Jacob Carner was born near Philadelphia, Pa., November 20, 1820, and died at his home near Clay postoffice, January 2, 1903, aged 82 years, one month and 13 days.
He was converted in early life and united with the Church of God, and lived the life of a faithful consistent christian until his death.
He was united in marriage with Sarah Clem Albertson, August 31, 1848. To this union nine children were born, six sons and three daughters, seven of whom, five sons and two daughters survive him.
He came to Adair county in 1855, one of the pioneers, and he and his sons did much toward the development of the county. During his long residence of nearly a half century no word of reproach was spoken against his character. He followed the Golden Rule, and many times trusted and assisted others to his own detriment.
A good citizen has gone and a host of friends mourn, but his good deeds will live as a shining light to lead others in the way of truth and right.
