GEORGE STUTEVILLE was born in Indiana, February 22, l829, and died at
his home north of Pleasanton, august 20, l90l, being thus on the day of
his death 72 years, 5 months and 28 days old. He came with his parents
to Richmond, Illinois, in l832 and afterwards located in Decatur
County. March 20, l855, he married MISS MARY MCMURTRY and farmed near
Lineville until l878 when the couple located on the present homestead.
To this marriage ten children were born of whom the following survive:
MRS. HOMER THARP, MRS. VANBEEK of Ottumwa, MRS. BAKER OF KANSAS, MISS
ELLA, JOHN, W.M., FRANK and HOMER.
MR. STUTEVILLE was a devoted Christian. In l858 he united with the
Cumberland Presbyterians and afterwards with the United Brethren, and in
l887 became a member of the Providence Missionary Baptist Church. The
funeral services occurred at the residence August 2l, l90l, and were
conducted by Rev. Cyrus Devoe. Interment took place in Hamilton
Cemetery and the funeral cortege was composed of many bereaved relatives
and friends.
A good man, a worthy citizen has left us and we hope and believe has
gone to a bright reward. We hasten to contribute a token of affection
upon the altar of his memory. The rapid flight of years, the frequent
death of friends and associates, the realization that we are growing
old, all tend to inspire us with the hope of immortality. "Be ye also
ready for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh."
