Daniel Albaugh Dies
Twenty-Fourth Iowa Veteran Succumbs to Illness at His Home in Linn Township
Daniel Albaugh, an honored veteran of the civil war and a resident of this county for nearly seventy years died at his home in Linn township Tuesday. The funeral services were held yesterday and were attended by a number of his surviving comrades from Tipton.
The deceased was born in Carroll county, Ohio, in 1839 and when a boy of 13 years came to Cedar county with his parents. In 1862 he answered the call of Abraham Lincoln and volunteered in Co. C of the 24th Iowa Infty in which he served until the close of the war. He was in some of the hardest fought battles of the war including Champion Hills, Vicksburg, Winchester, Cedar Creek, and Fisher's Hill. He marched to the sea with Sherman's army and had a soldier record of which any man might well be proud.
After his return from the war he was married to Miss Jane Glancy of Linn county. They began their married life in a log cabin on a Linn township farm. His long life in that community won him the esteem and respect of all and his habits of industry enabled him to accumulate a competence and become one of the substantial citizens of the community.
He was never an aspirant for public office but such was the confidence in which he was held that he was frequently called to fill township and school offices.
