On Sunday July 6th, 1884 at about 4 o’clock p.m. occurred the death of one of our highly respected citizens, Robert Pimley, at the age of 40. The deceased has long been sufferer form inflammatory rheumatism, and a complication of diseases, and his sufferings have been terrible.

He leaves a wife and six children to mourn the loss of a dear husband and father, also an aged father, who will miss his son greatly, as will the large circle of friends he has made among us.

Deceased was a solider in the late war, and nobly did his part towards the preservation of the Union and was a pensioner of the government for injuries received while in the service.

The funeral which occurred on Monday was conducted by Bevins Post, G.A.R., of this place, assisted by members of Boardman Post, G.A.R., Elkader, under command of T.M. Davidson. The funeral sermon was preached at the M.E. church by Rev. J. G. Whitford, after which all that was once mortal of Robert Pimley was consigned to its last resting place in the Volga city cemetery, at this place. The pall bearers were comrades, F.N. Phillips, O.A. Phillips, S. Morse, David Lowe, Alex, Wandell and Joseph Ewing.
