    Jacob D. Van Horn passed from his home in Garwin, Iowa, to his home triumphant, August 28, 1909, and about twelve hours after, on August 29, an older brother, Peter Smith Van Horn, from the home of his son Lewis, followed. The large concourse of people that gathered at this double funeral attested the esteem in which these brothers were held.
    Peter S. and Jacob D. Van Horn were respectively the second and fourth sons of Barnard and Elizabeth Van Horn, having been born May 28, 1830, in Clark Co., Ohio, and Jacob in Champaign Co., on April 12, 1843, making their ages respectively 79 years, 4 months and 1 day, and 66 years, 4 months and 16 days. They both made a profession in early life, uniting with the Seventh-day Baptist church. Peter was a member at Stokes, in Logan Co., Ohio, at Farmington, Ill., Welton and Garwin, Ia., and Nortonville, Kan., while Jacob has known only the Welton and Garwin churches as church homes. Seldom will history produce two brothers whose Christian lives have been a benediction to a greater number.
    Peter S. Van Horn and Mary Randall were married December 25, 1855, while Jacob D. married Caroline B. Pierce, of Welton, Ia., on February 23, 1867. On August 11, 1862, Jacob enlisted in his country's service, was wounded in the battle of Arkansas Post, January 11, 1863, and again at Lovejoy Station, in Georgia, in 1864, from which wound he has since been a continuous sufferer.
    Peter S. leaves a widow, three sons, familiarly known as George, Lew and Los, and an adopted daughter, Mrs. Harry Van Horn, who, with the others, feels keenly the loss of one who was ever a father to her. Jacob D. leaves a widow, three sons - Jay, Harry and Otto - two daughters, Mrs. Angelo Furrow, of Shawnee, Okla., and Miss Mae, while Mrs. J. H. Hurley and Mrs. A. E. Forsythe, stepdaughters, do as truly mourn as others. That a large circle of other relatives and friends bow in sadness goes without the saying. J. T. D.
