OBITUARY - EARL BARTHOLOMEW. Dunkerton, Jan. 22 - Earl Bartholomew died January 9, 1915, at his home near Dunkerton. He had been sick about five months and during this time his sufferings were intense. He went to Rochester three times for treatment, had different local physicians to advise him and finally went to Chicago. The surgeon at Chicago located his disease as cancer of the bones. Mr. Bartholomew was in his forty-seventh year and up to the time of his present sickness was a hearty and robust man in the best of health. His father, Alfred Bartholomew, died in Dunkerton July 29, 1913, and his mother December 14, 1914. Two brothers-Daniel of St. Thomas, N.D., Burt of Dunkerton-with Mrs. Alice Wheeler and Martha Northrup of Dunkerton; Mrs. Eliza Magee of Wisconsin; Mrs. Gertie Vanderlip of North Dakota and Mrs. Minnie Kint of Canada, his sisters, survive him and all were present when the end came, excepting Mrs. Kint. September 1, 1890, he was married to Miss Geneve Van Etten, from which union four children were born; Joe, Margie, Dan and Grace. In 1903 he united with the Baptist church in Dunkerton and was an honored member to the day of his death. Appropriate funeral services were held in the Baptist church Jan. 12 by Rev. D. A. Ramey, the Baptist minister. Music was provided by the quartet, F. P. Davis, Errol Canfield, Louie Fressie and H. W. Brant, and a solo, "The Better Land" by Mrs. F. P. Davis. The floral offerings were profuse and beautiful. As Mr. Bartholomew was born and reared in this community, he was known by all and held in the highest esteem and favor. The church was filled to overflowing. The Woodmen turned out in body, took charge of the casket, placed it into a steel vault and then into the grave. All those who knew him extend condolence and tenderest sympathies to the widow, children, brothers and sisters. Earl Bartholomew was a righteous man and has passed to his reward.
