OBITUARY

WILLIAM L. EDMONDSON was born in Louisa County, Iowa, September 15, 1857, and died at his home in Decatur County, Iowa, near Tuskeego, November 3, 1912, at the age of 55 years 4 months and 19 days.

He had suffered for more than a year during which time his health had been gradually failing. He had planned a trip to the west about the first of December in hopes it would prolong his life. But on Sunday, November 3, he took worse and about six o'clock passed away peacefully and quietly. A good many years ago he became a Christian and united with the United Brethren Church at Tuskeego. He was a faithful Christian unto the end, exemplifying the principles of Christianity in his life day by day. He had lived at his late home for a number of years and a more honest upright man could not be found in the community. A few years ago he was elected and served one term on the board of supervisors of this county. He made a splendid officer, his judgment on matters pertaining to the county being of the very best. He leaves to mourn his early departure the wife of his youth, two daughters, Mrs. R.B. MOULTON and Mrs. JOHN EVANS, three little grandchildren, his aged father, two sisters, two brothers and a host of friends and other relatives.

The funeral service was held at the home Wednesday morning, November 6, at ten o'clock, being conducted by Rev. J.S. Coffin, pastor of the Christian Church of this city. The remains were laid to rest in the Kellerton [Maple Row] Cemetery.
