SUDDEN DEATH OF AN OLD SETTLER.
Aug 24, 1899 (hand written)
An old resident of that part of Lake township generally known as the Boland settlement, UTTIG HOUSEMAN, departed this life suddenly yesterday morning at 3 o’clock. The day before he was in the city and seemed to be in his usual good health and spirits. During the night he was seized with a severe congestive chill, and a member of the household was promptly dispatched to seek medical aid, but ere a physician arrived Mr. Houseman had breathed his last.
The decedent was a native of England and came to America and Muscatine county forty years ago. He was a man of industry, probity, and sterling qualities, who had a wide circle of friends and acquaintances by who he was held in high regard. His good wife, four sons and two married daughters, Mira and Lizzie, survive, the latter being the wife of Joseph Gibbs of Lake Township.
The funeral is appointed to take place Sunday at 2 p.m. from the residence.
