

In Memoriam

A. D. Strickler, son of George and Theodocia Dunham Strickler, was born October 15, 1840, and died at Owensboro, Ky., at the home of his son, Fred, July 20, 1919, aged 78 years, 9 months and 5 days.
Shortly after the outbreak of the Civil War, he enlisted in Co. A., 35th Ohio Vol. Inf. He was mustered into the service at Hamilton, Ohio on August 20, 1861, served three years in the service of this country during those great days, and at the conclusion of his term of enlistment was mustered out August 19, 1864. He was made prisoner at the battle of Chicamauga [sic], but escaped on the way to prison, and three months later after enduring many hardships reached the Union lines at Knoxville, and rejoined his Company at Chattanooga.
On December 24, 1865, he was united in marriage to Mary Alice Elliott. To this union were born three sons and two daughters. Two sons, William T. and Fred D., and one daughter, Mrs. Carrie L. Monfort, survive him. His wife, Alice died May 7, 1898.
For the 16 years after his wife’s death he made his home with his daughter, Carrie, in Lebanon; and since then with his son, Fred. He was always greatly interested in his children and any success or happiness that came to them was as dear to him as though it had come to him personally. He also treasured the associations that grew out of his participation in the War of the Rebellion and maintained his loyalty to his comrades and enjoyed his fellowship with them. These and many other friends and relatives join in sympathy with the family to mourn their loss.

Helen I. Strickler (1883-1897)

Miss Helen Strickler, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Strickler, of the Children’s Home was born March 1, 1883 and died May 21, 1897, of consumption.
The Funeral Services were held in the Presbyterian church, conducted by its pastor, and the interment took place in the Lebanon Cemetery, Sunday, May 23.
Miss Strickler was possessed of remarkable elocutionary and rhetorical power for a girl her age, and her gift in this direction made her a favorite and brought her into prominence in many part of the country, and in this connection she gained a warm place in the hearts of the veterans of the Grand Army of the Republic, which honored her with the title of “The Daughter of the Regiment,” when she was but eight years of age. At the funeral the G. A. R. attended in a body as a token of the respect and esteem they held for the bright, but lost daughter. This is an honor seldom given to one of her sex.
Helen was a general favorite among her associates of her own age, in the home and school. She was possessed of remarkable patience, and during her long illness gave no expression to murmurs or complaints. She had no fear of death and passed away in the full assurance of a blessed immortality.
