Notes
a. Note:   William Sherman VanHorn 1868-1940
  Jon Saunders  - Mar 15, 2010 "The North Loup Loyalist", North Loup, Nebraska, Friday, Aug. 30, 1940, p 1.
  Friends were saddened Saturday evening when it was learned that Will VanHorn had passed away in his home in this village, but his death was not unexpected. Last rites were held Wednesday afternoon from the Seventh Day Baptist church, conducted by his pastor, Rev. A. C. Ehret. Bearers were L. L. Lewis, C. W. McClellan, J. A. Barber, Will Cook, Bert Sayre, and Will Eglehoff. Music was arranged by Mrs. W. G. Johnson, singers being Mr. and Mrs. E. T. Babcock, Albert Babcock and Mrs. Harlan Brennick. Mrs. Clara Clement Holmes was in charge of the flowers, there being many to testify of the many friends of Will VanHorn and his family. Short services were held at the home before the rites at the church. Interment was made in the North Loup Cemetery, Miller Bros. being in charge. William Sherman VanHorn, son of Deacon Lewis R. and Sarah Furrow VanHorn, was born, Dec. 20, 1868, in Stokes township, Logan county, Ohio. When ten years of age, his parents moved to Humboldt, where he grew to manhood. Feb. 11, 1892, he was married to Miss Alice Adams, also of Humboldt. A year later, he and his young wife joined the band of covered wagons and came as far as Farnam, Nebr. In 1910, they came to North Loup, which has been their home since. Six children were born to them, Lloyd Orell and Hazel Viola Ingraham, both of North Loup, Elwood Burdette of St. Paul, Nebr., Leland Ray, who passed away June 29, 1927, Erma May Walkup and William Sheldon, also of North Loup. Besides his invalid wife, and his children, he leaves twenty-two grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, one brother, Robert, and a sister, Mrs. Ella Davis, both of North Loup, and a sister, Mrs. Hannah Davis of Ericson. Many more distant relatives and a host of friends grieve with the immediate family at his passing. When he was a young man he was baptized by Elder U. M. Babcock, and joined the Long Branch Seventh Day Baptist church at Humboldt, and when at Farnam he helped to organize the church there and became a charter member. Later he transferred his membership to North Loup. Ill health of himself and his wife interfered with active church work and attendance, but he always retained his love for the church and devotion to its precepts. Serious illness when young left its mark upon him and he battled all his life with poor health. When his wife, too, broke in health, his constant care for her assisted principally by his two youngest children, Sheldon and Mrs. Walkup, took his remaining strength, and he passed away, Sabbath day, Aug. 24. In spite of poor health, Mr. VanHorn was a good farmer and had such good judgment that he could always rent the best farms. He retained the confidence of his landlords both in his farming ability, and his honesty and at one time managed a large cattle business for a wealthy man in Omaha. One noticeable characteristic was his good nature and humor. If he could not joke the family knew things were serious. His chief ambition was to be a good husband and father, a good friend and neighbor. J. T. B.
