Gloversville Herald, Dec.17—Delos Klock of the town of Ephrath wanted to live until his eighty ninth birthday. Wednesday morning at 4 o’clock on the eighty-ninth anniversary of his birth, he died at the home of his son, two miles west of Ephrath village. Twenty years ago Wednesday his wife suddenly died.
Mr. Klock was born in the Town of St. Johnsville, December 15, 1837, at the old Klock homestead now owned by a brother. He remained at home until about thirty years old then moved to McConnellville, Oneida county, where he remained thirty seven years. Twenty years ago he returned to his present residence and early last fall suffered a stroke of paralysis from which he never fully recovered. Until the last Mr. Klock was conscious and a few minutes before his death spoke of the passing of his wife.
Surviving Mr. Klock are two sons and two daughters, George Klock of Grand Rapids, Mich., Mrs Maud Phelps of McConnellsville, Mrs Anna Jacquays of Rome and Charles Klock with whom he resided also two brothers, Jonas Klock of Krings Bush and Sheldon Klock of St. Johnsville and two grandchildren.
The funeral will be held tomorrow at 12 o’clock at the home of his son Charles Klock. Interment will be made at Prospect View cemetery St. Johnsville.
