Edward Kendall Obituary

Clark County Clipper, January 12, 1905


Edward Kendall was born in Louisville, Ky., February 18th, 1831; departed this life at Ashland, Kansas, Saturday night, January 7th, 1905, age 73 years, 10 months and 19 days.

Deceased was of English decent, his grand parents having removed from England to Virginia, thence to Louisville.  In Kentucky he was a prominent contractor and a brick maker for years, and amassed a comfortable fortune, but lost it all during the panic of the 70's.  Six years ago he started to California, but stopped here on the way, to visit his daughter, Mrs. B. L. Stephens, and liked this country so well that he concluded to locate here, which he did.  He has been in failing health for several years and could not regain his health, although resorting to every remedy at his command.

Edward Kendall was an honorable and upright man in all his dealings; kind and generous.  Before his departure he signified his willingness to meet his God, and said he was prepared to go.

He leaves two daughters to mourn the loss of a father.  One daughter lives in Delhi, Ohio and Mrs. Stephens who lives here at whose home he departed this life.

Card of Thanks.

We desire to extend to the friends who so kindly assisted us during the sickness and extended their sympathies after the death of father, our heartfelt thanks.  The kindness shall never be forgot.

Mr. and Mrs. B. L. Stephens.
