At the residence of his daughter, near Davenport, Iowa, December 13th, 1876, brother Robert Clift, in the eighty-seventh year of his age. Brother Clift was old-time Saint, an Elder, at Nauvoo. At the time of Joseph's death, and the scattering of the Saints therefrom, he refused to join with any of the factions, but he removed to Davenport, where he resided twenty-nine years, loved and respected by all who knew him. He was baptized into the Reorganization June 23, 1867, by Elder Richard Rowley, who also preached his funeral sermon, January 28th, 1877. Bro. Clift leaves a wife, two daughters, one son, three grand children, and four great grand children; also, a large number of friends to mourn his loss.
