  20. Obituary


    Out at the Round Prairie Cemetery, some two miles upon the other side of Milford, upon Wednesday last, there was laid to rest one of the most notable, as well as the oldest of Barton County's pioneers. It was Ludwig Rector, known and referred to affectionately for miles around as "Uncle Luddly." Uncle Lud came to Barton county more than fifty years ago. In fact he is said to have carried a chain, or at least to have had something to do in helping lay out the original town of Lamar, which was done in the early fifties. He settled over on Horse Creek when a young man, perhaps under thirty-five years of age, and for the past quarter of a century he has been the Nestor and patron Saint of the whole Horse Creek country. All of the large family of Rectors are either his descendants or the descendants of his close relatives. In fact the whole country over there was Uncle Lud's kindred. Even if they were not bound to him by ties of blood, they were by these of reverence and sympathy. All of the people that Uncle Lud liked he had a habit of calling "son," and many is the gray-haired man who has been reminded of his comparative youth, through hearing the venerable patriarch address him as "son." Uncle Lud was proud of his great age, proud of his early knowledge of the country and above all, proud of his Democracy. It was his proud boast that from his earliest youth he had gone to the polls at every election and voted the Democrat ticket, like it was printed. He was nearly ninety years old, and until two or three years before his death, he had good health despite his great weight of years.
