Mrs. Jacob Stull

Eleanor Rebecca Stull was born at Juda, Wis., on October 21st, 1849, the daughter of Guy P. and Martha Clark Humphrey, and died at her home in Beaman, Iowa, February 20, 1930. Her girlhood was spent in the home of her birth. On November 1st, 1868, she was united in marriage to Jacob Stull of the same community.

After a residence of five years, the young people moved to Jasper county, Iowa, and after another five years they moved to Clark county. Two years later they came to their farm in Grundy county, where they made their home until moving to Beaman in 1909, where she since resided. Mr. Stull died in 1925.

Mrs. Stull was the mother of six children, five of whom are still living: Guy H. and Mrs. Mary Herron of Green Mountain; Clarence, west of Beaman; J.

Besides her sons and daughter, she is survived by fourteen grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Stull was a member of the Baptist church, but has worked within the M.E. church since coming to Beaman. She was active in the affairs of the community, and by her genial disposition made many friends during her long residence here. She thoroughly enjoyed her work. Through the long years of life she was blessed with usually good health, but during her last few months her strength seemed to fall and at the midnight hour she quietly passed to her reward.

Funeral services were held from the home at 2 p.m. Sunday in charge of Rev. H. H. Schmidt of the M.E. church of Beaman. Burial was made in the Oakland cemetery at Beaman. The pallbearers were Chas. Vint, E. McMartin, E. G. Elliott, T. L. Evans, Geo. A. Hitchcock and M. A. Artz.
