I. T. Hoxie

Isaac T. Hoxie, son of Charles and Harriett Hoxie was born near Ottawa, Illinois, April 12, 1868.

His boyhood was spent on the farm near Ottawa and after he was grown, he went to Lincoln, Nebraska, where he was engaged in the grocery business. He was married to Emma May Howard of Winterset, January 1, 1894. To them three children were born, one daughter, Mrs. Beulah Thrift, and their two sons Lloyd and Eldon Hoxie, all of Winterset. After their marriage they lived in Lincoln for a number of years and then moved to a farm near Waterloo, Iowa, where they remained for ten years. They moved to a farm near Winterset twenty-three years ago and soon after moved into town where Mr. Hoxie engaged in the dray business and later truck hauling.

He has been for many years a member of the Winterset lodge of the Woodmen of the World.

He united with the Methodist church of Winterset a number of years ago, where he was a member at the time of his death. He was as quiet and unassuming in his religious life as in all other things. But he loved to attend church and Sunday school and after he became too ill to attend the services he took great delight in listening to his former pastor, David Shenton, over the radio.

Mr. Hoxie was industrious, honest and faithful in his work and was a lover of his home and family. Sunday was his delight, because he could be at home with them.

After he became sick, months ago, he did not complain though suffering intensely, but continued to attend his work. He submitted to an operation in Iowa City last Saturday and passed away, on Sunday evening, August 9th at the age of sixty-three years.

He leaves besides his wife and children, two grandchildren, six sisters and three brothers and many friends.

Rev. A. P. Keast conducted the services at the M. E. church Wednesday afternoon, August 12, and the interment was in the Winterset cemetery.
