The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, March 8, 1906

MR. EUGENE W. LEAMON was born near Zanesville, Muskingum County, Ohio, October 22, 1832, and died at his home near Russell, Iowa, on February 28, 1906, aged 73 years, 4 months and 6 days. When a boy he removed with his parents to Des Moines County, Iowa; and in 1863 he located in Lucas County, where he has since resided. He was married on April 12, 1866, to MISS MINERVA J. MCKINLEY. To this union was born one child, MISS ALLIE LEAMON. He united with the Trinity Evangelical Church in Washington Township, in 1882, and remained a faithful member of the same until the time of his death.

He leaves two brothers, MR. JAMES LEAMON, and MR. T.B. LEAMON of Hutchison, Kansas, a wife, one daughter, and many friends to mourn his loss.

In early life he had the trials of the pioneer, and in later years has been a patient uncomplaining sufferer from bodily ailments. A kind father, a loving husband, and a worthy neighbor has gone from our midst. The funeral services were held at the home on March 2nd, conducted by Rev. Chas. Pickford, and were largely attended, and interment was made in the Russell Cemetery.
