Nathaniel Strevel Carl was born in Coburn, Canada, on August 13, 1837, and died at Onaga, Kansas, on January 11, 1927, aged 89 years, 4 months and 29 days.

In his early years his parents moved from Canada to New York, later moving to Indiana. When the civil war came, he and his father and his four brothers enlisted in the army. Mr. Carl enlisted in the 9th Illinois Cavalry, in which arm of the service he served his country through the great crisis of the civil war until its close.

He was married to Mary A. Norton on May 8th, 1867. Had he lived until May 8, 1927, they would have consummated sixty years of wedded life. To this union were born seven children, one child, Harry, having died in infancy.

Mr. Carl, with his family, moved to Kansas in the fall of the year 1884, living in Onaga and vicinity until his death.

He leaves to mourn his departure, his wife, and the following children: Mrs. Effie Irish, of Kansas City, Calvin Clifford Carl, of Council Grove; Mrs. Nellie Groomer, of Topeka; Mrs. Hattie Wasson and Ernest Carl, of Onaga, and Earl Carl, of Grants Pass, Oregon; also several grandchildren.

Mr. Carl passed away peacefully and almost without struggle, after only a few days of confining sickness, and could he have lived until August 13th, he would have attained the ripe old age of 90 years. It was a pleasure to meet him in the home or on the street, The infirmities of age seemed to make him genial and cheerful. He loved the society of friends and was delighted with the companionship of children. He was a great home man, and a most genial neighbor.

Funeral services were held at the Congregational church on January 13, in charge of the pastor, Rev. J. W. Cone. The singing was rendered by the quartet---Mr. and Mrs. C. Haughawout, Mrs. Dinwiddie and Mr. H. Grutzmacher, Mrs. Contance Randall presiding at the piano. The words of consolation were based on the text "I have fought a good fight", and the minister emphasized the importance of moral heroism in the realms of soul, the home, the neighborhood and citizenship. The members of the American Legion escorted the body to the Onaga cemetery where interment was made, and military honors were render.
