THE TILLER AND TOILER, 10 January 1929
Obituary of AMOS W. LUMAN
Obituary – Amos W. Luman

Amos W. Luman, son of W. S. and Mary Ann Luman, was born in Fulton county, Ill., July 16, 1864, and died at Parson, Kansas, December 24, 1928, at the age of 64 years, 5 months and 8 days. He was united in marriage to Frances Belle Pratt on September 20, 1890, at Galesburg, Ill., to which union four children were born, three of whom survive. In 1905 he moved with his family to Rozel, Kansas, where he settled on a farm two miles north and a mile east of town. Mr. Luman united with the Church of the United Brethren in Christ at Pleasant Hill, Ill., in 1893. After moving to Kansas he transferred his membership to the Rozel Methodist church.

Mr. Luman is survived by his widow; three children Oswald and Mary Alice Cooper, of Hutchinson, and Edith Almquist, of Larned; four brothers, J. F. of Galesburg, Ill., and John, Ernest and Arthur, of London Mills, Ill.; one sister, Alice Karr, of Denver, Colo. Funeral services were held December 27 from the Beckwith mortuary. Burial was in the Rozel cemetery.
Rev. J. M. Alexander, who came here from Satanta to preach the funeral service, was a lifelong friend of Mr. Luman. Rev. Alexander knew him as a considerate husband, an affectionate father, a loyal citizen and a kind neighbor, and counted him one of his most lovable and hospitable parishioners. He was a hard working man and an example of faithfulness in helping his pastor build the Rozel church. When Mr. Luman was a young man he received an injury which did not bother him until it was aggravated after he moved to Rozel. The hard farm labor was too much for him and his health began to fail. His friends will miss him, but acquaintances are comforted by the evidences he gave that, as he realized that earth was fading from him, he knew Heaven was opening up.
