DEATH of CHARLES OTIS KIMBALL

Nothing was more surprising to us, than when we were informed Sunday of the death of Charles Otis KIMBALL of Sharps, in the seventeenth year of his age of inflammation of the bowels. A year or two ago, Otis made a Christian profession and was a member of the M.E. church at that place. He was a great favorite among his associates.

Since about a year ago, there has been five members taken from the class of boys of which this writer was a teacher. Those who have gone from that class to the one above are, Johhnie COOPER, Horace and George WEEKS, Newel BOOTH, and the last one Otis KIMBALL. These boys with five or six others composed a most interesting class, always being prompt, and scarcely being absent.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. HARNED, Sunday afternoon. There was a large congregation in attendance of sympathizing friends. The remains were taken Monday to the last resting place near Clearfield, Iowa [Platte River Cemetery near Maloy, Ringgold County, Iowa].

WHAT THE FAMILY REALLY THINKS HAPPENED TO OTIS

After Amanda [M. (COONS) KIMBALL] died [May 18, 1880], a Mr. and Mrs. OWENS agreed to take the little kids still at home that would need a woman's touch. This would be Charles, Cora, and Laura Jane. The baby Leroy T., born in February, died shortly after his mother in July. They must have lived with them at least until 1889. Charles Otis died as a result of a beating by Mr. OWENS for not doing the work he was assigned out in the field. When Mrs. OWENS was near death, she told Ebenezer KIMBALL to take his daughters Cora and Laura elsewhere, as she was afraid Mr. OWENS would abuse them.
