William K. Neal, of Johns township, this county, died very suddenly while at Plano on business last Thursday. He had been ailing for some time, but neither he nor his friends thought that anything serious was the matter with him. He had transacted his business, and, in company with his father, was in the carriage starting for home, when paralysis of the heart seems to have struck him; he was removed from his carriage by friends and carried into the store of Stone & Needham, where he lived only a few minutes, dying apparently without pain. The deceased was one of the active citizens of the township in which he lived, having so lived as to gain the respect and esteem of all who know him, as was abundantly proven by the large concourse of friends who accompanied his remains to their last resting place at the Concord Cemetery. He leaves three children who will find good homes among his relatives as their mother died several years ago. Many of the old soldiers will read this notice with regret, as deceased was a member of Co. I, 36 Reg't. Iowa Volunteers. He was known in the army by the more familiar name "Stemmer". All will recollect him, always ready for duty, never flinching from any responsibility, good-natured, and known as the jolliest fellow in the regiment. He was born in Green county, Pa., Dec. 16, 1843, and had he lived till Sunday, would have been 50 years old; has been a resident of Iowa since 1857. His father and relations desire to return their thanks to their many friends who aided them and administered to them in their sore affliction.
