David J. [asper] Gant was born May 18, 1872, on a farm 8 miles west from Bedford, and died at his home in Bedford at 2:30 a.m., Tuesday, Feb. 21, 1922.

His parents were Samuel and Mary Almyra Gant, pioneer settlers in Taylor County, Iowa. He was married October 19, 1893, to Daisy E.

Mr. Gant united with the Christian church at Siam in 1894, moved to Bedford in 1901 and became affiliated with the Christian Church here.
