THE LARNED EAGLE-OPTIC, 6 September 1901
Funeral of JESSE K. BARTOO
Funeral of J. K. Bartoo

The mortal remains of Jesse K. Bartoo were buried from the Methodist church last Friday afternoon, with Masonic and Grand Army honors. The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. C. D. Hestwood. The remains were escorted to the church by the members of Larned Lodge, No. 167, A.F. & A.M., B. F. Larned Post, No. 8, G.A.R., and the ladies of White Cross Chapter, O.E.S., and the Woman’s Relief Corps. Eight Sir Knights of Apollo Commandery No. 16 acted as special escort. The floral offerings were numerous and beautiful. The funeral procession from the church to the graveyard was the longest that has formed in this city since the death of the late Capt. Henry Booth.

The deceased was born in Steuben county, New York. He enlisted in the union army October 4th, 1861, and served in the army of the Potomac under Rosecrans and Meade. He was wounded three times. He was honorable discharged October 9th, 1864. He came to Pawnee county with his family in 1875, and had been in business in this city since 1885. Any tribute to his memory which we could write would be superfluous. His wife says, “He was a kind and loving husband.” One of his army comrades says, “He was a brave and good soldier.” A Larned business man says, “He was honorable and upright in all his business transactions.” His Masonic brethren say, “He was a true and worthy brother mason.” This leaves nothing else to be said except that “an honest man is the noblest work of God.” May his ashes ever rest in peace.
Card of Thanks

To the many friends who rendered such kind, generous and loving assistance during the sickness, and spoke such comforting words of consolation after the death of our husband and father, and to the members of Larned Lodge No. 167, A.F. & A.M., we take this method of expressing our most grateful thanks.  Mrs. Bartoo and Children
