Birth: Aug. 19, 1834
Geauga County
Ohio, USA
Death: Feb. 7, 1914

Myron Stafford, who had been ill for several weeks, gradually losing strength, died Saturday Feb. 7, at the home of his daughter and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. Swain. He had never fully recovered from a stroke of paralysis, which he suffered Sept 2, 1912, and his last weeks have been full of suffering of which he made no complaint. The funeral services were held Monday at 2 o'clock from the Methodist church, Rev. W. E. Van Buren officiating. Burial was made in the West Union Cemetery.

Myron Stafford was born Aug 19, 1834 in Geauga County, Ohio and died Feb 7, 1914 at the age of seventy-nine years, five months and nineteen days. He came from Ohio to West Union with his parents in 1852 and has made this county his home ever since. He was married Jan 20, 1860 to Miss Margaret Chochran, who preceded him in death Nov 18, 1906. They were the parents of of four children, two of whom, Mrs. H. M. Carmichael and Mrs. R. C. Swain, with one sister, and brother, seven grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren survive him. Mr. Stafford was a member of the Methodist church, also of the I.O.O.F, and the members of the local Odd Fellows' lodge attended the funeral in a body. Mr. Stafford was a man of the kindest and most cheerful disposition, enjoying life to the fullest, and making it brighter for all the people within range of his kind and his sunny nature. A large circle of of friends, who he maintained even in his later and less active years will deeply regret his death. (West Union Newspaper, from the Fayette Co. Historical Society, West Union, Iowa 1948)
