OBITUARY ~ EUSEBA (GARWOOD) KAHLEY
Euseba Kahley was born to Fenton and Mary Garwood April 14, 1849. The place of her birth was a little west of Kenton, in Hardin County, Ohio.
The Garwoods had come from England into Virginia before the French and Indian Wars. Having the blood of pioneers in their veins, many of the descendants of these people migrated into Kentucky and from there one of them, Jesse, went further into the wilderness and settled in the district which afterward became Hardin County. This Jesse Garwood was Euseba's grandfather. It was a thickly wooded district and required no end of tree chopping, log rolling, and burning, before even a small acreage of crops could be grown.
The home, the schoolhouse, and the church were commonly made of logs. The little girl who was afterward to become the subject of this sketch grew to young womanhood amid those surroundings. At the age of twenty-two, Euseba was married to Augustian Clark with whom she went west to take part in the early settlement of Dakota. Three children, Jennie, Harry, and Jesse were born to this marriage, and in 1882 the mother with her three children returned to Ohio, where in 1887 she married Joseph Kahley, with whom she came to Iowa. They settled then upon the farm where they resided at the time of her death. One child, Fern, was born to them and this daughter of their middle years has been a great solace to her mother - loyally sharing with her the good and the ill through all those years.
Mrs. Kahley has expressed a wish that the many friends and neighbors, especially the Perkins children, from whom she has received so many kindnesses, should know that she has appreciated them and remembers them in all kinliness.
Funeral services were held at the home Saturday December 7, 1929 conducted by Rev. J. C. Tryon, pastor of the Diagonal Nazarene church. Interment was made in the Knowlton Cemetery
