David Dolvin Is Dead
David Dolvin, one of the old and highly respected citizens of this locality died at his home west of New Hartford last Sunday night after an illness of about two weeks. The deceased came to this section in an early day and has been identified with its growth and prosperity in no small degree. He was born in Tuscarawus, Ohio, October 31, 1831, died at New Hartford, Iowa, December 11, 1904, aged 73 years, 1 month and 11 days. He was the youngest son of the family and when yet a young man moved to Williams county, Ohio, in which place he was married to Miss Amy Jordan December 31, 1857. They remained there till the autumn of 1867 when they came to Butler county, Iowa. To this union nine children were born, four of whom are still living: Mrs. Edith Carpenter and U. W. Dolvin of Lake Preston, South Dakota; Mrs. Addie Smith of Sutherland, Iowa, and J. O. Dolvin of New Hartford, Iowa. Soon after coming to Iowa Mr. Dolvin united with the Advent church and he remained a faithful and consistent member of that organization till his death. July 26, 1890, his wife died. He was married to Mrs. Agnes Squier, twelve years ago, who, with the children, are left to mourn his death. The funeral services were held from the Baptist church Tuesday afternoon conducted by Rev. Wood and the remains laid to rest in Fairfield cemetery beside the body of his first wife. Members of the Grand Army Post, of which organization the deceased was a member, acted as pall bearers for their comrade in arms. He sleeps in peace beneath the silent clods of the valley, but his memory is enshrined in loving hearts.
