Obituary

John David Goble was born July 11, 1842 near Columbus, Indiana. At the age of five years he came with his mother and family to Iowa and settled on what was then known as Amboy in Washington county, Iowa.

In April of 1852 the mother passed away living a family of six children. For each of these a home was provided by relatives or friends. Fortunately Mr. Goble’s lot was to be located with the Cunningham family, in whose good Christian home he remained nine years. Then the War of the Rebellion came on, and on August 10, 1861, he enlisted “for three years or during the war”. He served his full three years [Co. C 8th IA Infantry] and enlisted again to serve until the close of the war which came in April of 1865. But his regiment was not mustered out until May 9, 1866.

Mr. Goble returned to Crawfordsville and pursued the occupation of farming. On December 10, 1868 he was married to Miss Lou H. Johnson of Crawfordsville. After their marriage they moved to Missouri and resided there a few years. In 1876 they returned to Iowa and settled within the bounds of the Platte Valley United Presbyterian church. Upon the dissolution of that church in 1894 they transferred their membership to Clearfield, which has since been their point of residence.

They were spared to each fifty seven years, seven months and three days. Mrs. Goble passed away in August of 1927. Mr. Goble survived his wife by the period over nine years, his death occurring at his home Friday, April 23, 1937.

To Mr. and Mrs. Goble, two children were born, W. I. Goble, who passed away November 19, 1897, and Mrs. E. D. Beamer, the only surviving member of the immediate family. There are four grandchildren: J. Z. Beamer of Des Moines, Iowa, Mrs. D. O. Keith of Windom, Minnesota, Mrs. Erle Lupner of Tingley, Iowa, and O. E. Beamer, Mt. Ayr, Iowa. There are three great grandchildren: Clifford Beamer, Gorden Keith and John Dean Beamer.

Among old and young Mr. Goble's friends were many. He will be sadly missed in the home, the church and the community.

Funeral services were held in the Clearfield United Presbyterian Church Sabbath afternoon, April 25, the sermon being preached by the pastor Rev. H. B. Hutchman, who chose as his text the words of Paul to Timothy, “Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.”

Interment was made in the Clearfield cemetery beside his companion and his son.
