Chas. E. Inman Succumbs to Illness of Long Duration - Veteran of Civil War.
__After having hovered between life and death for some months Chas. E. Inman, residing at, 418 First avenue west, died at his home at 5:30 o'clock last Saturday afternoon. He was a highly esteemed resident of this city and the news of his death was received with profound grief.
__Mr. Inman was born in Lansingburg, N. Y., Feb. 20, 1841. He removed to Iowa in 1853, subsequently settling in this city. He was united in marriage with Miss Martha A. Norton of Vinton on April 7, 1869. This union was blessed with five children, all of whom, with the mother, survive, viz., D. M. (Dudley) Inman, New York; F. L. (Frank) Inman and C. C. (Charles) Inman, Chicago; Mrs. W. W. (Wellington W./Nellie M.) Richards and Miss Carrie Inman, both of whom reside in this city.
__Mr. Inman was a member of the Olivet Presbyterian church and interested in the work of the church. He was a member of Company D, Eighth volunteer Iowa infantry, having enlisted in July 1861. After the capture of the regiment at Shiloh, Mr. Inman was one of the few to make his escape from the "Hornet's Nest." He continued to serve throughout the war. The remnants of the regiments captured at Shiloh, the Eighth, Twelfth and Fourteenth, were consolidated and served through the Corinth campaign and on the return of those taken prisoners the regiment was reorganized and served under Grant in the Vicksburg campaign. Later it participated in the capture of Mobile, Ala.
__Returning to his home in Benton county after the war Mr. Inman resumed his vocation. His military service was of the best and he was highly respected by his comrades.
__About twenty years ago Mr. Inman was a member of the police department of this city, serving as captain for a number of years. In this position, as in all others, he was a faithful, conscientious worker. Mr. Inman was also one of the organizers of the merchants' police force.
