He came to this county in 1831, where he has lived up to the time of his death. He entered upon a tract of land in Richfield Township when he first came to the county, and has lived on the same farm ever since. He was visiting a neighbor at the time of his death and had started for home; while getting into his buggy he fell backward dead. Although he had been crippled for a number of years, yet he was stout and hearty and always seemed cheerful. He was a member of the M.E.

Linthicum, Ida B., aged 43, died June 8, at 314 North Eighth street.
Quincy Daily Journal June 9, 1906 p8 MISS LINTHICUM PASSES AWAY
The death of Miss Ida B. Linthicum, aged 43 years, occurred at the home of her mother, Mrs. H. A. Campbell, 314 North Eighth street, yesterday afternoon, at 2 o’clock, of heart trouble, from which she had been suffering for the past ten years. Miss Linthicum was the youngest daughter of the late John D. Linthicum, of the 118th Illinois Volunteer Infantry. She was born in Stone’s Prairie, March 6, 1863, where she resided until thirteen years of age, when she moved with her family to this city, which has since been her home. Her father preceded her in death some time ago. The mother, who is now Mrs. H. A. Campbell, survives, as do also two sisters and one brother. The former are, Mrs. E. R. Crum, of Chicago, and Mrs. J. H. Larimer, of Fort Scott. The brother is J. C. Linthicum, of Evarts, South Dakota.
Miss Ida, being afflicted from birth entwined herself more fully in the hearts of her friends than even her sweet, gentle nature could perhaps otherwise have done. Her entire life was one of loving devotion, sweetly patient under all afflictions, with a smile and a word of good cheer for each and every one. When strength permitted, her place in the Epworth League was always cheerfully filled.
Funeral services will be held at her mother’s residence, 314 North Eighth street at 2:30 p.m.
Interment at Greenmount cemetery.
