DeWitt C. Cady.

This morning the remains of DeWitt C. Cady were brought from Creston and buried in the Atlantic cemetery. The Masonic fraternity and other friends met the bereaved family at the depot and the body was taken to the Baptist church where the funeral services were immediately held. After a short and impressive sermon by Rev. W. E. Stanley and appropriate service by the Masons, the body was followed to the cemetery by many friends and buried with Masonic rites.

DeWitt C. Cady was born in Oneida county, N. Y., May 23, 1842, and came to Cass county in 1870 and was an honored citizen of this community until he moved to Creston last May, where he died Friday, December 18. Mr. Cady was married to Hattie A. Owens, of his native home, October 26, 1869, and to the union three children have come to bring joy to their parents, Frank C., Mary E. and Clarence W., who are now a comfort to the bereaved wife and mother. The family was well and favorably known in Atlantic and were prominent members and faithful workers in the Baptist church, Mr. Cady having filled several of the prominent offices in the church organization. Many have been the words of sympathy for the living and respect for the dead since the sad news first reached Atlantic of the death of Mr. Cady. At this time it is not known whether the family will return to Atlantic to live or not. Frank Cady, the oldest child, is now a pharmacist employed in Chicago.

Mrs. J. W. Williams and sister Miss E. M. Owens, received the sad news of the death of their brother-in-law, D. C. Cady of Creston, Iowa, and for the benefit of the relatives of Mrs. Cady, the following is clipped from the Atlantic, Iowa, Democrat:

“The funeral services of DeWitt C. Cady of Creston, Iowa, who died Dec. 18, after an illness of four months, was solemnized at the Baptist church in this place Monday morning at 10:15 o’clock, Rev. W. E. Stanley, the pastor, officiating. The remains were met at the depot by the Atlantic Lodge, A. F. & F. M. and escorted to the church and then at the close of the services to the Atlantic Cemetery where they were buried with Masonic honors.

D. C. Cady was born in Newport, Herkimer Co., N. Y., May 23, 1842. Removed with his parents to South Trenton, Oneida Co. He was married here to Hattie A. Owens, October 26, 1869, and this union was blessed with three children Frank C. a pharmacist in Chicago, Ill, Mary A. and Clarence W.

Mr. and Mrs. Cady came to Cass county in 1870 where they resided until their removal to Creston last April.

The deceased joined the Masonic order thirty years ago in Utica, N. Y. He united with the Baptist church in 1877 and not only honored his christian profession to the end of his life, but was elected to various positions of trust as deacon, trustee and financial secretary which he filled most efficiently. As a man he was held in high esteem for personal integrity and social qualities. Mr. Cady’s death is severely regretted by all who knew him and many are the spontaneous tributes paid to his worth as a christian citizen and friend.”
