S1 Obituary:  "Mr. John Whetstone.." - Defiance Democrat, Defiance, Defiance County, Ohio, 5 Nov 1903. Acc001682.

Extract: Mr. John Whetstone was born in Crawford county, Ohio, in 1822 where he lived with his parents until manhood when in 1844 he was married to Hanna Heckart, 14 children blessed this union of which three have passed to their reward. Mrs. Whetstone died August 11, 1880. Afterward he married Louisa Allen who died February 19, 1899. Mr. Whetstone came to Williams County at a very early date and proved himself a hard working, honest and kind hearted man and was always ready to lend a helping hand to his neighbors and friends. Several years ago he purchased a farm which he made his home until his death. He had been a sufferer for many years but bore his aches and pains with patience, departing this life October 30, 1903, aged 81 years, leaving 11 daughters who were who were all present except 3, 76 grand children, and 30 great grand children to mourn their loss. The funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at the German Reform church conducted by the pastor of that church, the remains were laid to rest in the Benner cemetery.
Card of thanks.
We take this method of thanking their neighbors and friends who so kindly assisted us during the sickness and burial of our father, also to those contributing the beautiful flowers and to the choir.
E.E. Slusser and Wife  [Elmer E. Schlosser and wife]
