Source: Waveland Independent, Friday, April 29, 1904 -- Oliver McLoed died at his home near Brownsvalley, early on last Wednesday morning.  Although advanced in years, he was in the enjoyment of fair health until the present wi nter.  An attack of grip weakened his heart and this was the immediate cause of his death.  The funeral services were held at the home on Sunday under direction of Rev OP Paxon.  The body was then brought here for interme nt in Maple Ridge Cemetery.  Mr. McLeod (sic) was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky, near Paris, April 22, 1818.  His wife, Charlotte Penn was also a native of the same county.  They were married April 8, 1840 and three years later came to Indiana and settled on the farm which was their ho me for the long life they have spent together, and where Mrs. McLoed (sic) survives him.  Nine children were born to them, of whom five are livin g: Mrs. Ellen Graham, lately of WInnipeg, Canada, but now at Irvington; Mrs. Emma Davis, lately of Golden City, Missouri; Oliver; Leslie and MIss Sophronia.  One brother, Henry and one sister, Susan Childers live at Versailles, Kentucky.  Mr. McLoed was a member of the Waveland ME Church for over 60 years and was an active and efficient member, filling many offici al positions and leading a Christian life that was an inspiration to tho se associated with him.  This life is a sufficient eulogy to those who knew him and his death will be severely felt. - typed by kbz
