OBIT: David Hindman, Schuyler Pioneer, Died Saturday - David Hindman, a pioneer resident of Schuyler, died Saturday night at the county home, where he had lived for the past several years. Mr. Hindman was a son of Elijah and Sarah Ann Hindman and was born in Mansfield, Ohio, Jan. 4, 1838. He came here with his parents when a child and the greater part of his life was spent in Rushville or vicinity. During the active years of his life Mr. Hindman was engaged in farming and met with good success. While his education was limited to the rural schools he spent much time in profitable reading and was unusually well informed on history and kindred subjects and had a well-rounded education. He was of a mechanical turn of mind and after he had left the farm spent a great portion of his time working on inventions - none of which, however, were perfected to the point where they made any return on his investment of capital or labor. As a citizen and neighbor, Mr. Hindman was ever held in the highest respect by those with whom he had been associated thruout the long lapse of years. Monday afternoon funeral services were held at the Robt. Lawler funeral parlors, conducted by Rev. George E. Muran; interment in the Rushville cemetery.
