Theo. Demouth, 80 Passes Quickly
Drops Dead in His Garage. Civil War Veteran. Was a Sterling Citizen
Our citizens were painfully surprised to learn of the sudden death of Theo. DeMouth, which occurred at his home at Cylinder Friday afternoon of last week. He was about as usual and was doing some work in his garage when death came. A number of neighboring ladies had called on Mrs. DeMouth to spend the afternoon. The little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Kliegl, a granddaughter of Mr. DeMouth, came into the house and told her mamma that her grandfather had fallen on the floor. She repeated the statement and her mother made an investigation. Her father was found lifeless. Heart failure had taken him. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon. Services were conducted at the M. E. church at that place. Rev. Stevens officiated. He paid a well deserved tribute to the worth of Mr. DeMouth as a Christian gentleman and as a neighbor and citizen. The burial was in Evergreen cemetery south of this city. There was a large assemblage of relatives and old neighbors. The pall bearers were L. N. Sprout, Geo. Wright, Henry Dresach, Arley Chism, Gay Larson and Mark Frederick.
Mr. DeMouth was born at Boonton, Morris County, New Jersey, Oct. 28, 1847. He had almost reached his 80th year. He was married at Harlan, Illinois, May 24, 1974 to Lucinda Foster. Mr. and Mrs. DeMouth celebrated their golden wedding a few years ago. Mr. DeMouth is survived by his widoww, one daughter and three sons. The daughter is Mrs. Mabel Kliegl of Emmetsburg. Another daughter, Mrs. Edith Wells, passed away January 21, 1903. The sons are Frank of Ankeny, Walter of Storm Lake, and Clarence of Atlantic. Mr. and Mrs. DeMouth came to this county in 1887. They settled on a farm a mile east of Cylinder. In 1900 they moved to Cylinder where they subsequently resided. When the rural mail route was established at that place Mr. DeMouth was appointed carrier. He held the position until 1920. He was an active an valued member of the I.O.O.F. He also served in the U.S. army during the Civil War.
Mr. DeMouth was one of the most upright, dependable, patriotic citizens of Palo Alto county. His record during the Civil War was one of heroic service and high honor. He fought bravely in several battles in the vicinity of Washington and Richmond for several months before the end of the great engagement. Stronghold after stronghold was blown up by the Confederates and the situation for the Union soldiers was at times very hazardous. He visited the historic battlegrounds a few years ago on his way to Florida to spend the winter. He was in the graqnd review at Washington after the close of the never-to-be-forgotten struggle. As a private citizen Mr. DeMouth was farseeing, energetic, frugal and successful. He and Mrs. DeMouth were the parents of an excellent family. The deceased was warm hearted, genial, kind, hospitable and neighborly. He was enterprising and supported warmly up-to-date undertakings. He was liberal and broad-minded in his views on public matters and he was willing to give and take. The writer often met him and conversed with him about his trips from place to place after he retired from the active affairs of life. We admired him for his many fine traits and we learn with profound regret of his sudden taking off. Our sympathy goes out to Mrs. DeMouth and to the deserving sons and daughters in their bereavement.
