J.B. Carpenter, son of Joseph and Mary [Graff] Carpenter, was born Oct. 25, 1867 in LaSalle county, Illinois. At the age of five years, he moved with his parents to Wright county, Iowa.

March 10, 1891 he was united in marriage with Miss Susan Conroy, of Woolstock, Following their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter moved to a farm about six miles northeast of Woolstock where they resided until the death of Mrs. Carpenter, Nov. 20, 1923.

After the death of Mrs. Carpenter, Mr. Carpenter, together with his daughters, moved into Webster City. For the passing few years the deceased had not been in robust health, but not until a few days prior to his death did his condition seem critical. He passed away from this earth life Thursday morning March 30, at the age of 71 years, 5 months and 5 days.

Mr. Carpenter was a man with many friends. He was honest, upright and dependable. He was frugal, industrious and painstaking in all of his efforts. He loved his friends and in turn was loved by his friends. He was a believer in the justice and righteousness of God and also a believer in the Saviourhood of Jesus. He confessed his faith in Christ as his Saviour and was baptized, and identified himself with the Church of Christ worshipping in Webster City. For the past few years he had been deprived of the privileges of active service because of failing health.

In his passing, he leaves to mourn his departure the following children: Mrs. R.E. Woodruff, Des Moines; Howard, of Woolstock; Mrs. E.A. Hyatt and Miss Mabel, Webster City; and Ross, Des Moines. One daughter, Etta, died in infancy. There are nine grandchildren. There are also two brothers and four sisters who remain to mourn his departure. E.P., Des Moines; and P.M., Blairsburg; Mrs. Nora Weedman and Mrs. Susan Little, of this city; Mrs. Josephine Brown, Renwick, and Mrs. Mary Steuer, Elmore, Minn. Two brothers, Constance and Mitchel, preceded him in death.

Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon April 2, 1939, at the Foster funeral home in Webster City, being conducted by the minister, Manson E. Miller, of Minneapolis, and the body was laid to rest beside the body of the loving and faithful wife in the Cass Center cemetery.
