Clearfield Enterprise
Clearfield, Iowa
June 5, 1924

OBITUARY ~ NEWTON WILLIAM WOLFORD

Newton William Wolford, son of William and Mary Wolford was born in the state of Illinois April 14, 1863. He grew to manhood near Desorra, that state, and there on March 8, 1892, he united in marriage to Miss Mary G. Larson. They came that spring to Iowa, making their home on the farm two miles north of Clearfield, maintaining there a continuous residence until about four years ago, at which time they sold the farm and have since lived in Clearfield. Both husband and wife were through the years identified in the support of all good and worthy causes and were represented in sustaining the social activities of the community.

The deceased is survived by his wife; by three brothers, Charles and Oliver, resident at Desorra, Illinois; and Daniel, resident of Missouri; by two sisters, Mrs. J. W. Bladon of Clearfield and Mrs. Nancy Dewey of Washington, Iowa. He passed away at his late residence in Clearfield, on Wednesday, May 28, 1924. The ministry of the devoted wife, to which was added all that careful nursing and the best that medical science could do to arrest the disease and restore the sufferer to health and length of days, were all of no avail. It was not time, but disease, that took him when just entered upon the last decade of his "three score and ten" years.

Mr. Wolford has been a loyal member of the local camp, Modern Woodman of America, and that order honored the departed neighbor by a large attendance at the funeral, the Foresters being in uniform. Services were conducted at the Methodist church at 1:00 p. m. on May 30th. Rev Carl Brown of ShannonCity; an old time friend of the family, and former pastor, officiating. The floral offerings were remarkable in quantity, and were beautiful. Friends crowded the church to pay their last respect to the memory of this esteemed neighbor and fellow citizen. Interment was in Clearfield Cemetery.
