Decatur County Journal
September l7, l903

CECIL CALDWELL, son of G.C. and MARTHA CALDWELL, died at his sister's,
MRS. C. BREEMER in Woodland, Iowa, Sept. 5, l903, aged 26 years, 5
months and 26 days.

Funeral services were conducted at the house Sunday at l0:30 a.m., by
Rev. Harrison Wilson, after which the body was laid to rest in the
Caldwell Cemetery on the old home farm south of Lewisburg.

Deceased was born in Wayne County near Lewisburg and lived there with
his parents until about l6 years of age when he went to Missouri, where
he remained until about two years ago. Failing health caused him to go
to Colorado where he remained a little more than a year, but as his
health continued to fail, he came to this county hoping the change would
benefit him. For a time he appeared to improve but that insidious
disease, diabetes, continued its work and although of a strong and
vigorous constitution, he could not withstand the weakening effects of
disease. About five years ago he united with the Baptist Church and
ever since lived a consistent Christian life.
