    Ethan Gastineau, the son of James and Louisa Gastineau , was born near Owensburg, Greene County, Indiana, July 30, 1880, and departed this life at his own home, near Newberry, Ind., June 28, 1919. At the time of his death, he was thirty-eight years, ten months and twenty-eight days old.

    On December 24th, 1903, he was united in marraige with Laura Belle Moore, daughter of the late John D. Moore and Catherine Moore. To this union, which was a happy one, were born two children—Macil, age fourteen, and Naomi, aged eight. His wife and two children survive him. He leaves besides these, his father, mother, two sisters—Mrs. Ralph Bogard and Mrs. Win Isenogle; also two brothers—Charles and Zelotas Gastineau.

    Ethan's illness was caused from an infection, following the pulling of a tooth. He was only ill a little over a week, but his suffering was great. All that physicians and loving and tender hands could do for him was done, but it seemed his disease was beyond medical aid. During his illness, he never complained but bore his pain courageously. Immediately prior to his short illness, Ethan was in vigorous health, and the prime of manhood; hence, his departure is a great shock to his relatives and neighbors, as well as a host of loyal and admiring friends in Greene and adjoining counties.

    Ethan Gastineau was truly a manly man, a man among men. He was a devoted husband, a kind and loving father, a royal neighbor and a good citizen. Ethan was a member of the Modern Woodmen and the Masonic Order of Newberry lodge No. 166, F. & A. M. and had always lived a honest upright Christian life.

    The funeral was preached by Elder J. A. Spencer of Sandborn, at Newberry Christian church, Monday afternoon at three o'clock. Interment in Slinkard Cemetery.

    [Note: "Slinkard" may be an old name for Newberry Cemetery, which is where his marker has always been located.]
