OBITUARY ~ ALBERT BEN CHENOWETH

Funeral services were conducted last Friday at the Barber Funeral home for Albert Ben Chenoweth and burial was made in the Shannon City cemetery.

Mr. Chenoweth, aged 77, died as a result of burns received in a fire at his home in Des Moines on the 9th of March. An oil stove on which he was cooking at 11 o'clock at night, caught fire and he threw water on it with a resulting explosion that burned him so badly that he was unable to recover. He was taken to the hospital at once where he remained until his death.

Albert Ben Chenoweth was born on a farm west of Lenox February 14, 1862. He was married on Dec. 25, 1899 to Mary Matzen. To this union two children were born, Knelon and Joe.

Both his sons and wife preceded him in death, his wife passing away in February 1939.

The family lived for some time in Montana after leaving here many years ago, and later came back to Iowa and lived on a farm five miles northeast of Lenox, leaving there about ten years ago and going to Des Moines to live.

He is survived by a sister, Fannie of Montana, a grandson, Kenneth Chenoweth of Des Moines, a cousin Clyde Hall of Corning and several nieces and nephews.
