Aaron H. Chambers
Lake City Graphic, Lake City, Iowa
April 23, 1891
Aaron H. Chambers was born Feb. 21, 1861, at Loudon, Cedar county, Iowa. He with his parents moved to Calhoun county in 1872 which, though he has traveled over a large portion of the United States, has continued to be his home. He had an honest generous heart; trusting readily his associates whether good or evil. In March, 1890, he made a profession of religion and united with the Christian church at Lake City. In February last while at Blockton, Iowa, he was taken sick. He was brought home and in better nursing and medical attendance hopes were entertained of his recovery. But he had no hopes of his recovery and bravely met death saying he was ready. Before his last delirium he made full arrangements for his burial. He died April 15, 1891; aged 30 years, 1 month, 24 days. He was buried in the Union cemetery whither his remains were followed by many sorrowing friends.
Gone to the glorious realms above;
Gone to the land of peace and love;
Gone in manhoods brightest day;
Gone from loving friends away.
Yes, gone but not forgotten here.
Mourned by friends who held him dear;
Keenly as a dagger's blow,
They feel the stroke which laid him low.
Farewell, dear friend, and from thy throne
On thy mourning friends look down;
Guide them by the beckoning hand,
Till they too reach the better land.
To the father bowed by grief,
Heavenly Father send relief;
Teach the brother and sister how to kneel,
In prayer to Thee their hearts to heal.
