He has been in poor health for some time but only confined to his bed for four days.
At the age of sixteen he enlisted in the Union Army, Company D, 43rd regiment and was discharged from service June 13, 1865, having served almost fifteen months.
November 9, 1871 he was married to Laura Killen. To this union were born fourteen children, eight sons and six daughters.
He leaves to mourn his departure his wife, seven sons and one daughter, David A., of Savannah; Ira, of Rea; Walter C. and Charles W., of Kansas City, Kansas; Wesley E., of Ravenwood; Loren M. of McCook, Neb.; Ethel and Fred at home and thirteen grandchildren and three great-grandchildren and many other relatives and friends.
The memorial services were held at the Fillmore M. E. Church Friday afternoon in the presence of a large crowd, Rev. M. F. Brower, of Savannah, gave the address.
His six strong and respected sons acted as pall bearers. What a great heritage this man has left. The body of this man, who did the best he could, was placed in the Fillmore cemetery and he who occupied that body has gone on to home in the heavens not made with hands and He who took care of him so wisely here is doing the same thing there.
