OBITUARY ~ MAYNARD BEN WILLIAMSON

Maynard Ben Williamson, son of E. B. and Caroline Williamson, was born at Boonville, New York on Dec. 30 1854. He died at the home of his son Roy Williamson, near Clearfield, Iowa, Oct. 28th, 1922. aged 67 years, 9 months, and 28 days. In 1853 he moved with his parents to Illinois, and was there married to Eperva Routh on Jan. 9th, 1877.

To this union was born eight children, one of whom died in infancy. Those who survive their father are:óJ. D. of St. Joseph, Mo.; Arthur of Murdock, Minnesota, Roy of Clearfield; Earnest of Murdock, Minnesota, Mrs. DeVoy Smith of St. Joseph; Fred and Mrs. Henry Sornson, Murdock, Minnesota. He also leaves an aged mother, ninety-one years of age; one sister, Mrs. Helen Hopple of Hopkins, Missouri; and one brother, Alonzo Williamson of Bedford, Iowa. Besides there are nine grandchildren and a host of other relatives and friends.

Mr. Williamson was a member of the Methodist Church, and lived nearly all his life in that communion. He had suffered greatly during many years, but endured with patience the ills of the flesh.

The funeral services were held at Clearfield Methodist church Sunday afternoon, and the congregation nearly filled the church. The pallbearers were nephews, five sons and one son-in-law of Mr Williamson's sister, Mrs. Helen Hopple of Hopkins. The floral offerings were very beautiful. After the service the body was taken to Clearfield Cemetery for interment.

All of the sons and daughters attended the funeral, and in some cases their wives and husbands. Also the only brother, Alonzo Williamson of Bedford, with his wife. Two nieces and their husbands from Creston; besides relatives from Parnell and Sheridan Missouri. Mrs. George Palmer came from Galesburg, Illinois. She is a sister of Mrs. Williamson, and of Harve and J. W. Routh.
