Wm. B. Pierce Passes Away of Old Age Wednesday Afternoon

William. B. Pierce passed away at his home on north River street in Iowa Falls Wednesday afternoon about six o'clock. He had been very poorly for some time. The funeral was held Friday forenoon at ten o'clock at the house and the services were in charge of Rev. DeWitt Clinton of the Methodist church. Burial took place in Union cemetery. The old soldiers served as pallbearers.

W.B. Pierce was born April 7, 1842, in New Jersey and was a son of Uncle Bennie Pierce, a well-known pioneer resident of this vicinity who passed away in Iowa Falls, a few years ago. The deceased came to this city in April 1865, following the war and has resided ever since in Iowa Falls and vicinity.

Mr. Pierce was united in marriage to Miss Sarah Teagle in March 1865. To this union were born four children. Two died in infancy and Mrs. Mattie Keller passed away fourteen years ago last December. Elmer B. Pierce is the only surviving child.

Mr. Pierce has five brothers and sisters living and five dead. The following are Alfred Pierce of Arkansas, Jesse F. Pierce of California, Emeline Reynolds of Iowa Falls, Gus Pierce of Iowa Falls, and John Pierce of Colorado.

Mr. Pierce was a Civil war veteran, having served in the Union armies from 1861 to 1865. He was a member of the Iowa Falls G.A.R. Post. He was well-known to most of our residents and was pioneer type of rugged citizenship that commanded the respect of all people who knew him.

The deceased has many friends in this vicinity who extend their sympathy to the relations in their sorrow.
(Iowa Falls Sentinel, Tuesday, April 15, 1918, p1)
