The Mulhall Enterprise
Friday, January 9, 1903

From the Sabetha Republican-Herald we copy the following notice of the death of Mrs. J.F. Hoopes' father who passed from this earth Monday, Jan. 22, 1902:
"Isaac Sweetland, who has been a sufferer from a long time, died Monday, and the funeral was held yesterday afternoon in G.A.R. Hall, conducted by Rev. J.S. Ford. A large number of the old soldiers under direction of Commander Isely attended the funeral and participated in the exercises.
Deceased was born in Detroit, Michigan, September 10, 1823.
He was married July 10, 1842, to Sarah Bowman. Twelve children were born to this union, eight of whom, with the aged wife, are left to mourn. All the children except two, Isaac, of Portland, Oregon, and Mrs. J.F. Hoopes, of Mulhall, Oklahoma, were present at the bedside.
Mr. and Mrs. Sweetland came to Kansas in 1854 and settled near White Cloud. In 1857 they settled on what is now the John Beamer farm, east of Sabetha. In 1870 they moved to Sabetha.
Mr. Sweetland was a carpenter, and helped to build the first school house in Sabetha. It was a small building located just north of the present residence of John Masters, and has long since disappeared.
He served three years in Co. D. 8th Kansas Volunteers, and in this service contracted the disease from which he suffered during the twenty-three years preceding his death."
