Joseph Mlady was born on the 9th day of April, 1856, in Kolisov, near Tabhr, in Bohemia, and when sixteen years old emigrated to America with his father Francis Mlady and seven of his brothers and sisters. The family settled in New Oregon Twp. in Howard county, Iowa, where the deceased engaged in farming, which calling he pursued successfully until his death. In the year 1880 he married Miss Marie Dvorak. As a result of this union there were borne to them three children, the oldest of whom Johanah is married to Mr. Francis Valvoda, the second, Joseph Mlady, being married to Marie Kostka, and who also is farming successfully in Howard county, the youngest daughter, Emily is a teacher in the public schools. The deceased lived with his father until the year 1880 when he assumed charge of his father's premises, making of them a model farm, He became a widower in 1898 and remained unmarried, living and working with his children. His last sickness first evidenced itself about three years ago, when he began to suffer with gall stones, and the pains constantly increasing he finally submitted to an operation on the 11th day of Dec. 1916, succumbing to the ravages of the disease Dec. 12th, mourned by his family and many friends.
To a host of our people Mr. Mlady was known to be an exemplary citizen, honest and honorable in all his business dealings, a good neighbor, and to his family a most kind and affectionate father who ever looked to the welfare of those dependent upon him. He was extremely liberal in his views and accorded to others the same measure of political, social and religious liberty which he himself demanded, and as such held the respect and good will of all his acquaintances.
His funeral took place last Friday morning at the I. O. O. F. hall in charge of the various orders of which he was a member, an address being delivered by Charles Pergler. He belonged to and was an honored member of the Odd Fellows, the M. W. A. and the Z. C. B. J. Society of Spillville. Interment was at New Oregon cemetery.
