OBITUARY ~ JOSEPH H. HADDEN

J. H. Hadden, resident of Clearfield for many years, died, at his home just before 9 o'clock Tuesday evening. Mr. Hadden had come thru an attack of pneumonia this winter, and seemed to have been attacked with grippe last week. He worked at the schoolhouse where he was janitor until Friday evening, against the wishes of family. At his age, nearly 70, he had not the strength to overcome this final attack. There are two children, both with him at the end, Mr. L.M. Hadden of Clearfield, and Mrs. Lottie Jensen of Exira, Iowa. We will give the obituary next week.

The funeral was held at the M E Church Thursday at 2:30.

OBITUARY ~ JOSEPH H. HADDEN

Joseph H. Hadden, son of Samuel and Ann Hadden was born near Norwich, Muskingum Co., Ohio, July 3, 1855 and died May 5, 1925, aged 69 years, 10 mo, 2 days.

He was the second youngest of a family of twelve, all having preceded him in death but one, aged sister, Mrs. C. F. Glessner of Urbana, 0.

Feb. 17, 1876 he was united in marriage to Miry Ellen Hoenicks of Zanzesville. Ohio. To this union was born Virginia Annette, who died in infancy, [?L. M. Hadden] and Mrs. Lottie Jensen of Exira, Iowa.

There are three grandchildren—Misses Corine and Leona Hadden of Clearfield and Miss Betty Jensen of Extra, Iowa.

In 1886 the family moved from Ohio to Madison Co. where Mr. Hadden engaged in farming for a time and later in the hardware business. In 1899 be removed to Siloam Spring Ark., returning in about a year and settling in Clearfield, where they have since resided living in the residence on Main Street.

As janitor of the school for six years his work has been well and faithfully wrought. He labored to make others happy and comfortable. Mr. Hadden united with the M.E. Church in 1890 and was ever at his post of duty when his health permitted.

For nearly fifty years Mr. Hadden and wife have journeyed together facing life's fears and tragedies with courage and hope. Now the gates open and the husband caters to a fairer clime and lovelier task.

Services were held at the Methodist Church Thursday at 2:30, conducted by Rev. Matthews, being assisted by Rev. Johnson. Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.
