WHAPELES DIES AT KEOKUK, WHERE HE LIVED SINCE 1847. Keokuk, July 8.—There is a remark able storj of longevity and some in teresting facts connected with the life of Charles G. Whapeles, who died last week. He was perhaps the oldest man in the city and county, if not in the state of Iowa. The birth of Mr. Whapeles was a novel event. His parents who were natives of France started for America aboard ship and he was born on the broad Atlantic ocean during that trip. It was away back yonder in the past, even before the Second War for Independence with England, generally known as the war of 1812, that this interesting birth took place in bleak December, on Christmas Day, 1810, on the stormy ocean and at the time of his death Charles G. Whapeles was one hundred and one years, six months and eleven days old. SIDNEY CO. f.^ •p* 1 111 East Main St, Ottumwa Announce the Greatest Clearing Sale of WOMEN'S IS S E S A N CHILDREN'S Wearing Apparel ever held in Ottumwa, to start Wednesday, JULY 10th SIDNEY CO. 111 East Main St. '4 Tlr wi'i* jifiitti He was a stone mason by occupa tion and much of the stone work about the city and especially in the cemeter ies was done by him. When the par ents arrived in the United States they settled first in New York state, at Buffalo. Later he came west where he located first either at Keokuk or Quincy, as he is known to have lived at both places. It is thought, how ever, that he finally settled in Keokuk, about the year 1847 where he has con tinued to live since. He was maf£4ed twice, his second wife dying mdfty years ago when the only living child, a man past middle age, was but three days old. There are not many survivors of the family. One son, Charles W. Wha-, peles, is the only surviving member of the immediate family of the deceased. The son, as an incident verifying! the age of his father, said that at the breaking out of the civil war in 1861 his father was considered as too old to enlist. The remains will be taken to Pon toosuc, 111.,-for burial. The son-at one time lived there and has a large family lot, and it is to carry out the express wish of the father that he will rest in this quiet spot. He often said that he had done so much stone work in the Keokuk cemeteries that he did not wish to be buried in any C|f them. Ipsa&k*'
