The living are: Mrs. Frances Cover, Walnut, Kansas; Mrs. Jennie Weeden and Mrs. Belle Keeting, Florence, Arizona; Mrs. Alice Leatherman and Mrs. Anne Richie, Pittsburg, Kansas; Mrs. Lucy Vaughn, La Harpe, Kansas; Miss Bertha Dunlap, Walnut, Kansas; Oren Dunlap, Englevale, Kansas; Wm. Dunlap, Pueblo, Colorado. The family moved from Pennsylvania to Iowa in the spring of 1856, and in the fall of 1869 came to Kansas and settled on the farm now owned by Mr. Joe Wampler.  Later Mr. Dunlap bought the farm where they now live. She died at the family home Monday, January 5th, 1903, after an illness of only about one week. The funeral services were held at the M. E. Church Tuesday afternoon at 1 0’clock, conducted by Rev. J. M. Johnson and Rev. P. B. Knepp. A large audience assembled to pay their last tribute of respect to a devoted wife, a loving mother, a kind neighbor, and a faithful Christian woman. Her mortal remains were laid to rest in Glenwood cemetery. She was converted at a Methodist revival meeting at Salina, Iowa about 44 years ago. Eighteen years ago she  joined the United Brethren church, and at the time of her death was a member of the society of the Valley Church, Neosho County. Death came to her at the dawn of the day. The shades of night had passed away. The golden rays of the morning sun were streaming in at the window when she turned her face toward the Rescue City. The faithful companions of her youth and part her loving children were at her bedside. Her feet went down into the cold stream and her soul passed over on the other side. Quietly and calmly she gave up her life on earth to live again in that beautiful land beyond the stars. No night of sorrow and no pain of death ever enters there. They build no coffins, dig no graves, preach no funerals and sing no requiems. The glad songs of praise go up, and the perennial fountains flow on forever. It is the home of those who have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Advanced in years, beloved by her husband and children and respected by her neighbors and friends she has been gathered home. The breaking up of the home where father and mother lived, and toiled so many years is one of the sad things in life. Days of happiness cluster around that old hearthstone. Too soon they are numbered with the years of long ago. Those familiar scenes with father and mother in the old home are things of the past. There is one vacant chair; it is mother’s.

CARD of THANKS

We feel grateful to the neighbors and friends for their kind assistance during the sickness and death of wife and mother. The L. C. Dunlap and Family

149. Miller Abram Hamler

Surname : Hamler Given name : Miller Abram  Source : newspaper clipping obituary

Limestone, May 28. - When a man of sunny disposition, kind of heart, accommodating as a neighbor, esteemed in his citizenship, considerate in all his dealing, friendly in every relation of life, his word ever as good as his bond, departs from among us even for a better world, his passing is keenly felt far beyond the confines and circles of his immediate family, his death means personal loss to his fellow citizens. The late Miller Abram Hamler, of Limestone township, was that type of man, and Monday afternoon his mortal remains were laid to rest in Frogtown cemetery was a semi-holiday among our country folks. Mr. Hamler was a native of Limestone Township, he had lived in this valley his entire life, his genial manner and happy disposition were proverbial. He radiated good cheer in his house, in the community and in the Kingsville Methodist church. He served his township faithfully and efficiently in offices of public trust, and in matters pertaining to his township his state and county took an active part. He died at the age of 66 years and Limestone Township that will know Miller Hamler no more mourns his passing. The deceased was born in Limestone Township and died May 23, 1924 at the age of 66 years, 5 mos. He was a son of William and Martha Hamler, of sacred memory and pioneer residents of Clarion County. He married Elizabeth Jane Stahlman, thirteen children being born to this union. All living with the exception of one son, William, who was called Home September 5, 1920. The children surviving are: Mrs. John McMahon, Limestone, Mrs. James Pyle, New Bethlehem; Mrs. John Kirby, Chicago, Mrs. James McLaughlin, Summersville, Mrs. Jacob Clinger, Limestone, Quincy, Andrew, Elmer, John at home, George of Frogtown. Last March 19,1924, he married Mrs. Clara (Stahlman) Shoemaker, of Porter township who survives. Also by 19 grandchildren, three brothers and two sisters: Thomas and Vene Hamler, Llewellyn, Nebraska, McGruder Hamler, Corsica, Pa., Mrs. Myrtle Parker, Fairfield, Neb.; Mrs. James Snyder, Orville, Ohio. One sister entered the peaceful valley years ago, Adda Williamson, Humansville, O. The funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the Frogtown church, Rev. Parsons, of Kingsville M. E. Church officiating. Interment followed in the cemetery adjoining. One of the old settlers, who in the early days of farming toiled, slaved and whenever saved. He feared God and loved his neighbors, a fine specimen of christian manhood, he was respected by all who knew him. To his wife and children is extended our sincere sympathy. May God give the promise grace and strength. We are reminded there is "but a step between us and death." – John James

150. Simon Jeremiah Stahlman  1855 - 1923    Posted by Eric Swab April 19, 2005

Simon Jeremiah Stahlman died at the Brookville Hospital at 9:12 o'clock in the evening of Monday of last week, July 16, as a result of injuries received at his farm in Warsaw Township on Tuesday afternoon, July 10. Mr. Stahlman was the son of Bennewell and Elizabeth (Shaffer) Stahlman and was born on the homestead in Warsaw Township on June 4, 1855; he spent his entire life where he was born. On June 29, 1882, he was married to Miss Alice F, a daughter of Edwin Bullers, the ceremony being performed at the bride's home by Rev Mr. Wonders. Mrs. Stahlman survives her husband with all of their three children; Bertha, wife of John King of Kingsville; Calvin C., of Rose Twp., and Lincoln, deputy state apiarary adviser for Jefferson and Indiana Counties, living at home. Eleven grandchildren also survive Mr. Stahlman. Two of Mr. Stahlman's brothers - Jackson W. and John Parker, both of Warsaw Township preceded him in death; the following brother and sisters survive him; William of Pittsburgh; Lucy, widow of James Carrier, Warsaw Twp.; Mary, wife of George R. Ballentine, Rose Twp.; Mrs Kate Moons, Monogahela City, and Mrs. Racheal Chambers, Ellwood City. Mr. Stahlman was a member of the Hazen Presbyterian Church, presiding elder for 25 yrs, superintendent of the Sunday School, member of the Hazen Lodge No. 448, P. O. S. of A. and the Kirkman Grange. His funeral services were conducted in the Hazen Church last Thursday afternoon by Rev. Newcome assisted by Rev. D. E. Hepler, of Clarion, and Rev. O. L. Winger, of Hazen. Mr. Stahlman's standing in the community was attested by the attendance at the funeral which was one of the largest ever known in this region for a private citizen. The oral tributes were unusually numerous, the donors including the O. of A., Cook and Helscel, the Presbyterian Sunday School and Mr. and Mrs. D. L. Taylor; one wreath bore the initials "KKK". Interment was made in Temple Cemetery. The accident which resulted in Mr. Stahlman's death occurred while he was hauling timber for a gas rig for Cook & Helscel. Just as Mr. Stahlman's team emerged from his private lane to the main road, the binding of the load became loose. Mr Stahlman was riding on top and was pitched off and the natural jerking of the lines frightened his team. Mr. Stahlman struck the ground heavily on his side and right shoulder; a wheel ran over his right leg and broke it, and he also received internal injuries in the abdomen. Mr. Stahlman was among the most prominent residents of Warsaw Township and was identified with progressive movements in agriculture, and other lines wherever they would help to promote the interests of the community at large. He was a lumberman and raftsman on the North Fork years ago, later becoming a farmer. He served as president of the Jefferson County Farm Bureau ever since it was organized half-a-dozen years ago. He was intensely interested in improving farming conditions and especially in thorobred stock; personally he raised Holstein cattle and was probably Jefferson County's most ardent champion of the black and whites. He was a director of the Jefferson Agricultural Association for several years, active in staging the annual Brookville Fair, which always contained results of his own skilled farming, as well as specimens of what his friends and neighbors could do. Mr. Stahlman was deeply interested in the progress of the Hazen community and always ready to do his share of whatever would best promote the interests of his home neighborhood. His church and Sunday school work was not confined to his home church but extended to similar activities in and beyond the county. Politically Mr. Stahlman was a Republican but politics did not appeal to him and the only office he ever held was that of school director for nine years, from 1904 to 1913, which he filled with the fidelity which characterized whatever he undertook.

195. Richard E. Royer March 19, 2006 from Terry Haas

RICHARD EUGENE ROYER Born  05 February 1923.
Died 11 September 1943.  U.S. Army, rank of Sergeant died in the Line of Duty, Non Battle (DNB) (War Dept. Files).  His plane was lost with all hands and I don't believe the bodies were ever recovered.  They were still in training at the time, he as a gunner, and this happened off-shore of Texas. 

I've been going through more papers and found a postcard Richard Eugene Royer sent his mother, Ora Belle Stahlman Royer (John Heenen, John L., John S., John). The Postcard is titled "Harlingen Army Gunnery School, Harlingen Texas", and reads:  "In the Lower Rio Grande Valley, aerial gunners are trained as key men in a famous "Four Flying Horsemen" team--pilot, navigator, bombardier and gunner.  They receive their silver air crew wings on graduation." It was sent by PVT. Richard Royer, 3rd Training Sqd, Harlingen, Texas, postmarked Harlingen April 2, 1943. He wrote:

"Dear Mom:  Maybe this will give you an idea of what I'm doing here in Texas. The first picture at the top left shows a gunner in the air ready for action. Top right shows them after a flight bringing their guns from the plane.  Left lower shows planes in formation. Lower right - firing at night with tracer bullets. This is all interesting and maybe some day we'll take care of some Japs this way.      Your son "Dick"

It makes me sad every time I see his photos because he was such a young man, as were many then.
