OBITUARY ~ ALBERT HARTMAN

Albert Hartman was born August 23rd. 1854, died March 23rd, 1915, aged 60 yrs. and 7 mos. On January 8th, 1882, he was married at Kalona, Iowa, to Miss M. E. Rogers, who continued to be his inspiration, companion, friend, and help mate, and today mourns the loss of a kind and loving husband. Through the favor of the Almighty, two children came into their home; Lawrence E.; and Eva V. Eva was taken from them by death on May 11th, 1912.

In addition to his immediate family, Mr. Hartman is survived by two brothers and two sisters, a large circle of relatives, and a host of friends, in this community and other places where he has lived, who today united with the family in mourning the taking away of their friend and fellow townsman.

The early life of the deceased was spent in the county of his birth. The year after his marriage he removed to Adair county (1883), and eight years later, in 1891, to our neighboring town of Diagonal. After seven years residence there he lived a year in Glenwood, Iowa,and vicinity, moving to Clearfield in the fall of 1899, which has since been his home.

Reared upon a farm, he naturally took up that occupation when he began to do for himself. Later he entered the mercantile trade, conducting a general store in Diagonal. His business life in Clearfield has been in the Hardware business, and all the time located on the corner where his familiar face and genial smile will be sadly missed by his loyal patrons, his business associates and his many friends. His business capacity, reputation for honesty and the giving a square deal won for him a profitable trade.

About 1893 he made a profession of his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and united with the Presbyterian church in Diagonal, and after coming to Clearfield he entered into fellowship with the Christian church of our town.

Although he has been almost continuously in his store till a couple of weeks ago, when he went to Excelsior Springs,: Mo., with the hopes that the water might help him, he has nevertheless been a sufferer from a complication of diseases for several years. Though the suffering was often intense he bore it with remarkable patience, so that only his nearest friends knew what he was passing through.

The entire community unite today in extending sympathy to the bereaved wife, son and friends. May you have the gracious Lord's comfort in your grief.

The funeral services were held at the Baptist Church at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, March 26th. Rev. Aikins officiated, assisted by Rev. Prather. Business houses were closed, and the attendance exceeded the capacity of the church. Floral offerings were numerous. Interment followed in Clearfield Cemetery.
