Life’s Battle Over
An Aged Veteran of the War
PeacefullyPasses Away

Three weeks ago today, Osiah Woods died at his home in Indian Valley, Idaho, at the advanced age of 77 years.

Mr. Woods was the father of thirteen children, among them Mrs. Joseph Flick and Mrs. B.T. May of Cove, ten of whom still survive him. He was grandfather of sixty-eight and the g-grandfather of nine children.

Early in life Mr. Woods became a member of the Baptist church and was an earnest and devout christian to the hour of his death.

During the rebellion he and two of his sons were in the ranks of the Union army fighting for their country and each of them spared to return to their homes, although Mr. Woods sustained such severe injuries, that Congress in 1884 paid him a pension of $933 and allowed him the further sum of six dollars per month during life.

Eastern Oregon Republican, Thursday
December 26, 1889
