Abraham W. Maxwell has been allowed a restoration and increase of pension. This is good luck and comes as a sort of a present from the government in honor of his golden wedding, recently celebrated. But the government shouldn’t wait till its soldiers have reached the period of golden weddings before allowing them their just dues. (Emmet County Republican, Estherville, IA, August 27, 1896)

A Nonogenarian Dead
A. W. Maxwell, Age Ninety-one Years, Dies at His Home in This City

A.W. Maxwell died at his home on east Lincoln street in this city Sunday morning at 9:30 at the age of ninety-one years, six months and a day. He had been quite feeble for several months and his death was not wholly unexpected. Only a short time ago he and Mrs. Maxwell, who still survives him, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary. They have resided in Estherville the past twenty years and deceased has been recognized as one of our best and loyal citizens.

His death is the sad parting of two almost life companions. Mrs. Maxwell is also past ninety years of age. Besides the aged widow four children are left to mourn his death, Mrs. D. C. Maxwell of Helena, Mont., who is here to attend the funeral, Mrs. Hattie Billings, of LaCrosse, Wis., another daughter in England and Wm. Maxwell living southeast of Estherville. Funeral services will be held in the Methodist church at two o’clock this afternoon. (Estherville Democrat, Estherville, IA, February 20, 1907)
