Aaron's obituary

"Aaron Culler was born August 28, 1842, at Mt. Union, Stark County, Ohio,and died at his home in Van Nuys, Calif., March 20, 1924, age 81 years,7 months, 12 days. He grew up in the vicinity where he was born. At the age of 19 he volunteered for service in the Civil War. He enlisted in August 22, 1862, a private in Company H. 107 Ohio Infantry. For three years or until the close of the War he was in active service being in several skirmishes and the battle of Gettysburg. He came through unharmed and was mustered out in July 10, 1865 and returned to his home in Ohio. August 22, 1867 he was married to Sarah Jane Powell. They continued to live in Ohio for 13 years after which they moved to Michigan and later to Iowa, where they lived for 19 years. In 1910 they came to Payette, Idaho, where they lived until last summer when they decided to spend some time in Southern California, hoping it would benefit Mrs. Culler's rheumatic condition. The climate seemed to be proving some-what helpful and they had only recently decided to remain there and had just purchased a home into which they had moved only 8 days previous to Mr.Culler's death. He seemed so well pleased over his little home and was eager to make a few little improvements to make things more to his liking. It was while busy with this task, that he laid down his tools and came into the house to rest awhile saying that he did not feel very well. But it was some one else who put the tools away the following morning. A few hours of severe suffering with acute indigestion had accomplished its fatal work. Five children were born to this union all of whom with their mother survive to mourn the loss of a husband and father, who was ever thoughtful and helpful to their welfare, and all of whom were present to attend the funeral. The children are; Ira M. Culler, of Payette; William E. Culler, of Alberta, Canada; Mrs. Edward R. Hiller, of Washta, Iowa; Mrs. Robert M. Hutchinson of Payette; Mrs. James L. Edwards of Van Nuys, California. Mr. Culler was a member of the G.A.R. Post of Payette. He united with the Methodist Church of Payette in 1912 and was a faithful member until his death, he was always an active man. In his younger years he had engaged in farming and carpentering. He did not believe in growing old often remarked that his long life and good health was due to his activity. Home meant much to him and he always enjoyed the interests that centered about it. The funeral was held from the Methodist Church in Payette, Monday at 3o'clock P. M., March 24, conducted by Rev. Knight of New Plymouth,assisted by Rev. Hall. Members of the American Legion acted as pallbearers. Interment at Riverside Cemetery."
