Wall, Mary Emeline 1849-1918

OBITUARY: Mary Emeline (Stacy) Wall, 1849-1918, Mitchell County, Iowa [Mitchell County Press] Obituary-Mrs. George Wall Mary Emeline Stacy was born September 2, 1849 at Dover, Illinois, and died February 6, 1918 at Early, Oregon. She was the eldest daughter of Homer I. and Amelia L. Stacy. At the age of 7 years she came with her parents to Mitchell county, Iowa. Her father platted the town of Stacyville, which bears his name. Here she grew to womanhood. On December 27, 1877 she was united in marriage with George Wall, of Stacyville, who was engaged in the milling business. In the home prepared for her as a bride she spent nearly twenty-five happy years. Six daughters and one son came to gladden the home, all of whom survive the mother. In the summer of 1901 the family removed to Early, Oregon, where they have since resided. Throughout all these years Mrs. Wall enjoyed superb health. After a few months of failing strength and only two days of illness, she quietly passed away. Her death was caused by heart failure. Mrs Wall was raised in a Christian home; at the age of 24 years she united with the Congregational church; her husband and seven children were also members of this church. Mrs. Wall will be long remembered for her generosity and hospitality, which she dispensed lavishly; not only did the Home Missionary find a haven of rest in his journeyings, but also her friends and acquaintances for miles around her home were always sure of a welcome, even the poor Indian was never turned from her door without food. Although isolated in a measure from the busy world, her home was liberally supplied with the best books and periodicals both secular and religious, which she regularly shared with less favored friends. Her rare gift of correspondence kept her in touch, not only with her own family, but also with many friends of early years. In the home made desolate by her removal, her devoted husband and daughter, Amelia and Harriet remain the married daughters, Mrs. Charlotte Hartley, of Walla Walla; Mrs. Delia Barry of Enterprise; Mrs. Rugh Geiss, of Pendleton, Ore.; and Mrs. Ella Stevens, of Washington. Her only son, Home Stacy Wall and family lived very near and were a continual joy and comfort. She also had twelve grandchildren. Her sisters, Mrs. Ed Stacy, Misses Delia and Frances Stacy, of Osage, and Mrs. Harriet S. Reeves, of Willmar, Minn., and her brother, A. I. Stacy, of Osage, hold her in tender, grateful remembrance. "Her children rise up and call her blessed, her husband also and he praises her." The last service which was held in Bieglow and largely attended, was conducted by her pastor; the text "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his Saints." "Blessing she was, God made her so, And deeds of week-day holiness flowed from her noiseless as the snow. Yet she had never chanced to know The aught was easier to bless: Submitted to IaGenWeb by Marilyn O'Connor, Aug. 2005 Copyright 2005 - M. O'Connor Copyright 2006 - K.L.

OBITUARY: Anders Wamstad, 1850-1928, Mitchell County, Iowa Anders Wamstad Anders Wamstad was a native of Norway, born in Hadeland on May 1, 1850. At the age of sixteen years, he came to America and located temporarily in Clayton County, Iowa. Later he came to this community and located in Rock Township, Mitchell County. On March 27, 1877, he was united in marriage to Mrs. Ingeborg Dynna, widow of Lars L. Dynna, of Rock Township. He was engaged in farming in Rock and Cedar Townships until the spring of 1915, when he moved to Osage, where he has since made his home. Besides his wife, he leaves to mourn his loss: two children, Brede and Della Wamstad, and the following grandchildren: Constance Wamstad, Mrs. Ingvald (Alice) Sponheim, Mrs. Edwin (Helen) Maakestad, Kalmar, Knud, Louise and Ludvig Klemesrud. There are also three brothers and one sister surviving: Ole Wamstad of Parma, ID; Brede Wamstad, of Minneapolis, MN; Iver and Mary of Hadeland, Norway. His stepchildren, Ludvig Dynna and Mrs. Herman K. (Lise) Klemesrud, preceded him in death a few years ago. The departed brother was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran church of his native country. When coming to this community, he united with the Rock Creek Lutheran Church and was a member at the time of his death. This church he loved and supported as an active member. Mr. Wamstad has been enjoying good health and had been an exceptionally strong and industrious man, but during the last two years of his life, his strength had been gradually vanishing. He died on October 28, 1928, being at the time of his death 78 years, 5 months, and 14 days of age. Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. O.C. Myhre in the home at 1 p.m. and in the Rock Creek Lutheran Church at 2 p.m. on October 31, 1928. The many memorial wreaths and the large attendance showed the high esteem in which the departed brother was held in the community. Interment was made in the Rock Creek Lutheran cemetery.
