Bisbee, Chauncy W. - Chauncy W. Bisbee died at his home in Clarinda, Friday, Jan 28, 1921, of paralysis. He was attending to his usual business duties Saturday, Jan 15, at the office of Orr & Turner, was taken ill the next day, and from that time was confined to the house.
The late Mr Bisbee was born in Monkton, Vt., Aug 27, 1838. He was married Oct 29, 1862, to Miss Elenora W. Ward, at Vergeness, Vt., and with her come west to Camp Point, Ill., the first of March of the year 1862. Before coming to Illinois Mr bisbee followed the occupation of farming but at Camp Point began work as a section hand. In a short time he was made station agent at Camp Point. Later he went to Kansas City, Mo., where he was city agent for the Hannibal and St Joseph railway. Suffering a severe illness from typhoid fever he was unable to resume a position with so much responsibility upon his recovery, so he went to Chillicothe and was station agent there. When the Wabash railway was built he became agent at Pattonsburg, Mo., with charge of all material sent over the northern division of the road. When the line from Roseberry [Nodaway Co, Mo], Mo., to Clarinda was built, Mr Bisbee had charge at the southern end of the road of the sending out of material for the building of the line. At the completion of the road, Dec 25, 1879, he came to Clarinda where he was station agent for the Wabash while that line was in existence. Later he was bookkeeper for the Clarinda Creamery company. For the past twenty-seven years he has been the able assistant of William Orr in his law office, and for some of the twenty-seven years in the law office of Mr Orr and partner, W.A. Turner.
The funeral was held at 1:30 Sunday afternoon at the home on East Chestnut street and was conducted by Rev R.C. Snodgrass. A solo was sung by G.V. Scott of the Harper evangelistic party, "I'm Acquinated with the Author and I Know the Book Is True." Mrs J.W. Cozad, Mrs R.H. Moore, Claude Annan and Mr Scott sang "My Faith Looks Up to Thee," and "Nearer My God to Thee," two favorite songs of Mr Bisbee. The pallbeareers were W.J. Stoops, Lon Swisher, George Harbord, S.B. Gorman, T.G. Searl and Charles Reed. Interment was in Clarinda cemetery.
At the funeral Rev R.C. Snodgrass read the following tribute to the memory of Mr Bisbee, specially referring to his connection with the Christian church:
"Brother Bisbee was born and married in Vermont. He and his wife coming West settled at Camp Point, Ill., where his real birth took place Aug 27, 1865, when he was born again into the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ, to whom he belonged and whom he served, from that date to the time of his death, or more than fifty-five years.
It seems fitting that Brother Bisbee should be born again on his twenty-seventh birthday, because from that time on his spiritual birth so dominated and eclipsed his natural birth, that his worldly life seemed to grow fainter and fainter, while his spiritual life grew brighter and brighter unto this perfect day, when triumphant overweakness of the flesh in spirit, he walks and talks with the Masster, the prophets, apostles and all the saints who have gone before.
He was not only a Christian by profession, but he worked at it day by day, attending all the services of the Lord's house, visitng the sick, the heart-broken, the widows and orphans in their affliction and having upon his heart all the care of the church, until it could be said of him as it was said of his Master, he went about doing good.
Early in his Christian life at Camp Point he was elected deacon, which position he filled there and at Kansas City, Mo., until he was elected elder, which position he continued to fill there, at Chillicothe, Mo., and at Clarinda, Iowa, till the time of his death.
As the years go by his friends will remember him best as presiding at the Lord's table and leading the prayer meeting, both of which he loved to do, and for the performance of which he seemed especially adapted. Four weeks ago today he presided at the Lord's table, as was his wont.
As a teacher in the Bible school, he was gifted in presenting Biblical truth and translatting these truths into the lives and characters of the members of his class, until it was said, you could always depend on Brother Bisbee's class. His strength as a teacher is shown by the fact that his class loved him and responded to every call that he made upon it."
Bisbee, Chauncy W. - A GOOD MAN GONE, TO ENJOY LIFE ETERNAL.

Shenandoah World, September 6 1898
"Black - Died, Saturday, Sept. 3, 1898, at 1:20 p.m., John A. Black, aged 49 years and 5 months.
After a long and painful sickness John Black lay in his coffin Sunday, looking very natural, calm and restful - the sweet rest of death. Sometime in March last he was taken ill. Doing some carpenter work a falling beam struck his side. From this his complication of disease dated. Never a week has passed since April that Mr. Black was not expected to die before the week ended. He had heart enlargement, Bright’s disease and dropsy. His limbs were swollen beyond recognition, and for fifteen weeks he did not walk a step. A large part of the time he could not lie down but sat helpless in his chair day and night. But he was cheerful and good natured always. Few men are called upon to endure so long a stretch of severe suffering. Good medical treatment and careful nursing warded off the shafts of death determined to strike him down. But death came at last like a messenger of mercy, and he is at rest.
The funeral took place Sunday at 4 p.m., in charge of the Odd Fellows. Mr. Black was a devoted member of that order and at the time of his death was Noble Grand elect.
He longed to “go through the chairs” - an honor prized by all members of his order - and it was a matter of much regret that he could not go to the lodge and fill his chair. But the brethren took good care of him and buried him with all the honors of the noble order. They escorted the remains and the mourning family from the residence to the Christian church where Elder Price preached the funeral discourse, assisted by Rev. Waddell, and then the remains were laid in Rose Hill.
John Black was a native of Missouri, but came to Iowa 26 years ago, living for a time at Tabor. He came to Shenandoah thirteen years ago. He was not a member of any church, but was esteemed a good man and useful citizen. He leaves a wife and three children to mourn his death."
My great-grandfather on my father's side, John A. Black, was buried in Rose Hill cemetery on land once owned by my great-great-grandfather on my mother's side, Charles Lathrop LeBarron.
