SAMUEL J. WITHAM

Samuel Jefferson Witham was born near Union, Warren County, Ohio, April 13, 1853 and died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. F. Martin, West Carrolton, Jan. 12, 1921, aged 67 years, 8 months, 29 days. He was the son of James and Mary Witham and was the 7th child of a family of nine children 4 boys and 5 girls all of whom, save three sisters, with their parents have passed to the home beyond. The surviving sisters are Mrs. W. W. Scott, So. Lebanon, Mrs. Jane McKinney, Xenia, and Mrs. Frank Chambers, Kings Mills.

Deceased was united in holy wedlock with Mary M. Hensel, Batavia, Jan. 31, 1880. Together they lived in ideal companionship for over 20 years, and it was his greatest sorrow when she was taken from him by death.

Mr. and Mrs. Witham received into their home, as the gift of God, 4 children, one of whom, Bertha May died in infancy. Those surviving are Mrs. Arthur Wasson, Middletown, Mr. A. C. Witham, Dayton, and Mrs. Frank Martin, West Carrolton.

In early manhood he sought and found Christ as his personal Savior and united with the M. E. church. He was an active member of Loyal Lodge No. 794, I.O.O.F. Kings Mills, O., having passed through the chairs.

He was faithful in all life’s relations. As a workman he won the confidence and good will of his employers and fellow workmen. He was honest and conscientious in his work, charitable in word and deed, kind and affectionate. In the community he was familiarly known as “Uncle Sam.”

For the past 4 years he has been in poor health. Two weeks prior to the end, his condition became serious. All that loving hands could do, was done, but to no avail.
