    Walter Jamieson

    Walter Jamieson, 68, one of the pioneer residents of the community, died Monday, April 21, at 1:30 p.m. at the Hillcrest sanitarium, at Topeka. Mr. Jamieson had not been well for the past two years, following a severe attack of the flu. His death was a shock to the Rossville relatives as well as his friends, who did not know that his condition was so serious.

    Mr. Jamieson had lived in this community for the past 51 years coming here as a young boy in the spring of 1871 with his parents, from Moline, Ill., where he was born October 28, 1861.

    Up until about 1922 he and his brother Harry had lived on the old family farm northeast of town.

    Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 in the Conwell Mission Mortuary in N. Topeka, conducted by Rev. H.L. Nelson, of Topeka, a former Presbyterian minister of Rossville.

    A large number of old friends and neighbors gathered at the cemetery here for the last rites at his grave.

    The pallbearers were A.L. Ruff, Sherman James, Ted Fields, Gus Kassebaum, Frank Stumbaugh and Albert Reser.

    He is survived by four brothers, E.G. Moline. Ill., A.F., Asher, Okla., Harry W. and A.B. Jamieson of Rossville.
