After a short residence there they moved to McClane Co., near the town of Arrowsmith. After a few years there he removed to Lamar, Barton Co., Missouri, where he met and married Miss Jane Adams, September 26th, 1868. To this union were born two sons, Thomas and Elmer.

In the fall of 1874, with his family he came to Taylor County, Iowa, where they have made a continuous residence until December 21st, last, when he and Mrs. Clarey went to spend the winter in the milder climate of Oklahoma with his son Elmer and family. Here he was stricken with LaGrippe and passed away on January 12th, 1916, at the age of 82 years, 5 months and 23 days.

H.Stewart of Sutton, Nebraska; six grandsons and four grand-daughters, of whom he was very fond and in whom he took a great interest.

Two sisters, Mrs. Robert Wilcox and Mrs. U.V. Payne, preceded him in death. Uncle John, as ho was generally known, was a kind and loving father and affectionate husband, always of a light and cheery disposition, trying to make life happy for everyone near him.
