THE WESTERN STAR, 1 November 1901
Obituary of WILLIAM AUSTIN MEALS
DIED
Meals - At his home in Glick tp., Kiowa co., Kansas, on Thursday, October 24, 1901, William A. Meals, aged 39 years, 8 months and 6 days.

William Austin Meals was born in Butler co., Pennsylvania, on Febraury 18, 1862. He moved to Kansas in 1887, settling in Kiowa co. but for the past few years had given his time and attention to farming and stock raising. He had complained for a couple of weeks before his death of not feeling well, but it was not until five days before he died that he took to his bed. The disease - typhoid fever - was rapid, and on Thursday morning, October 24, the death summons came. Burial took place on the following day in the Coldwater cemetery, the funeral services being
conducted by Rev. A. Burill, of the U. B. church. Many neighbors and friends were present at the funeral to show their last tribute of respect.

The deceased was married on July 18, 1889, to Miss Malissa Brown, who with one daughter, Etta, is left to mourn the loss of a loving husband and father. To them the sympathy of kind friends is extended, and in this, their hour of sorrow, they have that which is even more precious than human sympathy - an abiding faith and hope in the Infinite One, who "doeth all things well."

Deceased had been a member of the United Bretheran church for many years and had lived a consistent Christian life. He had always been active in Sabbath school work. At the time of his death, he was teacher of the Bible class at Belvidere. He will be missed by the entire community. A.B.
