OBITUARY ~ BASIL ALEXANDER HERRING

Basil Alexander Herring, son of Jacob and Minerva Swisher Herring, was born January 18, 1885, near Jefferson City, Galloway county, Missouri., and died at his home in Clearfield, Iowa, September 24, 1936, at the age of 51 years, 7 months and 17 days.

He lived in Galloway county until four years of age, when he moved with his parents to Luray county, Mo. where he lived until 1911, when he came to Clearfield, where he spent the remainder of his life.

On May 13, 1913, he was married to Miss Nellie Soma of Clearfield. To them seven children were born, two sons Gordon and Gail dying in infancy. He is survived by his devoted wife, three sons, Rupert, Rolly and Donald, and two daughters, Hazel and Pauline, all at home. The mother, father and five brothers and one sister preceded him in death.

He worked as a common laborer until he became street commissioner and night watch in 1929, holding this job for four years. For the past two years he has been janitor at the school house, but owing to failing health, he had to turn the work over to his son Rupert.

Basil was a friend to everyone with whom he came in contact and will not only be missed in the home, but by many others. He loved his home and family.

When a young man he united with the Methodist church in Luray, Mo., where his membership still is.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist church, Sunday afternoon, at 2:30, Rev. W. C. Henn, pastor of the church, officiating, assisted by Rev. H. B. Hutchman, pastor of the United Presbyterian church. Interment was in the Clearfield cemetery.

The music was furnished by a mixed quartet, Misses Helen Abarr and Margaret Swan, Messers. Chas. Swan and C. F. Lyddon, accompanied by Mrs. Belle Anderson.

Pall bearers were Dr. Swan, Gene Baxter, Allie Cowell, Rolley Bailey, Raymer Stephenson and Frank Stewart.
