    • From Story County Watchman October 6, 1899

      Yesterday C. L. Gearhart of north of Collins died at his home at an advanced age. He has been a resident on his farm there for many years and is classed as one of the older residents of Story county. The funeral takes place today and the remains carried to their last resting place. He was one of the good men of Story county and his many friends and neighbors testify as to his integrity and good standing with them.

      From Story County Watchman October 23, 1899 [sic]

      Collins Liberator: Conrad Gearhart one of Story county's oldest and most respected citizens, ended life by succumbing to the Angel of Death Tuesday afternoon....

      In the same paper:

      Colo Watchman.

      Conrad L. Gearhart was born in Licking county, Ohio, March 9, 1838. He was united in marriage with Sarah Cook, December 19, 1858. They removed to Story Co., in 1865 where they have since resided. There were eight children born to this union, of which all are lived to mourn the loss except one daughter who died in infancy.

      After an illness of three weeks weeks he died at his home in Collins Oct. 3d 1899. Aged 61 years 6 months and 25 days.

      Through his sufferings he was very patient and willing and prepared to go at any time. His last words were: "I love you all but I will have to leave you, 'tis so sweet to think of such a rest after so much suffering. I am going home."

      The remains were followed by a large concourse of relatives and friends from Collins to Colo, where the services were held in the United Evangelical church Oct. 5, at 12 o'clock, conducted by Elder Gilshrist of this place, assisted by Elder Morey of Maxwell, Rev. Caldwell of the M. E. church and Rev. Bamford of the Evangelical church. After the services at the church the body was laid to rest in the Colo cemetery. The departed was well known in this part of the county having resided on a farm 4 miles south of Colo for over 20 years and was respected by all who knew him. [1]
