The Ringgold Record, 1886
NOTICE of DEATH.
--DIED--Jas. T. TODD, of consumption, at his residence in Grant township, Ringgold
county, Iowa, on May 17, 1886, in his 29th year.
He was one of the most successful
young men in Ringgold county, and if he had been blessed with continued good health, would have
stood in the front ranks of business and wealth. But he began failing a good while
ago, and his decline was steady until the end was reached last Monday. It is a serious
loss to any community to lose so enterprising and progressive a man as he, and he will
be sadly missed by friends as well as relatives. He was followed to his last resting
place by a large throng of sorrwing (sic) people. He carried a $2,000 policy in the
Bankers' Life Insurance Company, which with his other property will place his wife and
two children beyond the reach of the gaunt wolf.
[Interment Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr, Iowa.]
