Obituary of HIRAM R. McDANELD

Hiram R. McDaneld, father of Mrs. Ward H. Butcher of this city, died at the New Hospital in Chillicothe, Mo., on Sunday, April 17, 1921. At the time of his death he was 77 years of age. He was a native of Indiana. Being left an orphan at the age of 7, Mr. McDaneld knew many of the hardships of pioneer days. At the age of 17 he enlisted in the Union army and for three years he took an active part in the Civil War. He was captured by the confederates and thrown into Andersonville prison and nearly starved to death during the nine months he was held a prisoner. A few years after the close of the war. Mr. McDaneld was united in marriage with Miss Mary Griggs. To this union, 12 children were born, 9 of whom survive. Mr. McDaneld was a good father and husband, and a good neighbor and in all his business dealings his integrity was never questioned. Several years ago, Mr. and Mrs. McDaneld retired from active farming and moved from Dawn, Mo., which had been their home for many years, to Sulpher Springs, Ark. where they continued to make their home. About two weeks ago Mr. McDaneld became seriously ill for the first time in his life and was taken to a hospital in Chillicothe, where he died. The immediate cause of his death was uremic poisoning.
