O. W. Dayhuff, 85, retired farmer, died at his home on Indiana avenue at 3 o'clock Thursday afternoon following a lingering illness.
The son of Bazil and Jane Dayhuff, the deceased was born in Lafayette township and lived there until nine years ago, when he retired from farming and moved to Spencer. He married the former Sarah Mishler Dec. 31, 1878, who lived on a farm near the one where Mr. Dayhuff was born. The couple moved on the Mishler place and lived there until moving to Spencer.
If Mr. Dayhuff would have lived until Dec. 31 the couple would have observed its sixty-first wedding anniversary.

Ray Dayhuff, manager of the Owen County Farmers' supply, is well-known here and has been commander of the local American Legion post and also a member of the Spencer school board.
Funeral services for the deceased will be held at 10 o'clock Sunday morning at the Calvary U. B. church, with burial in the Macedonia cemetery. The Rev. John Ragle will be in charge of services.
