• Obituary: JOB CRANDLE died Wednesday, May 5, at his home in this place after a 15 weeks’ illness of heart disease and complications, at the age of 81 years. He was a Civil War veteran, having enlisted in 1861 and served until the close of the war. He was in Company C, 106th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers, and took part in 17 battles. At Fredericksburg he was wounded in the shoulder. His memory was clear to the last, and during the final days of his life he called the roll of Company C name for name. Through the long illness he was a true soldier, never complaining, although his suffering was intense at times. During these trying days he lived over again the days of the war, and told to those around his bedside many incidents of historic value. He was a member of Ingham Post, Grand Army of the Republic and for 50 years a member of the Methodist Church. His wife died 15 years ago, and his surviving relatives are: sons and daughters, Mrs. C.

Fitzwater, Canton; Mrs. Peter Freeman, Grover; Mrs. Fred Benedict, Savona, N.Y; Inez, Dubois; George and Cora at home; 14 grandchildren including Edward Crandle, Buffalo, and seven great-grandchildren.
