DEATH of T. A. STEVENSON.
Announcement of the death of
Thomas A. STEVENSON, who passed away Saturday, April 28, at the
Iowa Lutheran hospital in Des Moines, was received with profound sorrow by friends in Mount Ayr.
Mr. STEVENSON was seventy-two years of age. He was born in Franklin county, Ohio, March 27, 1851,
and when a young man came with his parents to Ringgold county, settling in Jefferson township
in what was then known as the Eugene community. He was reared to agricultural pursuits and
obtained a good common school education. He taught the first term of school at Eugene, in a log
school house, in the winter of 1869-'70. Mr. STEVENSON was one of the most highly respected
citizens of Ringgold county; a man respected for his sterling qualities as a citizen, and known
as a christian gentleman. He was a stanch (sic) member of the United Presbyterian church and
was ever faithful in the discharge of his duties. He served for three years as a member of the
board of supervisors in the eighties and his council in matters pertaining to the welfare of
the county was eagerly sought by those in positions of responsibility. Active in business and
keenly interested in all matters pertaining to the upbuilding of the community in which he
lives, his death seems an irreparable loss.
The funeral was held Monday afternoon from the United Presbyterian church in Shannon City and
was largely attended. Interment was in the Shannon City [Oakland] cemetery.
