After four years of happy and active life, death removed the wife and mother.Mr. Milner was mustered into the service of his country August 13, 1862 as corporal and served for three years in Company B, 99th in infantry. He was honorably discharged June 5, 1865 at Washington D. C.He was married a second time, Miss Pheby A. Blakley being his bride. The marriage took place in Hancock County, December 24, 1865. To this union a son, W. Lewis, was born. He died in Madison, Kansas, March 12, 1893. The family had lived inHancock county, in, until September 1865, when they moved to Kansas, settling on a farm in Greenwood county five miles northwest of Madison.Amos Milner joined the M. E. church, at the Line schoolhouse northwest of Madison in 1872.Those who survive the departed are his wife and oldest son, James E. The son and his family live on a farm in Lyon county just over the county line and adjoining the Milner homestead. There are also a large number of relatives including niecesand nephews. All these feel the loss keenly. The family and relatives are receiving the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community.The deceased was an active and honored member of the Madison Grange for many years. He was also a member of the G. A. R."Uncle Amos" as most of those who knew him best called him because they loved and respected him, was active in church work, being heartily joined in this holy work by his companion and helpmate of 52 years, walking the pathway together.He had been seriously sick for nine weeks before death came. He died of old age and complication of diseases. During his last weeks, he was a great sufferer, but he bore the pain patiently and without complaint. He had a smile and a heartygreeting for all who called to see him, and very graciously inquired for those absent.This respected citizen and Christian gentleman was quiet and kind, to all. The church has lost one of her pillars and will miss him in her services and councils. He will be missed by his pastor for whom he always had a warm greeting and kindwords of appreciation. Those who live right before God will surely meet Uncle Amos in the Heavenly City. Until then farewell. Now we hear him saying victoriously:"I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course. I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for Maine a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give at that day: and not to Maine only, but to all themalso that love his appearing."The funeral services were held at the M.
