Obituary of Noah Dalton
Noah Dalton, former resident of Reinbeck, was the victim of an accidental gassing in the cellar of his home last Monday evening. His body was found in the basement of the home by his widow and a friend, Mrs. Chas. Walensky. The women smelled gas in the house and found Dalton's body lying on a bench of planks in the basement, near a gas stove.
Dalton has been in ill health for some time, suffering from heart attacks and dizziness. The coroner gave it as his opinion that Dalton had suffered a heart attack and fallen against the handle of the gas burner. It was turned on only a little way and all windows and the door of the cellar were open.
Noah Dalton was born Aug. 16, 1893, in Monticello, Ky., the son of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Dalton. He enlisted in the army Sept. 20, 1917, at Grundy Center and served a year overseas. He received various citations and medals. He was severely gassed in one engagement and had since suffered various ailments as a result.
For the past ten years he had been employed as a cutter by the Hinson manufacturing company, and previous to that farmed in Grundy county.
He married Mrs. LeRoy Eckles at Grundy Center Oct. 27, 1928, who was formerly Miss Leona Shafstal, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jonas Shafstal of Morrison.
Surviving are the widow, his parents now residing at Zala, Ky., and an adopted daughter, Marian, at home; two brothers in Kentucky, and three sisters.
Funeral services were conducted at 2 p.m. Thursday at Kearns Chapel by Rev. Henry Mueller, pastor of First Lutheran church. Burial was in the Morrison cemetery, Rev. R. L. Whitmore in charge.
Those from Morrison in attendance at the funeral services were: Mrs. Dora Wallace, Frank Appel, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Appel, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Drake and family, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Jans and family, Mr. and Mrs. Jonas Shafstal, Mr. and Mrs. Roy Shafstal and daughter, and Jake Pleen.
