The body of William Mitchell, a former resident, was brought to Savannah and placed in the cemetery Monday afternoon from his home at Anardarko, Okla.
William Mitchell was born in Morgan county, Indiana, May 31, 1845, and died at his home in Anardarko, Okla., March 16, 1923, aged 77 years, 10 months and 15 days.
He was a Civil War veteran belonging to Co. E, 12th Indiana regiment, giving to his beloved country three years of service. He united with the Methodist church in the early sixties and has since that time been constantly affiliated with the protestant churches.
Mr. Mitchell came to Missouri in the spring of 1869 and the following year was married to Miss Sophia Sells. The union was blessed with three sons and two daughters, four of whom survive father and mother.
After the loss of his devoted wife, March 12, 1901, he went to Apache, Oklahoma, January 1, 1906, where he was married to Mrs. Ermina Tobin of Apache. One daughter, Ethel Rogene, was added to this happy union.
After the death of this beloved companion four years ago, Mr. Mitchell has been living in Anardarko with his daughter Ethel Roger and his niece, Mrs. Alice Kennebrew.
He became a loyal member of the I. O. O. F. lodge about 31 years ago and held true to his vows to the end of his life. The funeral was held at the Methodist church in Anardarko, March 18.
