(Special to The Gate City)
GALLAND, Iowa, Jan. 7. - Albert J. Notney, eighty years old for forty-seven
years a farmer living a short distance from Sandusky, Iowa, passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. William Stottlar at Galland, at 7:20 o'clock last evening, following a short illness with pneumonia. The decedent was widely known in this section of Lee county where he has lived for such a long period of time, and the sympathy of the whole community has been extended to the family.

Mr. Notney was taken ill shortly over a week ago and was taken to his daughter's home at Galland where he passed away after a vain endeavor had been made to save his life. Pneumonia developed after an attack of the grippe and this proved fatal to a man who had already passed his allotted three score and ten years.

Born in Austria-Hungary.
The decedent was born in Austria-Hungary in the year 1836 and lived in that country until he was thirty-two years of age. He served in the Austria-Hungarian army for fifteen years. He came to America and direct to Sandusky, Iowa, in the year 1865 and had been a resident of Lee county ever since.

Mr. Notney owned a farm on the outskirts of Sandusky and on which he resided, raised a family of nine children and made his living by tilling* the soil. He was well known to all of the Keokuk produce men for he sold his farm products in that city. He was industrious, honest and generous and his many friends will always remember him for his sterling qualities of character that made him a favorite with all whom he came in contact in his business and social relations extending over many years. One of the earliest settlers in these parts, he was of that hardy, pioneer stock that always provides the foundation for the building up of a thriving and successful community. All of Mr. Notney's friends speak highly of him as a citizen, a friend and a fellow worker and his sudden death from pneumonia has caused sincere regret throughout the countryside.

The Survivors.
Nine children, fourteen grandchildren and two great grandchildren survive. The children are: Mrs. L. A. Berryhill, Keokuk; Mrs. Frank Lattner, Rock Island, Ill; Mrs. Ana Gill, Clinton, Iowa; Miss Victoria Notney, Los Angeles, Calif.; Mrs. J. Mitchell, Great Bend, Kansas; Mrs. Kate Leer, Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Mrs. William Stottlar, Galland; Albert Notney Jr., Hutchison, Kansas and Mrs. Timothy Boyle, Galland.

Mr. Notney's wife died twelve years ago and she is buried in the Sandusky cemetery and he will be laid by her side. The funeral is to be held from the home of Mrs. Stottlar in Galland.
