Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
November 22, 1923

OBITUARY ~ JOHN TILLIER

John Tillier was born Nov. 27th, 1825, in the Dominion of Canada. He died Saturday, Nov. 17, 1923, aged 97 years, 11 months, and 20 days. His death occurred at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Kendall, near Sharpsburg where he had made his home for some time. Mr. Tillier was before his death much the oldest resident of the community, and probably the oldest of any record in Clearfield and vicinity.

His wife preceded him in death Sept. 28th, 1920, being also far along in years. They came to this community in 1875, and lived first in Ringgold county northeast of Clearfield, later moving to the farm two miles northwest where he lived until a few years since.

So far as now known, there survive three children, and one daughter died years ago. Those who survive are Mrs. Minnie Peterson, John and Charlie. Only the last named was able to attend the funeral.

Mr. Tillier's family history is of much interest. One of his grandfathers was a drummer boy in the army of Marquis De Lafayette, when the latter was assisting the Colonies to gain their independence. Marshal Foch, General-in-Chief at the end of the World War was a second cousin of John Tellier. He lived thru the most wonderful century in world history.

For many years Mr. Tellier had been a member of Clearfield Church of Christ, and the funeral was held in the church on Sunday afternoon, conducted by the pastor, W. A. Purdy. Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.

Not lost blest thought, but gone before,
Where we shall meet to part no more.
