Clayton County Register, Thur., 25 Aug. 1932. Strawberry Point column.

Funeral services of John Gladwin were held at the M.E. church Saturday afternoon conducted by the pastor, Rev. T. J. Elwick. The pall bearers were: Alex Porter, H. J. Esch, J. M. McLane, Chas. Bartels, Wm. Haufle and Howard Steward. Interment took place in the local cemetery.

John Gladwin, oldest son of John and Mary Ann Gladwin, was born in Dubuque, Iowa, March 12, 1864, and departed this life at his home in Strawberry Point, Thursday, August 18, 1932.

His early youth was spent in the vicinity of his birth. His educational training was in the schools of Dubuque. In the spring of 1877, he with his parents and other members of the family moved to Putnam township, Fayette county and in this locality the greater part of his life was spent.

In his chosen profession, that of a farmer, he displayed great interest and devotion and by diligent labor and painstaking care was able to acquire for himself and family a comfortable home.

In the spring of 1910 he decided to leave the farm and move to town. His sterling character and word of honor won for him many staunch friends. In his home no sacrifice seemed too great to be made for the interest of his family. On Aug. 24, 1886, he was united in marriage to Miss May Lang and to this union four children were born, all of whom still live and were able to be with him during his last illness.

He leaves to mourn his passing his immediate family, his bereaved wife, Mrs. Edith May Gladwin, his four children, William O. Gladwin of Strawberry Point; Mrs. Mary L. Cole of Lamont; Mrs. Beulah Glenn Frederick and Mrs. Dorothy Blanche Wilson of Strawberry Point; five sisters and one brother, Mrs. Mary Taylor of Lamont; Mrs. Dorothy Frye of Chowchilla, Ca.; the Misses Alice and Nora Gladwin of Arlington; Mrs. Ella Carpenter of Sumner; and Oliver C. Gladwin of Jamesville, Wis. He also leaves seven grandchildren and other relatives and friends.

One brother Joseph Gladwin, one sister Sarah Ann Gladwin and four grandchildren preceded him in death.

A good husband and father, a loyal friend, a helpful neighbor, a man of honesty and integrity has passed to his reward.
