  Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
May 21, 1925

ROBERT M. FLEMING

Robert Fleming died in a hospital in St. Joseph last night, about 1:30. Until three or four days ago he was thot to be making excellent progress toward recovery from his previous operation of a month since. He came to this community nearly fifty years ago, and settled on a farm a mile north of town some years before Clearfield was on the map. Mr Fleming never married, and had one sister, Mrs. Ennis, in Clarinda, and we believe a brother in Pennsylvania. Elmer Brand drove Dr. Reed and J. R. Crew to Clarinda, meeting a nephew there, and the four went to St. Joe in the night.

OBITUARY ~ ROBERT M. FLEMING

Robert M. Fleming was born May 23, 1852 and passed away at the St. Joseph hospital on Wednesday. His parents were Martin and Maria Fleming. He was born in Huntington Co. Pa , and grew to manhood on the old home place.

It was in 1877 when he came to Iowa, and soon thereafter purchased the farm north of Clearfield where he has since resided.

He is survived by a brother and a sister and several nephews and nieces. Mr. E. H. Ennis, a nephew of Essex, accompanied by his wife were in attendance.

Mr. Fleming was a frequent attender upon the church services. He had a retiring disposition, and being without family he did not mix in neighborhood life as heartily as some, but he was neighborly and congenial and had many ways of showing a kindly disposition, many knew him as a friend in time of need or disaster.

Funeral services were held at the M. E Church Saturday, May 23d, which would have been his 73rd birthday. The pastor, Rev. A. J. Matthews officiated. Interment followed in Clearfield Cemetery.
