      DEATH OF A. R. DUFF OCCURRED SATURDAY

      Pioneer Resident Had Lived in Madison County Since 1857

      The fading ranks of Madison county's pioneer settlers lost another member last Saturday in the death of Albert R. Duff of Winterset. His death occurred at the home of his son, Thornton Duff. He was 86 years of age.

      Mr. Duff was one of Madison county's oldest and most respected citizens, having lived here since 1857.

      He was a native of Ohio, where he was born on Feb. 26, 1854, in Gurnsey county, the son of Arthur and Eliza Duff. When he was three years old he came with his parents to this county, and they settled on a farm north of Winterset, where he spent most of his life. Recently he had lived in Winterset, and served the community as city assessor for many years.

      He was married on July 11, 1888, to Anna Cox. They were the parents of one son, Thornton L. Duff.

      At an early age he became a member of the United Presbyterian church, and throughout his life was an influential member.

      He is survived by his son; a brother, James M. Duff of Adel; and one granddaughter.

      Funeral services were held Monday from the United Presbyterian church in charge of the Rev. C. E. Courtney, and burial was made in the McDonald cemetery.
