    • Death of William Delzell.

      William Delzell died at his home north of town, Friday, January 10th (1908), his last illness extending over some months.

      The funeral services were conducted from the family residence Saturday afternoon by Reverend C. R. Zimmerman of this city. The interment was at the Rice cemetery north of town.

      Mr. Delzell was born in Ohio, July 9th, 1833. He came to Louisa county, Iowa, with his father, Wm. Delzell, in 1848. He was united in marriage to Caroline Curran in 1859. Mrs. Delzell passed away about a year ago, and two of their nine children died in early youth.

      Four sons, Frank C., Isaac and George, of this vicinity, and Wesley of Davis county, and three daughters, Mrs. John Bucher of this place, Mrs. Blanche Bean of Wapello, and Mrs. Carrie Hayclen of Oakville, are left to mourn the death of the father. All were present at the funeral except Mrs. Hayden, who was sick at home.

      For almost forty years Mr. Delzell suffered with an affliction in one of his eyes. This together with his retiring disposition led him to lead rather a secluded life. His kindness as a husband and father was much spoken of and his exemplary life of patience and self-denial are the priceless remembrances of his children. He expressed his regret at not having united with the visible church, but to the great comfort of his family, acknowledged his Savior and relied on Divine help to bear his extraordinary suffering. For the last few years the affliction in his eye was more malignant and in spite of the best medical skill finally caused his death.

      Mr.. Delzell had two full brothers and two full sisters living at the time of his death, James Delzell of Kansas, Harvey Delzell, Mrs. Martha Nichols and Mrs. Mary Wright of Morning >Bun. Mrs. Jamison, another full sister, perished in the fire that destroyed her home here a few years ago. The mother of this pioneer family died of heart failure in Ohio, while at church with her youngest child Mary in her arms. Of the three half brothers, Robert S. Delzell alone is living.
