His Obituary appeared in the 841 NEWELL S. ACKLEY, one of the prominent farmers of this section of the county, and one of the best loved and most highly respected of our citizens, was overcome by the heat Thursday afternoon, while fighting a brush fire near a valuable tract of timber on his farm. During the morning Mr. Ackley was about the farm sewing oats and at noon he came to the house feeling tired and after dinner laid down for a time to rest. Shortly after he concluded to burn up some brush on a field back of his home, and without doubt it was the over exertion of keeping this fire from spreading that was the direct cause of his death, along with the extreme heat of the day. The family becoming alarmed at his not returning in the evening made as thorough a search as was possible and also notified the neighbors of their fears for his safety, and at about 9:30 o'clock that evening his dead body was found seated by a fence in the field where he had worked during the afternoon. Mr. Ackley was born on the farm where he spent the balance of his life on July 17, 1849, he thus being almost 59 years of age, and on October 22, 1872. He was united in marriage to Miss Mary Miller. To this ideal home there were born a family of six children, two of whom, besides the wife, survive, Bertha, who is married to Charles Brown of Tuscarora township, and Royal, who lives on the old homestead farm. Mr. Ackley was a gentleman well known and highly esteemed in his neighborhood, and it has been said of him that he had more friends won by his ideal character and life than any other man in this section of the county. For many years he has been an official member of the Methodist Episcopal Church of this borough, and of the hours of beautiful service and years of faithfulness for Christ's sake and in His name only He who knoweth all has a full record. The church and community suffers a great loss, but will keep in lasting remembrance that in our midst he lived a most consistent Christian life, building up a character of sterling worth. The funeral services were held at the Ackley home Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. E. E. Barker officiating. The pallbearers were the officials of the church of which Mr. Ackley was a member.
