Another Old Soldier Gone
Archibald Race

Archibald Race, of Shellsburg, died at the soldiers home in Marshalltown and his body was brought back to Shellsburg for burial, which occurred on Sunday. A number of his old comrades of the 28th Iowa, of which he was an honored member, attended the services from Vinton. Mr. Race was an early settler of Benton County. His death occured last Friday. He was 73 years old and leaves three children, Mrs. Peora White, Mrs. Mary Hammond and Miss Carrie Rice.

{Submitter comment: Cemetery records states born March 12, 1831, Cochocton, Ohio died Mrch 31, 1915 (wrong year). I think, it should read 1905 Soldiers Home Marshalltown, Iowa. His daughter name is listed as Miss Carrie Rice, I would think should be Race.}
