Anson P. Stillman was born at De Ruyter, N. Y., December 24, 1838, and died at his home in Nortonville, Kan., March 6, 1919, at the age of 80 years, 2 months and 12 days.
When he was seventeen years of age he moved with his parents to West Hallock, Ill., where he resided until 1881, when he came to Nortonville and settled on a farm. On March 1, 1862 he was married to Adelia Maxson, to which union were born four children, Elmer, of South Dakota; Walter of North Loup, Neb., and Frank and Mrs. Dora Hurley, of Nortonville, who with their mother survive him.
In August of 1862, or about five months after his marriage, he enlisted in the 86th Illinois, and served until the close of the war without a leave of absence or furlough. He was a member of the local G. A. R. and for the last few years acted as flag bearer and was always proud of the flag under which he had fought for more than three years. He leaves to mourn his loss his companion of almost 60 years, his four children, two sisters, several grandchildren and a large number of other relatives and friends.
Funeral services were conducted at the home with the members of the G. A. R. in attendance. He was laid to rest in the Nortonville Cemetery. H. L. P.
