Elkader Register & Argus, Thur., 9 Mar. 1911.

Messages received here today announce the death of Harry Oglesbee at his home, in Independence, yesterday. His remains will be brought here for burial tomorrow (Friday) by way of Osborne, and will be laid to rest on the family lot in the East Side cemetery. Masonic services will be held at the grave at about 5:30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon.

Harry H. Oglesbee was born in Greene county, Ohio, Sept. 3, 1840, the son of Jonothan and Hannah Oglesbee, and came to Iowa with his parents in 1857. Oct. 3, 1861, he enlisted in Company I, Third Missouri Infantry, serving twenty months with them and then re-enlisted in the Sixteenth Ohio. He participated in the battles of Jackson, Miss., Port Hudson, was with Grant at Pe_ Ridge and was present during the siege and at the surrender of Vicksburg. He was mustered out, after three years of faithful service, at St. Louis, Mo.

Shortly after returning he was married to Miss Lucy M. Partch, but their married life was brief, as her death occurred April 2, 1866.

In 1867 he was united in marriage to Mary C. Fuller and one son, James W., was born to them. Mr. Oglesbee was in the farm machinery business and was widely known throughout this section. Always genial and friendly, he made friends of almost everyone with whom he came in contact. His wife died May 2, 1885, and his home being broken up he shortly afterward moved to Independence. A little later he was married again and we understand is survived by the widow and two daughters. His only son James, died in 1894 aged about 19 years.

Mr. Oglesbee has many friends among our readers, who will join us in extending sympathy to the bereaved family.
