CIVIL WAR CO D. 10TH IND INF
Isaac N Chenoweth died at 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon at the Indiana State soldiers’ home from the effects of a stroke of paralysis. He was stricken at 2 o’clock yesterday morning and did not regain consciousness, passing away in a peaceful manner. He was surrounded by the members of his family when the end came. Mr Chenoweth and his wife were admitted to the home a week ago, the former going there in the hope of benefitting his health. Mr Chenoweth was born in Pike county, Ohio, on March 20, 1840, and came to this county with his parents when he was two years old. It may be said that his entire life was spent in this county. He enlisted for the civil war in Company D, Tenth Indiana Infantry, and served for two years in that command. After the close of the war he returned to this county and located in Shelby township. He was elected Justice of the Peace and served for twenty-nine years in that capacity. He was married on March 3, 1870, to Miss Mary Mathers, who survives with three daughters, viz: Mrs Elmer Rodenbarger, of Montmorenci; Mrs George K Steen, of Lafayette, and Mrs John Russell, of Chicago, The remains were taken from the Soldiers’ home to the Folckemer undertaking establishment to be prepared for burial, and will be taken today to the family residence at Montmorenci. Mr Chenoweth was a man of intelligence and was a close student. He was fond of writing and made a number of valuable contributions to local newspapers. He was a man of kind disposition and generous impulses, hospitable and charitable, and was admired by a large circle of friends. The funeral will be conducted from the Montmorenci Methodist church tomorrow afternoon at 2 o’clock. Rev J H Rayle will officiate and the interment will be made in the Montmorenci cemetery.
