He spent his early life in Mt Ayr, Iowa. He came to Greenfield and was employed here for several years. Before his marriage he had built the home which has been the family home for 38 years, in the same house in which he died. Here he was married to Mary HEATHERINGTON Oct 5, 1899 by the Rev.

Of his family, one sister Nora died in childhood. There remains three brothers, Edgar WALL of Long Beach, Calif; Dr. Luther WALL of Burlington, Iowa; Frank WALL of Galesville, Wis. and one sister, Mrs. Rosetta GALLOWAY of Helena, Mont. There are four grandchildren.

Since the daughter's marriage, he has made his home with her and her husband. He had been in declining health for some time and slipped away at the turn of the night on May 8.

He was known to many people of the time for he had spent much of his life here. He was patient and quiet in his life, and had made many friends throughout the town and community.
