Twice-A-Week News
Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa
June 7, 1901

OBITUARY - DANIEL SCHLAPIA

Daniel SCHLAPIA died Wednesday noon at his home in Delphos, aged 78 years. He had been in feeble health for some time and for the last ten days it was evident that he was on his death bed.

Mr. SCHLAPIA was one of the pioneers of the County, having lived here for 45 years. He leaves a widow and four children - John SCHLAPIA and Charles W. SCHLAPIA of near Benton, Iowa, Mrs. C. W. CLARK of Delphos, Iowa, and Frank SCHLAPIA of California.

The funeral was conducted at 2:30 yesterday afternoon from the Methodist Church in Benton, Iowa by Rev. JONES, the Evangelical pastor at Grant City, Missouri. Mr. SCHLAPIA was formerly a Methodist but joined the Evangelical Church for convenience after removing to Delphos. Burial was made in the Benton Cemetery.

OBITUARY - DANIEL SCHLAPIA

Another of Ringgold County's pioneers has passed away. On Wednesday June 5, 1901, Daniel SCHLAPIA, a well known resident of Rice township, died at his home in Delphos, Iowa. Father SCHLAPIA had been a sufferer from dropsy for more than a year, but was confined to his bed only about two weeks.

Mr. SCHLAPIA was born in Burks County, Pennsylvania, October 24, 1822. On September 26, 1844, Mr. SCHLAPIA was married to Miss Elizabeth DRUCK. They remained in Pennsylvania about three years. From there they moved to Michigan where they lived for about eight years. They moved from Michigan to Iowa in 1847, and have lived in Iowa ever since. They came 45 years ago to Ringgold County, where they resided until he was removed from labor to his reward.

Mr. SCHLAPIA united with the Evangelical Church about 16 years ago, remaining faithful until death.

Mr. and Mrs. SCHLAPIA were blessed with eight children, five sons and three daughters. Two sons and two daughters preceded the father, leaving a faithful and loving wife, three sons and one daughter to mourn his departure. But they do not mourn with no hope as those who have no hope.

His loving wife and children were at his bedside when he passed from time to eternity except one son who lives in California.

The funeral was preached by Rev. L. A. JONES of Grant City, Missouri in the Methodist Church at Benton, Iowa June 6, 1901 and the remains laid to rest in the beautiful cemetery north of Benton. (Benton Cemetery, Benton, IA)
