Joseph S. Nevius, an old time resident of this county and a brother-in-law of T.J. Parsons and Joseph Becket, Sr., died at Golden, where he was visiting friends.

Mr. Nevius came to Henderson County when a young man from Fairview with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Nevius, who settled on a farm near Raritan.

On the breaking out of the Civil War, he enlisted in Co. L Seventh Illinois Cavalry and served in the campaigns of that regiment with credit. After the war, Mr. Nevius engaged in the mercantile business at Raritan for a number of years. Closing out his business there, he removed to What Cheer, Ia., where he also engaged in mercantile pursuits. From What Cheer he went to Burlington, Ia., where he made his home until the time of his death. For many years he was a traveling representative of the Connor Mercantile Co. of that city and after that concern was absorbed by the Schramn-Schmieg Co., he traveled for a St. Louis house. Being compelled by failing health to quit the road, he engaged in the insurance business.

Mr. Nevius was twice married, his first wife being the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David Huggins, Sr., and his second wife a sister of Joseph Beckett, Sr., who lives south of Stronghurst. This wife and four sons are left to mourn. Of these sons, Marvin J. is employed in the government Printing Office in Washington, D.C.; Wilfred is paymaster in the office of Sec. of Agriculture in Wilson; Bert is an undertaker in the same city and Chester is in Panama where he holds a clerkship under the government... Interment was in the Burlington Cemetery.
