DIED. At his residence, in Grand Meadow township, near Postville, Feb. 14th, Mr. A. GANO, aged about 69 years.
Deceased had been for several years at intervals, a sufferer from a serious combination of incurable disorders.
Mr. GANO was an early settler in this vicinity, a kind-hearted man, a good neighbor, and universally respected by all who knew him.
Mr. Alva GANO died last Sabbath evening at 8:30 in his home one mile south-east of Postville. He was buried Wednesday, Feb. 17, 1886, in the cemetery at Postville.
Mr. GANO was born in June, 1821, in Brown Co., New York, moved into Clayton Co., Iowa in 1851, where he has lived ever since.
He was the father of five children, four daughters and one son. The latter died in the army during our late civil war.
His wife, well advanced in years and in feeble health, survives him. Those who personally knew the deceased say he was an honest man, a good husband, father and neighbor. As such he will be much missed by a large circle of relatives and friends. (by J.W. FERNER)
