OBITUARY ~ GABRIEL LARGENT

Gabriel Largent was born September 12, 1844, in Peoria county, Illinois, and passed away July 15th, 1932 at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wilson Randolph in Clearfield, aged 87 years, 10 months. He was married on March 5th, 1871, to Eliza Petty and to this union were born four children, only one of whom is living, Mrs. Charlotte Wineland of Des Moines, Iowa.

On February 2nd, 1862, he enlisted in Company 2, 57th Regiment of Illinois Infantry under Captain George Barr. He was with Sherman on his "March to the Sea", and was honorably discharged from the army on the first day of February, 1865, in the Field Georgia by reason of expiration of his term of service. On July 27th, 1866, he reenlisted in the Army of the United States and served another three years. He was honorably discharged July 27, 1869.

Those who have cared for him and learned to love him in recent years will miss him greatly. Today no reveille can arouse him, for his battles here have been fought and victories won. Funeral services were held from the Crew Funeral Home Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. J. C. Turner, pastor of the Methodist church officiating, assisted by Rev. Hutchman, pastor of the United Presbyterian church; interment in Clearfield cemetery.

The girls' quartette, Misses Helen Abarr, Margaret Swan, Marguerite Bush, and Pauline Carlton sang at the funeral.

Mr. Largent has made his home with Mr. and Mrs. Wilson Randolph for the past two years. He was a brother-in-law of Mrs. Randolph. Mr. and Mrs. Earl Simpson and daughter and Mr. and Mrs. Wineland of Des Moines attended the funeral of Mr. Largent Sunday. Mrs. Simpson was a niece and Mrs. Wineland a daughter of the deceased.
