While living 5 miles south of New Market he walked to Boundary Grove now known as Kraut Trestle to attend a Methodist Camp meeting. The text of the evening was, "Pay thy vow to the most High." Wm.

An incident from the old home: When leaving for the west his father took his hand and said "Wm we have tried to teach you honesty, sobriety and industry and now son you are going out from among us and I want you to remember what we have taught you and be a man."

Herriman, Margaret Isabell Brown, his wife, 1849 - 1921; ss Charles; section 9

Obituary - Mrs Chas Herriman is dead. That was the word passed from mouth to mouth last Friday morning, and while it was not entirely unexpected, yet when it was realized that she was gone it caused many a sad heart in New Market. She was a grand woman, and here in New Market where she had spent the greater part of her life, she was loved and respected by all. Her life was spent in doing good, and her works will live long in the memory of those who knew her.

Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon in the Mennonite church, conducted by the pastor, Rev Hess. Interment was in Memory cemetery.

Margaret Isabell Brown was born near Hardensburg, Washington Co., Ind., April 4, 1849, and passed to her eternal reward from her home in New Market, Ia., March 11, 1921, aged 71 years, 11 month and 7 days.

In the year 1854 she came with her parents to Iowa, locating first in Agency City, Wapello Co., and from there to Van Buren Co., in 1859. In 1877 she moved with her husband to Page county, and from there to Arapahoe, Neb., where they spent a number of years in pioneer life; moving back to Iowa in the spring of 1889 and locating at New Market at which place she has lived ever since.

She was married March 20, 1867, to C.H. Herriman and for almost 54 years they fought the battles of life side by side; not only those of temporal care, but the spiritual conflicts as well. Their devotion to each other, not only in prime of life but in old age as well, was such as commanded the admiration of their neighbors and friends.

To this union were born eleven children. Three have preceded their mother to that better land; two of these died in infancy and the other, a daughter, Mrs Maude Godfrey, formerly of this city, died Nov 5, 1905. Those surviving are B.F.

Herriman of Grand Valley, Colo; O.A. Herman of Farragut, Ia; and Mrs Cecil Groeling of Sterling, Colo., all of whom were present to witness their sainted mother's home going.

Sister Herriman was converted 37 years ago and united with the Mennonite church at Shambaugh, being one of the charter members of the church at New Market.

....(part of obituary left out here)...

In spite of the fact that she has been failing in health the past year her death came as a shock to her neighbors and friends not knowning of her being seriously ill. She suffered greatly the past few days but she bore her suffering patiently and longed for the end. Her last words were, "Let me go, I cannot stay,"Tis the Master calling me, farewll, farewell." She slipped away to be with Jesus Friday morning at 5:45 a.m. We will miss her hearty welcome at the door of her humble home there will be a vacant chair at the church and Sunday school services; her voice we will hear no more at the prayer meeting in praise and prayer; we will miss those helpful "Amens" and "Praise the Lord" in the course of our sermons; but our loss is her eternal gain.

Besides her husband and children she leaves to mourn her departure 4 brothers, F.M. Brown of New Market, J.M. Brown of Clarinda, Stephen Brown of Clarinda, and Wise Brown of near Shambaugh, and one sister, Mrs N.J. Carter of Clarinda, twenty-three grandchildren and three great grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends. New Market Herald, Mar 17, 1921

Hipsley, Maxine, inf dau of Earl & Edna; -1918-; section 2
Obituary - On Friday, March 22, 1918, a little daughter came to brighten the home of Mr and Mrs Earl Hipsley. All was joy and gladness in the home after her advent and she was christened Lenna Maxine. For a few days the little one throve and was endearing her self to all who came in contact with her. Then little Maxine began to wither and the joy and gladness gave place to anxiety and apprehension. All that human hands could do was done to keep the little one here, but to no avail, and on Monday morning at seven o'clock the spirit of little Maxine took its flight to Him who said: "Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of heaven." And now the home to which she brought sunshine and happiness is shrouded in deepest gloom, which only Time, the great healer of all sorrow, can dispel. The sorrowing parents have the sympathy of all in their irreparable loss. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon, conducted by Rev Douglass, at Memory cemetery, where interment took place.
