VETERAN OF CIVIL WAR

Was David R Amsbaugh Whose Death Occurred Tuesday

David R. Amsbaugh, who died yesterday after a week's illness at his home in Windsor, six miles northeast of the city, was a veteran of the civil war, having served for three years in Co. C, 102d O. V. I. He had an excellent war record and spent six months in prison at Cahaba, Ala., after having been captured by the enemy during an engagement. He was persuaded by some of his comrades to attend the reunion of the regiment held in this city a few weeks ago as he was the only survivor of the regiment who had carried the flag and they were anxious to have him present. He was brought to the reunion in an automobile. He celebrated his eightieth birthday anniversary on Sept. 20.

Mr. Amsbaugh is survived by his wife and six children, Mrs. Core E. Hall of Crestline, Elmer, Oliver and Clarence Amsbaugh of this city, Delbert Amsbaugh living near home, and Orin Amsbaugh living in Ashland, also one half brother, Usal Amsbaugh of Abilene, Kan., two half sisters, Mrs. Mary A. Thompson of Wolcottville, Ind., and Mrs. Joanna Mann of this city, and ten grandchildren.

The funeral will be conducted Thursday afternoon with services at the home in Windsonr at 2 o'clock. Mr. Amsbaugh was a member of McLaughlin post, G. A. R., of this city and the post will attend the funeral, meeting at the G. A. R. club rooms at 12 o'clock Thursday and going to Windsor on the 12.25 interurban car.
