Passed Away Wednesday, October 29.

A Former Resident of This City Dies While Visiting His Son.

James Granville Redman was born near Monticello, Wayne county, Kentucky, April 15, 1837. Died at the Home of his son in this city October 28, 1913, aged 76 years, 6 month and 13 days.

He grew to manhood amid the valleys and mountains of his native state. His character was as pure and strong as the Soathern breezes that blew around his Kentucky home. He was a man of more than ordinary intellect, and unusual energy and will power. He daunled at no difficulty, overcoming every obstacle. He was self educated, teaching at an early age to defray, academic expenses, holding the office of County Superintendent of public Instruction and other, offices of honor and trust. At the age of 27 he came north to Iowa, and was engaged in the mercantile business at Kellogg for 20 years. In 1886 he was united in marriage to Mary A. Antle. To this union six children were given, three of whom are living; Mrs. James E. Durbin of Galesburg, Illinois, F. E. Redman of Elk Falls Kansas, and T. B. Redman of this city. The mother departed this life in 1879 at Kellogg, Iowa.

At the age of 20 he experienced ' a bright conversion and united with the M. E. church at that time, and ever after holding to its loving precepts and doctrines. He possessed a bright, sunny disposition, which the ravages of disease did not destroy.

In 1881 he was united in marriage to Lizzie Newhall, livng for 32 years in the sunshine of this strong, abiding love. A few days ago he came from his home at Humansville, Mo., to visit his son in this city. He was taken suddenly and seriously ill and although everything that human hands could do, was done, yet medical aid and loving care could not withstand the progress of the Grim Reaper.

Death came so like a gentle slumber, that sweet repose that knows no awakening till the resurrection morn. Funeral services were held at the home of the son, Mr. T. B. Redman, Thursday afternoon, conducted by Rev. J. H. Sutton and the remains were laid to rest in Moline cemetery.

We desire to express our heartfelt thanks to the many kind people of Moline who gave us help and showed us sympathy in our be reavement of our husband and father. we assure you tnat your many kind acts will not be forgotten by us.
MRS. LIZZIE REDMAN.
T. B. REDMAN.
