|Birth: ||Apr. 2, 1831|
|Death: ||Feb. 21, 1909|
With a constitution weakened by various attacks of illness, Nathaniel EMERY, succumbed to la grippe at 6 a.m. last Sunday at his home a short distance south of the Monon depot.
His home had been in Taylor Township since 1848 until a few years ago when he moved to Bloomfield to pass the declining years of his life.
He was born April 2, 1831, in Coshocton County, Ohio, and was therefore aged seventy-seven years, ten months and nineteen days. A funeral service was conducted at the family residence in the presence of a large gathering of relatives and friends Monday noon by Rev. E. H. WOOD, of the M. E. church, after which the funeral party left for Simpson Chapel in Taylor Township, where Rev. J. A. SPENCER, of the Christian church, conducted a service in the presence of a large gathering of old neighbors and friends and relatives of the deceased. Interment was in the cemetery adjoining the chapel grounds.
Mr. EMERY united with the M. E. Church many years ago at Simpson Chapel under the pastoral labors of Rev. Jesse WALKER, of previous memory. After removal to Bloomfield he and his wife attached their membership to the Methodist Church at this place and he continued a faithful and acceptable member until death. He was a good man and has gone to his reward.
He was married November 15, 1855, in this county to Miss Susan MCWHIRTER, who, with five of the eight children, survive him. The surviving children are Major Jonas A. EMERY, U. S. A. Retired, of New Castle, Indiana; Jesse W. EMERY, of Parsons, Kansas; Charles S. EMERY and Harvey N. EMERY, of Taylor Township, and Mrs. Lillie V. RAYBURN, of this place.
Mr. EMERY was proud of his service as a soldier during the Civil War, serving as a private in COMPANY G, ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY-NINTH REGIMIENT VOLUNTEER INFANTY, from February until May 1865 when he was compelled to retire on account of disease contracted in his brief service.
Mrs. Susan EMERY and children wish to extend their heartfelt thanks to the community at large for many acts of kindness during the last illness of their beloved husband and father, Nathaniel EMERY.
