He moved to Kansas Aug. 17, 1882 and lived on the same farm during the remainder of his life.
He gave assurance of his testimony many times in his recent illness that he had surrendered all and was ready to go to his home beyond.
Grandpa was one of our greatest citizens. he was a kind and cheerful husband and father and an honorable and upright man. He will be missed by a host of friends and neighbors. He leaves to mourn their loss three sons, I. E. Deadmond of Ashland, Ore., J. W. Deadmond of Modesto, Calif., and J. H. of Sterling, Kans; four daughters Mrs. Mattie Lavielle of Sterling, Kans., Mrs Levina Baker of Plevna, Kans., Mrs. Loretta Burtch of Modesto, Calif., and Mrs. Susan Atwood of Modesto, Calif.; thirty-one grandchildren; thirty-seven great grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; two brothers, Andrew Deadmond, 93 years, and Bluford Deadmond, 90 years, both of Salem, Ill.
Grandpa Deadmond lived to a ripe old age and after two months of illness passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Mattie Lavielle, after saying he would be glad when God saw fit to call him to a better home.
Dearest father, thou hast left us,
We thy loss do deeply feel,
But our God who hath bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.
