   Jasper Newton McKimmy was born in Preston county, West Virginia, April 20, 1859, died at his home at Beaverton, Mich., June 21, 1930, age 71 years, 2 months and 1 day. At about the age of 12 years his father died. When but 18 years old Jasper came to Lenawee county, Michigan and worked for his brother Perry and others. After a few years he returned to West Virginia and soon brought his mother back to Michigan with him.

   When but a young man he united with the Church of the Brethren and lived a faithful christian life to the end. On Sept. 23, 1883, he was married to Caroline Scholl. To this union were born eight children, six boys and two girls. Three sons and one daughter have preceded him to the spirit world.

   About 25 years ago he was first afflicted with rheumatism. This latter affected his feet, and for the past 17 years he had not been able to walk unaided. This affliction had constantly grown worse until for many months before his death he was confined to his bed entirely. He was always of a cheerful disposition and bore his affliction very patiently.

   Although confined to his home for these many years, excepting when he was occasionally taken out on his wheel chair, yet he was widely known and respected. He will be greatly missed in the home and in the community.

   Surviving him are his wife, three sons, Clarence of Beaverton, Raymond and Willard of Cleveland, Ohio, one daughter, Alta, at home, two brothers, Perry and William of Beaverton, and a host of other relatives and friends.
