Earl B. Slawson returned to Illinois for the express purpose of enlisting, which he did in Company B, 34th Illinois Infantry, in March, 1863. This company became part of the army of Gen. Sherman in the 2d Brigade, 2d Division, 14th Army Corps. His company was engaged at the battle of Lookout Mountain, the siege of Atlanta, Buzzard's Roost and Crab Orchard, and he was in his place with them in that march to the sea, which has become a household word, and lastly, at the grand review at Washington, on the 24th of May, 1865, after which he received an honorable discharge on the 16th of July following. He then returned to Otoe County, Neb., and took up a homestead claim and made it his residence about fifteen years, then went to Palmyra, Neb., and engaged in the grocery business for about twelve months, subsequently engaging in mercantile pursuits at Utica, Neb., for three years. After this he returned to Palmyra, and for two years renewed his old life and occupation. At the close of that period he sold out and returned to his Otoe farm, and in 1884 came to Lancaster County and settled on his present farm, which contains some of the best land in the county, and includes eighty acres, all in an excellent state of cultivation.
August 24, 1862, was a red letter day, for he was then united in wedlock with Cordelia M. Brown, who was the daughter of Vivalda and Aura T. Brown, and was born Dec. 27, 1842. 
SLAWSON, Earl B. (I51188)
Excerpt from "History of Broome County, New York": His father was Nathaniel Slosson, of Berkshire, Mass. He married Julia Ann De Witt, born in Fenton in 1807, married in 1832; she died in 1844. Her father was Abraham De Witt, who was an early settler and died in 1831..... Mr. Slosson is one of the pioneers of Broome county. He was in his younger days in active business, and learned the trade of cloth dresser and carried on the business for eighteen years in the then village of Binghamton, at what was then known as Lewis Mills. Mr. S. retired upon his farm in 1850, where he hwas ever since resided. Mr. S. is a man of strong mind and sound judgment, and is universally respected for his firm adherence of principles he believes to be right. He is now in the possession of allhis faculties and appears to wear the years with as good grace as most men do at sixty or seventy years. Although nearly eight-five years have come and gone, he has lived to see this county grow from a howling wilderness to one of great prosperity, and the now city of Binghamton, containing a population of 20,000 people, has come to such from a small hamlet of which he can well remember. Truly he is one of the early pioneers of old Broome county, and has kept alove the memories of this county during all its changes.

In Loving Memory of Lizzie Sole.

"O death! Where is they sting? O grave! Where is thy victory?"

Lizzie, daughter of Robert and Ruth Sole, died March 26, 1890, aged 17 years, 9 months and 28 days. On Wednesday morning at the break of day, the enemy, Death, entered the home and took from their embrace the dear daughter and sister they loved so well. Pleasant memories of her arise, who has passed beyond the river to the heavenly home possible for us all through Divine redemption. Her friends have the consoling assurance that her life, though so brief, was a very happy one.

Her removal from this world into the spirit world, was sudden, heart failure being the cause. On Tuesday night she and her sister Clara retired as usual. She seemingly was in perfect health. But e'er the sun had risen she was called to go. She was taken away without a moment's warning, in the bloom of youth and beauty. No more shall we hear her mingle her voice in the songs she loved to sing at our Sunday school and church. But she is singing now with the angels, far more beautiful and nobler songs, than these, within the heavenly gates above. At the gate that has been left ajar there is one beckoning the bereaved parents, brothers and sisters to the same happy home, to walk in the beautiful light of God.

Note: Burial was made in the North McDonald cemetery.

Expires While Talking With Friends in Court House
Yard. Was An Early Settler

George Cox, a pioneer of Madison county and well known throughout the county, dropped dead in the court house yard on Monday afternoon while talking to Dr. W. H. Thompson and W. P. Rhyno. He was one of the strongest men in the county, had never been seriously ill and his sudden death was a profound shock to the entire community. A short time prior to his death, someone attempted to lift one of the iron sections of the new flag pole, but could not move it. Cox, who was among the onlookers, took hold of the heavy pipe and raised it without apparent effort. Fifteen minutes later he fell dead and it is thought that the exertion may have caused the rupture of a blood vessel.

Like his father, Eli Cox, he had a great liking for mechanics and tools, and early learned skilled carpenter work from his father. When but 18, he assisted in the operation of his father's sawmill, which was the only one in the North River neighborhood. Both father and son were bridge builders in Madison county, the one erecting a number of the early bridges, the son acting as bridge foreman for the bridge force in 1894 and 1909.

Mr. Cox lived in Union township for many years, but preferred to leave the greater part of the labor of farming to others, while he worked along structural lines and as a contractor. For the past nine years he has lived in Winterset. Besides Mrs. Cox, six children survive.

Amanda A. Farris, daughter of Charles and Mary Jane Farris, was born October 26, 1853 in Union township, Madison county, passing away January 8, 1929, at the age of 75 years, 2 months and 12 days.

At a very early age she was united with a neighborhood Baptist church, which met for services at the old Farris school house. Later there was a Church of Christ organized at Patterson, the Farris family uniting there after the school house organization was discontinued. At the time of her death she was affiliated with the United Presbyterian church of Winterset. She loved to attend church services and was always there when her frail health permitted.

January 14, 1883 she was united in marriage to Alfred Cox, also of Union township, Madison county. To this union was born two daughters, Albia, who is now Mrs. Chas. Breeding, and Vanna, who is now Mrs. E. C. Farlow, both of Winterset. She also leaves six grandchildren. She is survived by three brothers and a sister, C. L. Farris, of Newport, Oregon; A. M. Farris, of Des Moines; F. D. Farris, of Ansley, Nebraska, and Mrs. Lucy Brittain, of Winterset.

Mere words cannot express the love and devotion she bestowed on her home and family. In later years when six grandchildren were added to the family circle, her only fault if it can be so called, was in loving them too much.

This is the first breaking of the family ties. Her husband, children, and grandchildren, are like a ship (unreadable). She was the center of everything and around her the home was built.

Rev. W. C. Porter conducted the funeral services at the home Thursday afternoon and burial was made in the McDonald cemetery.
