Jacob Cellan, second son of Jacob and Martha Cellan, was born in Lucas county, Iawa, on the 29th of May, 1883, and was killed while cleaning some factory machinery in Kansas City, on the morning of June 27, 1906. He lived but a short time after the accident, but expressed himself as being ready to meet his Master with joy. He joined the Salvation Army, and has been in its service ever since. He was a fine type of strong young Christian manhood. Funeral services were held in the Congregational church at noon, July 2, 1906, after which the remains were laid to rest, Rev. O. M. Humphreys conducting the obsequies. He leaves a father, mother and three brothers and three sisters to mourn his loss, besides a host of friends.
