OBITUARY ~ DEE HAVILAND
Dee Havelin (sic), of Benton died suddenly from a stroke of apoplexy early Monday
morning. He and Mr. Dinkle had a wood sawing outfit in the Geo. Bentley and
Pine timber, southeast of Clearfield and were camping there. They had finished
their breakfast and Mr. Havelin had gone out to start the engine, ready for
work. He stooped over to pick up a piece of wood when he suffered a stroke of
apoplexy and fell. He was carried into the shack, and a doctor called from
Benton. Mr. Havelin died in a short time and before the arrival of the doctor.
He was a middle-aged man and leaves a wife and three children, his son, about
twelve years old, being with him at the time of his death.
NOTE: Dee HAVILAND was born June 29, 1871, and died January 15, 1917. He
was interred at Benton Cemetery, Benton, Ringgold County, Iowa. His wife was
Maud DINKEL HAVILAND.
