  Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
March 15, 1923

OBITUARY ~ CHARLES FRANKLIN LYDDON

Charles Franklin Lyddon, fourth son of John and Hannah Lyddcn, was born in Warren county, Illinois, April 4. 1847, and died at his home in Clearfield, Iowa. March 7, 1923, age 75 years, 11 months, and 3 days.

In 1874 he was united in marriage to Elizabeth Richardson and in 1878 they came to Taylor County, Iowa, and the next year moved on the home farm where they resided until he moved to Clearfield 24 years ago.

To this union were born four children. Myrtle L. who died in 1896; Irvin Elza who died in infancy; Ned E. and Daisie L. both of Clearfield. Besides the wife and two children he leaves to mourn his loss, one grandson, C. K. Lyddon; one granddaughter, Mrs. Merle Sheets; one great grandson, Leslie Edgar Sheets; one great grand daughter, Ruth Elaine Sheets; four brothers, John and Henry of Lenox, Iowa; George of Clearfield, and Albert of Galesburg, Illinois, besides a host of other relatives and friends.

Mr. Lyddon was a tender hearted faithful, loving husband and father, wholly devoted to the welfare and happiness of family, relatives and friends. He seemed to live for others rather than himself, and by such life so endeared himself to those whom he loved and that loved him, that tho he is no longer with them in person, he will never cease to live in their hearts and memories.

While not a professed Christian in the days of his health, Mr. Lyddon, after requesting and hearing the prayer of one of God's Servants ceased his worrying and seemed to rest in peace and said to his family “I am going through” and ask different members of his family if they were going thru, thus giving evidence that he was trusting in his Heavenly Father to bear him safely thru the river of death, and land him on the shores of his eternal home.

The funeral was held at the M. E. church on Friday afternoon, conducted by T. E. Glendenning assisted by the pastors of the town and Elder R R Shannon.
