Keener, James

The sudden and unexpected death of Jas. Keener the 23rd inst. cast a gloom over the entire community. He had been in usual good health until the last few days when he underwent much suffering but was able to be around most of the time. Mr. Keener was 76 years old, having been born in Indiana county, Pennsylvania, Oct. 7, 1829. When a young man he learned the blacksmith's trade, and followed it until the breaking out of the civil war when he enlisted and served until mustered out in 1865 as 1st Sergeant. Returning home he took up his trade again and in 1867 removed his family to this city which had since been his home. For years he had been a faithful member of the U P. church. He leaves a wife and seven children to mourn his death. The funeral took place at 10:30 Saturday, conducted by Rev. Sturgeon. A good old man has gone to his long home. PAGE COUNTY DEMOCRAT, Clarinda, Iowa, Nov 30, 1905

James Keener died very suddenly at his home   on   Seventeeth and Water streets yesterday morning between the hours of eight and nine aged 76 years, one month and 16 days.  For several years he had suffered from a disease incident to advancing years which slowly undermined his vitality.  He had suffered more than common the last few days and though his death came suddenly and at a time when he was able to be up and about, it was not unexpected.  Mr. Keener is survived by Mrs. Keener and seven children, Mrs. Lizzie Strong, Nannie, John D., Abbey, James, Ora and Elmer. James Keener was born in Indiana county, Pennsylvania, Oct. 7, 1829.   He was the oldest of the nine children of Isaac  and Elizabeth Keener.   He was raised on a farm and assisted his father in cultivating the home farm until he was twenty years of age when he was apprenticed to a blacksmith. In those days every young man was taught to learn a trade and young Keener worked faithfully at his apprenticeship for three years and at the end of that time set up a forge of his own at a little smithy at West Lebanon, Pennsylvania.  There he remained,at work for eleven years of until 1863 when he enlisted in the Union   army. He   re-enlisted in 1865 in the Sixteenth Pennsylvania Cavalry in Company I, from which be was mustered out at the close or the war with the rank of First Sergeant.  Again returning to his home at West Lebanon he followed his trade there for two years more and then in 1867 emigrated with his family to Clarinda and opening a blacksmith shop here.
Since that time Mr. Keener has been a prominent figure in the life of the city and the old shop is still conducted by his sons. He was a highly respected citizen and a faith ful member of the United Presbyterian church. The funeral will be held tomorrow morning at 10:30 at the home and will be conducted by Rev R. M. Sturgeon, pastor of his church, assisted by Rev. Jackson and Rev. Abel.
A rather remarkable coincidence is to be noticed in the two deaths that have occurred in our city this week. D. H. Showalter and James Keener were great friends. For years they have been very intimate and have seen each other almost daily. The last visit they had together was Saturday night when Mr. Showalter spent the evening with his friend. Neither of the men was in good health at the time and as Mr. Showalter arose to go he said, "Well, I guess I'll go home, and do my chores, and then I can rest." They bade each other good­bye, and the next morning the one was prostrated with the sickness, which three days later resulted in his death on Wednesday morning, and he was followed twenty-eight hours later by the other. Both were good.men and their families rejoice in the knowledge that their companionsbip now need never be interrupted by night fall nor marred by pain or sickness.

Keener, James E. Keener died at his home about one and one-half miles west of Clarinda, last Saturday morning, after a long period of declining health.   In recent years he had been a farmer in the vicinity of Shambaugh, and later on the farm near Clarinda on which he died.   He formerly was a strong, robust man; always was of a genial, kindly disposition—such a man as one was bound to like.   His funeral was held Monday from the home of his brother, J. T.D. Keener, in this city, conducted by Rev. N. J. Calhoun, pastor of the United Presbyterian church of College Springs.  The hymns sung were favorites of the deceased,   "Lead, Kindly Light," "Face to Face," and "That Will Be Glory for Me."   The singers were Mrs. Delbert Wheeler, Miss Dorothy Pfander, Lee Johnson and Ralph Short. The pallbearers were John T. D. Keener and O. W. Keener, brothers; Kenneth Strong and Stanley Keener, nephews and Charles Pigg and Lee Whitcomb of Atlantic, brothers-in-law of the deceased.

His early boyhood was spent among his friends who Monday of this week assembled to pay him a last tribute. His education was acquired in the Clarinda public schools.   The late Mr. Keener spent his entire life in this vicinity the exception of two years which were spent in Sharpsburg, Iowa. This dear one, now deceased, was known, admired and loved by all who knew him or with whom he came in contact. Evidences of this affection are before us in the tributes of sympathy from the entire community.   In 1903 Mr. Keener united in marriage with Miss Marie Maude Le Grande, who today mourns his loss.   To this union were born three children, James Edward Keener Jr., who preceded his father to the better world; Dorothy Marie Keener and Donald Edward Keener, both of whom survive their deceased parent. The memory of his last months with his family and near friends is a beautiful one of noble unselfishness and Christian fortitude in suffering. Alhough at many times really unable to look after his dear ones, that was his first though.   Mr. Keener is survived by one sister, Mrs. Abbie Gilmore, and three brothers, J. T. D. Keener, O. W. Keener, and E. B. Keener, who is now confined to his home by the illness of both himself and family.   Mr. Keener leaves many more distant relatives and friends who have grown to love his character and kindly disposition.   The out of town friends who came to pay their last respects to the memory of Mr. Keener were Mrs. L.

Kelley, Mary Ann Tetrick

GRANDMA KELLEY GONE
Grandma Kelley took sick last Wednesday morning at the home of her son  Charles Kelley,  with pneumonia, and passed away Sunday night at 10 o'clock.  She was 84 years old.  Grandma was a woman that was a miracle to  this world as she was so strong for her age, always at work at something and never tired doing for others. She was always trusting in her Savior and if any one murmured or complained she always had a smile and would say "we have to take the bitter with the sweet for there is a higher Power that rules us".  We cannot give a full account of her life at this time, but can say she was beloved by old and young, and it was such a comfort to be in her presence.   Oh how we shall miss her, words cannot  express, for she was a mother to every one. Not only her children will mourn for her but every one that knew her.  No arrangements for her funeral have been made at  this writing,  as they have not received word from her son Ed who lives at Billings, Mont., and her daughter Mrs. Lillie Brown at Rushville, Nebr. She was a very dear friend to the writer, and I surely will mourn for her for she was such a comfort to me. Clarinda Herald, Clarinda, Iowa, May 13, 1920

She was a pioneer in Page county and knew the country when it was but a wilderness.   They settled on the farm that later became her own home and from which she would never part on account of  the many associations clinging to it.   It was there she lived with her parents, it was there she was married, it was there she spent many years of joyous married life, it was there her loved ones were taken from her and there she wanted to spend her last years.   She was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church from early youth and exemplified her faith by her daily life.
She was united in marriage July 29, 1858 to James M. Kelly, who was a former schoolmate and who preceded his life's companion to the better world on Aug. 1, 1904.

Brown of Rushville. Nebr.; Charles W. Kelly of Clarinda; Edward A. Kelly of Billings, Mont., and Wilbur T. Kelly of Clarinda.   She had thirteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

She gradually grew weaker until Sunday evening when she peacefully passed away.
Only four of her children were able to be with her during the closing hours of her life.
She was an everyday Christian. Her charities were as extensive as her knowledge of human suffering and her means of relief. She was of a most wonderfully loving disposition, always cheerful and bright, she made all with whom she came in contact happy. Of her it can be said she had no enemies, she was a good Christian, a good mother, and has entered into that rest prepared for the children of God and all those who love His appearing.

King, GEO. W. KING DROWNED.
Norwich Man Drowns  Sunday While Swimming in Tarkio Creek.
Geo. W. King, aged 46 years, was drowned about 10:30 Sunday forenoon while swimming in west Tarkio Creek, at the mouth of a little cold water stream, which joins the main stream on the Thomas Gwynn farm. The drowned man owned 160 acres joining Norwich on the south, and was a son of J. K. King, the proprietor of the Nodaway Valley Stock Farm of nearly 250 acres, one of the earliest and most respected citizens of Page county. The deceased is survived by a wife, who was formerly Miss Delia Atkinson, sister of Sam and Harry Atkinson, of this city, and four children; Harry, who lives at home and helps to farm the home place, Ross and Floyd who are in railroad work in Salt Lake City, and Phillip, a boy twelve years old, at home.
The drowning took place in the presence of four men and a boy with whom Mr. King had gone swimming. Those in the party were Jake Bloom and his brother, John Pontius and his son and also Pontius's brother. Just where the little cold water stream flows into Tarkio a deep hole has been gouged out probably seven feet deep and of considerable width and has been a favorite swimming hole for the neighborhood for a long time. The water was fairly warm on Sunday except at the place where the cold water of the smaller stream mingled with the water of the larger stream. Mr. King had been in the water for some time, and the first knowledge his friends had of his distress was when he had swam close to where the cold water commences, and suddenly cried out that he was drowning.   He was the largest man in the party, and as none were expert swimmers, no aid could be given him, so that he perished in a few moments.   When the body was recovered the muscles of his arms and legs were found to be knotted and drawn up and as no water was found  in his lungs, it is thought by the physicians that the cold water must have brought on severe cramps, which affected the heart and caused almost instantaneous death.
George W. King was born in Pennsylvania, November 23rd, 1861, just lacking a few months of being 46 years of age. He was the fourth child and second son of Mr. and Mrs. J. K. King, who eight years later moved from Pennsylvania to Tarkio township, Page county, and settled on the beautiful farm which has ever since been their home. This is the fourth death in the King family, two sisters and one
brother having preceded him. The surviving members of the family besides the parents are P. H. King and Austin King of Norwich, Jordan King, still lives at the old home, Mrs. Lee N. Shaw of Shenandoah, and Mrs. H. Hubert of Norwich. All the family except Mrs. Shaw have lived within five miles of the original home of the parents.
The arrangements for the funeral have not been definitely announced as yet. The two sons, Ross and Floyd, are expected to arrive today from Salt Lake City, and the funeral will probably be held tomorrow at the home. Clarinda Herald, Clarinda, Iowa, Jul 2, 1907

Geo. King, a farmer out near Norwich, was drowned in the Tarkio creek about ten o'clock Sunday morning. It is said he went out with three or four neighborg for a swim and bath in a deep hole in the creek. The water is said to be about twelve feet deep in a bend of the creek and perhaps not over ten feet square in dimensions, all around it being very shallow. It seems at the time he was in the water alone and the other parties on the bank heard him call for help as his head came to the surface, but he instantly sank again and remained on the bottom. It is thought the cold condition of the water interfered with his heart action and he became helpless. Neighbors were notified but it was abont an hour and a half before the body was recovered. Mr. King was 45 years, 7 months and 7 days old, and was one of the old settlers of that section where his father, J. K. King resides. He owned a good farm a half mile from Norwich and appeared to be doing well. His wife is a sister to Sam and Harry Atkinton and Mrs. Joe Johnson of this city, who with the four sons are left to mourn the death of husband and father. The funeral took place yesterday at 10 o'clock, conducted by the M. E. minister of Norwich and his remains interred in the cemetery of that place.

Little Frances was our darling, Pride of all our hearts at home. But an angel came and whispered, "Little Frances, do come home." Oh, our hearts are sad and lonely, When we see the vacant chair, And the little shoes and stockings That our darling used to wear.

Knox, Earl Killed By Lightning
The Essex Independent contained full details two weeks ago of the death of Earl Knox, who was struck and killed by lightning at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. W Knox, living west of Essex. Tuesday afternoon the young man was trimming trees near the barn, when the storm came up, accompanied by lightning. He held a corn or hedge trimming knife in his hand, used in the tree trimming. The point of the knife perhaps was what attracted the lightning, as it came down the tree from above, the bolt going through the body of the young man and killing him instantly. His little sister sitting, on the porch called to him, but got no answer. The young man was not quite thirty years old, having graduated from Essex high school in 1908. He saw overseas service with the 88th Division, returning in June, and was married June 25th to his sweetheart, Miss Lillie Newman, their home being on the young man's father's farm where he was working. He seemed perfectly happy to be home from France, remarking once to a friend "I am the happiest boy in the world today." Attired, in the uniform of his country, the form of the young man was laid to rest in Essex cemetery, services being conducted by the Methodist pastor, Rev. W. E. Harvey, from the Presbyterian church because it is the largest church building in town. Clarinda Herald, Clarinda, Iowa, Aug 28, 1919

Kryselmire, DYPTHERIA CLAIMS TWO.
Two year-old Child Died at Sioux City. Baby Died After Reaching Clarinda.
.   The home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Kryselmire has been made sad by the loss of their two children.   It was on last week Thursday noon that Mr. and Mrs. Kryselmire started from Sioux City, where they have been living, for Clarinda, with the body of their darling two-year-old daughter, Dorothy.   The doctor there had diagnosed the case as pneumonia, so the body was not hermetically sealed, but shipped in the ordinary way.
Mrs  Kryselmire's  father, J. V. Pfander, met the party at Council Bluffs, to escort them home. On the train the four months old baby boy became ill, so on arrival in Clarinda late Thursday evening, Dr. Sellards was called to examine the baby, whom he promptly diagnosed as having dyptheria.   The mother also was feeling ill.   This was at 11 o'clock at night, and antitoxin was administered to both mother and babe, and again next morning.   At 11 Friday morning the form of the little girl was sorrowfully laid away in Clarinda cemetery. At 1:30 Friday afternoon the baby also died, and was buried at 5 that afternoon.   The mother had quite a severe attack of the disease, but on Saturday  afternoon began to grow better, and this Tuesday and Wednesday was on the road to complete recovery, thanks to home treatment and the best medical skill that could be obtained.   Mrs. Kryselmire has been staying at the J. V. Pfander home, with her husband  and mother, the house being quarantined.   J. V. Pfander meanwhile has been staying at the home of his daughter,  Mrs. J. V. Crosthwaite.    Mrs. Delbert Wheeler and 5 months old baby, from Ireton, la., Mrs. Kryselmire's sister, were passengers on the train coming down, and fear was expressed for that baby also; but fortunately no evil effects have developed.
The question is asked, how did it come that the Sioux City physician and authorities made the mistake of not discovering the child had dyptheria, and how did the undertaker and health officer there, let the case slip through, making out a certificate instead for pneumonia ?   It is said that this feature of the matter is being investigated, as it is certainly dangerous for bodies of persons who have died from contagious diseases to be shipped without due precautions, for which the law provides, and surely there was carelessness  somewhere  that the health of the traveling public was not better protected.   The state authorities we understand now have the case up for investigation.
Mr. and Mrs. Kryselmire meanwhile have the sincere sympathy of many Clarinda friends in their irreparable loss. Clarinda Herald, Clarinda, Iowa, Sep 11, 1916
