Paralysis Takes Gilman Resident
John D. Kindig Dies After a Short Illness at His Home in Town
John D. Kindig, a prominent retired farmer of Gilman, died at his home in that city Friday morning after an illness of a few hours. He was seized with an attack of paralysis and gradually lapsed into a state of unconsciousness. Death came peacefully at 9 a.m.
Mr. Kindig, moved from a farm near Gillman a few years ago and had been living a retired life. His son, Emory G. Kindig, is cashier of the Almet Powell bank in Gilman.
He is also survived by a widow and two daughters, Mrs. John Olson of Parsons, Kansas and Mrs. Ellis Lindsey of Onarga.
The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at the Presbyterian church in Gilman and burial was in the Onarga cemetery.
John David Kindig was born in Augusta county, Virginia, June 14, 1852. When three years of age his parents came to Woodford county, Illinois. There he grew to manhood. He received his education in the public schools, to which was added two years in Eureka College. On Nov 3, 1874, he was united in marriage to Martha Elizabeth Gish. To this union were born three children, Mrs. Ellis Lindsay of Onarga, Emery G. of Gilman, and Mrs. Luella Olson of Parsons, Kansas.
Mr. and Mrs. Kindig came from Woodford county to Iroquois county thirty years ago residing on a farm near Danforth. Here was home for twenty-one years, and for nine years past the home has been Gilman. When eighteen years of age, he united with the Christian church at Roanoke, Illinois, and from that day until his departure, he has lived a Christian life. Mr and Mrs. Kindig transferred their membership from Roanoke to Onarga when that church worshipped in a school house.
There remain to mourn his passing a devoted wife whose constant companionship has been a benediction for thirty-seven years and one week; the two daughters and son above mentioned and nine grandchildren, one sister, Mrs. James Wine, Benton Harbor, Michigan; three brothers, Albert M. of Onarga, Arthur J. of Parsons, Kansas and Benjamin F. of Carson City, Colorado.
Mr. Kindig was a devoted husband and father, quiet, unassuming, and without an enemy in the world. His going will be missed by more than his loved ones, but "Let not your heart be troubled, ye believe in God, believe also in me."
