JAMES H. BOOTHE
James H. Boothe was born at Knoxville, Iowa, Nov. 12, 1850, and died at his home in Chariton, June 3, 1915, aged 64 years, 7 months and 21 days. His parents came from North Carolina in an early day and settled near Knoxville, Marion county, Iowa, his father dying when he was but a small child.
He was married to Nancy J. Bennett Croy, January 14, 1872. They resided on a farm in Pleasant township, later moving to Chariton.
He made a profession of religion years ago and in his last moments he gave a bright and clear evidence of his acceptance with God. He was a kind husband, an obliging neighbor and those who knew him best speak words of commendation of his noble traits of character.
He leaves his wife and an adopted daughter, Mrs. Ruth Brandon, and a host of friends to mourn his departure.
Short funeral services were held from the home at 8 o'clock, conducted by Rev. E. E. Ilgenfritz, and the remains were taken to the Coal Glen church where the sermon was delivered by the local pastor at 10:30 and interment was made in the nearby cemetery.
Thus a good man has finished his life's work and gone to his eternal rest.
