Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
May 27, 1915

OBITUARY ~ HARRIS H. CARLTON

Harris H. Carlton, son of John M. and Sarah Carlton was born in Ringgold County, Iowa, February 12, 1885, and died at Oakdale, Iowa, May 17, 1915, age, 30 years, 3 mos. and 5 days.

He moved with his parents to Clearfield in about 1895, and attended school here, graduating in 1902. Afterward he went with his parents to Lenox and took some work in the Lenox school. He afterward attended the Simpson Business College, graduating in 1904.

Since that time, until the sickness which resulted in his death, he followed railroad office work, spending several years at Forsyth, Montana, and afterward in California and Arizona.

He showed his filial devotion by his faithful writing of a weekly letter to his father and mother at home, and missed only five or six letters in more than ten years. He was very considerate of his nurse who did everything she could for him. During the last days of his sickness there were with him his two sisters, Leota and Eunice, and his brothers David and Fred.

He leaves to mourn his departure his father and mother; his two sisters, Mrs. S. P. Wilt and Mrs. H. A. Olin; his three brothers, David, Fred, and Cecil and a host of other relatives and friends.

On the invitation of Rev. Silvester E Ellis, pastor of the Methodist church at Iowa City, he accepted Christ as his personal Savior, and before he died made a clear declaration of his faith in Christ.

Funeral services were held from the Methodist church at Lenox, conducted by Rev. Walter A. Morgan; interment at Fairview Cemetery.
