ANOTHER PIONEER GONE.
Mrs. Isaac Wheeler Passed Away Tuesday of This Week.
One by one the pioneers are falling. On Tuesday of this week occurred the death of Mrs. Isaac Wheeler, one of the pioneer women of central Iowa. Mrs. Wheeler located in this community in 1851 and through all the intervening years, practically, has been a resident of the vicinity.
Mrs. Wheeler was born in Montgomery county, Ind., April 18, 1832, and at the time of her death Jan. 19, 1899, was 76 years, 7 months, and 1 day of age.
She came from Indiana with her parents in 1851, locating in Dallas county just south-east of Madrid. On Aug. 24, 1852 she was married to Isaac Wheeler, and to the union was born one child, who died at the age of 19 years.
Mrs. Wheeler has been a serious sufferer from rheumatism for the past 30 years, the main portion of the time being unable to leave the house.
She united with the Christian church before leaving Indiana and has continued a member of this church ever since.
She leaves to mourn, her aged husband, Isaac Wheeler, and five brothers and two sisters as follows: Samuel Stover of Kansas, Isaac Stover of Madrid, George Stover of Idaho, Henderson Stover of Washington, Joseph Stover of Madrid, Mrs. Wood of Nebraska, and Mrs. Wm. Hoop of Madrid.
The funeral was held yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the home of her brother, Isaac Stover in Madrid, conducted by Rev. W. D. Harward, pastor of the Christian church. The remains were interred in the Mr. Hope cemetery. Peace be to her ashes.
