EARLY SETTLER PASSES AWAY. Dr. Strevelle, a resident of Oxford Mills a few years ago, and one of the real early settlers of this section of Iowa, passed away at his home in Whitney Point, New York, on Sunday of this week, and was buried at Albany, New York, on Tuesday. Dr. Strevelle was sixty-four years of age, and for some time had been more or less of a sufferer, finally suffering a stroke of paralysis, which caused his death. He was a brother-in-law of S.E. Rorick of Oxford Mills. As stated above, he was one of the real early settlers in this locality, being a resident of Oxford Mills before the town of Oxford Junction was stated. He leaves a wife and son to mourn his demise. The bereaved widow will probably return to this locality to reside, where she can be closer to her brother, and where she will be welcomed by a host of old time friends, each and all of whom will join with us in extending their heartfelt sympathy to them in their loss.
