OBITUARY ~ ADDISON PORTER

Addison Porter was born Dec 15, 1839, near Sardis, Monroe Co., Ohio. He died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Richard Stamper, Dec. 28, 1922, aged 83 years and 13 days.

He was married May 22, 1852 to Miss Sarah Ann Bontrager; to this union 12 children were born; Mrs. Mary Riley of Corning; Margaret [deceased); James, Charles, and Robert of Creston; Frank of Prescott; Wm. of Des Moines; John of Enid, Oklahoma; Mrs. Jennie Stamper, Clearfield; Mrs. Addie Nash of Polk City; Harry of Fort Calhoun, Nebr; and Earl of Lenox, Iowa.

Mr. Porter and his wife moved to Appanoose, County, Iowa, where they lived one year and then moved to Ringgold County, Iowa, where they have lived the most of the time since.

Mr. Porter has been very feeble for some time. About three weeks ago he had a stroke of paralysis, and since that time grew steadily weaker until Thursday morning Dec. 28, when death came to his relief.

Mr. Porter had been a professing Christian for about twenty years and for the last eight years had been a member of the Grant Center M. E. Church.

He leaves besides his surviving children, forty-seven grandchildren, twenty-two great grand children, besides other relatives and friends.

His faithful wife preceded him less than two months ago to the Better World.

Funeral services in charge of the Pastor, Rev. Virgil W. Henderson was held at the home Saturday Dec. 30 at 2 p. in. Interment was made in Clearfield Cemetery.
