    • (OBIT: Jonathan H. Addison was born January 22, 1836, at Zanesville, Ohio, and died in Newcastle, Nebraska, February 18, 1916, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ellen Cummins. Mr. Addison was united in marriage to Mary E. Dean, August 21, 1859, to this union nine children were born, two daughters and one infant child having preceded him. There remains to mourn his loss, one daughter, five sons and one sister, namely: Ellen Cummins, Geo. B., John D., in Newcastle; Jake D., and Otis D., of Belvideere, S.D., and Carl J. of Daily.
      The funeral services were held at the Congregational church here in Newcastle, Sunday, February 20, Rev. J.M. Hinds preaching the funeral sermon. Interment was made in the Daily cemetery, beside his wife who had preceded him.
      The large concourse of relatives and friends that assembled at the rites for the departed one were __(unable to read) evidence of the high esteem in which he was held in this community.
      MEMOIR
      Mr. Addison and wife in the fall of 1861 moved to Oceolia, Iowa, making the trip by train. They resided at Osceolia for 9 years, and then came to Dixon County in 1870 and located on a homestead in Daily township, being one of the early settlers. In the early days of Dixon County, he battled with the hardships that came with the early settling of the county, but by his thrift and perserverance he surmounted the obstacles as they arose in his path, and his efforts were rewarded, he accumulated a goodly amount of this worlds goods.
      For a number of years he taught school. Then the people of the county asked him to serve them sometimes as County Assessor, for two years as Superintendent of schools, and again as Supervisor. These services extended over many years and shows the esteem and respect in which he was held by all who knew him.
      Since his wife died in 1909, he has made his home with his children, sometimes on the farm and again here in town, since early last fall he has made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Ellen Cummins here in Newcastle, at which place he died. He has been in poor health for nearly a year, and last summer he became very ill, after which he never fully recovered, early in the fall he was able to walk down town and later was taken ill and after a lingering illness he passed away. In health he was a familiar figure on our streets and had a cheery greeting for all, and having resided in the county for so many years his acquaintances were unlimited. He was a friend to all, and was ever ready to lend the helping hand to those in need. He will be sadly missed in the home, but his influence for good will live on, and he will be remembered by the good he has done.”
