Ringgold Record-News, 1887

OBITUARY.

Wm. Martin POTTORFF was born in Ringgold County, Iowa, August 2nd, 1858. He was married to Laura A. AUSTIN about seven years ago. Died of typhoid fever August 22nd, 1887, aged 29 years and 20 days.

The subject of this sketch has lived most his life in Ringgold county, where his acquaintance is extensive, being too well known to require an eulogy to have him memory cherish. As a citizen he was honest; as a neighbor, obliging; as a husband and father, kind and affectionate. Some years ago he professed faith in Christ and was active in church work for some time, when he seemed to fall away, but during his last sickness he again called on his savior. He leaves a widow and two bright little boys, a father, mother and several brothers and sisters to mourn his departure. On account of sickness in the family, the funeral was deferred until Sunday, December 4th, when it was attended by a large concourse of people. Sermon by the writer from Josh. 3, 19.
