Obituary of LLOYD HOWELL
Death of Lloyd Howell, Pioneer of
Rozel Community

Lloyd Howell an old resident of the Rozel community whose death occurred Saturday at the home of a daughter living near Burdett and with whom Mr. Howell had been making his home of late, was buried at Garfield Monday in the family lot with is wife, mother and two sons, who had preceded him in death several years ago. The cause of Mr. Howell’s death was cancer.

The services were conducted at the grave by Rev. Charles Ruff, Baptist minister of Rozel. Mr. Howell was a member of the I.O.O.F. lodge, and a number of the members of the Larned lodge were present and acted as pall bearers.

Mr. Howell was 76 years old. He had lived on the same farm in the Rozel community for fifty years.

Lloyd Howell was born in Coshocton County, Ohio, July 23, 1857, and died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Dora Carlson, May 4, 1929, aged 71 years 9 months and 11 days.

Mr. Howell grew to manhood in Ohio, in 1878, while still there he was married to Sarah Francis Dugan. They came to Kansas in 1880 moving to the home which is still the old homestead located three miles southeast of Rozel.

To this union thirteen children were born, two of which died in infancy. Three passed to the great beyond after reaching maturity. They were: Mrs. Ida Smith in 1907, Walter in 1914 and Cleveland in 1917. Thos surviving are, Mrs. Jane Harris, Mrs. Elsie Butterworth, and Floyd, of California, Charles of Dakota, Ross, of Brownell, Mrs. Luella Merica, of Colorado, Mrs. Dora Carlson of Burdett, and Mrs. L. O. Bley, of Rozel.

He leaves also to mourn his death nineteen grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.
Mr. Howell’s life work helped to develop the raw prairie of Pawnee County and establish one of the stable homes from which his family went to homes of their own and where he held the children together after the death of his wife twenty-eight years ago. He remained there until about six months ago, when failing health caused him to make his home with his daughters, Mrs. Bley and Mrs. Carlson.

Funeral services were held at the Carlson home, the service was conducted by Rev. C. H. Ruff. All the children arrived except Charles, Mrs. Jane Harris arriving before his death. The floral offering was large and most beautiful.

It is ever sad to give up those we love and have been our mainstay so long and yet we can see, in a measure, the wise providence of God in permitting the home responsibilities to be accomplished and a relief from suffering.
A large community expresses sympathy for those bereft.
