David G. Spangler was born in Rossville, Pa., September 1, 1856 and passed away at the family home (in Farnam) June 30, 1933 at the age of seventy-six years, eight months and twenty-nine days. He came to Nebraska in early years and returned to Pennsylvania in 1883. On January 17, 1884, he married Miss Mary M. Wentz. As a bride and groom, they came to eastern Nebraska, March 1, 1884. He has made his home in this state since 1884.

To this union were born five daughters: Mrs. Viola Manzel of Fremont, Nebr.; Mrs. Ada Donelson, Mrs. Virgie Crossgrove, Mrs. Iva Crossgrove and Mrs. Neva Beye, all of Farnam. All of whom have cared for him thru his illness. Eleven grandchildren and three brothers, Chas., of Wisner, Nebr., Sol of Scribner, Nebr., and Lewis, of Wellville, Pa., also survive him. Three brothers and one sister preceded him in death. Many other relatives, surviving him were unable to be present at the funeral.

The funeral service was conducted by Rev. C.R. Tanner and Rev. Satchel. Miss Mable Banks sang, "Lead, Kindly Light" and "Abide with Me" with Mrs. L.H. Fitch at the piano. The church was filled with many friends who mourn their loss and gave sympathy. The floral tributes were beautiful. Burial was in the Farnam Cemetery.

    He will never be forgotton
    Never shall his memory fade
    Sweetest thots shall ever linger
    Round the grave where he is laid.

Card of Thanks
Our thoughts are best expressed in the following poem:

    Our Neighbors
Who stands close when there's grief to bear? Whose kindly hands seem everywhere? The Neighbors! Who, after all's been said and done, Are the best folks beneath God's sun? The Neighbors! and we thank "Our Neighbors". Mrs. Mary Spangler and Family
