Mrs. Frank Smart has received word of the death of Ossie Pickard, a cousin of her's and Ira and Roy Pickard. Ossie Pickard has a number of relatives around Hillsboro, Bonaparte, Salem and Ft. Madison.
Ossie T. Pickard, 70, of Langdon Lane, died at 3:55 p.m. Wednesday at Mt. Carmel hospital, where he had been a patient for one week. He had been seriously ill for the past two weeks and had been in failing health for several years.
He was born March 28, 1896 in Lamar and came to Pittsburg, Pa., at the age of two with his parents, the late Ellsworth and Clara Pickard. His father, Ellsworth Pickard was a policeman here, and Ossie Pickard was Pittsburg's first motorcycle patrolman.

Pickard served overseas in the Army in World War I, and was a member of the American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and the Methodist church.
He was married in Pittsburg in 1915 to Remola Leota Bivin, of Pittsburg, who survives. Also surviving are two sisters, Mrs. W.F. Magie, 111 E. 22nd and Mrs. Clay Mangrum, 918 S. Walnut.
