Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
September 16, 1915

OBITUARY ~ ISAIAH Van WINKLE

Isaiah Van Winkle was born in Ohio on March 4th, 1845; died September 10th, 1915; age, 70 years, 6 months, 6 days. In 1850 he, with his parents moved to Washington County, Iowa, where he grew to manhood. He enlisted for service August, 1861, in Company K, 25th Iowa Infantry. He was honorably discharged from service in 1863 on account of disability.

He was united in marriage to Miss Marinda E. Blackman in Wapello County, Iowa, November 13, 1866. To this union were born six children, all of whom survive him except Mrs. Ada M. Jackson, who died 23 years ago, and Roy E. who died in infancy.

Those present at the funeral services were Mrs. Cora B. Smith of Tingley; Mrs. Grace L. Ray, who live near Maloy; and one son, Fay F., who lives at the parental home in Clearfield, Iowa; also five grandchildren; his three brothers, Perry C. of Washington, Iowa; Henry of Mount Ayr, Iowa; and William of Lamoni, Iowa; and one sister. Mrs. L. Sands of Webster City, Iowa.

Two sisters, Mrs. Alice N. Edwards of Ellinsville, Illinois, and Mrs. Mary Robinson of London Mills, Illinois, could not be present.

He moved with his family from Wapello Co. to Ringgold Co. in 1885 and lived on his farm 8 miles southeast of Clearfield until September 7th, 1905, when he moved to his present home in Clearfield where his final summons came on Friday, September 10th, at about 3:20 p. m. While at manual labor he had a stroke of apoplexy from which he never regained consciousness, and lived only a few minutes.

He was converted while yet a young man and joined the Methodist Episcopal church, of which he was a faithful member until death. He believed in a Christ that could save from all sin.

He was a kind and faithful husband, a loving father, and an obliging neighbor, ready to lend a helping hand at all times. He had convictions of what he believed to be right and acted upon them, yet was, like others, not faultless.

Funeral services were held in the Methodist church Sunday afternoon September 12th, at 2:30 p. m.; conducted by W. D. Merryman. The scripture lesson was Psalm 91 and I Corinthians 15:34-57; text, 49th verse.[POEM]
