Theodore Tebo
January 12, 1852–January 5, 1938

Onslow—Theodore Tebo, 85, died at his home in Onslow Thursday. The son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Tebo, he was born in Newark, N.J., Jan. 12, 1852. The family came to Iowa in 1857 and settled in Jones county in the community known as East Ridge. Mr. Tebo was the last remaining original settler of the town of Onslow, having built his home here in 1871 when the railroad went through, and having helped to found the town.
He was an accomplished stone mason and construction engineer, and almost all the cement sidewalks in Onslow bear his name. He was married to Viola Nichols who died in 1904. To them were born four children, all of whom survive. They were Ferdinand of Amber, John, Mrs. Jessie Snyder and Raymond, all of Onslow.
He is also survived by six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, and one sister, Mrs. Frances Jennings of Clarinda. Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon in the Onslow Presbyterian church.
