OBITUARY - JOHN DALE

John Dale, of Taylor co., died at 11 o'clock Monday night the 2nd instant at his home. [He was] buried the 4th on the farm on which he resided under the supervision of the Masonic fraternity.

Mr. DALE was born in the State of Illinois, but moved with his father to Taylor co., Ia. in 1855 and married in spring of 1858 to Francis A. MOORE, sister of our townsman, Judge MOORE. In June of 1858 he moved into a log cabin on Platte river in Ringgold county. His father had given him five hundred acres of raw land and he had rented the cabin adjoining to his land and here he commenced battling the realities of life. He owned a pair of gray ponies, a cow, and had two dollars and fifty cents in money. He was the king among stock dealers in southwestern Iowa, and the name of John DALE was familiar to every stockman west of the Alleganies and was to some extent known in New York.

Two years ago Mr. DALE sold his farm on Platte river and bought the farm adjoining Bedford on which his father settled when he moved to Taylor county. He soon entered into a banking business with E. T. SMITH and two other parties.

He was attacked with consumption and leaves a wife and 4 children in his 35th year. His body rests beneath the sod in the graveyard [Platte River Cemetery] near his late residence. The cemetery was laid off under his own direction, a lot for his own family and for several friends.
