Article Title: Prospect Monitor
Article Date: August 31 1905
Article Description: Hedges Obit; Raffensperger Death; Current Events; Death of John Waters
Israel Hedges was born in Fairfield County, Ohio, March 27, 1821, died August 22, 1905. He was the son of Caleb and Mary Hedges.
His father's family was large, there being 11 children, 7 boys and 4 girls of which 4 sons and 1 daughter still survive.
The incidents of his life were as follows:
In 1834 he gave his heart to God and joined the M. E. church.
In 1848 he married Mary Barnett, to this union was born 11 children, 6 boys and 5 girls, 3 of which, 1 son and 2 daughters have preceded him to the great beyond, also 4 step children, 2 sons and 2 daughters.j
He also leaves as descendants of their union 32 grand-children, and 1 great grand-daughter.j
Mrs. Hedges died in November 1888 and in June 1890 Mr. Hedges was united in marriage for the 2nd time with Mrs. Minerva Hamner.
Commending upon his life the writer is led to remark that it was an unusual one. This man was unusual in the very ruggedness of his life; strong in fidelity, strong in mental capacity; strong in religious tendencies; these characteristics coupled with a marvelous physique; presents to us a life decidedly out of the ordinary and worthy of our deepest reverence and respect; genial in temperment; sympathetic towards his fellows; he was, speaking sincerely, a real friend and his loss to the community cannot be estimated.
His Christianity had the reverence of deeds and fidelity and because of these sterling qualities his influence will be measured throughout eternity. A constant christian through 70 years, a Sunday School teacher 65 years, liberal in the fullest sense. What a record this makes;
As an inspiration to the young what an example; Never drank, never swore, temperate and kind, a man of power.
While old in years, young in spirit, with ability to seperate the wheat from the chaff of our modern age and appropriating the same to be sweet and beneficial among his fellows. Judged temporally a thorough man, judged eternally a king.
The funeral conducted by Rev. Halliday was held at the Prospect M. E. church, Thursday afternoon, August 24, 1905, with burial in beautifull Radnor cemetery.
IN MEMORY OF ISRAEL HEDGES
By His Sunday School Class.
A precious one from us is gone
A voice we loved is stifled;
A vacant place is in our school
That is very hard to fill.
God in his Wisdom hath removed
A friend, his love hath given.
Although his body slumbers here
His soul is safe in Heaven.
We miss thee from our school dear
