Rev Hiram Carter Annis
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 25, 1811
Madison County
New York, USA
Death: Dec. 4, 1897
Clayton County
Iowa, USA

On 16 September 1856, Hiram and Mary Annis purchased a small parcel of land (20 acres) in Clayton County, just north-east of the present town of Edgewood. Hiram also bought several tracts of land in Delaware County. (Note: Edgewood, Iowa is on the county border of Delaware and Clayton counties.)
Here, Hiram continued to farm and to preach the Methodist gospel. He was active in the local M.E. church, whose records show that Hiram was active as a "local preacher" throughout the 1870's. He was elected a trustee of the church at a conference held in Eades Grove on 6 July 1867, a position that he held for the next twenty years.

Son of James Annis and Betsey Winslow.
When Hiram died on 4 December 1897, in his 87th year, the following obituary appeared in the Edgewood newspaper:
"Hiram Annis died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Wm. Steele, in Edgewood, on Saturday, Dec. 4th. The deceased was born in Nelson, Madison County, N.Y., and was united in marriage with Mary Oakley at Freedom, N.Y. To their union eight children were born, of whom three daughters, Mrs. Wm. Steele and Miss Susie Annis of this place, and Mrs. A. Seward of Manchester, are left to mourn his loss. He was converted in early life, at the age of twelve years, and soon after united with the M.E. Church of which he remained a faithful member until death. During the later years of his life he was sadly afflicted which disabled him so much that he was forced to give up public work entirely, but was ever found at his post, ready and waiting for the Master's call. The last day upon which he spoke, he said that his race was nearly over and he was ready. Death came without a struggle and those who were watching by his bedside would not have known when the spirit took its flight if they had not stood watching every breath. The funeral was held in the M.E. church Tuesday at 11 o'clock, and the remains were laid to rest in the Edgewood cemetery, by the side of his aged wife whose death occurred several years ago. He has gone to his reward."
