Oranous Maynard (1862-1911), son of Solomon VanBuren Maynard and Mary Arvilla (Crane) Maynard.

ANCESTRY: The Maynards in this family are the direct descendants of John Maynard of Sudbury, Massachusetts.

DIED. "Oranous Maynard died Tuesday night at the home of his father, S. Maynard, near Richland, S.D. He had been a sufferer with paralysis of the throat for about a year, and death came as a welcome relief from the incurable malady. The Maynards are among the early pioneers of Union County, S.D. The family has much sympathy in this bereavement. Funeral services were held today and interment made in the Richland cemetery." (Obituary transcribed by Rod Anderson).

Died, at the home of his father [Solomon Maynard] near Richland, South Dakota, Raneus [Oranous] Maynard, age 48 years, of paralysis. Mr. Maynard was well known in Westfield and was respected by all who knew him. He was a member of the Masons and they had charge of the funeral service. The sermon was preached by Rev. James, of Westfield, and a long concourse of teams followed the remains to the grave, which was made in the Richland cemetery. The sympath of Westfield friends are extended to the father and sister who are left in the home." (Transcribed by Cathy Porter-Maynard).
