Wickliff W. Sexton #40939839
Hi, James.
Would you happen to know what the inscription says on Wickliff's stone below his age: 47 yrs 10 m 18d?
I can not make it out, but am hoping it holds more information about him and it is not just a verse or saying.

Thank you,

Sexton Family Seeker

William Argo
Please add the following information:

WILLIAM ARGO was born in Jefferson County, Ohio, March 15, 1825, and died at his home in Decatur County, Iowa, March 30, 1898, aged 74 years and 15 days. He received his education at Mansfield, Ohio, and was married July 19, 1840, to MISS ANNA MARY J. MCILVAIN. In 1858 the family emigrated to Lineville and pre-empted 160 acres of land two miles west of that place.

In 1862 he enlisted in the Third Missouri Cavalry and served as first lieutenant under Colonel Phillips and was honorably discharged at the close of the war, when he retired to his home.

In 1886 they moved to Decatur County, where he has ever since lived. He was a great sufferer from exzema during the latter part of his life, which affected his eyes to the extent of making him totally blind for the last three years. His death was caused by inflammation of the bowels, his illness lasting just one week.

He was a great reader and was possessed of a well-stored mind. During his life time he had collected quite an extensive library. In religious belief he was inclined to the Cumberland Presbyterian. At the age of 17 he joined the Lutheran Church. As the time of his departure drew near he expressed himself as being ready to go. He leaves a wife, three sons, one daughter, twenty grand and twelve great grand children to mourn his loss.

Laughlin headstone
Hello, A lawnmower tore up the headstone for my family, pretty badly. I took your photo of the headstone, cleaned it up in paint shop pro, and it looks much, much better. Would you upload the photo in place of the one that's there now? I'm emailing it to the email address shown on your profile page, but I'm posting here in case it doesn't arrive.
