Robert B. Ogden
September 8, 1819–March 24, 1866
Died at Monticello, March 24, 1866,
in the 47th Year of His Age

Mr. Ogden was born in Frederick county, Virginia, Sept. 8th, 1819. He immigrated to Dubuque county, Iowa, in 1849, where he lived until the 6th of April, 1865, since which date he has been a resident of this place. When about 17 years of age he professed faith in Christ, and continued a professor until his death. Not having had an opportunity to connect himself with the church of his choice ?the Protestant Methodist? he formed no church connection in this State, although he continued to hold fast his confidence in Christ until the date of his death. He was a man of great uprightness of character, a practical Christian, and a prominent and respected citizen.
