Joseph Howard

Joseph Howard was born in Gasconado county, Missouri, April 13, 1839.  In 1860 he was married to Mary E. Wright (should have said Mary E. Ryan).  To this union were born four children, who survive their father.  His wife having died, he married again and nine children were born, one of which passed on before about four years ago.

Mr. Howard enlisted in the 48th regiment of Infantry Missouri Volunteers in the year 1864, and served until the end of the war.  Mr. Howard was converted in the year of 1886 and united with the Friends church in Dorrance, Russell county, Kansas.

For the past few years he has been staying with his children.  He spent the last few months at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Eli Taylor, where he passed away Friday evening, November 10, 1911.  Mr. Howard was a devoted and loving husband and father ever thoughtful of the comforts of others.  His last words were "God bless my children."

At the time of his death, Mr. Howard was 72 years and 7 months of age.

Rev. Nixen of Ematon, a particular friend of the deceased conducted the services.

The bereaved ones have the sympathy of the entire community.
