Death of Isaac Harrop
Another of Frontier County’s Old and
Esteemed Citizens Passes Away
Last Monday morning at 4:30 o’clock, Isaac Harrop, one of the old settlers of Frontier county, passed away after an extended illness.
Mr. Harrop had been ailing for about a year and during the past six months his illness developed into a serious condition, the cause of his death being due to Bright’s disease.
Only a few weeks ago Mr. Harrop went to New Jersey to visit his sons in the hope that the change would benefit him. In this he was disappointed and returned to Eustis about two weeks ago. He began to fail rapidly a few days after his return and although, everything that loving hands and medical care could accomplish was done for him, he gradually sank and passed peacefully to his Maker Monday morning. He died at his old home, six miles southwest of Eustis, surrounded by six of his children. His daughter, Mrs. Sarah Toney of Salt Lake, Utah, and a son, Eli Harrop of Fargo, N. D., had been sent for and arrived at his bedside Sunday evening, but he had lapsed into unconsciousness and could not recognize them.
The funeral occurred Tuesday and was largely attended, there being over forty carriages in the procession that followed the remains to the Eustis cemetery, where the body was laid to rest beside that of Mrs. Harrop. Rev. George Michler of the Dunkard church conducted the funeral services.
The deceased was greatly esteemed by all who knew him. He was a good neighbor and an earnest Christian, being a member of the Dunkard church.
Isaac Harrop was born in Chestershire, England, June 18, 1838 and came to the United States in 1865, settling in Pennsylvania. He was married in 1862, but his wife died Oct. 20, 1888. In 1884 Mr. Harrop moved to Frontier county and took up a homestead six miles southwest of Eustis. He leaves eight children, Mrs. Christie Stark, J. W., J. H., and Clarence, all of Eustis; John G. and George of New Jersey, Mrs. Sarah Toney of Salt Lake City and Eli of Fargo, N. D.
The News joins with a host of friends in extending sympathy to the bereaved family.
