Obituary, 28 Mar 1918, Fremont County, Iowa. 597 THE FREMONT COUNTY HERALD. March 28, 1918. "S. J. WHITEHILL DEAD".-- Samuel J. Whitehill died very suddenly about 8 o'clock Wednesday morning at his home seven miles southeast of Farragut. He seemed in his usual health that morning and was getting out his team to feed his cattle. Mrs. Whitehill noticed that the team was standing beside the tank unattended for quite awhile and went out to investigate and found her husband lying dead beside the team. He had been subject to attacks of heart trouble and his death was the result of that disease. Samuel Whitehill was born in Wheeling, West Virginia. He came here 45 years ago and bought the farm where his death occurred. He was 62 years old last October. In 1881 he married Miss Maude Oviatt at Shenandoah. He is survived by his wife and nine children, who are Frank, who lives near Summit; Vern of near Farragut; Carl of near Blanchard; Ralph, who is in the army and is stationed at Palo Alto, California; and Paul, Sam, Martha, Myrtle and Arlene, who are at home. He leaves two brothers, John of near Farragut and Matthew of Yorktown, and one sister, Mrs. Mary Messler of Canton, Ilinois. In the death of Mr. Whitehill the community has lost a pioneer settler who has exerted a great influence for good. He was loved and admired by those who knew him. He joined the Methodist church at Summit 35 years ago and has been superintendent of the Sunday school there for the last 25 years.--Farragut Leader.
