Obituary of OSCAR F. GRANDY

Oscar F. Grandy, one of the best known old soldier’s of this county, died at his home near Garfield last Friday night, January 18th, of pneumonia and nervous prostration, aged fifty-eight years, ten months and twenty-three days. The funeral occurred Monday under the direction of B. F. Larned Post, G. A. R., and the remains were buried at Garfield.

Eight children were born as the result of this union, seven of whom survive him; Gertrude, a daughter, dying in infancy. He came to Kansas in November, 1876, having been a pioneer in this section of the state and was instrumental in building up and making the county what it is today. He was a kind, loving and indulgent husband and father, who was always ready to make sacrifices for those he loved.
