David P. McKinsey died at his home in Ladoga, March 12, of the grip and old age. He was one of the oldest pioneers of Montgomery County. He was born in Ohio in 1810; he was aged 85 years, 2 months and 2 days and had he lived until the 27th of this month it would have been the 60th anniversary of his marriage.
He, with his wife, united with the church fifty years ago and he has been a faithful Christian loved and respected by all.
He leaves an aged wife and six children to mourn his loss, for dearly beloved was the dear old father and grandfather. But their loss is his gain, for we know that he heard the glad words, “Well done thou good and faithful servant, enter, for blessed are they that die in the Lord.”
