Two Old Settlers
John S. Wagoner
John S. Wagoner, who was buried
this morning, is another of the pio
neersof this vicinity. He was the "old-
est son" of- Uncle Benjamin Wagoners
one of the earliest settlers of Ash
creek. Uncle Benjamin came with a
troop of sons, almost like Jacob' of old,
and founded acolony of Dunkardscon
slstlrjk chiefly of his own family. The
old jjjfutleman has long since passed
from -earth, and of his large family on
ly one Bon, Noah now remains. John,
the eldest son took uphls homestead
across the' line In Kansas, where he
lived until a few years'ago when he re-,
moved to Red Cloud. J
Mr. Wagoner was married to Miss
Anna Throckmorton April 5, 1885 by
our fellow townsman H. C. Wolfe then
Justice of the Peace of Garfield town
ship. One child was born to their marriage,
Mrs. Elmer Long.
Mr. Wagoner was attacked with' a
carbuncle a few weeks before' his
death, which was removed, and the
patient appeared upon the streets h
few days ago, apparently in a fair
way to recover.
Ills fswiden collapse luto a dangeroiirt
condition was u surprise to thoso who
had hailed him as a prosperous con
valescent but a day or two before.
Mr. Wugoncr was born at Rossvllie,
Indiana, August 30th, 1847, came to
this vicinity in the fall of 1871, and
died February 4th, 1013.
The funeral services were conducted
from the Dunkard church, Rev. Jarboe
officiating, and his body was iuterred
in the Wagoner cemetery.
John Rasser. who died at his home
icar Lester Monday morning, was one
f the oldest and earliest of the pio-
eer of the county. As we remember,
)onald McCallum of Guide Rook Is
the only one of the 1870 settlers who
surpassed him in years, and, perhaps
Mr. McCallum and Mr. Peters are the
only ones who bad made their settle
ment in the county at an earlier date.
The others who proceeded the Rassers
have now passed away, It may be
that we are in error in the actual dates
of the arrival of some of the pioneers,
but we have placed the appearance of
the Rasser Brothers In this valley just
a little before the arrival of Roats and
When John and bis brother Gottlieb
strolled into the valley forty-three
years this coming summer, the only
settlement was In the little dug-out
and fort chrlsened Thayer City, where
the village of Guide Rock now stands.

The half dozen men then located in
the county were on the watch for hos
tile Indians, and the first welcome
that the Rassers received was to see
a rifle pointetUat them in the hands of
a man that they afterwards knew and
respected as Joseph Uarber. It did
not take long to nsure the, watchful

appreciated citizens of the country
they have done much to build up and
prosper. John Rasser was the oldest
of four brothers who enlisted in the
civil war. Of Herman descent they
had made their first home in this
country in Milwaukee. There were four
or them, John, Gottlieb, William and
Edward offered themselves up as sac
rifices in the war for union and free-
doau.JJater the three first named
came to this county and took .up their
homes near the mouth of Elm Creek.
William died soon after, a victim
of tuberculosis. A brother-ic law Mr.
Starke, also become interested with
.them In those early years, and bis
sons are now leading farmers in the
valley. John never married, making
his home with his brother Gottlieb,
from whom he has hardly been separ
ated since childhood. Uutll the mar
Huge of Gottlieb, the two brothers
were seldom seen apart, and even after
the marriage, there arc few who can
recall seeing ono of tlieiu in town un
accompanied by the other. Of neither
of them has an unkind word ever been
uttered, and neither of them ever de
served anything but the respect of ull
the people with whom they came In
contact. Industrious, economical, sob
er, peaceful, loyal to the right, faith
ful to duty, the old gentleman has gone
to a deserved reward. His brothers
Charles and Edward came on later
dates and settled themselves as do
serving citizens of this community their
older brothers had helped to form.
