Frank DeLashmutt 1865 - 1922

June 22, 1922 – Salem Weekly News

Frank Cecil DeLashmutt, son of William Henry DeLashmutt and Sarah Sellers DeLashmutt was born at Burlington, Des Moines County, January 24, 1865 and died at his home in La Plata Missouri June 12, 1922.

At seven years of age he moved with his parents to a farm near Salem where his boyhood days were spent and where he later attended Elliot Business College at Burlington, graduating with the highest honors or his class and the winner of several scholastic prizes. After completing his schooling he accept a clerical position in the ticket office of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad at Fort Madison.

On June 20, 1889, he was married to Ann Masden, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Algern Madsen of Salem, a former classmate of his at Whittier Academy, where the friendship was formed which was later to grow into undying devotion for each other. To this union were born Anna Cecil who died in infancy, Harry, and Walter.

Mr. DeLashmutt and family moved to La Plata in 1903 to make their home. Here he was agent for the Santa Fe holding that position continuously until 1918 when he resigned because of ill health after having spent 31 years of faithful service with the railroad.

During the last five years of his life, which were years of declining health, he was lovingly and tenderly cared for an made happy by his family and many friends.

Mr. DeLashmutt was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church for 21 years, and during this time he continuously held some official position in the church. He was also a member of the A.F. & A.M. No. 237 of La Plata.

Mr. DeLashmutt was a manly man in all the relationships of his life. The Christian precepts taught him by his mother and the influence of her Christian womanhood in the impressionable period of his life were not forgotten by him and perhaps were largely responsible for his honorable and upright life that he lived. His epitaph is indelibly written on the memory of every friend and the honorable life that he lived so well known in the community where he resided that eulogistic comment is not necessary.

He is survived by his wife and two sons—Harry of Des Moines and Walter, now principal of the High School at La Plata, Missouri, and by two brothers and two sisters—P. J. DeLashmutt, Denver, Colorado, C.I. DeLashmutt of Salem, Nellie of New York City, and Mrs. J.O. Yotter of Thief River Falls, Minnesota. The mother having died January 7, 1890 and the father, September 26, 1915.

Funeral services were at the home of his brother, C. I. DeLashmutt at 11 o’clock Thursday June 15, conducted by Rev. C. Vincent and the body laid to rest in the Salem Cemetery, south.


  I'm attempting to learn more information about Margaret (Sellers) Maiden, wife
of William B. Maiden.  According to "The History of Henry County, Iowa",
Margaret (Sellers) Maiden was born about 1808 in Rockingham County, Virginia,
and died on November 15, 1871, in Henry County, IA.  Her gravestone is indeed
located in the Winfield-Scott Township Cemetery in Winfield, Henry County, IA.

Margaret's maiden name has always been attributed as being Sellers, however, the
names of her parents or even her siblings, if any, have never been uncovered. 
I'm wondering if there is a remote chance of an obituary or some other form of a
record, perhaps a death record, for Margaret upon her death on Nov. 15, 1871. 
I'm really grasping at straws to find a record of any type that might lend clues
about her parents, siblings, etc.  I'd sincerely appreciate any help and/or
clues that can be given in order to find more information about Margaret
(Sellers) Maiden.

Michael Sellers [zeller.sellers@yahoo.coGood thinking about the 1925 census.  Unfortunately, that won't be an option. 
Margaret and William had 10 children, 7 boys & 3 girls.  Of the 7 boys, 6 of
them removed to Butler County, Kansas, in 1878 and never returned to Iowa.  The
1 that remained in Iowa (James M. Maiden), died on October 18, 1896. All three of the girls married and remained in Iowa, however, none made it to
1925.  Caroline (Maiden) Potter died in 1919 while Elizabeth (Maiden) Shultz
and Rebecca (Maiden) Adamson both died in 1922.

I like your thinking, though.  Was a good idea! :-)
