OBITUARY - REV. JEREMIAH T. HUGHES

A good man has been taken away from us but his good works will follow after him, His was a great life, a great life of service, one has said The Life of a Good Man is like the Shadow of a Great Hawk in a weary land.

Funeral Services were conducted at the church in Conway Sunday, March 28th, by Rev REDINGER, assisted by Rev. J. A. MOORMAN, pastor of the Methodist Church at Barnes City, Iowa.

The sermon was preached from the text; "Our Father Jacob gave us the well" John 4:12. A large audience filled the church and because of his extensive acquaintances, if the day and roads had been suitable, the building would not have accommodated the gathering.

Father HUGHES preached his last sermon in Conway, it being the last service that was held in the old Methodist Church before the building was wrecked. He also preached the first sermon that was ever preached in Conway. His church then was the Burlington depot.

Interment was made in the Conway Cemetery, Mr. Ralph CREW of Clearfield was funeral director. Besides his companion and five children and relatives, Father HUGHES leaves a host of friends to mourn his loss.

He did the pioneer work and helped to lay the foundation for methodism as we see it now.

"Servant of God, well done,
Thy glorious warefare's past
The battle's fought, the race is won,
And thou art crowned at last."
