Elkader Register & Argus, Thur., 3 July 1919. Fairview column.

The body of Uriah Oldham was brought to his old home here for burial on Wednesday of last week. Mr. Oldham had been making his home in Des Moines with his son, Coyne. Some time during the high water of the early spring he was drowned in the Des Moines river. Although the police dragged the river several times the body was not recovered until the 23rd. Mr. Oldham's body was accompanied by his son, Coyne, of Des Moines, and daughter, Mrs. Pearl Kephart, of Kansas City. They were joined here by Mr. and Mrs. Earl Henry of Cresco. Following the burial service at the Browns Cemetery on Wednesday afternoon in charge of Rev. Riggs, Mr. Oldham's children went with Mr. and Mrs. Henry to Cresco for a short visit with his wife's people. Uriah Oldham was born in Pennsylvania and was brought to Iowa by his parents when a boy of eight. They located in this neighborhood which has been Mr. Oldham's home ever since. He was married to Miss Lucy Studebaker in 1872, and seven children were born to them, four of whom are still living. His wife preceded him in death in 1892. His own death occurred at the age of seventy-two.
