Another Veteran Called ~ Euphraim Badger ~ born Grant County, Indiana
Posted by: Deborah Brownfield - Stanley (ID *****1616) Date: April 01, 2005 at 14:15:48
  of 1051

The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, September 23, 1908

On Saturday, EUPHRAIM BADGER attended the county veterans' reunion and
enjoyed the meeting of his comrades after so many months confinement to his
home. On Monday the report came that he had been stricken and later passed
away at his home in the east part of the city.

He was born in Grant County, Indiana, November 7, 1836. In 1850 he came to
Iowa, settling in Lucas County, which has ever since been his home. He and
MARGARET HOLMES were married on December 29, 1859, and to them were born two sons and two daughters, WILL B., MRS. JAKE MARTS and MRS. GRANT WILLIBY, of Chariton; and GEORGE, of Council Bluffs. Besides his wife and children, he is survived by four brothers and two sisters, SAMUEL, of Cedar Township, ED and I.N., of Chariton; WILL, of Burlington; F.M., of Idaho and Mesdames MARY and PHOEBE HOLMES, of Chariton.

Funeral services were held at the home, Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock,
conducted by Rev. Wells, of the Christian Church, and interment made in the
Waynick Cemetery.

During the war of the rebellion, he was a gallant soldier, serving three
years and three months in Co. K., 34th Iowa, Vol. Inf., and was a charter
member of the Chariton Fire Department.

The G.A.R. and Fireman took charge of the ceremonies at the grave.

In life he filled the measure of good citizenship and his best monument is
his good name and the esteem of his neighbors.


Mrs. Margaret A. Badger, and family desire to express profound thanks to all
their thoughtful and affectionately helpful friends, whose sympathy and
generous kindness so greatly aided and consoled them during the illness and
at the death of the dear husband and father.

the Army Invisible we have lost an honored comrade, the community a helpful
neighbor, the county one of its oldest and most respected citizens, the wife

Be it resolved: that Iseminger Post No. 18 extend to the sorrowing family
their deepest sympathy in this their hour of sorrow and affliction, and

It is hereby ordered that a copy of these resolutions be furnished the
family, and a copy be spread on the records of the Post.
