Obituary of Nimrod Kiser


DUMPS CREEK. On the 16th the Death Angel came and took our dear old father away from us, Nimrod Kiser, aged 82 years. He was the father of 10 children, 50 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren, nearly all of whom are living. Brother Kiser had a large connection, many friends, aquaintances and neighbors. He was a good husband, loved and honored by all who knew him. The church and neighbors have lost a good friend and neighbor and the wife and children their best friend, but their loss is his eternal gain. The burial services were conducted by Revs. W. V. Self and Lilburn Kiser. Many of us will long remember the solemn occasion and the last sad parting of dear husband, father and friend. May all that were at this solemn occasion meet him in the land where sad partings never come: in the world [...] cometh no night where the dear ones shall be gathered home.
