OBITUARY

Civil War Flags.jpg Blanchard NEVILL, son of John and Hannah BOND NEVILL, was born in Middle Gould, Yorkshire, England, Dec. 4, 1844, and departed from this life on June 5, 1936, at the age of 91 years, 6 mos. And 1 day.

He came with his parents to Jonesville, Wisconsin in 1854, where he completed his education. He enlisted in 1881 with Co. F, 33rd Wisconsin Infantry, and served his country thruout the Civil War being honorably discharged with his comrades at the close of that struggle. He was a charter member of Edd Otis Post No. 290, and remained an active member until its closure.

He came to Washington, Iowa in 1867, and was united in marriage to Cynthia Elvira PRATT, Dec. 19, 1868. To this union were born 4 daughters and three sons the wife and three daughters preceded him in death.

In September 1878 (sic, 1873), they came to Ringgold County, and in March 1875 moved to the farm on which they lived until December 1920, when they moved to Clearfield, where he lived until forced to give up his home by his wife's death in May 1923.

November 7, 1924, he was married to Mrs. Lydia Sophia BENSON of Des Moines, Iowa, and they resided there until Sept. 1929 when they came to his home in West Clearfield.

In 1888 he became a member of the Clearfield Methodist Church, under the pastorate of the Rev. Fred HARRIS, and remained a faithful member until his death.

He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, one daughter, Stella Frances HIDLEY, three sons John Adelbert and Boyd Blanchard of Clearfield, IA. and Lester Earle of Oakridge, Oregon; five stepdaughters and four stepsons 18 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren; besides other near relatives and a great host of friends.

Blanchard NEVILL was a faithful defender of his country in time of war, and no less true in time of peace. The influence of his upright character blessed his home and went out to build up the community and nation. He was a splendid representative of the fast diminishing of the "boys in blue". He will be greatly missed, and long remembered.

Funeral services were held on Wednesday afternoon. The congregation filled the Church. Legion men were pallbearers. The pastor spoke from the text, "Be Ye Also Ready." Singing was by Mr. and Mrs. J. R. CREW, Mrs. McKEIVEY and L. H. ANDREWS. Beautiful flowers covered the altar. Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.
