WILLIAM STONEKING

William Stoneking was born in Ripley County, Indiana, May 24 1844, aged 76 years and 13 days.

He died on June 3, 1920.

He served his country as a soldier [Private, Company A, 83rd Indiana Infantry] in the Civil War for about four years.

He moved to the West about 35 years ago, and has resided in the Camp community, 28 miles northwest of Guymon for about 14 years.

The funeral services were conducted from the Camp Baptist Church by H. T. Crocker of Guymon, in the presence of a host of friends, and his body was laid to rest in the Camp Cemetery to await the resurrection morning.

(Published in The Guyman Herald, June 10, 1920.)
