Obituary from "Rockford Press," Rockford, OH, Friday, August 30, 1907:

"DAVID MIHM, AGED AND HIGHLY RESPECTED CITIZEN PASSES TO HIS ETERNAL REWARD

"Again the dark pall of death is cast over our neighborhood. Another family circle broken. Death has claimed one more of our number, and we are called to stand with sad sorrowing heart by the side of our friend, David Mihm. To some the summons come in the morning, to some at the noon tide, some in the shades of the evening. He heard the voice in the evening of life and answered its call. In his removal, much of the sunshine of his home has been taken away, a faithful member of the church and a true and loyal friend from his associates. With him life was not a failure, it was real. It was earnest and the grave was not its goal. We who knew him best shall be better, purer lives because of his example.

"David Mihm was born in Senaca Co., NY [sic], January 28, 1824. His parents moved from New York to Pennsylvania and later on to Wayne County Ohio, where on the second day of October, 1848, he was united in Marriage to Miss Delila Brouse. To this union were born six children, four sons and two daughters. Of these three sons and two daughters still survive with their mother, one son having answered the call in the morning of life. After his marriage, he with his wife moved to Van Wert County where he lived until 1860 when he moved to Monitor [Moniteau]Co., MO.

"At the out-break of the Civil War he enlisted in the 42nd and later in the 43rd mounted state troops where he served in the defense of the Union. In 1867 he moved back to Van Wert County, thence to Mercer County, where he lived until his death. In 1878 he was converted to God and united with the Church of God. Mr. Mihm was a true and faithful member of the church of his choice until his death, which summons were answered August 24, 1907, being 88 years, six months and 24 days old. The funeral services were held from the C.B. Church, Rev. Thomas Cost officiating, Interment in Riverside Cemetery."

David was a farmer.
