E. GILHAM, 89, DIES TUESDAY



ONE OF THE OLDEST AND MOST RESPECTED MEN IN CITY CALLED



WAS VETERAN OF THE CIVIL WAR



“Ezekiel Gilham, 89, one of the oldest and most respected citizens of Hartford City, died at 1 o’clock, Tuesday afternoon, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. Anson Kline, 533 West Kickapoo Street. The infirmities of age, covering an illness of three months duration, during all of which time he had been in a critical condition, caused the aged man’s death.



Mr. Gilham’s life was a most interesting and eventful one. His father, Ezekiel Gilham, was a slave owner of old Virginia. The Hartford City man was born October 12, 1828,of a family of eight children, all of whom have now passed beyond with the exception of one brother, David Gilham, who left home when fifteen years of age, nearly eighty years ago. Until recently, the Hartford City man had never of his brother since. A year or so ago, William Kemp, local man, found trace of David Gilham in the southern part of the state. He had been engaged for years in the circus business. Efforts of Ezekiel Gilham and son, Scott Gilham, of this city, to obtain trace of the missing brother, however, failed.



Ezekiel Gilham was a veteran of the Civil War, fighting on the side of the Union. His wife, whom he had claimed as his mate before the opening of the war, died December 24, 1913. Mr. Gilham had been a resident of the county for twenty-seven years.



Surviving Mr. Gilham are nine children. They are: Mrs. Alice Kern, of Hanna, Ind.; G.H. Gilham of St. Francisville, Ill.; Mrs. M.C. McMahon of Sepupla, Okla.;Mrs. J. Anson Kline of this city; John F. Gilham of Pemberville, Ohio; Gerald Gilham of Okmulgee, Okla.; W. Scott Gilham of this city; Mrs. C.W. Spangler of Wawa, Okla.; and Chester A. Gilham, of Sepulpa. Okla. Two children are deceased.



Mr. Gilham was a member of the G.A.R. At one time he was postmaster in LaPorte County, Ind. Last winter he spent considerable time with Mrs. H.C. McMahan and son, C.A. McMahan, and daughter, Mrs. Spangler, of Wawa. Scott Gilham, of this city, a son, is deputy postmaster. The funeral will be held from the late home, in charge of Rev. Yocom, probably Thursday.”
