      DEATH OF JUDGE MOTT

      Pioneer Resident of Winterset Dies in Des Moines

      Following a stroke of paralysis occurring several weeks ago, Judge Frederick Mott died in Des Moines on Sunday afternoon, July 2nd at two o'clock. With his death, has passed one of the best known men of this county.

      He was a Pennsylvanian, born Jan. 14, 1828 in Susquehanna county, moving to our town in 1857. His marriage to Miss Mary Best occurred here in July 1861. Their four sons, Shelton, Leonard, Chester and Myron, were born and grew to manhood here. Since Mrs. Mott's death in 1906, Judge Mott has made his home in Des Moines with his sons.

      His service in the 39th Iowa, as quartermaster and assistant adjutant general, afforded him an opportunity for a wide acquaintance, which became still more extensive in later years from his public services. As judge of the circuit court, professor of law at the S.U.I. and as president of the Baptist college in Des Moines, he was honored and respected. In later years, he was long associated with the First National Bank as cashier, director and president.

      During his long residence in Winterset Judge Mott was widely known for his Christian character. As a churchman, he was earnest and devoted; his family ties were strong, comradeship with the veterans was dear to him and he was kind hearted and generous to a fault. Loyalty and honesty were strong traits and older people of this vicinity will recognize the value of his life, labor and influence upon this county and town. He was one of the last of the old time leaders who located here in the history making days of Winterset.

      The body will be brought here for burial tomorrow morning, services to be held at ten o'clock in the Baptist church.
