WROE, GROVES, GRAVES

Died at his home in Volga, Dec. 7, John Wesley Wroe. He was born at Dovestown, Green county, Penn., Feb. 2nd, 1841.

In 1861 he enlisted in the 6th West Virginia Infantry and served to the end of the war.

He came to Iowa in 1865 and on Oct. 7th, 1876, was united in marriage with Miss Clarinda Groves, who with an adopted son are left to mourn his loss.

The funeral was held Sunday afternoon, attended by a large number who had known him as a kind and charitable friend and neighbor. Rev. Shoemaker preached a good discourse and the body was laid to rest in the Volga cemetery.

Thus one by one those who fought for our country are going, and we say "another old soldier gone," without thinking of the sacrifice they made in their younger days. The sympathy of all goes with the family.

~Elkader Argus, Dec. 12, 1906

Note: buried in Hillcrest cemetery, Volga
