OBITUARY ~ CHARLES FREMONT HANSELL

Charles Fremont Hansell, the youngest son of David and Lydia Ann Hansell, was born in Lexington, Ohio, March 11, 1863 and died at his home near Clearfield, September 23, 1935, aged 72 years. 6 months and 12 days. When eighteen years old he moved with his parents to Lenox, Iowa, and one year later to a farm east of Lenox where he lived until 1923 when he moved to Clearfield, remaining there for five years. He then moved back to the farm where he spent the remainder of his life.

In 1891 he married Laura Jones and six children were born to them.

The names of the living children are Harry of Clearfield, Mrs. Hattie Millikin of Shannon City, Bert Hansell of Diagonal, and Mrs. Ruth Horton of Clearfield. Two children, Jessie and Edna, died in infancy. Besides his devoted companion and children he leaves one brother, Joe Hansell of Creston, and three grandchildren.

In 1904 he was converted and joined the Calvary Church. For the past thirty-one years he has not only been glad and rejoiced in his affiliation with the church, but has helped carry on the work of the Church in ways which were open to him. The fact that he was a good Christian man is not only a comfort to his sorrowing bereaved ones but to others who knew him.

For a considerable time he had not been well, but was not complaining. His answer when asked how he was, was always optimistic. He did not want to appear sick. He will be greatly missed in this community where he has lived for more than half a century.

Funeral services were held in Calvary Church at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Rev. J. C. Turner conducted the service, and interment was in Clearfield cemetery.

Music was furnished by E. C. Heaton, J. R. Crew, Mrs. J. R. Crew, and Mrs. J. C. Barrans, accompanied by Mrs. Ralph Baker.
