FORMER OAKLAND RESIDENT IS DEAD
William H. Archer, Once Oakland Citizen, Died Last Week at Mt. Pleasant.
William Henry Archer was born at East Liverpool, Ohio, July 31, 1869; died at Mt. Pleasant, Ia., Feb. 4, 1935, at the age of 65 years, 4 months and 3 days.
He was a former resident of Oakland, a man of sterling qualities of heart and life, loved and respected by all who knew him, and who suffered in middle age the greatest loss that can befall one--a failing mind. His parents died at Grinnell some years ago and were buried at Oaklawn cemetery.
He is survived by a sister and brothers as follows: M. Agnes Archer of Grinnell, John W. Archer of Griswold, George W. Archer of Boise, Idaho; half brother, S. J. Cripps of East Liverpool, Ohio; nephews and nieces.
A short service was held at Oaklawn cemetery Thursday afternoon, conducted by P. H. Green. His body was laid to rest by the side of the loved ones who preceded him in death.
