Death of H. L. Walton - Decatur County Journal, 16 AUG 1894

Lenhart Walton died suddenly early Friday morning near the residence of his
son-in-law, Henry Oney, in Eden Township. He was engaged in watering a
horse at a well about a quarter mile distant from the house when he was
seized with hemorrhage of the lungs and died almost instantly. Mrs. William
Fletcher saw his fall, but when the neighbors reached him his soul had taken
flight across the silent river. He had been in failing health for some time
but recently had improved so as to be about and was in town the day before
his death. Funeral services were held by the Rev. G. M. Hughes at the
residence of Henry Oney after which internment occurred at t Chastain
Cemetery. He was buried by the Masonic Fraternity of which he had long been
a faithful member. H. L. Walton was born at Williamsport, Pennsylvania in
1816. At an early age he moved with his parents to Marion County, Ohio
where he grew to manhood on his father's farm. In 1838 he married Elizabeth
Clark, to which union eight children were born, only four of whom are now
living. In October 1853 he settled with his wife and eight children on a
farm in Eden Township, where he resided for twenty two years. In 1884 his
wife died and subsequently married Miss Lucy Loving, daughter of John
Loving, who lived but a short time afterwards. The deceased was one of the
pioneers of '53 and belonged to a class of whom in a brief generation
transformed an unbroken wilderness into a cultivated region of thrift and
prosperity. We was an honorable aiable, unobtrusive citizen. The highest
mead of praise that can be respected and loved by those who knew him best
and this can be truthfully said of our lamented friend. Peace to his
ashes - may he sleep tranquil.

Obituary of Benjamin F. Hall - The Osceola Democrat, Thursday, 26 JUL 1900

Benjamin F. Hall, a citizen of Greenbay Township since 1859, died Monday,
July 22, at 8:00 a.m. after a three weeks' illness with carbuncle which at
last created a pressure on the nerves and brain inducing coma and death. He
was sixty six years of age and had been an active and prominent citizen of
the township until recent years, when his unusual weight combined with
rheumatism had forced him to remain inactive. He leaves his wife and two
sons and a daughter with many friends made in the course of an honorable and
honored life. He belonged to the Christian church and Rev. Dyer of the
denomination came from Decatur County and conducted the funeral services at
his home Tuesday at 11 a.m. The funeral was a very large one, friends
coming from Leon and other points at a distance to show their respect for
the deceased. The burial was in Greenbay Cemetery where his father and
other relatives are lying. Thus closes the record of another of Clarke
County's rugged, worthy pioneers who reaped a good material reward for his
labors and now enters into rest."
