  • Obituary*: "Funeral Services for W. C. DeLashmutt
       "Prominent Pioneer Citizen of Mills County Passed Away Oct. 14
       "William Clay DeLashmutt, a member of one of Mills county’s most prominent pioneer families and one of Glenwood’s dearly respected citizens, passed away at his home on North Vine street in the early morning hours of Oct. 14 at the age of eighty-six years. While Mr. DeLashmutt had been in failing health for some time, his death came as a shock to his many friends.
       "During the intense heat of the summer, his condition became critical, but with the coming of the cooler weather, his old time vigor had apparently returned, but on Saturday of last week he suffered a stroke from which he never rallied.
       "Mr. DeLashmutt ever took an active interest in the public life of the community, having served many years as a member of the county board and later for several successive terms he served as one of the county’s most outstanding sheriffs. And had retained an intense interest in all political and public activities throughout his advanced years.
       "He is survived by his wife and one son, Ernest DeLashmutt, of Omaha, and two daughters, Mrs. Jessie Stone of Phoenix, Ariz., and Mrs. C. E. Dean of this city.
       "Funeral services were held this, Thursday, afternoon from the home with Rev. J. F. Stille, pastor of the West Oak Baptist church, in charge."22
  • Note*: • "Like the Bartletts from whom he descended, the DeLashmutts were French Huguenots, his forefathers having settled in Maryland at an early date." Clay and Sarah moved to a farm near Bartlett, Iowa and, after living there several years, moved to Old Pacific, Iowa.
    • He settled in Montana in 1864 and while there engaged in buying and selling cattle for about a year. He then had a freighting operation in 1865-1867. After his marriage to Sarah Gillilland he was a farmer and stock raiser in Mills County, Iowa.
    • In 1887 he was elected the sheriff of the county and served in that capacity for four years. In 1894 he was elected a member of the board of county commissioners and was made its chairman; he retired from office in January 1901.23,24

Jesse Van DeLashmutt

M, ID# 10359, b. 28 September 1863, d. 15 March 1948
  • Obituary*: "J. V. DELASHMUTT
       "Obituary
       "Mr. Jesse Van DeLashmutt, youngest son of Esther Hunt and Peter Lindsay DeLashmutt, was born on a farm south of Pacific Junction, Iowa September 28, 1863, and passed peacefully into the Great Beyond at Burwell, Nebraska, Monday, March 15, 1948.
       "He grew to manhood on his parents’ farm and received his education in the Mills County schools. He shared with his family the experiences of the early settlers. Years later he loved to relate to the next generation and their families they many trips of his father and oldest brother, Clay, who with their yokes of oxen pushed on west freighting supplies to the settlers following the Gold Rush days of ‘49.
       "Jesse was married to Elizabeth Chezek [sic] in Glenwood, Iowa on March 9, 1882. They established their first home on the farm adjoining his parents’ farm. Here they resided for twenty-four years and it was in this home that their eight children were born. Their eldest daughter, Pearl, died in infancy.
       "Just before the Northwestern railroad was built through Cherry County, Mr. DeLashmutt took a claim south of Valentine, which later became a part of the Will Ballard ranch.
       "In the fall of 1906 Mr. DeLashmutt and his elder son, Clay, came to Loup County. He purchased the ranch that is now the Wallace river ranch fifteen miles northwest of Burwell. His wife and children soon joined him in the new home. He owned and operated this ranch for about twenty years and during this time was one of the largest stock raisers and shippers in this section of the state. He helped organize the annual Kinkaid picnic which later developed into Nebraska’s Big Rodeo. Many of the bucking horses used in the early years of the Rodeo came from the DeLashmutt ranch.
       "A home was always maintained in Burwell that his children might have the advantages of the public schools. When he retired he and his faithful wife took up their permanent residence in Burwell. Down through the years the latch string was always out and the hospitality of this worthy couple was enjoyed by a large circle of friends.
       "Mr. and Mrs. DeLashmutt were privileged to enjoy together two very special occasions, their Golden Wedding anniversary and also their sixtieth wedding anniversary.
       "The greatest loss of his life came in the passing of his devoted wife on January 18, 1943. She continued to be his ideal to the end, and the happy memories of his loved one gave him the courage to carry on alone.
       "He resided in his own home until stricken with pneumonia and was taken to the Burwell hospital on December 17, 1947. Here he was tenderly cared for until his passing.
       "'J. V.' as he was known to his host of friends and acquaintances, was especially fond of children and the youth of the community. He was proud of Burwell, the accomplishments of its citizens, and was always interested in its progress and civic improvements. His friends remember him as a most generous and a most tolerant man.
       "J. V. is the last of a family of six brothers and two sisters, seven of whom, each lived more than eighty years.
       "He is survived by two sons and five daughters: Clay E. of Sidney, Nebr., Mrs. Grace Martin, Omaha, Mrs. Esther (A. J.) Meyer, Burwell, Mrs. Lucile (Q) Matthews, Aurora, Nebr., Paul, Los Angeles, Calif., Mrs. Gladis (H. S.) Brown, Phoenix, Arizona, and Mrs. Genevieve (Fred) Schnabel, San Diego, Calif., also seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
       "Funeral services were held at two o’clock Thursday afternoon, March 18, at the Congregational Church, Burwell, with the Rev. J. Chris Nyrop officiating. The organ prelude and postlude were played by Mrs. Dwight Johnson. The quartet composed of Frank Wagner, Gerald Bishop, Billy Beat and L. J. Garrison, sang 'Beautiful Isle of Somewhere' and 'The Old Rugged Cross', with Mrs. Johnson at the organ. There were many beautiful flowers, mute evidence of the love and esteem of sorrowing friends. The pallbearers were Kenneth Peterson, Chester Petersen, Paul Banks, Richard Banks, Trevor Brandenburg and Wayne Jarvis. Interment was made in the Burwell cemetery.
       "Relatives from a distance who attended the service were: Mrs. Grace Martin, Omaha; Mr. and Mrs. Clay DeLashmutt and Joan, Sidney, Neb; Mr. Bernard DeLashmutt, Chappell; Mr. and Mrs. Q. Matthews, Aurora; Mr. Ernest DeLashmutt, Pacific Junction, Iowa; Mr. Wesley DeLashmutt, Omaha, Mr. Ernest DeLashmutt and Mrs. Dudley DeLashmutt, Onawa, Iowa; Mr. and Mrs. Keith DeLashmutt, Elgin; and Mr. Leslie, Lincoln."15
  • Note*: He had seven children and farmed in Burwell, Nebraska.16

    "Dr. Hugh Sloan, aged [blurred] years, dean of Navarro county physicians, died at his home in Rice Monday night.
    Funeral services will be held from the Haynie Memorial Methodist church in Rice Wednesday afternoon at 2 o’clock with interment in the Rice cemetery. The rites will be conducted by Rev. Marvin Bledsoe, assisted by Rev. Walls of Rice.
       "A native of Alabama, Dr. Sloan had practiced medicine in Rice for 60 years. He was well-known in the northern section of Navarro county and southern Ellis county where he had served as physician.
       "Surviving are his wife of Rice; a son, John Sloan, Dallas; a grand-daughter, Joan Sloan, Dallas; a sister, Mrs. Kate Molder, Corsicana; a brother, John F. Sloan, San Antonio, and several nieces and nephews.

       "Honorary pallbearers will be friends of the family.
       "McCammon Funeral Home will direct."
    • "Dr. Hugh Sloan, Doctor Rice Community, Died Mon. Night at 88 Years
       "Dr. Hugh Sloan, one of the Rice community’s most esteemed and useful citizens, who had been practicing medicine in that community since 1884, died at his home in Rice at 11:45 Monday night. He had been in ill health for the past three years. He was 88 years old.
       "Funeral services will be held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o’clock at the Haynie Memorial Methodist Church in Rice.
       "Known as the old country doctor he was the only remaining doctor in the community and had continued an active practice until his health prevented it a few years ago.
       "Dr Sloan was one of the most unique characters who ever lived at Rice. To him money had no value other than as a means of serving people. Being fortunate enough to have an estate from which he derived his income for the support of himself and family, he was a collector, and it is said that on his books today are accounts that would total well up in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. He did more charity practice than any other physician in this section, many times not only giving his services free, but furnishing the family with money to buy needed medicine.
       "Born in Alabama
       "Dr. Sloan was born in Greenville, Ala., February 2, 1858, but moved with his parents to Ellis County in 1864 and settled near Waxahachie. His father, Hugh Sloan, Sr., was a large plantation owner in Alabama, and fought in the civil war.
       "Dr. Sloan was a graduate of the old Dresden High School of Navarro County and worked his way through the Physicians and Surgeons’ College in St. Louis and received his diploma in 1884. He came to Rice immediately and started his practice.
       "He was married to Miss Jodie Abigale Haynie, a daughter of the John B. Haynie, one of the pioneer citizens and large land owners of Navarro County, in 1887.
       "He is survived by his wife, one son, John Sloan of Rice and a granddaughter, Joan Sloan, who is a junior at SMU.
