Pleasantville Man Is Suddenly Called
Leander Williams Fell On Way To Mill And Is Dead Soon After
Marion County News
Leander Williams passed away yesterday morning, August 11. He was feeling as well as usual Wednesday morning and started to the local feed mill to get some chicken feed. Just before he reached the mill he suddenly fell--and never revived. Chas. Clark happened to be near Mr. Williams when he fell and quickly went to his aid, but he had practically expired before Mr. Clark reached him.
Mr. Williams was taken to the local hospital for aid, but it was of no avail as his spirit had passed to the great beyond.
Mr. Williams was one of Marion county's oldest and most respected citizens and the news of his sudden death was a shock to the entire community. He had been a resident of Pleasantville for many years.
Deceased is survived by his wife and two sons, Edd and I. G. Williams, both of Des Moines who arrived here soon after their father's death.
Note: He actually died on August 12th.
