Death of William Shoafstall

Died, at his home in this city, Wednesday, June 3 at 10 a.m., William Shofstall. The deceased was born in Indiana, on October 17, 1842, where he lived until about seven years ago when he came to this county where he has since resided.

The deceased has been in ill health for a number of years with asthma which finally caused his death. The deceased was a bachelor, having lived with his brother here for a number of years. Besides his brother, John, with whom he lived, he leaves four other brothers -Theodore, who lives west of town; Zacharia of Prairie City, Iowa; Samuel of Atlantic City, Iowa and Jacob of Fort Scott Kansas.

Funeral services were held from the Christian church this afternoon, with Rev. Perry Schuler preaching the sermon. The members of the G. A. R. attended the services in a body.
