Sunday’s Obituary: Henry Stafford of Mahaska Co, IA

Last week, I posted the obituary of Dr. Elam Stafford. This week, I’m posting an death notice of his brother, Henry Stafford. Both of them were brothers to my husband’s 3rd great-grandfather, Eli Stafford.  All three were sons of Thomas Stafford and Elizabeth Boswell.

{The copy of this clipping was hand-dated 1906}


Henry Stafford died at his home, 115 Second avenue west, on Dec. 13, of old age, aged 86 years, 2 months, and 3 days.  Deceased was born in Indiana but had lived in Iowa 62 years.  Deceased leaves a wife, and many friends, in whose memory of the departed will ever linger the recollections of an exempliary life.  Thus passes away one of Mahaska’s oldest pioneers.  Obituary next week.
