OBITUARY of Wm. Shinn
Was One of the Wealthiest Land Owners in Pike County and An Early Settler.
NEW HARTFORD, Ill., Jan. 27 -- William Shinn, the oldest native born citizen of Pike county was buried here Tuesday. The services were conducted by Rev. G. G. Maple of Lima, a former pastor. Mr. Shinn died Sunday at the home of his daughter. He was 89 years old. A pioneer in Pike county, a gold seeker in California in the brave days of the '50s and afterward the largest sheep raiser in this section, Mr. Shinn lived a life of many adventures and successful achievements.
Born in 1827. He was born in Atlas township in 1827. He was reared in the hardships of pioneer life. His father, Daniel Shinn, brought the first wagons that ever came to Pike county and was a builder of the first log jail at Pittsfield. Young Shinn went to the log schools and at the age of 20 married Mary Lytle and began life independently. He went to California in 1850 and returned a few years later with some money. Using his capital in buying up Illinois land, cheap in those days, and selling it at a profit he prospered. Before his death he owned 1,200 acres in Illinois and 400 acres in Michigan. He usually kept from 500 to 300 sheep on his farms. He was a charter member of I. O. O. F. lodge, No. 424 at New Hartford and a loyal member of the Methodist church at Summer Hill. He died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. William Cunningham near New Hartford.

Falls City, Neb. Nov, 17. -- Down at Rulo in this county there resides at present a man,- Arthur Lytle, who occupies - a unique - positions Soars - years ago he was a fisherman and followed that business for a livelihood. Needing a home he located his humble hut on what was then-a small sand bar island lying near the Missouri shore south from Rulo about two miles. As time went on the accretions made his domain of very respective size, and now it has swollen to nearly two sections of land. Seeing early the possibilities open to him he began to farm and fortune favored him from the first and the hut gave way to a house of normal size and the sheds made place for barns and feed lots. He was Monarch of all he surveyed as neither Missouri nor Nebraska - molested him for taxes and in each of the states he was forbidden to vote as his holdings were regarded as only under the jurisdiction of the general government. He grows acres of tobacco and large field's of corn and small, grain besides raising stock on a large scale. He has resided on the land continuously for twenty-two years and acquired a large competence but now .... makes his home at Rulb, the better to give his children the advantages of the schools there. But he is not yet claimed as a citizen of any state.

Arthur James Lytle, son and only child of the late Mr. and Mrs. Albert Lytle family came to Centralia, Kansas, March 1, 1887. This locality has been the continuous home of Arthur until his sudden death due to the electric storm when bringing his cows from the pasture, Sunday evening June 22, 1941. Arthur was married to Eva Pauline Gaston, January 18, 1905. Two infants born to this union did not survive. Mrs. Lytle passed away December 26, 1930. On March 12, 1933, Arthur Lytle and Mrs. Emma (Ward) Smith were united in marriage, and the Lytle home south of town continued to be their home. He was a man of many friends. His going was indeed a shock to all. Mrs. Lytle has the love and sympathy of all their friends in this her second sorrow. Her first husband Eddie Smith met his death by drowning a number of years ago when with a group of friends they went fishing in the Blue River.

E. Myers and Mrs. H. H. Colwell assisted Mrs. Blanche Darr in caring for the floral offerings. Neighbors and friends provided a cafeteria lunch which was served to the family and guests at the noon hour at the home of Mrs. R. R. Domer. (The Centralia Journal June 27, 1941)
