Ernest Limbocker was laid to rest in the Clarinda cemetery Wednesday afternoon after an impressive funeral service at the home of his sister, Mrs. W. A. Henderson. The funeral was in charge of the Masonic order of which Mr. Limbocker was a prominent member. The following dispatch from New Virginia shows the high esteem in which Ernest was held in the community where he made his home:
"All of the business places and schools of New Virginia were closed Monday afternoon to give due honor to the services attending the funeral of the late Dr. E. R. Limbocker, who passed away late Sunday night at the Methodist hospital in Des Moines. The Methodist church at New Virginia was crowded and the Masonic Order of the town attended the services in a body. The Rev. Mr. Carpenter officiated. This morning the remains were taken to Clarinda, where services will be held at the home of Mrs. W. A. Henderson, a sister of the deceased, and interment will be made.
Ernest Ray Limbocker was born near Columbus Junction, Nov. 30, 1881. He was educated in the public schools of Columbts [sic] City, graduating from the high school there. In 1899 he graduated from the Highland Park school of pharmacy, and entered the medical school of Drake university in 1900.
While at Drake, Dr. Limbocker was the organizer of the Drake Medical Alumni association, of which he was elected secretary and treasurer. He was assistant in the laboratory of the medical school.
While in his junior year at Drake, Dr. Limbocker entered the office of Dr. Granville N. Ryan as assistant, remaining with him until after graduation in 1904. Later in that year Dr. Limbocker went to New Virginia, establishing there a practice which speaks highly for his success as a physician. He was called by many of the practitioners of the surrounding towns and cities as a consultant, his brother physicians recognizing his ability.
A severe cold caught by Dr. Limbocker while attending a distant call developed into plural pneumonia. After a short illness, which became recognized as very serious, the young physician was brought to the Methodist hospital here, in hopes of saving his life. All efforts availed nothing, and the doctor was called to rest just as he was entering a promising career.
Dr. Limbocker was an active worker in the American Medical Association, the Iowa Medical Association, and the Warren County Medical Association. He was a member of the Masonic order being senior warden of the lodge at New Virginia. Surviving him are his wife and child, his parents, and a large family of brothers and sisters.

Ernest Limbocker Dies at Des Moines.
The people of Clarinda were greatly shocked Saturday evening when a message was received in this city that Ernest Limbocker was dying from pneumonia at the Methodist Hospital in Des Moines, where he had been taken that night. His sister, Mrs. W. A. Henderson, had already gone to his bedside. Upon receipt of this message Carl Salber, his brother-in-law, drove to Villisca and took the train there and was able to reach Des Moines Sunday and found Ernest still alive. He was gradually sinking, however, and passed away at 10 o'clock Sunday night, retaining consciousness until the last. This is one of the saddest deaths which we have had to record in many months, Mr. Limbocker being a young man in the prime of life and with such brignt prospects before him. He had succeeded in gaining a fine medical practice at New Virginia, Iowa, where the little family had made their home since his marriage to Gertrude Salber of this city, two years ago last Thanksgiving Day. Mrs. Limbocker and their little son were here for a visit two weeks ago, and were called home then by the illness of Dr. Limbocker.
The funeral services will take place at the W. A. Henderson home in this city tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock, conducted by Rev. J. W. Abel and Rev. J. N. McLean, and the body will be laid to rest here.
Dr. Limbocker spent several years of his life here as assistant in the drug store of W. A. Henderson and had a large number of warm friends who are greatly shocked by his untimely death. The sympathy of all goes out to the young wife and the baby boy in their great bereavement.
Ernest Limbocker is the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Limbocker, of Wapello, Iowa, who with his four sisters and two brothers survive him. His father and mother, brother Harry and sister, Mrs. Will Otto, of Wapello, will all be present tomorrow at the funeral. Two sister live in Texas and two brothers in the state of Washington. Ernest came to Clarinda in 1898 when he was seventeen years old and was a clerk in Mr. Henderson's store until he commenced his pharmaceutical and medical course. He took one year in pharmacy, and passed the examination of the state board. In the spring of 1905 he graduated from the medical department of Drake University at Des Moines and located immediately afterward at New Virginia. He was married to Gertrude Salber, the daughter of Mr. J. A. Salber, of this city, Nov. 30, 1905. He was a young man of sterling worth,
capable in his profession, upright in his daily life among men, and a kind and devoted husband and father. CLARINDA HERALD, Clarinda, Iowa, May 5, 1908

Linderman, Charles - Death has claimed another of Clariuda's old residents, this time it being Hon. Charles Linderman, who passed away early Mouday morning, April 15, 1907, after a week's illness from facial erysipelas. He had been failing in health rapidly for several months past but no one expected his demise so soon. Mr. Linderman was born near Bloomingburg, Orange county, New York, Feb. 4, 1829, making his age 78 years, 2 months and 11 days. Mr. Linderman graduated from Hamilton College, at Clinton, N. Y., in 1854, and after a year teaching school he left for Scott county, Iowa, and in the spring of 1856 went to Nebraska Territory and assisted in establishing the 6th Principal Meridian, in the employment of the government. In the fall of that year he located at Sidney, and in April 1859 came to Clarinda, which had since been his home. In August 1863 he resigned the position of Clerk of the courts and enlisted as a private in Co A, 8th Iowa Cavalry. He was elected 2nd Lieutenant of the company and was mustered into the service at Davenport and remained with his company until being mastered out of the service at Clinton, Iowa, in September 1865. He immediately returned to Clariuda, and the following fall was elected a member of the 11th General Assembly. In the fall of 1866 he was elected c!erk of the state supreme court and served for eight years. In 1875 be became intersested in the First National bank of Clariuda, now the Page County State Bank, of which he was president at the time of his death. Again in 1892 he was elected to the state legislaiure. Mr. Linderman was always closely identified with the interests of Clarinda and Page county, a kind and affable gentleman,and greatly admired by his friends, and honorable and honest in his dealings with his fellow man. Being a prominent Mason, a member of the Loyal Legion, connected with other societies, an active politician, and business and social relations he had an extensive acquaintance throughout the state. He leaves a wife and only child, Mrs. V L. Blair, of Creston, to mourn his death.

Maclean of the Presbyterian church. PAGE COUNTY DEMOCRAT, Clarinda, Iowa, Apr 18, 1907
The funeral of Chas. Linderman was conducted at the home yesterday afternoon at two o'clock, attended by a large concourse of friends. The funeral sermon was delivered by the Rev. J. N. Maclean, pastor of the Presbyterian church, whose text was taken from the seventh verse of the tenth chapter of Proverbs: "The memory of the just is blessed." The discourse was very simple and practical and full of tender sympathy. Music was furnished by Mrs. H. E. Parslow, Miss Bertha Loranz, and Messrs. J. D. Keener and H. R. Spry. The rites at the cemetery were conducted by the Masons, with Dr. T. E. Powers as master of ceremonies. In spite of the stormy day there was a large attendance, which showed the esteem in which Mr. Linderman was held by his neighbors and friends. CLARINDA HERALD, Clarinda, Iowa, Apr 19, 1907
Yesterday morning the community was quite startled with the announcement that Chas. Linderman had died about five o'clock in the morning. While it was known that he had been very sick for several days, yet it was not realized that the end was so near. Even those who had been attending him, thought it likely that he would linger for some little time, if he did not fully recover, so that even with the varnings that had already been given he announcement of his death was really a great surprise. Being one of the oldest residents of the town and having been so long identified with public and private matters, in which all were more or less interested, makes his death more of a public matter of nterest than is usually the case when a citizen dies. Mr. and Mrs. Linderman had been spending the winter at the Linderman hotel and it is there that he passed away. During the last week his only daughter, Lucile, and her husband, Frank Blair, have been in constant attendance.
Mr. Linderman was born near Bloomingburg, Orange county, New York, February 4th, 1829. He received a common school education in an academy of that state, and in 1851 entered Hamilton college, Clinton, N. Y., --- which institution he was graduat----1854.

On his discharge he immediately returned to Clarinda and at the ensuing election was chosen as a member of the Eleventh General Assembly. In the fall of 1866 he was elected clerk of the supreme court of Iowa and continued in that office eight years.
In January, 1875, he purchased an interest in the First National Bank, of Clarinda, which, with changes in business, is now known as the Page County State Bank, of which he was president at the time of his death.
Mr. Linderman was, at a subsequent time, in 1892, again elected by the people of his county as a member of the legislature.
From the time of Mr. Linderman's arrival in Clarinda to the day of his death, he was actively identified in the upbuilding and development of his home town and county; a kindly, generous and gentlemanly man, appreciated and trusted by all who knew him; he was ever willing and ready to assist in every laudable undertaking and was respected and esteemed by his fellow citizens. His acquaintances became his friends and he retained their confidence to the end.
Mr. Linderman was a prominent Mason, a member of the Loyal Legion, and connected with a number of other societies, and through his political, business and social connections he had an extensive acquaintance throughout the state. His wife, Mrs. S. E. Linderman, and his only child, Mrs. F. L. Blair, of Creston, Ia., survive him.
Mr. Linderman's funeral will be held Thursday, April 18th, at 2:00 o'clock p. m. from the home.
Rev. W. G. Hohanshelt has had a number of art catalogues sent to Clarinda to be sold, the proceeds of which will go to the purchase of a typewriter for one of the deaconess homes in Des Moines. These art pictures are very pretty and are really worth one dollar each, but they can be purchased at the Methodist parsonage for 35 cents each. Anyone wishing one will do well to get it at once, as they are selling rapidly. CLARINDA HERALD, Clarinda, Iowa, Apr 16, 1907
Hon. Charles Linderman, of Clarinda, died after many years of ill health. Mr. Linderman by his unexampled courage kept up the battle of life long after a majority of men would have surrendered. During the past ten years he had been so feeble as to attract attention, but during that time never neglected a public or private duty. Only a few weeks ago he attended the meeting of the Pioneer Law Makers' association. His friends noticed his weakness and felt sure that he could not survive long. He served his country in war and peace and leaves an honored name. All who knew him respected. Those who knew him intimately loved him. His friendship when bestowed, was as sincere as that of a child. For more than forty years he had been an honored citizen of Page county. In the community he will be sadly missed. In the state he will be mourned. When republican conventions gather, Charlie Linderman will not be there. He has joined the myriad hosts across the divide.—Des Moines Capital.

She was the oldest of seven children—five girls and two boys—all of whom have now been taken by death excepting one, Mrs. Harry Young of Yorktown, Iowa.
After finishing the eighth grade in the country schools she attended school in Clarinda, preparing herself for teaching school, which occupation she followed in Page county for eight years.
She was married to Ernest S. Lingo, Feb. 1, 1905, and has lived in the vicinity of Yorktown and Norwich ever since. To this union no children were ever born but about two and one-half years ago gratifying her earnest desire they took a two year old orphan boy into their home whom they subsequently adopted.
Two years agd she had an attack of influenza which left her with a weak heart. Last spring she had a spell of bronchial pneumonia from which she never fully recovered. In speaking recently of her illness she said: "Yes, I know I was awful sick, and if I had been called to go, it was all right."
At the age of 15 years she united with the Methodist Episcopal church and was a constant attendant and a faithful believer throughout her life. She has served in various capacities in the Norwich Sunday school, having for some time been teacher of the Bible class and had made the exemplary record of having been neither absent nor tardy for three years.
She had a wide circle of friends, many of whom called at various times during her illness and willingly helped to make her lot more pleasant. She leaves a husband and son, her parents, a sister, numerous other relatives and a host of friends to mourn her sudden and untimely death.
The funeral was held Wednesday, Oct. 26, 1921, at the Norwich Methodist Episcopal church, conducted by Rev. A. S. Woodard of Shenandoah. The singing was by Mrs Helen Gillmor of Red Oak, who was accompanied on the piano by Miss Carrie Loranz of Clarinda.

Mrs. Ernest S. Lingo - Mrs. Eva Lillian Lingo, wife of Ernest S. Lingo, passed away Oct, 23rd, 1921, from heart trouble, at her home in Norwich. Her death was quite unexpected, as she had been in Clarinda with her husband Saturday, and then they drove to Shenandoah, returning to Norwich for the night in apparently perfect health, although predisposed to heart trouble. Early Sunday morning she was found to be breathing her last.
Impressive funeral services were held in the Methodist Church at Norwich Wednesday afternoon at 2:30, conducted by Rev. Abram S. Woodard, the Methodist pastor at Shenandoah, Mrs. Helen Gilmore sang three appropriate hyms, with Carrie Loranz at the piano. The pallbearers were Walter Lingo of South Dakota, Otis Lingo of, Shenandoah, Chester Gamble of Coin, Harry Young of Yorktown, Arthur Kelly of Red Oak and Harry Borland of Clarinda. Interment was in Clarinda cemetery.
Eva Lillian Griffey was born Jan. 23rd, 1879, being the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Griffey living west of Clarinda. One sister is also living, Mrs. Harry Young living north of Yorktown. She was always a bright and loving girl, attentive to duty, shown by having taught a Sunday School class at Norwich the past three years, and never missed a Sunday during that time while at home. After completing the eighth grade in the rural schools, she attended Clarinda high-school for a time. In February 1905 she was united in marriage to Ernest S. Lingo, who is left to mourn the loss of a devoted wife and helpmate. Last summer they took a vacation trip of nearly a month in the west, traveling overland in their car. The husband, parents and sister have the sympathy of many friends. CLARINDA HERALD, Clarinda, Iowa, Oct 27, 1921
A striking example of how suddenly death may come to an individual is illustrated by the demise of Mrs. Ernest S. Lingo, at Norwich, last Sunday morning, Oct. 23,1921, when she passed away at 5 o'clock..
She had been in Clarinda the previous afternoon, and in Shenandoah only the night before her death. Heart trouble caused the end of her earthly life.
Mrs. Lingo was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Griffey of Nodaway township, who with the husband, an adopted son, George, and a sister, Mrs. Harry Young of near Yorktown, survive. Mrs. Lingo's maiden name was Eva Lillian Griffey.
The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon at 1 o'clock, at the church in Norwich, conducted by Rev. A. S. Woodard, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church of Shenandoah. Three solos were sung by Mrs. George A. Gillmor of Red Oak. They were "Face to Face," "Rock of Ages," and "Sunshine and Rain." The accompaniments were played by Miss Carrie Loranz of Clarinda. The pallbearers were relatives of Mr. and Mrs. Lingo, as follows Walter Lingo of Dakota, Otis Lingo of Shenandoah, Charles Gamble of Coin, H. W. Borland of Clarinda, Harry Young of near Yorktown, and Arthur Kelley of Red Oak. Burial was in the Clarinda city cemetery.
Mrs. Lingo was a woman of ability, refinement, and that excellence of character which gave to her friends and the respect of all who knew her.
For several years Mrs. Lingo was the Norwich correspondent for The Clarinda Journal, and was such up to the time of her death. She regarded her capacity as correspondent as a place of real responsibility, and was very faithful in her work. Her correspondence was highly appreciated by the publishers of The Journal, and her loyalty to the paper will never be forgotten by them. As late as last Thursday she had her usual Norwich correspondence for the week in The Journal. This week there is no Norwich correspondence in it. The hand and brain that so long and ably wrote from there are stilled in the long sleep.
The Journal joins with all others in sympathy for the immediate family in their loss of the good wife and mother. CLARINDA JOURNAL, Clarinda, Iowa, Oct 27, 1921

July 12, 1916. She was 68 years of
age in March, 1916. CLARINDA JOURNAL, Clarinda, Iowa, Jul 13, 1916
Essex Independent, July 14: After an illness dating back to last Christmas the last five weeks of which she was confined to her bed, Mrs. C. A. Linquist passed away at her home northeast of Essex, Wednesday night at 10 o'clock, at the age of 68 years 3 months and 22 days. It might be said that she has been in failing health for the past two years. A Christmas time she was taken ill and never recovered. Five weeks ago she was taken seriously ill and it was thought that she could last only a few hours, but she rallied to some extent. The first of this week she suffered a relaspe and death claimed her Wednesday night. The cause of her death was a complication of disease. Celestia Elizabeth Beachlor was born in Greenfield, Pa., March 21, 1848. At the age of 4 years she came with her parents to Viola, Mercer county, Ill. Here she grew to womanhood and Sept. 3, 1871 was married to Charles A. Linquist. To this union nine children were born and all were at her bedside when she passed away. They are Lilly, Mrs. George Lindburg, Minnie, at home; Carrie, Mrs. Erick Wall; Ellie, Mrs. Otto Youngberg; Fred, Frank, Albert, Eddie and Harry. Beside husband and children the departed leaves to mourn two sisters. Mrs. Joe Hill of Gravity and Mrs. George Childs of Omaha; one brother, Will Beachlor of Viola, Ill., twenty-three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Mrs. Linquist was a member of the Lutheran church at Nyman and it was from this church that the last tribute to her beautiful life will be paid. The funeral will be held tomorrow at the family residence at 3 o'clock and at the Nyman church at 4 o'clock conducted by her pastor, Rev. E. P. Karleen. After a long, busy and useful life she died as she had lived—honored, trusted and loved. She reared her own monument while she lived in the hearts of all who knew her. Her life was completed if work all done and well done constitutes completion. Her Christian life was beautiful from its beginning to its close and through all the vicissitudes and sorrows that she met in the way, her faith in God never wavered. But she has left us and today the autumn leaves fall upon another grave that bides from our sight all that is mortal of a true and noble woman. CLARINDA JOURNAL, Clarinda, Iowa, Jul 20, 1916

leave the train at Griswold and to meet Mr. and Mrs. Lisle who were
there to bring her to Clarinda in an automobile. The Lisles met their
relative but she was no sooner put into their car for the trip home, than
she expired, probably from the over
exertion, her trouble affecting the
Mrs. Lisle accompanied her sisters
body back to Exira and Mr. Lisle returned to this city for no arrangements had been made for the care of
their home for any length of time. PAGE COUNTY DEMOCRAT, Clarinda, Iowa, Dec 28, 1916

The most treasured possession of a family or nation is the memory of its great men and women. The passage of years cannot change the pride with which Clarinda shall remember the splendid life and work of C. A. Lisle. Ambition will leap; and pulses will quicken whenever: his life story is retold.
His story truly is an American epic, reflecting the true significance of Democracy as developed in the New World. When Lafayette's expedition sailed in support of the American Colonies there came to this country a young captain, Charles Noel Romand, Sieur de Lisle. This spirited young Frenchman was a nephew of the great Rouget de Lisle, author of the Marseillaise Hymn, and was at once made a member of General Washington's staff as Major of Artillery.
The brilliant service of this patriot was terminated by his death in 1778, but in the meantime he had married an Irish-American girl, Letitia Ingraham, and left an infant son, James de Lisle. Between Philadelphia and Baltimore this boy grew to manhood and loved a Quaker girl, Peninah Doudna; but before he could wed her he was obliged—in deference to the Quaker standards—to drop from his name the French "de" which appeared to the Quakers a prideful and unnecessary ornamentation. Thus the Lisle family was honorably established in America, and this same James Lisle was the grandfather of our own C. A. Lisle.
Charles Albert Lisle was born October 13, 1846, in Behnont County, Ohio, the son of Joseph and Mary (Evans) Lisle. At the age of 13 he came with the family to a pioneer farm near Panora, Guthrie County, Iowa; and since that day has been closely identified with the development of this state.
At 15 years of age he enlisted for service with one of the earliest regiments mobilized for the Union cause at Iowa City: but was taken ill in camp there and for weeks battled with typhoid fever: His ultimate recovery from this malady was so slow that he could not again qualify for service though he tried again and again to re-enlist.
At 18 years of age this spirited youth bargained with his father for his release from filial bonds—giving his father livestock and other property equivalent to the value of the three additional years of labor that he was bound by the standards of that day to render toward the support of the family before attaining complete independence. His father, Joseph Lisle, though adhering strictly to the principles accepted as vital to true filial loyalty, had long cherished a belief that this boy would make his mark in the world; consequently he accepted with pride the unique proposal of his son and bade him Godspeed in effort to make his own way and improve his opportunities to the fullest degree.
To this intent Charles Albert Lisle had equipped himself to teach and began his work as a teacher in a rural school near old Quincy in Adams County. He continued at this work till he had financed his own supplementary education at Iowa Wesleyan University, Mt. Pleasant where he graduated in 1872.
It was at this Methodist college that he met Frances Lavina Spry; and after her graduation, aid just prior to his own, these two were married January 3, 1872. Their life together was the ideal Christian home life that is typical of the very best in American achievement. They governed themselves and moulded the ideals of their children in accordance with the Divine Will and the highest instincts of their own souls. Seven children were born to them.
The first tragedy in the history of this beautiful home was the loss of Charles Vernon who gave his life Sept. 20, 1890 to save the younger boy, Edwin, from drowning. Mrs.
Lisle died July 10, 1900. And Lorance Spry Lisle died March 15, 1913. The remaining children are Mrs. S. M. Greene of Inglewood, Calif.; Mrs. Wm. A. Turner and Edwin Lisle of Clarinda; Mrs. A. A. Jeffrey of Columbia, Mo., and Harvey Hugh Lisle of Hastings. There are fourteen grandchildren.
Mr. Lisle is survived also by the devoted companion of his later years, formerly Mrs. Emma Harris Russell of Missouri Valley whom he married Feb. 19, 1908.
There survive also three brothers, Rev. James Lisle of Salem, Ore., Thomas Lisle of Mapes, N.. D., and Hugh Lisle of Linden, Iowa.
After his graduation at Mt. Pleasant in 1872 Mr. Lisle became principal of the Burlington high school and for several years exerted such helpful influence upon the many young lives entrusted to his supervision that he still is remembered gratefully by scores of men and women prominent in Iowa today who have continued all these years to call him "Professor" Lisle, and who willingly acknowledge their debt to him for the wise and kindly council and correction with which he builded the foundations for their future usefulness.
He rendered a similar service at Red Oak as superintendent of the schools of that city, continuing in school work ten years after his graduation.
It was as editor and publisher of the Plain Dealer at Fort Madison in 1882 that Mr. Lisle entered upon his long career as a journalist. He moved to Clarinda in 1885 and was editor and publisher of the Clarinda Herald from that date till 1912. In the thirty years that he was active in the newspaper field he exerted a powerful influence in Iowa politics. He was a fearless and formidable crusader against wrong-doing and injustice. He was an able advocate of progress and improvement. His editorials were quoted very frequently in the metropolitan papers, and by his ever widening personal acquaintance throughout the state, he became a helpful factor both in the secular and religious life of Iowa. He was an active Methodist for more than fifty years, and a Sunday school superintendent thirty-one years. Even after his resignation as superintendent, he continued as teacher of a Bible class. He was a delegate to General Conference at Los Angeles in 1904, and was regularly a delegate to the annual meetings of the Des Moines conference.
A president of Clarinda's commercial club for many years, one of the orignal organizers of the Clarinda Chautauqua, and an advocate of civic , betterment in every form, Mr. Lisle was truly one of the great builders of Clarinda. It was his eagerness to build up the industrial resources of the city that led him to establish the Lisle Manufacturing Company which has developed one of the foremost industrial plants in Iowa. Till his death he continued as President and General Manager of this corporation. The Lisle Company Garage is also an outgrowth of his vision in this field—supported by the able co-operation of his son Edwin Lisle and other business associates.
It was only in the last few months that Mr. Lisle's splendid physique began to show the weight of years and even to the end his brave spirit never faltered. In failing health he left Clarinda, December 13, last and spent the winter in Florida, returning May 6. Three weeks after his return he was obliged to yield to increasing physical weakness and from that date he was confined to his bed. The primary cause of his rapid decline was hardening of the arteries, and from this condition he expired Sunday morning, June 13, aged 73 years and 8 months.
The funeral services were held Monday evening, at the family home, where Mr. Lisle had lived for thirty-five years, and his body was laid to rest near those of his loved ones in the Clarinda cemetery. .
The services were in charge of his pastor, Rev. J. M. Williams, assisted by his district superintendent Rev. Jay Kirkendall, his former pastor Rev. Abram S. Woodard and by his intimate friend Rev. Dr. Williamson of this city. Prayer was offered by Rev. E. S. Menoher of Villisca.
Music for the services was furnished by a quartet of male voices accompanied on the piano by Mrs. Claude Annan. Those composing the quartet were: Claude Annan, Chas. Keeran; Carl Orr and John Keener. The selections used for this occasion were: "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere," "Just Beyond" and "Jesus, Lover of My Soul."
The pallbearers were: Edwin and Harvey Lisle, Wm. A. Turner, A. A. Jeffrey, Orville C. Greene and Merrill Spry.
Those coming from a distance to attend the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Robbins, Hastings; Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Weber, Mrs. W. S. Alger and Mr. B. P. Past, Villisca; Mrs. Gertrude Nash, Los Angeles, Calif.; Mrs. James Russell, Ft. Dodge; Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Lahman, Missouri Valley; Mr. and Mrs. Merrill Spry, Essex and Mr. A. H. Jeffrey, Forest City, Mo. CLARINDA HERALD, Clarinda, Iowa, Jun 17, 1920
Those who knew him in his prime, in the days of his manifold activities, can hardly realize that the life work of C. A. Lisle is finished, and that no more on earth will he be greeted by the many who were accustomed to meet him as he went about his daily work. And yet he is gone; his body rests in the Clarinda cemetery; his spirit has flown to the rewards prepared for the Christian.
Death came to Mr. Lisle at his home in this city early Sunday morning, June 13, 1920. He had been in failing health for a long time, for something like two years, the failing was noticeable. Last winter he and Mrs. Lisle spent at St. Petersburg, Pla., for the benefit of his health. When he returned home this spring it "was noted in sorrow that he was not as strong as it was hoped he might be, and toward the last, as he was confined to his bed, his condition was significant of an approaching end that could not fail to be apparent, and of which friends and neighbors cared to speak but little.
Mr. Lisle's death occurred in the seventy-fourth year of his age: had he lived until the 13th of next October he would have reached the age of 74. He had been a resident of Clarinda since 1885, and until recent times there was hardly any local public matter or public enterprise in which he did not take lively interest. For many years he was best known as the editor of the Clarinda Herald. Finally he sold that paper to its present owner, P. B. Woolson. As a newspaper man he implanted his personality in The Herald and made it the kind of a publication which a great Eastern editor described . In his application to another newspaper—which people would "swear by or swear at." Now that Mr. Lisle has been out of active editorial work for years probably very few of any of those who differed with him would charge that he acted otherwise than as he believed for the right or as from his standpoint of view he felt he was justified in doing. He had his imperfections, just as all men have them, and as an editor was often criticised freely, even as he freely criticised others, and so he was a man kept in action. Perhaps The Journal might with proprietry refer to the fact that it had its tilts with The Herald in the days when Mr. Lisle was The Herald editor, but looking backward those tilts on either side seem to have been unnecessary. We never said so to Mr. Lisle while he was living, and neither did he ever express himself so to us, but very likely he came to feel about the matter just as we do, that in competition there was room for peaceful pursuit.
Mr. Lisle was generous in his subscriptions to his church and to a great variety of public causes. Anything in the way of public improvement he favored. He was a strong Methodist, strong in favor of prohibition, a Republican politically, in Americanism a devoted patriot; during the World war he was one of the most zealous in behalf of his country—the land of the stars and stripes. He was one of the organizers of the Clarinda Chautauqua assembly, and served as one of its officers; for a number of years he was president of the Clarinda Commercial club; he helped organize and for a number of years was a director of the Clarinda Trust and Savings bank; on the recommendation of the late Congressman W. P. Hepburn he was appointed postmaster of Clarinda, a position he held for about five years, between the administrations of Postmasters R. H. Chamberlain and J. H. Dunlap. Finally he began to feel the impelling influence of a desire for enlarged business, and associated himself with a strong organization in Clarinda in the manufacturing industry, becaming the head of the Lisle Manufacturing company, one of the leading business concerns in this city, and which does a national and international business, with a large and imposing building down near the Burlington Route passenger depot. Last year he and a few of his associates in business built a fine brick structure, 144x144 feet, at the corner of Sixteenth and Water streets, for a garage, he being at its head, and where is carried on the business of the Lisle Co. Garage, one of the most important garage businessess to be found outside of the larger titles, and in a building that would do credit to any city in the Union.
Mr. Lisle was a life long friend of William C. Brown, formerly president of the New York Central Lines, and together they have co-operated in different business enterprises in Clarinda. Mr. Lisle had the faculty of being entirely at home with distinguished men in various walks of life; he was easy to meet, a graceful conversationalist, and hospitable to the utmost limit of cordiality and kindness; he was an extensive traveler, frequently by rail before the days of the automobile and after the advent of that machine going both by rail and machine. East, west, north and south he went, and by travel added to his other knowledge. He was a great home man; happy in the companionship of his wife and children, and doing everything for them that a generous heart could provide; he was a kind hearted and generous neighbor, too. It was as natural for him to extend his hand for a cordial handshake as it was for him to meet a friend or acquaintance, and natural also, for him, in a general way, to remember to ask after one's health, and the health of one's family. He was remarkable, in fact, in his close attention to little details of courtesy and friendliness to those about him.
The funeral was held Monday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock at the beautiful family home on South Sixteenth street. It was conducted by his pastor, Rev. J. M. Williams, of the First Methodist Episcopal church of Clarinda, assisted by Reverends Jay Kirkendall of Corning, E. A. Menoher of Villisca, A. S. Woodard of Shenandoah, and Dr. W. C. Williamson of Clarinda. Mr. Menoher read the Scripture lesson; Dr. Kirkendall spoke as an old friend of the deceased; Mr. Woodard as his former pastor, Dr. Williamson as to the life of the deceased in the community, and Mr Williams as his pastor. In their references to Mr. Lisle the speakers were highly eulogistic. Each of the speakers brought out prominent points to the credit of Mr. Lisle. Could he have heard them he would have known that his helpful efforts had been and were appreciated.
At the funeral the following obituary was read by Rev. J. M. Williams:
"Charles Albert Lisle was born Oct. 13, 1846, in Belmont county, Ohio, the son of Joseph and Mary (Evans) Lisle. At 13 years of age he came with his parents to a pioneer farm near Panora, Guthrie county, Iowa. At 15 years of age he enlsited in one of the earliest of the Iowa regiments mobilized for the Union cause; but at training camp was taken ill with typhoid fever and for weeks lay near death, his ultimate recovery being so slow that he was unable—though trying to enlist a second time—to qualify for service before the war ended.
At the age of 18 he had equipped himself to teach and began his work as a teacher in the rural schools of Adams county, continuing there and in Guthrie county until he had financed his own supplementary education at Iowa Wesleyan University, Mt. Pleasant. It was there that he met Frances Lavine Spry, and, after her graduation and just prior to his own, these two were married Jan. 3, 1872. Their life together was ideally happy till terminated by Mrs. Lisle's death at the family home here in Clarinda, July 10, 1900.
Of the seven children two have preceded their father into the life beyond. Charles Vernon gave his life to save a younger brother from drowning, Sept. 20, 1890. Lorance Spry Lisle died March 15, 1913. The surviving children are Mrs. S. M. Greene, Mrs. William A. Turner, Edwin Lisle, Mrs. A. A. Jeffrey and Harvey M. Lisle. There are fourteen grandchildren.
Mr. Lisle is survived also by the devoted companion of his later years, formerly Mrs. Emma Harris Russell, to whom he was married Feb. 19, 1908.
Following his graduation at Iowa Wesleyan University Mr. Lisle became identfiied with the school work of the state—as principal of the Burlington high school and superintendent of the schools at Red Oak. For ten years he exerted an influence upon, the young lives entrusted to his supervision that endeared him to a large number of the men and women active in the life of Iowa today.
He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church for more than fifty years and was Sunday school superintendent here and in other places a total of thirty-one years. Even after his resignation as superintendent here he continued as teacher of a Bible class. He was a delegate to General Conference at Los Angeles in 1904.
Following his work in the Burlington high school Mr. Lisle entered the newspaper field, as editor and publisher of the Plain Dealer at Fort Madison, continuing there four years. At the end of that period, having sold the newspaper, he accepted a position with a bonding corporation to inspect public utility plants whose bonds were offered for sale. In this work he came to Clarinda to look over the waterworks and in the course of this duty chanced to stand upon the high hill at the west edge of the town. And as he looked out over the beautiful town with its boundaries merged with productive farm lands and encircled by verdant hills he said: "Here I will make my home."
He chose Clarinda; resigned his position, bought the Clarinda Herald and moved his family to this house. That was in 1885—more than a third of a century ago—and from that time till he entered his Heavenly abode at sunrise yesterday morning this has been his home, of all places the most loved. For the loved ones in this home and for his chosen community he has given the full measure of his strength and devotion."
Three hymns were sung at the funeral: "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere,"
"Just Beyond," and "Jesus, Lover of
My Soul." The singers were Claude
Annan, J. T. D. Keener, Charles Keeran and Carl Orr, with Mrs. Claude
Annan at the piano.
The pallbearers were the two sons of the deceased, Edwin Lisle of Clarinda and Harvey Lisle of Hastings, lowa; two sons-in-law, W. A. Turner of Clarinda and A. A .Jeffrey of Columbia, Mo.; a nephew, Merrill Spry of Essex, and Orville C. Greene of Clarinda, brother of a son-in-law, S. M. Greene, of the late Mr. Lisle. S. M. Green, who lives at Inglewood, Calif., and his wife, were unable to be at the funeral on account of the distance from Clarinda.
From out of town at the funeral were Hugh Lisle of Linden, brother of the deceased; Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Weber, Mrs. W. S. Alger, and B. F. Fast of Villisca; Mrs. Gertrude Nash of Los Angeles, Calif, and Mrs. James Russell of Fort Dodge, sisters-in-law of Mrs. Lisle; A. H. Jeffrey of Forest City, Mo., and Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Robins of Hastings. Mr. and Mrs. Rush Lyman of Missouri Valley also came for the funeral. Mrs. Clara Lahman of Missouri Valley, who helped her sister, Mrs. C. A. Lisle, care for the late Mr. Lisle in his final illness, was among those present at the funeral. The total attendance at the funeral was large.
There were floral offerings in profusion.
Many of the business houses in the city were closed for the funeral.
The death of Mr. Lisle is attributed to hardening of the arteries. CLARINDA JOURNAL, Clarinda, Iowa, Jun 17, 1920
A recent telegram to C. A. Lisle told him of the death of his brother, James Lisle, in Salem, Oregon. The late James Lisle was formerly a Methodist minister, being for a time connected with the Des Moines Conference which governs this locality. After that he went to Nebraska for a time, then to Oregon, where he was connected with the University of Oregon, later retiring to live in Salem, Oregon, where he died. By some of our people James Lisle will be remembered as the father of Charles Lisle, who for a time was connected with the Clarinda Herald, several years ago. For a time Charles had a position with the government, but now lives in Salem, being engaged in writing for magazines. CLARINDA HERALD, Clarinda, Iowa, Oct 25, 1917
Lisle, Mary Evans
Our Mother. The fourteenth of October, 1821, there was born to John N. and Jane Kinney Evans, a little brown eyed daughter to whom they gave the good old Bible name "Mary." The family home was a log cabin in the "dark hills" of Belmont county, Ohio, the hills darkened by the lofty forest trees that then Stood so closely together as to almost completely shut out the rays of the sun. It was amidst the environment and incidents of real frontier life that the little daughter was surrounded during her childhood days and as has always been the case in the development of a new country, she was denied many privileges that can be enjoyed by those who are so fortunate as to live after the pioneer has done his work. Little Mary, with her brother Elisha, who was two years her senior, attended the country schools, which were in session only three months during the year and in the winter when there was no work to do on the farm. In the same neighborhood, attending the same schools and surrounded by the same frontier environments, was a rugged boy with black curly hair and steel grey eyes, three and a half years older than Mary, who, in the course of time, was moved by that God given emotion and inspiration to seek for a partner to help in the establishment of a new home, and with an ambition to win the best and the handsomest girl in the circle of his acquaintances, it was not surprising that Joseph Lisle was frequently seen in the Evans home with the evident intention of winning the love and the hand of Mary. His efforts were successful and on a beautiful June day in the year 1838, the two young lovers were declared to be husband and wife by their school teacher, Justice Joseph Moose. A modest frontier home had been prepared by the groom and in a very few days the life work of the young people was begun in real earnest. As the years passed by the home was enlarged as was also the family circle. It was a family of the old-fashioned type, consisting of nine children as follows: John E., James, Emma, Charles A., Jennie, Sarah M., Thomas, Hugh M. and Mary P. The first break in the circle was when Sarah M. was taken by scarlet fever when five years old, the next was Emma, who at sixteen, was laid by the side of her sister as the result of an attack of diphtheria which prevailed as an epidemic in Barnesville, Ohio, and vicinity, taking whole families in a few hours. In August, 1868, Jennie, who eight months before became the wife of C. T. Lahman, of Panora, Iowa, died from an attack of typhoid fever. John E., while serving as a member of Co. C. of the Fourth Iowa Infantry, was wounded in the battle of Kenesaw Mountain and as a result of this wound and the effects of a serious attack of "camp diarrhoea" he never regained his rugged strength and in 1891 went to join the thousands of comrades who had gone before. Mary P., who had become the wife of Russell A. Laubach, died at the home in Wilton, N. D., in March 1908. Rev. Dr. James Lisle, for many years a member of the Des Moines conference and later of the west Nebraska conference, is now in the far west intending to locate in Idaho. C. A. Lisle has for twenty-four years been located in Clarinda, Iowa; Thomas Lisle is farming in North Dakota and Hugh M. is farming near Linden, Iowa, the old family home.
In 1860, with the desire to have more land for the children, it was decided best to sell the farm situated near Burnesville, Ohio, and go to the then far west, and all preparations were completed to make the start about September first for an overland trip to Guthrie county, Iowa. A few days before the time set for the long journey the family suffered from an attack of diphtheria resulting in the death of Emma, a lovely girl of sixteen years and the prolonged illness of different members of the family necessitated a postponement of the journey until March 1861, and the trip was made by boat from Wheeling, Va., to Keokuk, Iowa, and from there by teams to Guthrie county. During the following years the incidents and privations of frontier life on the prairie were endured by Father and Mother Lisle with a spirit of Christian fortitude that was an inspiration to their children and the examples of self sacrifice and devotion will never be forgotten by them.
In 1888 the golden wedding anniversary of Joseph and Mary Lisle was celebrated and the happy union was enjoyed until February, 1893, when the loving and loved husband and father died. Since the death of Father, Mother has lived in the home of her youngest son, Hugh, near Linden, and no mother could reasonably wish for a more comfortable home in which to spend her last days. After about a week's illness resulting from an affection of the kidneys, Mother Lisle was called to join the loved ones gone before, a few minutes before three o'clock on the morning of July 16, 1909, and the remains were carried to and deposited in the grave beside that of her loved husband, by three of her sons, Hugh M., Thomas and C. A., assisted by a grandson, Chas. W. Lisle, and two nephews, Henry and Joel Lisle. The funeral services were attended by a very large company of relatives and friends and were conducted by her pastor, Rev. Frank Perry, of the Methodist church, assisted by a former pastor, Rev. J. M. Ladd, now pastor at Fonda. Mother leaves a very large circle of friends who loved her on account of her generous and devoted spirit. Of her immediate family she leaves four sons, thirty-four grandchildren and twenty-six great-grandchildren. CLARINDA HERALD, Clarinda, Iowa, Jul 22, 1909
