Notes:

Fayette Postal Care, May 17, 1906: Obituary...Harriet M. Widger was born at New Lebanon, Columbia Co., N. Y., Nov. 24, 1837. She was married to Levi W. Burns in the year 1856, and to this union were born eight children, of whom six survive: Wm. W. Burns, Fayette; John E. Burns, Atchison, Kan.; Harriet E. Wroe, Valley Springs, Dak.; Robt. B. Burns, Yankton, S. Dak. The father of this family passed away Feb. 2, 1888, at Lima, Iowa. Deceased was married to Eli Widger Dec. 29, 1892. She was converted when 14 years of age and united with the M. E. church. Her death occurred on May 9,1906, at her home in Fayette, and the funeral was held in the Methodist church on May 11th . Rev. Dr. Sanderson conducted the services.

1912Nov14Thur...Fayette.IA Reporter, Passing of an Old Citizen: Eli Widger was born in Herkimer Co., N.Y,June 30,1827. He moved to Peoria.Co.IL, in 1857, afterward living at Galva in Henry.Co.IL , then later living seven years in McLean.Co.IL. Removed to Iowa in the autumn of 1865, settling in Smithfield township, Fayette Co. In the Spring (1866) he met with an accident through the felling of a tree which rendered him a cripple for the rest of his life. He was obliged to change his occupation from that of farming so in 1868 he moved to Albany, where he engaged first in the Grocery business and afterward took up the work of an insurance solicitor. He struggled against his misfortunes in a way which would put to shame many able bodied men. During the 17yrs he resided in Albany, he was active in church and Sunday school work and was often the one whose efforts along there religious services are maintained. Mr. Widger received au exhorters license in 1867 and a local preachers license in 1875. During the years that followed he often supplied pulpits throughout the county and for a number of years kept up regular preaching appointments not for the remuneration but for the love of God's cause and the hope of doing good to hip fellow men. In his work as lay preacher he represented a type of men who have nearly passed away but whose tireless efforts in the earl history of the Mississippi valley had much to do with its civilization and organization. Mr. Widger was twice married. In 1851 to Sarah Bromley Keeley (Kelly) who died in 1889. Three children died in Illinois while quite young and three others, P. G. Widger and Mrs. Ella Older of Fayette, and Mrs. Jennie Hepworth of Oelwein survive him as do also one brother, Peter G. of Fayette and one sister, Mrs. J. J Servoss of Savage, Montana. He was again married in 1892 to Mrs. Harriet Burns who also proceeded him to the better land in May 1906. The death of Mr. Widger removes from Fayette the last individual who enjoyed a speaking acquaintance with Abraham Lincoln. He lived at on time in IL only a few miles from the home of Mr. Lincoln of whom he was a great admirer. He was a loyal citizen and while prevented by disability from entering the army was a member of the Union League during the war. Respect of his fellow citizens and the large insurance business which he developed bore witness to this fact. In this work he drove over the countv continually until 1908 when failing health compelled him to shift the burden more and more to his daughter Mrs. Ella Older who cared for him in his feebleness until finally the insurance business passed to her name and is continued by her, The end came Monday morning at 5:45 and the funeral was conducted at the Methodist church Wed. afternoon by Dr. G. H. Kennedy assisted by Dr. Daniel. M.Parker. Music was furnished by Mesdames Tireman and Bennett, Prof. Crane and Harry Carmichael. The remains were laid at rest in Grandview Cemetery in Fayette.IA.

1933Jan...Arlington News,  PETER WIDGER DIED; Fayette residents learned Friday morning, Jan. , of the passing of one of its old time residents, Peter G. Widger, who had been in poor health for some time. He was born in New York seventy-nine years ago. When a boy he came west with his parents and has been a resident of Fayette county for sixty-seven years. His education was gained in the rural schools and some time was spent working on farms. He operated a stage line between Lima and IFayette and was in partnership in the livery business with the late F. N. Holmes for some years. He was a well known horse buyer in this community and in later years was in the cattle
business. Besides his wife he is survived by a sister, Mrs. Ella Older of Fayette and a grandson, Gerald Farrell.
