Subject: Obituary of Clarence William Fetterman,
[Son of Jesse Fetterman & Charlotte SAYLES Fetterman]

C.W. Fetterman Dies Sunday After an Operation for Appendicitis

C.W. Fetterman, a well-known pioneer resident of Union county, South Dakota, passed away at the Akron [Iowa] Hospital at about 2 o’clock Sunday afternoon, July 5, 1931, at the age of 73 years, 1 month and 5 days. On June 17, after a very brief illness, he was operated upon for ruptured appendix, and despite the best of medical skill and nursing, his fight for recovery was an unequal one from the start, because of the serious nature of his ailment and his advanced age.

Clarence William Fetterman, son of Jesse and Charlotta [sic] SAYLES Fetterman, was born near Lodi, Ohio, May 30, 1858. When a lad of eleven years he came to South Dakota (then Dakota Territory) with his parents in the early summer of 1869 and lived on a farm near Elk Point. In the fall of the same year they located on the homestead, southwest of Akron [Iowa], which has since remained the family home. After completing the course in the rural schools of his home community, he enrolled in the Akron graded school in the late 70s and was a member of the first graduating class of the Akron high school in 1880. After graduating, he taught in the rural schools of Union county and later took up telegraphy, holding a position as operator in Sioux Falls, S.D. He returned to the home farm and has since resided there. Mr. Fetterman was a man of studious nature and retentive mind, a wide reader and an unusually interesting and entertaining conversationalist. A man of integrity, honorable in all his dealings and of a genial nature, he made many lasting friendships, and by his habits of industry and thrift he accumulated a comfortable competency. He will be widely missed and mourned. The oldest child of the family of three sons, he has been the only surviving member of the family since the death of his brother, Cassius Fetterman, in October, 1923. Albert, the youngest brother, passed away in 1919. His mother died in 1917 and his father in 1889.
The immediate surviving relatives are: Mrs. Edith Danks of Ardmore, Oklahoma, the only surviving child of Cassius Fetterman; Mrs. Frances Fetterman Watson, of New York City; Charlotte Fetterman, Jesse Fetterman and Paul Fetterman, of Omaha, Nebraska; and Donald Fetterman of Chicago, all children of Albert Fetterman. *Mrs. Otis Maynard [Charlotte ‘Lottie’ SAYLES], Miss Hattie Sayles and Frank Sayles, of Akron vicinity, were cousins.

The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon in the Akron M.E. church, conducted by the pastor, Wilson Gow. A large number of neighbors and friends attended as a last tribute of respect. Freedom lodge, No. 434, A. F. & A. M., of which the deceased was a member, attended the service in a body. A male quartet, composed of William Kerr, Robert Kerr, Earl Kerr, Max Pollock, Boyson Ross, Clarence Aalfs and Ole Lawrence.

The impressive burial rites of the Masonic order were exemplified in Riverside cemetery [Akron, Iowa], in charge of V.G. Adams. Interment was in the family lot. ”


*NOTE: Mrs. Otis Maynard [Charlotte ‘Lottie’ SAYLES], Miss Harriet 'Hattie' Sayles and Frank Sayles are the surviving daughters and son of William Sayles and Irenia Albina [Sargent / Sargeant] Sayles.
