Obituary ~ Dewey Sampson Carmean
April 12, 1898 ~ March 30, 1899

Decatur County Journal
Leon, Decatur County, Iowa
March 30, 1899

DEWEY SAMPSON, the infant son of MR. and MRS. SAM CARMEAN, died at 2 o'clock Tuesday morning of lung trouble. In a few days, he would have been one year old, being born April 12, 1898 and in that space of time had entwined himself about the hearts of the grief stricken family and relatives. The little fellow had suffered much the past few months from a complication of lung troubles, but was thought to have nearly recovered when he grew suddenly worse and succumbed to death.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Gibson at the family residence in east Leon yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock and interment took place in the Leon Cemetery.
