THE WESTERN STAR, 4 December 1903
Obituary of ALVUS M. HAYDOCK
A. M. Haydock, of Protection-tp., went to California a couple of months ago, hoping thereby to receive relief from the affliction from which he suffered --asthma and consumption. His health, however, was apparently too much undermined to be benefitted perceptibly by the move. Mrs. Haydock and two of her sons had planned to start this week for Tulare, California, so as to be with Mr. Haydock, who was staying with his brothers, M. C. and H. C. Haydock, and a sister, Mrs. T. C. Hull, of Tulare. But on last Friday a telegram was received here announcing the sudden death of Mr. Haydock at 4 o'clock that morning. The body was brought home in care of a son, Alvus Haydock, arriving here Wednesday afternoon. Burial took place in the Ashland cemetery. Brief funeral services were conducted by Rev. J. C. Fisher and Rev. Geo. T. Brenner, of the M. E. church. The regular funeral sermon will be preached by Rev.
Fisher at 11 a.m. on next Sunday at the M. E. church in Protection.

The deceased was born in Morgan co., Indiana, 57 years ago. When 2 years of age he moved with his parents to Wapello co., Iowa. From there he moved to Kansas and later returned to Iowa. A couple of years ago he moved with his family to Commanche co., purchasing and settling on the Sickler farm in Protection-tp. Thirty-four years ago he was united in marriage with Miss Lydia Davis, who, with four sons and one daughter
survive him.

A. M. Haydock was a man of sterling worth - upright and honorable in all of his dealings, faithful and considerate in the discharge of every duty as husband, father and as a citizen. Everybody who knew him honored him because of his many honorable and lovable qualities. He had long been a faithful and consistent member of the M. E. church, and his religious profession was lived in his daily walk among his family and fellowmen. For 20 years he was supertindent of the M. E. Sunday school at Ashland, Iowa. In his death the community loses one of the best men and the family a true and devoted husband and father.
