Ezra Monlux, who lived for many years in Wagner township, died Wednesday morning, Nov. 4, 1891, at eleven o’clock. He lived to the age of 83 years, 6 months, 10 days. His death is deeply deplored by his many friends. Funeral services were held at the United Brethren church.

Ezra Monlux, son of William and Margaret (Drum) Monlux, was born April 24, 1808 in West Liberty, Va. When two years old his father moved to Ohio near Zanesville where he worked at farming and at his trade of shoemaking. Our subject was educated in common schools of that place. At the age of twenty-one he left home and worked on the turnpike in Ohio three years; then purchased a tract of 100 acres of lumber land which by hard labor he converted into a farm with a good house and out-buildings. In 1856 he sold his place and bought 210 acres of land on Sec. 7 and 18, Wagner township. He erected a house on section 18 where he died. His farm is well improved and one of the finest in this section of Wagner township.

Mr. Monlux was married to Susannah Wagner, a native of Pennsylvania, born August 15, 1810. This union was blessed with ten children, seven living, Margret, William, John, George, Charles, Ezra and Eliza. His wife died Aug. 11, 1879. He lived on the old homestead with his youngest daughter, Eliza.

In politics he was a republican. In time of war he furnished four boys to defend our country’s flag. He is well and favorably known in the community in which he lived as a man of integrity, worth and a representative citizen of Clayton Co. He now sleeps his sleep of peace.
