Daniel McIntosh at Rest

Daniel McIntosh was born at Prescott, Granville county, Ontario, July 13, 1847.  When a young man he followed the lakes and rivers of the north for a few years.  In 1870 he emigrated to Kansas and settled on a homestead in Washington county.

He was married to Miss Lizzie Shaffer and he united with the M. E. church in 1888.

In 1898 he moved with his family to Clay county since which time they have been identified with the Idana presbyterian church.  In the short time that Brother McIntosh has resided in the neighborhood he has made many warm friends.  The power of his christianity was felt in his daily life as he came in contact with mankind.  As long as he was able he filled the place of many an absent teacher in the Sabbath school.  We shall miss him, but our loss is his gain.

Patient in suffering he proved the truth "that God's grace was sufficient" for even that time of trial, and entered into rest October 3, 1900, leaving abundant evidence of a "triumphant entrance."

His lonely wife, four sons and one daughter remain with us.  He had four brothers and four sisters, one brother, Simon, of Washington county, was with him during the last few days of his suffering.

The kindness of friends and their attention to the suffering one, are gratefully remembered by the family.
