Elijah B. Dinsmore, son of Squire and Lucrecia Dinsmore, was born Feb 26, 1865 in Warren county, Iowa, and departed this life at his home in Mt Moriah, Mo., Jan 19, 1948, being at the time of his death 82 years, 10 months and 24 days old.
Mr Dinsmore was the last surviving member of a family of nine children. He with the other children were bereft of a mother's care early in their childhood, and he, being one of the eldest, assisted in caring for the younger ones of the family.
On July 23, 1893, he was united in marriage to Joan Gay, and to this union four children were born: Tessie (Mrs Alfred Moss) and Cecil, who preceded him in death, Mrs Ruth Bane and Harold Dinsmore, both of Mt Moriah, who, with the loving companion, are left to survive him.
Most of Mr Dinsmore's life was spent in the High Point community, where he united with the High Point Methodist church at the age of 21 and lived a faithful Christian life, always being found in services when his health would permit. In 1939 they moved to Mt Moriah, where he was a faithful worker in the Methodist church. Mr Dinsmore had been in failing health for several years, but his last illness was of short duration and his passing was as he had wished it to be - quiet and peaceful - and just as the day was beginning to wane Monday evening, he was called to his heavenly reward. Mr Dinsmore was a kind and generous man. He was truly loved and respected by everyone in the community where his kindly Christian life will ever be remembered.
