Death: Jun. 18, 1926

Son of William Lovell & Sarah Jane Grace.

John G. Lovell, veteran of the Civil War and western stage coach driver in his youth, died at the C. Weidenfeller residence , 114 Second Ave., SW, where he had made his home for several years, Friday evening at 8:30. He had been in critical condition for the past two weeks following an illness which extended over a period of two years, caused by a complication of diseases. His sister, Mrs. Henry White, of Marion, called here two weeks ago by his serious condition, was with him in his final illness and soothed his last moments. John Lovell was a resident of LeMars for nearly 25 years and had a wide acquaintance , being of a sociable and friendly nature and a man who attended strictly to his own business. He was a good citizen, honest and upright; and was respected by a large number of acquaintances. John G. Lovell was born at Dixon, Scott County, Iowa, August, 1848, and was 77 years, 10 months, and 11 days old. he was the son of Will and Sarah Lovell of New York state and New Jersey state respectively. They were early settlers in Iowa and from them he inherited the rugged virtues characteristic of New England folk. He grew to manhood in Scott County and at the age of 16 enlisted in Company I, 44th Iowa Infantry, and served to the conclusion of the Civil War. After being discharged from the army he went west and worked at a number of places. He was employed as a stage coach driver in Wyoming for a number of years in frontier days with headquarters at Green River and experienced thrilling encounters with mail robbers and marauding bands of Indians. Mr. Lovell, in his narration of experiences, was always modest as to his own part, being constituted that way. Returning from the west he came back to Iowa and worked in the livery business at Sac City and {as] warden and from there came to LeMars where he was employed with Munro Bros., E.E. Herron, H. Butler and other horsemen until the livery business was finally relegated to obscurity by the automobile. John Lovell is survived by two brothers and two sisters, who are D.J. Lovell, of Coon Rapids, M.W. Lovell, of Las Animas, Colorado, and two sisters, Mrs. Henry White of Marion and Mrs. A.E. Bolon, of Clare, Iowa. A brief service was held Sunday afternoon at the home in charge of the members of Mower Post, G.A. R. and the body was escorted by his old comrades to the depot for shipment to Coon Rapids where the funeral will be held today.
