OBITUARY - JOHN S. STEADMAN

AUGUST 29, 1917

John S. STEADMAN passed away Friday, August 24th, 1917, at his home in Delphos, aged 70 years,6 months and 25 days.

Mr. STEADMAN was born in Noble county,Ohio, January 29, 1847, and came to Guthrie county, Iowa, in 1870. On February 6, 1873, he was united in marriage to Miss Delia WILLEY and for two years the young couple made their home in Guthrie county. He came to Ringgold county and settled at his old home in the Hickory Grove community where he resided until about fifteen years ago when he became a citizen of Delphos engaging in the mercantile business in which he continued until the time of his death. Mr. STEADMAN was a man of unimpeachable character and sterling qualities, ever stimulating and upholding righteousness in the communities in which he lived.

In his early life he was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church and later in life untied with the Adventist Christian church at Hickory Grove in which he ever lived a consistent christian life, an honor to the church and an inspiration of righteousness to all who knew him. The church he loved and the community in which he lived sustain an irreparable loss in his death, bringing upon them a sadness and gloom dispelled only by the thought that our world has been made better and our lives richer because he has lived and the hope that we shall meet him again in that other and better land where death shall be a stranger and sorrow, pains and tears forever gone.

Mr. STEADMAN leaves to mourn his loss a wife and six children - Mrs. Peter RUSH, Mrs. J. M. ADDISON, Mrs. B. F. SEATON, Mrs. Ed GEIGER, Mrs. S. C. RICE and Mr. L. B STEADMAN, all of Delphos. Mr. STEADMAN was of a famiy of fourteen children of which six sisters and four brothers survive him.

Funeral services were conducted in the Hickory Grove Chapel by Rev. T. E. GLENDENNING. Interment was made in Hickory Grove cemetery.
