THE WESTERN STAR, 23 August 1907
Obituary of J. W. STANFIELD

J. W. Stanfield died in Protection on last Sunday at the age of nearly 74 years. For the past few years, he had been making his home with his children in different parts of the country and at the time of his death was on his way from the north to visit a son who lives near Palace,

The Star is furnished with the following obituary.

He was married in 1863 to Elizabeth Brenamon and was blessed with six children, five of whom survive him, as follows: Mrs. Olive Auten, Wichita, Kansas.; Miss Grace Stanfield, Wichita, Kans.; Mrs. Jessie Dunn, Oklahoma City, Okla.; W. J. Stanfield, Palace, Okla. and, E. S. Stanfield, Norfolk, Nebr. Mr. Stanfield was very patient during his illness, exhibiting beautifully the "spirit of Christ." The writer visited him the day before his death and found that he was fully prepared to go. He said, "That the will of the Lord was his will." While the family is bereft of a kind, loving thoughtful father, yet we feel that he is gone to that clime where sorrows are no more, and where tears are crystallized and made jewels for the Master's crown. The town and community extend their sympathy to the bereaved family.

J. W. Stanfield was born November 13, 1833, in the state of Illinois, and died August, 18, 1907, in Protection, Kansas. He enlisted in the Civil War in 1864 and served as a soldier for 3 1/2 years, serving as a
member of the Seventeenth Iowa Infantry and later of Co. K, Fifteenth Iowa Infantry. He was a loyal and faithful soldier. He attained the rank of second lieutenant. Funeral services were conducted at the M. E.
church and were in charge of the pastor, Rev. R. O. McClure. Interment in the Protection cemetery.
