Another Veteran Gone

Amos Walton, of Penn township, Madison county, Iowa, passed away in peace Jan. 22, 1887, after a lingering illness of five months. His disease was Catarrh and Bronchial trouble. In all his sufferings not a murmur or complaint was uttered. He trusted in Christ, the living God, and was perfectly resigned to his will, praising his Saviour on his death-bed.

Amos Walton enlisted in Co. B 7th Regiment, Indiana Vol. on the 13th of Aug. 1861 and was discharged from the U. S. service in 1864 having served 3 years. Thus the old Veterans, one by one answer at the last roll call. He was buried at Fairview church cemetery with military honors conducted by the De Soto Post. Funeral discourse by Rev. Payton, of De Soto, Iowa.

He leaves a widow and seven children to mourn the loss of a kind and affectionate husband and father. May God sustain and comfort those that weep and mourn and may they consecrate their lives to His service.
