Hi, this tombstone definitely says he died in 1909 but I have obits that say Jan 1908. Interesting!
Wm. Clark Street died suddenly at the home of his step son, Clarence Cole, in southwest Clarinda. Only a few days before he had arrived from Hot Springs, Ark., where he had been for his health and stopped off here on his way home to Mancelona, Mich., for a visit with his step son, but was feeling poorly upon arrival. He continued to grow worse and soon passed away at the age of 72 years, 4 months and 1 day. Mr. Street formerly lived out near Norwich and was well known to many, as well as Miss Sarah Street who resided in this city a number of years. The funeral was held at 3:30 Tuesday from the M, E. church, conducted by Rev. Able assisted by Rev. Maclean, and the remains shipped to Mancelona, Mich., on the 5:35 train for interment.

W. C. Street, of Mancelona, Mich., died late Friday night at the home of his step-son, C. W. Cole, in the southwest part of this city. Mr. Street, who had long suffered from chronic bowel and kidney trouble, contracted while serving in the Union Army during the war of the Rebellion, had just arrived in Clarinda on Wednesday of last week, on his way home from Hot Springs, Ark., where he had spent two months in the hope of recuperating his health., Mr. Street was 72 years old at the time of his death, having been born in 1835, in Michigan. He served in the Civil War as a member of the 20th Indiana Battery. Mr. Street was a brave soldier, and was badly wounded in the right shoulder at the battle of Shiloh, the effects of which wound he carried with him until the time of his death. Mr. Street was at one time a resident of Page county, moving here in an early day and settling on a farm near what was then known as Tarkio, near the present site of Norwich. From this place he moved to Des Moines in 1879, and some years later returned to the vicinity of his old home near Mancelona, Mich., where he has since continued to reside. The only surviving relatives are C. W. Cole of this city, and Mr. Cole's sister, Mrs. Mary Weter of Mancelona, Mich. Mrs. Weter arrived here Saturday in response to the telegram announcing Mr. Street's death.
The funeral of Mr. Street will be held this afternoon at 3:30 at the residence of Mr. Cole, Rev. J. W. Abel conducting the services. The body will be taken to Mancelona, Mich., for burial. CLARINDA HERALD, Clarinda, Iowa, Jan 28, 1908
