Darius George Merrihew, for many years a successful farmer near Coldwater, Kans., died near Cadillac, Mich., on November 22, 1915, of neuralgia of the heart, at the ripe old age of 82 years, 5 months and 20
days. He had, for about 7 years, lived on his large farm a few miles east of Cadillac. He had during that time, made many substantial improvements on what had been purchased as raw stump land. During his few years residence there, he won many friends by his kindly manner and sympathetic disposition. He had for many years been a faithful and consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal church. He was born in the state of New York on June 2, 1833. He moved at an early age to the west, settling on a farm near Maxwell, Iowa. There he raised a family of four children. In 1893 he became a resident of Coldwater, Kans. In 1906 he
moved to Michigan.
