Received Shell Shock In World War I

He was in failing health during the past year. He was taken to the veterans' hospital in Des Moines for treatment for some time and from there was transferred to the Solders' Home in Marshalltown. Three weeks ago at his request he was taken to the hospital at Clarion, to be nearer the home at Goldfield where he resided several years. He never married.
