OBITUARY - MARION CAMPBELL
Marion CAMPBELL was born in Boone County, Indiana, June 23, 1839, and
died in Decatur County, Iowa, June 5, 1903, aged 63 years, 11 months and
11 days. He moved with his parents to Jefferson County, Iowa, in
November, 1855, and from there to Decatur County, Iowa, in April, 1856,
where he resided to the time of his death.
He united with the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1858. Mr. CAMPBELL is
survived by six children, four of whom were present at his death: Mr.
CAMPBELL, who resides near Grand River; Frank CAMPBELL, who lives in Mount
Ayr; Charles CAMPBELL, who lives in Decatur County, and Miss Lela
CAMPBELL, who lived with her father in Decatur City. The eldest
daughter, Maggie STANDISH, resides in Texas and could not be present at
the funeral. The third daughter, Mrs. Bessie WARNER, of Iowa Falls
arrived only in time for the funeral.
Mr. CAMPBELL was one of the oldest settlers of Decatur City and was well
and favorably known. Mr. CAMPBELL also leaves two sisters to mourn his
departure: Mrs. Sarah COVINGTON and Miss Martha CAMPBELL, both of
Decatur City, Iowa. His death came very sudden and many knew nothing of
his being stricken down until he was near death's door. Less than two
days before he was at work and on our streets and showed no premonitions
of the great change which was so near.
The funeral services were conducted at the Methodist Church by the
pastor, Rev. E.B. Scoggan, assisted by Rev. H. D. YANT of the United
Brethren Church. The remains were laid to rest in the Woodmansee
Cemetery among many loved ones who had gone on before.
