*** IN LOVING MEMORY OF ***
John Crim, an old and honored citizen of Dodge town-ship, Boone County, Iowa passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. P. A. Mathre, of Stanhope; Hamilton County, Iowa. He was born in Vir-ginia on Sunday; October 2, 1825 and passed away on Saturday; May 9, 1914 at the age of 88 years, 7 months and 7 days. He with his parents moved to Ohio when a small boy where he grew to manhood. He was married to Salina Kail in 1847, who preceded him to the great beyond in the year 1893. To this union were born nine children, eight of whom are living. The funeral was held at Mineral Ridge at the M. E. church of which he has been a faithful member. He was a good friend and neighbor, and a kind and loving father. Reverend Knoer of the M. E. church of Stanhope, Iowa delivered a beautiful sermon from the ninth chapter and twenty fifth verse of Hebrews. Sooner or later all will reach the same destination and be with our Lord and Savior in the great beyond. The mound in the Ridgeport cemetery marks the resting place of the loved one but--memory dear will hold him in the hearts of his children and friends. Mr. Crim came to this part of the country and settled here when there were no houses in view but his own log cabin and lived to see the wild expanse transformed into the splendid prospects that greet our eyes today. He was a pioneer of pioneers whose ranks are nearly extinct. The sympathy of the friends extend to the relatives in the taking away of their loved one.
