The Hartford Day Spring, July 13, 1938, pg. 5

Rites Held Friday For Charles S. Brubaker

Charles S. Brubaker, 85, a resident of Hartford for the past 36 years, died last Wednesday afternoon at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Howard Butcher, just east of Stoughten Corners, his death following a long illness.

Funeral rites for him were held Friday afternoon from his farm home on North Center street, near the river, where he lived during his entire residence here. The Rev. Thomas Pollard, Methodist pastor, conducted the services and burial was at Maple Hill cemetery.

Mr. Brubaker was born August 1, 1853, his death on July 6, 1938, making his span of life 85 years, 11 months and 6 days. He was married in Illinois to Miss Myra Wheeland. They immediately took up their home on a farm west of Stony City, Iowa, where they resided for 14 years, and also resided at Gilbert, Iowa, for some time before coming to Hartford. They were members of the Evangelical church while living in Iowa, later transferring to the Congregational church at Gilbert. Mrs. Brubaker died a few years ago at the North Center street home which they purchased upon coming here.

Besides the daughter at whose home he was cared for during his last illness, Mr. Brubaker is survived by three grandchildren.
