His obituary reads:
John W. Garn was born in Sandusky, County, Ohio, March 8, 1835 and departed this life February 2, 1916, aged 81 years, 10 months and 25 days.
On August 20, 1863, he was united in marriage to Rebecca Hammel [sic] and to this union was born ten children, Minnie E., David F., Samuel S., James W., Ida M., Anna F., Lola A., Annis E., Emma Blanch, Maidie B. All survive except Ida May, who died in infancy.
There are also seventeen grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
After a long, useful and active life Mr. Garn was called home, and we shall miss his genial smile and hearty hand-shake.
He was a great lover of his own home and in his younger days enjoyed no sport so well as hunting and fishing.
As a neighbor he was never known to refuse kindness and would share his last crust with a friend.
The sympathy of the community is extended to the widow and family. May the sheltering arms of our all-loving Father be thrown around the sorrowing ones.
The funeral, Ref. Steffe and Undertaker Renshaw officiating, was held from the M. E. church in this place last Saturday afternoon. Burial in the village cemetery.
