Death of a Former Resident
Near Battle Creek, Madison county, Nebraska, on February 21st, 1887, occurred the death of Wm. Harrison Spangler, aged 49 years.
Deceased was born in the state of Ohio, and at an early age emigrated with his parents to Clayton county, Iowa, locating near Osterdock. He was residing there on the breaking out of the rebellion, and responded to the call for volunteers by enlisting in Co. G, 21st Iowa, of which W.A. Benton was captain. He was soon promoted to sergeant and served as such until mustered out of service on account of disease of the lungs and liver, which finally resulted in his death.
He has answered his last roll call on earth and reported to the Grand Army above, where God is the supreme commander. He was a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian church, and also of A.J. Smith Post, G.A.R., of Elkport.
Some time ago he removed to Nebraska, where his death occurred and where he leaves a wife, two sons and many friends to mourn his death.
