Obituary posted by Shirley Fritz:

David R. Hardesty was born in Portage County, Ohio on April 20th 1858 and departed this life December 17th 1914, aged 56 years, 7 months and 27 days. Death came after a long illness.

When one year of age he moved with his parents to Porter County, Indiana, where he grew to manhood. In 1879 he came to Kansas, locating in Lincoln County where with his father and brother, he was engaged in the milling business.

He was married to Anna Mary Kerr on December 25, 1884. To this union were born six children, three boys and three girls. One boy dying in infancy, the other children were at their father's bedside during the last days of his illness.

In 1898 he came to Ottawa county where he lived until 1911 when poor health impelled him to leave the farm. Since then he has made his home in Miltonvale.

A loving and faithful wife, two sons, Howard and Orlin of this place, three daughters, Miss Gladys also of Miltonvale, Mrs. Silas (Blanche) Miller and Mrs. Ernest (Oda) Simpson of Lamar, one brother Ulysses Hardesty of Seattle, Washington, two sisters, Mrs. Relief McKee of Seattle, Washington and Mrs. Mary Prouty of Lincoln, Kansas, together with many other relatives and friends are left to mourn his departure.
