ANOTHER OLD SETTLER GONE
Moscow, Iowa, Feb. 13, 1899.
Hannah Dillon died on Feb. 8th, aged 75 years, 7 months and 24 days. Hannah Wilson was born in Warren county, Indiana, June 14th, 1823. She came to Iowa in 1838, with her parents and settled in Muscatine county, near Moscow. She was united in marriage with Daniel Henderson, July 22d, 1841. They then moved to Cedar county. There was born to Mr. and Mrs. Henderson nine children, six daughters and four sons, six of whom are still living---Mrs. Hattie Pope of Stuart, Iowa; D.W. Henderson of Tipton, Iowa; S.J. Henderson of Muscatine, Iowa; Mrs. Alice Williams of Cedar county, Iowa; John Henderson of Tipton, Iowa; Mrs. Ida Hirschman of Wilder, Minnesota. Her husband, Daniel Henderson, departed this life February 16, 1887. Several years after, she married Mr. House, and moved to Olin, Iowa. About four years after, Mr. House died and she was again left a widow with Its troubles and on March 16th, 1895, she married G.A. Dillon, who with her children and many friends mourn their loss, but her gain.
In 1849 or 1850, she with her husband, Daniel Henderson, joined the Christian church at Moscow. They were two of the pillars of that church until death. Well, I remember of hearing Mrs. Henderson shout "Glory to God" year after year since I was a boy and expect to hear her shout in heaven when I get there.
The funeral services were held at her residence in Moscow. Mrs. Sutliff, the evangelist, of Cedar Rapids, officiated with one of her soul-stirring sermons, which brought many tears to our eyes. Her text was taken from Isaiah 33:24, "And the inhabitants shall not say I am sick." The discourse was delivered with much feeling and made all feel glad they were there.
Mrs. Dillon was laid by the side of Daniel Henderson in the Moscow cemetery.
Moscow, Iowa, Feb. 18---The remains of Mrs. Hannah Dillon were laid to rest in the Moscow cemetery by the side of her first husband, Dan Henderson, last Thursday noon. The last sad service was conducted by Mrs. Sutliff, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Sunday at 11 o'clock Rev. H.R. Osborne preached the funeral sermon over the remains of Mrs. Catharine Slater, at the M.E. church, and they were buried at the Rochester graveyard.
Both of the above were old settlers of Cedar county, Iowa. The former coming in 1842 and the latter in 1837. Both lost their husbands some twelve years ago and the time between their deaths was only nine days. Both reared a large family. They were neighbors for many years and will be missed by many sorrowing friends.
