DEATH of ABRAHAM MOSIER.
After an illness of several months' duration, Abraham MOSIER, pioneer settler and highly respected citizen of Ringgold county,
passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ed DUGAN, in east Mount Ayr Thursday, March 26. Mr. MOSIER was born in Holmes
county, Ohio, May 28, 1829, and was 85 years, nine months and 26 days old at the time of his death. When about six years of
age he moved with his parents to Lee county, Iowa, where he grew to manhood and was united in marriage with Miss Emma MACKLE

He was a good father, always busy as long as he was able doing something for others, and will be greatly missed. He was
willing to go and anxiously awaited the summons. A few minutes before the end he said, "O, Lord, take me home."
