    A Good Citizen Dead

    "The death of Israel Christie occurred at his home on his farm, in Stanton Twp., last Friday evening. He had been in failing health for several years and recently had grown quite feeble, but was able to be about home and his condition was not considered critical. He had been gone from the house for a longer time than usual, and one of the family members went to look for him and found him lying dead in one of the outer buildings. His death was caused by hemorrhage of the lungs.

    Mr. Christie's age was 73 yrs. and 11 months. He was a native of Kentucky and when a young man moved to Indiana where he was married to his surviving wife, who is now very feeble. They were among the Pioneer settlers of Miami County, emigrating here from Indiana in 1856, during the trying times on the border, and locating at Stanton.

    Mr. Christie was an ardent, outspoken Free State man, and he, with several neighbors, being informed that they were marked men by the border ruffians, accepted the advice of their friends and left the state for a brief time, returning to Stanton in the fall of 1857 and homesteaded 160 acres, which he improved, and where he resided until his death.

    Mr. Christie was held in great esteem by all who knew him. He was a safe councilor, in whom his neighbors had the utmost confidence. Politically he was a Republican and until recent years there was not a caucus held in his township or a county convention but what he was present and took an active interest for the welfare of his party. He was outspoken and frank in his views, well posted on all subjects and held his own in debate on every occasion.

    Under the Wyandotte Constitution of 1859 he was appointed by Gov. Charles Robinson one of the three county commissioners for Miami County and was afterward elected chairman of the board, serving until 1862, when he was elected to the Legislature in the 43rd representative district. He received the appointment and took the census of Stanton township in 1870, and was several times elected Justice of the Peace, and numerous times elected and creditably filled various township offices. He was a conscientious Christian and a member of the Baptist Church for many years. He was also a member of the Masonic fraternity. Mr. Christie was a good farmer and careful business man and will be greatly missed by his neighbors and friends, as well as his family.

    Besides his wife he leaves 2 daughters, Mrs. John T. Haight of Stanton, Mrs. W.W. May of Yoakum, Texas, and seven sons, William L. at Cedarvale, Kansas, James M. at Waverly, Kansas, Thomas N. of Republic, Mo., John Reece, Blackwell, Oklahoma Territory, Frank G. at Englevale, Kansas and Ezra W. and Carl at home. The funeral services, conducted by Rev. Mr. Iler, were held at the school house in Stanton Sunday. The remains were buried in the Stanton cemetery."
