I looked up the obituary on microfilm. It appeared in the Hill City Republican on Thursday, December 3, 1925, page 1. Contact me offline if you would like the actual photocopy.
JAMES L. DANIELS
"There was a man sent from God whose name was John" was the basis of a few remarks in reference to the life and mission of James L. Daniels spoken by his pastor Rev. W. H. Zook, pastor of the Community church of Hill City, Kan. Rev. M. L. Womack of the local Presbyterian Church read the scripture lesson and Judge R. J. Wallace led in prayer. The funeral service was held at the Community Church Sunday afternoon, November 29. The body was shipped to Goodland, Kan. for interment.
Brother Daniels was born near Dayton, Ohio, on August 10, 1857 and died at his home in Hill City, Kansas, November 28, 1925, at the age of 68 years, 3 months, and 18 days.
When a mere lad his family moved to Redkey, Ind., where he grew to young manhood. Later he followed his father to Beloit, Kan. During his residence there he became acquainted with, and married Miss Nellie Thierolf. To this union were born two sons and one daughter, all of whom survive him. After the death of his wife he came west and as a true minister of Jesus Christ he served the charge of Edmond, Kan. . . Later Brother Daniels moved to Ionia, Kan., where he met and married Anna Huddelson, who served the part of a loving and faithful wife and mother. To this union fourteen children were born, ten sons and four daughters. Three of these children have preceded their father to that Better Land. Beside his immediate family, he is survived by one sister, Mrs. Anna Denton of Beloit, Kan. who with a host of friends mourn his departure.
At the age of twenty-one he was converted and devoted the best part of his life in the Christian work of an evangelist. For a number of years he has been a member of the M. E. Church. . .May God richly bless the splendid family which he leaves to mourn his departure.
