JONATHAN HUNTOON DEAD
lie was One of Rock Island County 's
His Knd was Sudden and Kntlrely I n
expected Sketch of His
Bony Lire In the
The death of Jonathan Huntoon at his
home in Moline Tuesday evening, re
moves one of the oldest settlers of Rock
Island county, and one of the earliest
white men to locate in this community.
Mr. Huntoon's death was very sudden
and entirely unexpected . It was caused
by rheumatism of the heart. During the
day he was in unusually good spirits and
was about the town during the forenoon,
and in the bfternoon drove to Riverside
cemetery on business connected with the
board, of which he was a member. At
the supper table he laughed and -joked
with the family, apparently in perfect
health. In the evening he had a busi
ness caller, and after be had gone Mr.
Huntoon made a memorandum of the
business transacted. He then took up
h's violin and played a few pieces, after
which his daughter-in-law read some ar
ticles from an evening paper at his re
quest. While she was reading, she heard
him gasp, but before she could reach him
he was dead, nis son, Frederick, was in
the room and caught him just as he died.
The death coming so suddenly makes the
blow especially heavy on the bereaved
He was one of the oldest resident settlers
in the county. He was born at Hanover
Grarton county. ,Xew Hampshire, on
Nov. 18, 1815, and was the son of John
and Rebecca (Calel) Huntoon. He was
brought up on a farm, and pu sued that
calliDg until 1837, when he emigrate .1 to
Illinois and settled at Andover, Henry
county, where he joined his brother,
Nathaniel who was operating a flour mill
for the "Andover Colony." He was in
duced to engage in the business and thus
learned the miller's trade. This was the
first mill in northern Illinois, and people
came from a great distance, some
t'.mes a hundred miles or more to
have their grists ground. ' In this
way Mr. Huutt on became acquainted
with people throughout the northern por
tion of the state, and even beyond the
Mississippi, and learnt d many important
facts regarding the country. While thus
engaged he made the acquaintance of
Messrs. Spencer and t-ears, of Moline,
who induce i him to cenie to that place
and take charge of a mill they were about
to start, situated on the ground now oc
cupied by the Moline Flow company's
baiidtng. He consequently came to this
county in February, 1842, and set up
and operated the first grist mill in this
The mill was soon succeeded by one
erected by the ssme parties and which
contained four run of stones. Mr. Hun
toon hhtl charge of the new mill also and
was employed in the two about eight
years, and three years in the manufacture
of what was called the "Grapevine Grain
In 1858 he became associated with
Messrs. D. 1$. Scars, Timothy Wood ana
George Stephens in the manufacture of
lumber atd furniture on the north side of
the island. They continued the business
until the Island of Rock Island was ap
propriated by the government as a mili
tary reservation. About 1877 he became

Street Railway company s line, now of ttie
Chicago syndicates lines, and in
July, 1884, was elected president.
Mr. Huntoon formed a matrimonial
alliance in Hanna township, Henry county
with Miss Mary Paddleford, daughter of
William Paddleford. She was born at
Enfield, New Hampshire, April 9, 1S20
The issue of their union was five children,
three of whom are living, namely: Mrs.
Hannah C Irwin Los Qatos, Cal. ; Sarah E.
wife of R. W.Hodgson, of Newton, Kas. ;
and James F., who married Elizabeth Jam
ieson and until recently resided in Henry
countv, but now lives at the family resis
dence in Moline.
Mr. Huntoon, as the above record indi-,
cates. was among the very first white set
tlers in this p rt of the state. He built
the first frame house in Hanna township,
Henry county, near where Green River
Station now is. He built the third house
in Moline. The deceased was one of the
founders of the First Congregational
church, of Moline, and for a time the
meetings were held at his residence pre
vious to the erection of the original house
Mr. Huntoon had been a republican
since the organization of the party and
cast his first republican vote for the path
finder, John C. Fremont. While not an
aspirant for poli ical honors, he has served
in the capacity of supervisor and assessor
for a number of terms. For many years
he has been a member of the Riverside
Cemetery bosrd, and his demise creates
a vacancy ip that body.
The funeral occurred in Moline at 4
oclock this afternoon.
William Custer died suddenly at the
home of his son, H. P.Custer, 547 Nine
teenth street, at 9 o'clock this morning
aged 85 years . The venerable gentleman
had partaken of a hearty breakfast earlier
in the morning and to all appearances
was as well as usual. He had been s-i t -ting
on a porch reading a paper when
other members of the family heard a noise
and going out found he hsd faden from
his seat. He was picked up and taken
into the house and every effort made to
revive him, but he only lived about 15
minutes. He was born in Montgomery
county, Pennsylvania, and came west to
gether with his wife and settled at Ke-
wance, 111., where they resided for a num
ber of years, coming here to reside with
their son about two years ago, Mrs. Cus
ter dying tot long after their arrival here.
Two children survive him: H. P. Custer,
with whom he resided, and William A, of
Umatilla. Fla. Mr. Custer was a man of
excellent qualities and enjoyed the high
est respect of all with whom he was
acquainted. His death is supposed to be
the result of heart trouble.
The funeral will occur from the home
of his son on Nineteenth street Saturday
morning at 10 o'clock.
At the residence of her daughter, Mrs.
A. C. Campbell, 1913 Sixth avenue, at 4
o'clock yesterday afternoon, occurred the
death of Mrs. Hannah Ntvins, of old age,
in her 87th yer. Deceased was born at
Danville, Pa., and was married to John
Nevins in 1834, coming west with her
husband and settling at. Keithsburg, 111.,
in 1837, where Mr. Nevins died in 1875.
Ten children were born to the union,
onlv three of whom survive their mother.
They are W. F. Ne vins, of Burlington,
la., F. W. Neyins, of Fort Madison, la.,
and Mrs. A. C. Campbell, of this city,
with whom Mrs. Nevens has made her
home for the past five years. She was a
life long member of the Methodist church
and her gentle disposition had endeared
her to all with whom she was associated.
The remains will be taken to Keiths
burg over the C. B. & Q tomorrow
morning for interment.
Must Have S1.700 Mori-.
The improvements necessary to com
plete the Rock Island Y. M. O. A. build
ing are still held in abeyance for the lack
of $1700, the only portion of the I18.0J0
which the association ttarted out to se
cure, not yet subscribed. While the com
mittees in charge of the subscription met
with great encouragement in their can
vass, the fuads stated must be forthcom
ing in order to Dind what they did secure,
as all were made conditional on the se
curing of 18.000 . It would be a great
misfortune if all that hasbeen pledged thus
conditionally were lost because of the lack
of only a tenth part of the amount neces
sary. A great many associations through
out the country have have been the for
tunate recipients of bequests and legacies
the past year and it begins to look as if
the completion of the Rock Island build

good luck. The Philadelphia association

How Man Martens Jltt Her leih, as
Told by the Muscatine Papers.
The Muscatine Journal in its descrip
tion of the sad fate of Miss Mary Martens
of this city, near Montpelier Tuesday
The accident happened near the bridge
which spans what is known as Fimple's
creek. The wagon bridge which crosses
the creek is but a few feet from the rail
road Dridge, and between it and the
river. The woman, as near as can be
learned, was walkiDg on the track, and
in response to the werning whistle, got
off to one side. The back water from the
river has spread up under the railroad
bridge and filled the cut on either side of
the tracks so that there was but little
room between the track and water. She
evidently became scared and thought she
would find more room on tte other side
of the track. She was within a few feet
of the bridge at the time, and as she
started to crosR the track the engine
struck her, tossing her into the water be
tween the two bridges.
The train stopped at once and backed
down and George Brogan, who liyes close
at hand, came over with a rake with
which he managed to reach her and pull
her to the shore. Mr. and Mrs. Brogan
who witnessed the accident, were called
upon to identify the unfortunate, but
could not. The boly was taken to Fair
port, but no one recogniz-d her and she
was sent back to Muscatine and taken to
Day's undertaking establishment for care.
The only injuries found on her are a cut
on the left arm and one on the side of the
head and a bruise on her right thigh. It
is supposed that she was rendered in
sensible and drowned before reached.
She was dressed in a black sateen
skirt, black and white checked waist
and wore a broad -brimmed straw hat,
trimmed with a pink ribbon. She was
about five feet three inches in height,
dark hair and quite plump. In a pack-
ace she carried was a roll of black and
white dotted calico, which had been
partly cut. A hair crimper was also in
the package. Clutched in her hand was
a handkerchief with a string of gold
beads tied up in it. A small ornament
on the chain contained a head of the
Blessed Virgin on one side and "I. H. S."
on the other.
The News-Tribune says, "the girl came
to Muscatine two weeks ago and through
Justice Rowan's intelligence bureau se
cured a position as nurse at the county in
flrmary. She entered upon herdutiesa
week ago last Thursday, but not finding
them agreeable, left the following Sunday
to work at Charles Lsindecker's, where
she quit on Monday. Mis Martens visited
Justice Rowan's office yesterday morning
and informed him that she had
quit out there and announced her in
tention of going back to Rock Island,
wucre utr mower and several young
brothers and sisters live. Constable
Frutig, who was in the justice's ofuVe
at the time of her visit, says she did nut
converse freely and seemed troubled and
depressed, Not being burdened with a
surplus of money she doubtless decided
to walk home, and her mind evidently
being preoccupied with her trouble, she
no doubt did not noticj the train back of
her until too late forescaps."

the gir! was buried in that city.
