DEATH SUMMONS R. O. JOSLYN SUNDAY NOON AFTER A LONG ILLNESS

The deceased was born at Waitsfield, Vermont, September 21, 1842. When a young man he enlisted with Company I, 15th Vermont Infantry, and fought In the Civil War, taking part in the battle of Gettysburg. In 1875 he was married to Mrs. Abbie M. Phillips at Mt. Pleasant, Miller county, Mo. In 1891 he moved to Loveland, returning to Missouri within a few months and coming back to Loveland on January 18, 1892. Since that date, Mr. and Mrs. Joslyn have made their home in this city and for the past eighteen years have lived happily at 733 North Jefferson.

Mr. Joslyn is survived by his widow and only child, a son, Dr. S. A. Joslyn of this city. Many are the friends who have known and loved him and will reverence his memory a that of a kindly old gentleman whom they have been proud to know. The sincere sympathy of all is extended to the bereaved family.
