Daniel Thornton Battershell, son of William Battershell and Elizabeth Wills Battershell, was born May 24, 1853, in Powell county, Kentucky, and passed away December 11, 1947. The youngest of a family which included three sons and three daughters, he moved when a small child with his parents to Urbana, Illinois, where he grew to manhood. He was married on September 13, 1874, to Margaret A Brookbank and was the father of five children, four of whom preceded him in death - Thomas O, Arthur R, Lester J, and Cora Florence. Mrs Battershell died September 6, 1910, and the sole survivor is a son, John Battershell of Lyons.
He loved his work, the practice of veterinary medicine, from which he retired 15 years ago. He was a lover of animals and outdoor life. A night was never too cold or stormy for him to answer a call, driving his horse and buggy, many times going horseback, or on foot if need be.
He suffered a stroke on December 1 and was conscious part of the time when he recognized those with him either his son or his wife was with him constantly - his son at the time of his death.
The survivors include his son, John Battershell; 15 grandchildren; 27 great grandchildren, and one great great grandson.
The pallbearers for the funeral were chosen by Mr Battershell several years ago but only two are living or able to attend the funeral service, sons of the chosen men acted in their stead. They were Orville Ellis, Estes Bethers, Charles Richards, George Gray, Hugh Ramage and Irvin Massey.
