OBITUARY

THE CHARITON DEMOCRAT
Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, July 29, 1886

Another old land-mark of Lucas county has gone. Isaac Renfro, one of the oldest men in Lucas county, and one of the earliest settlers of English township, died at Lucas on Wednesday night, July 21, and was buried in the country graveyard near his former home.

Mr. Renfro, we are told, was a pensioner of the War of 1812, which would necessarily make him more than ninety years of age. Mr. Renfro lived in Chariton a few years with parties who took care of him. On their removal to Lucas, a year or so ago, he went with them.

He had no immediate relatives here, we believe, and his last years were not as happy as they should have been. He had sufficient property to amply provide against want.
