JOSIAH BANKS - Mortuary
Josiah Banks, a son of John and Eunice Banks, was born at Anderson, Madison county, Indiana, April 16, 1833 and died at his home in Scott township, Madison county, Iowa, July 27, 1923, aged 90 years, 3 months and 10 days.
His ancestors were of the sturdiest American stock, having early settled in Burk county, North Carolina, near Raleigh, migrating later to Madison county, Indiana, when that community was a wilderness. In 1855 with his parents he came from Indiana to this county, and the trip was made by wagon and ox teams, requiring 40 days and nights to make the journey. His father, John Banks, entered the land on which he lived at the time of his death, in 1858. He lived upon this land continuously until the time of his death, with the exception of one year spent in Douglas township, this county.
On New Year's Day, 1860, he was united in marriage with Elizabeth Crawford of Union township, this county. Here among the rigorous conditions of pioneer life they reared a family of nine children, all of whom survive and were present at his death and funeral, except his youngest son, Warren, who was drowned in 1902.
The surviving children are: William Banks, Mrs. C. C. Campbell with whom he made his home, Marion Banks, Mrs. C. A. Robbins, Elmer Banks, Mrs. F. R. McKee, Mrs. J. W. McKee, all of Winterset and J. W. Banks of Albion. In addition he left nine grandchildren and two great grandchildren. His wife departed this life April 30, 1902. When seven year of age, he was baptized by the pastor of the U. B. church in Anderson, Ind. He was a good citizen, a kind and obliging neighbor and upright in his dealings with his fellowmen. Rev. L. E. Follansbee, formerly pastor of the First Christian church of Winterset, having officiated at the funeral of his wife, and that of his son, Warren, at his request came from Des Moines, where he now lives, to officiate at his funeral. Burial was made at the Primitive Baptist Cemetery.

He enlisted on July 15, 1861 as a Private in Company C, 44th Regiment, Illinois Infantry Volunteers, promoted to Commissary Seargeant then to Captain (Company K, 44th Illinois Infantry) in the Union Army during the Civil War. He was wounded in the left side by a shell in the Battle of Lookout Mountain on the March to Atlanta; and in the right wrist by a gun shot in Franklin, TN. In the process of being transferred to Texas he contracted a lung infection on board ship in the Gulf of Mexico which bothered him, along with the shell wound, the rest of his life. He was discharged on September 25, 1865. After the war he farmed in Illinois until 1876 when he settled on a farm with his family in McPherson Co., KS. There were six boys and four girls born into this family.
