OBITUARY ~ COLUMBUS DANT

Edward Columbus DANT was born in Indiana, November 15, 1860 and died at his home in Waubonsie township on January 30, 1921, age 61 years, 2 months and 8 days. On November 2 while in the timber cutting wood he was struck down by a tree, breaking his back. His accident resulted in his death on Sunday afternoon, January 30.

Deceased was married on May 16, 1885 to Margaret "Maggie" C[icelia]. CRUM in [Fairbury] Nebraska. To this union was born eleven children, Robert E. of North Dakota, Henry E. of Dunkerton, Kate DALTON of Phoenix, Arizona, Mollie LYTLE of Neosho Rapids, Kansas, Grace E. SNETHEN and Ida KIMBALL of this state, Blanch, Lottie, Owen, Doris and Howard at home. One daughter, Emily A. preceded her father in death.

Besides the wife and children he leaves fourteen little grandchildren and three sisters, Mrs. C. H. WHEELER of Ellston, Mrs. John Gray of Maloy and Mrs. Robert CAMPBELL of Yuma, Colo.; two brothers, J. B. DANT of Conway and W. P. DANT of Presho, S.D.

He was a kind and loving husband and father, always ready to do what he could for his family. He was always ready to help his neighbors and always a friend to all who knew him. He always loved the right and confessed his faith in Christ a short time before his death. He was a patient sufferer and always ready to smile and speak a word of cheer to his neighbors and friends as they came in for their last visits.

Though our hearts seem almost breaking
And our sorrow hard to bear,
As we gather 'round our fireside
And behold a vacant chair;
Yet we should grieve not for the one departed
Christ has claimed him for His own
And to him the many heartaches
Of this world will ne'er be known.
Yes we know he's free from sorrow
And will suffer never more,
For we know he's with the angels
On the bright and shining shore,
When we think of our loving one departed
In his happiness and bliss,
Let's thank the Lord his soul is anchored
In a brighter world than this.
Let us then by faith, fully trust Him;
Lean while weary on His breast,
He will help us bear our burden
And will give us peace and rest.

The funeral was held from Benton M.E. church February 4, conducted by T. S. RHOADES. The body was taken to Knowlton [Centenary Cemetery] for burial.
