Mrs. A. Harmon was found dead in bed last Friday morning having died in the night. She was born in Westmoreland Co., Pa., 85 years ago. She was twice married, her first husband being named Essley and the children by her first marriage were O.P. Essley of Lenox, Iowa, Mrs. Col. Nicola, Martin Essley, Samantha Essley of this town. Emma died in infancy. Mrs. Essley married A. Harmon in 1858 and to them were born Ida Harmon and Addie Harmon of this town and Henry C. of Cedar Falls. He was just here a few weeks ago to attend the funeral of Mrs. Essley. All the children were here for Mrs. Harmon's funeral Sunday afternoon. She also had a half sister, Mrs. Ben Farmer of Wayland and all of the Farmers were up for the funeral. Mrs. Harmon was a Methodist all her life and Rev. U. S. Smith conducted the funeral. The choir aided him. The pall- bearers were neighbors. Frank McCaulley, Wilbur Woolary, Geo. Teas, Elmer Mason, Will Montgomery, and Geo. Hobson. Interment was in Elm Grove!
Thus one by one are these hardy old………called home.
