The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1919

OBITUARY - JEREMIAH C. GUSTIN.

Jeremiah C. GUSTIN, farmer and stock-raiser, lived in Jefferson Township, and was a native of Ohio, born in Adams County, June 14, 1846, a son of Jeremiah W. and Rachel (MADDOX) GUSTIN, who themselves were natives of Kentucky and Virginia respectively.

The family settled in Marion County, Iowa, in 1855, and in 1857 came to Ringgold County, at which time Indians and wild animals were the principal inhabitants, and here the father entered 1,000 acres of uncultivated land, where the family endured all the hardships and privations incident to pioneer life.

The father died in this county May 16, 1880, and the mother is still living, making her home with her son, Alpheus M., in Jefferson Township [Ringgold County].

Jeremiah has always followed farming, in which he has met with success, being now the owner of 280 acres of well-improved land.

He was married November 11, 1875, to Miss Mattie A. PAGE, a daughter of Edwin PAGE. Mr. and Mrs. GUSTIN have five children - Cary E., Oriental J., Edwin P., Pearl and Violet.

Jeremiah has served as school director for several years. He and his wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal church.

NOTE: Jeremiah C. GUSTIN died on February 10, 1919 with interment at Union Cemetery near Diagonal, Ringgold County, Iowa. Mattie A. (PAGE), wife of Jeremiah C. GUSTIN, was born on December 16, 1858, and died on May 24, 1942 with interment at Union Cemetery.
