The Ringgold Record, 1884
NOTICE of DEATH.
DIED--At his residence in Clinton township, Ringgold county, Iowa, on the 19th of August, 1884, Mr. Saml. EATON, in the
55th year of his age.
Bro. EATON was born in Cumberland county Ken. At the age of 13 years he came with his parents to Davis
county, Iowa. He was married to he present wife in 1850. A few months after his marriage he made a profession of religion and
united with the Babtist (sic) church, of which he remained a consistent member until his death, a period of thirty years. Mr. EATON
was a soldier during the late [Civil] war. He enlisted in Company G 29th Iowa Inft., but his health soon failed him and he was
confined to the hospital most of the time. At the close of the war he came home broken down in health and hardly enjoyed a day's
health since. His last sickness was short, only about eight days. His family have in their affliction the sympathy of a large circle
of friends. He leaves a wife and seven children to mourn his loss-but they mourn not as those who have no hope. He was followed to
his grave by a large number of friends and Neighbors. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. P. ANDREWS of Mt. Ayr, an old time friend
of the deceased. The memory of the just is blessed.
