James M. Doughman
Following is the obituary of James M. Doughman who died at his home in this place Friday, January 26, and was buried from the M.E. church the following Sunday, the funeral services being conducted by Rev. Black.
He had been troubled with asthma for several years, but was always cheerful in his affliction and when the end came was prepared.
Mr. Doughman was born in Warren county, Ohio, October 22, 1829. He became a member of the United Brethren church after which he was united in marriage to Miss Harriett Ann Perry, June 15, 1850. To this union three children were born, two sons, who died infancy, and one daughter, Mrs. Angelene Magner of Bluehill, Neb.
With his family he came to Grundy county about twenty years ago and joined the M.E. church in this city under Rev. Dr. Fellows. For seventeen years he had been the faithful employee of J. T. Wilson as stock feeder.
He leaves to mourn his death an aged wife, and a daughter who was unable to attend her father's funeral.
Mrs. Doughman left Tuesday for Nebraska to make her home with her daughter. She was accompanied as far as Omaha by Mrs. Ralph Metzgar.
Mrs. Doughman enjoys the distinction of being the grand niece of Commodore Perry, the hero of Lake Erie.
