1819–May 18, 1906
|William Waterhouse died at the home of his niece, Mrs. J. Braden, on Monday night. For several years he had made his home with the Bradens and had he survived until next Sunday he would have been 89 years of age. He was one of those remarkably well preserved men, having the use of all his faculties, good eye sight and enjoyed old age as few do.
He was sitting in a chair reading a paper, on Saturday morning, and had a stroke of paralysis from which he never recovered.
Mr. Waterhouse was born in London, England, emigrating to this country and for many years resided near Monticello, Iowa, where his remains were taken for interment.
