From the College Springs Press - Hiram Booth was born in Holmes County, Ohio nearly 83 years ago. He moved with his family to Iowa and settled in Allamakee county in 1849. For the past 30 years he has made his home in Monona, Clayton county.
He enlisted Oct. 22, 1862, in Co. F, 6th regiment Iowa Volunteer Cavalry, serving until discharged by the government.
He united with the Presbyterian church when a young man.
A few weeks ago he came to College Springs on a visit to his daughter, Mrs. Hattie L. Martin. Three weeks ago he was taken ill with pneumonia. All was done for him that could be done, but extreme age and an already enfeebled constitution gave but little promise of recovery. He gradually weakened until on Sunday morning, March 19, 1905, he was released from pain and suffering.
He leaves a son, Horace Booth, of Longmont, Colo., and two daughters, Mrs. Hattie L. Martin, of College Springs, Iowa, and Mrs. Mary Hand, of Rolla, Mo., together with other relatives.
His funeral took place from the M.E. Church at College Springs, at 10 a.m. Tuesday, March 21st, conducted by Rev. Dr. A.T. Jeffry, the pastor.
He was laid to rest in Maple Hill.
