Vinton Eagle, November 17, 1882

Rev. S. Sutton

DIED. -- Rev. S. Sutton, at Toledo, Iowa, Nov. 11, 1882, aged 51 years, 10 months, and 2 days.

The remains were brought on Monday, by his wife and son to their home near Vinton. He was buried from the United Brethern church in Eden township, on Tuesday, Nov. 14. The funeral was conducted by the writer and was largely attended by the people of that vicinity.

Elder Sutton was a member of the U.B. Church and also of Iowa Annual Conference. He has been a minister of the church for 30 years. He has been pastor of Vinton circuit for two years, and had just been assigned by the conference for three years on Vinton circuit. While in attendance at the session of the annual conference at Toledo, Iowa, Oct. 29, he met with a painful accident, by which his left hip was dislocated. He was doing well and excepted to return to his home by Nov. 13th or 15th at the farthest, and on the day of his death was able to be up, and walked about the room upon his crutches. While resting upon a reclining chair reading the bible-- his wife who was attending him stepped into an adjoining room a few moments and upon hearing a noise like some one snoring in sleep she came back, and found him dying.

Bro. Sutton stood in the front rank of the ministry, fully abreast of the times in which he lived.

He has served some of the best charges in the Iowa conference, with great acceptability. He has also served as Presiding Elder for a number of years.

His home has been near Vinton for the past two years, and that neighborhood hold his memory as precious.

After his body was placed in its last resting place, the congregation were invited back to the church, and Rev. W. B. Able made an appeal to them for $200 to cancel the debt upon the home of the family, and the people responded nobly giving $208.

The church has lost an able minister--society a bright ornament, and his family their staff and support.

He leaves a wife and seven children. May the God of comfort an consolation grant to them a large share of divine grace and raise up friends to them in the day of adversity.
