Tingley Vindicator
Tingley, Ringgold County, Iowa
Thursday, November 28, 1919

OBITUARY ~ W. T. CORNWALL

The following account, taken from the Denver, Colo. Times of November 21, is in regard to the death of a former well-known citizen of Union county, but who was identified with the early history of the north half of Ringgold county as well. He was so well thought of and highly respected, that the township of Tingley and later the town of Tingley was, on the suggestion of Edgar SHELDON, another highly esteemed pioneer, named after Mr. CORNWALL, taking his second given name - Tingley.

William Tingley CORNWALL died this morning at his residence, 917 East Thirteenth Avenue, after being an invalid for thirteen years.

He was born in Mansfield, Ohio, October 21, 1842. At the commencement of the Civil War, he enlisted in the Eighteenth Iowa Infantry and served throughout the war. After the Civil War, Mr. CORNWALL settled in Iowa and married Amy K. BOSWORTH of Brighton, Iowa [April 19] 1870 [at Brighton, Iowa]. He was treasurer of Union county, Iowa, for a number of years until he came to Denver in 1882 at the request of J. O. BOSWORTH, to become secretary and treasurer of the Denver Fire Clay company. For twenty-one years, he was active in the management of this company, and largely responsible for its success.

Mr. CORNWALL is survived by his widow, who has scarcely left this bedside for many years. Two children, Albert CORNWALL and Milo CORNWALL, died many years ago, the former in infancy and the latter at the age of 25 years, before marrying and Tingley's founder left no heirs.

  

  NOTE: William Tingley CORNWALL, the son of Francis CORNWALL (1800-1869) and Martha (CARR) CORNWALL (1802-?) was interred at Block 33 of Fairmount Cemetery, Denver, 430 South Quebec St Colorado. Amy Keturah (BOSWORTH) CORNWALL, the daughter of Daniel Ladd and Lydia J. (CASE) BOSWORTH, was born in 1849, and died in 1940. She was also interred at Fairmont Cemetery, Denver.

From Representative Women of Colorado, "MRS. AMY K. CORNWALL DENVER: Charter member of North Side and Woman's Clubs of Denver, and also of the Colorado Equal Suffrage Association, of which she was President for several years. Has resided in Colorado thirty-two vears.
