In Memoriam.
William H. Linderman - The subject of this sketch was born in the state of New York, February 29, 1824, in which year his parents moved to Manchester, Illinois. He was united in marriage with Miss Permelia Adams, November 3, 1846. In 1854 with his family, he came to Chickasaw county, Iowa, settling on the farm in Dresden Township, where he has since made his home. Of a family of eight children three survive to mourn his loss; viz. M.H. Linderman, Ed. Linderman and Mrs. Fannie Wesp, the mother having died aobut two years since.

Mr. Linderman will always be remembered as one of the sturdy pioneers of this section, bearing cheerfully the burdens incident to life and labor in the "wild west" doing manfully his full share in making Chickasaw county what it is to-day, one of the very best and most properous counties in the commonwealth of Iowa.

After a lingering and painful illness of several weeks, he peacefully passed away on Jan. 27, 1898, at the well rounded age of 73 years, 10 months, and 27 days. The great respect in which he was held in this community, and the esteem and affection for him, was most touching and fittingly demonstrated by the immense concourse of neightbors and friends who gathered at the old home on Saturday, Jan. 29th, in token of their last tribute of love and respect for his memory.

Rev. C.V. Bently of the Baptist church in this city delivered a very touching and feeling address, from the beautiful text, "God is Love," Dr Pitts, Mrs. C.T Haskett and N. Wesp sang several beautiful numbers; (with organ accompaniment by Miss Maude Grems.) He was then followed to the West Ceemetery where he was tenderly laid to rest beside the "loved one gone before." Together they shared the joys, the sorrows, the tasks, the triumphs, and trials of life; Together may they "rest from their labors," while the good work of a life time will "follow them".
"Friend after friend departs,
Who has not lost a friend;
There is no union here, of hearts,
That has not here, an end."

Silently, swiftly, slowly, these noble, grand and worthy land marks of the
"old days" are passing to eternal rest.
A Friend.
