William Hundley Called
Passed Away Either Sunday Night or Monday Morning. Body Was Found About Noon Monday.
Word was passed around Monday noon that Wm. Hundley had been found dead in his little home back of the Morrison bus barn, death having come to him probably sometime during Sunday night as the body was stiff when found. From all appearances Mr. Hundley was preparing to retire when he was stricken down and death came without any warning and almost instantly. He lived alone in his little home and this accounts for the body not being found until some hours after death came.
The funeral service was held from the Methodist church Tuesday afternoon, Rev. J. C. Curry, assisted by Rev. Dilman Smith, officiating. Burial was made in the local cemetery. The local G.A.R. post attended in a body.
Wm. H. Hundley, son of Josiah and Julia Hundley, was born Oct. 27, 1843 in Jo Daviess county, Ill., and passed away in Grundy Center, Iowa, Oct. 12th, 1913, at the age of 70 years, lacking two weeks.
At the age of eighteen, Mr. Hundley enlisted in Co. I, 3rd Missouri Cavalry and served three years, three months and eight days, receiving an honorable discharge Dec. 21, 1864, at Little Rock, Ark.
Mr. Hundley was united in marriage in 1868 to Miss Zemiah Young and to this union were born three children, Benj. L., now deceased, Laura M. and Mabel. Laura is now Mrs. Price and lives in Conrad and Mabel is the wife of W. A. Plager of Sutherland, Iowa. Both were present for the funeral.
