Harvey Chapin Dead 

Harvey Chapin was born at Warsaw, New York, Sept. 18, 1827 and died April 11, 1913.
Was married Sept. 24, 1848 to Miss S. A. Jackson, who preceded him six years ago to the other world.  To this union were born seven children, two daughters and five sons, all of whom survive him, viz: George T., J. Fremont, J. Vinton, Will H., Huldah Simpson, Ellsworth N. and Eliza McDowell.
He moved from Palmyra Wis. in 1884 and has made his home here ever since.  He died after an illness of five days.  All that loving hands could do was done to relieve him but of no avail.  He died at the home of his son Fremont in Logan Township.  His son Mont and daughter Lida were with him when he passed away.  His son, Will of Washington and daughter Huldah of Scandia came too late to be with him in life.
He gave his heart to Christ when young and has been a fervent believer and faithful Christian for the last six years.  he was ready and willing to go to join his loved ones in the great beyond."
