John Henry Kisner
Obit: 1918
USEFUL LIFE ENDED
John H. Kisner Died at Home in This City in Ninety-Ninth Year. Lived in White County 62 Years.
The death of John H. Kisner, one of Carmi's oldest residents occurred at his home on Second Street Sunday, June 16th at eleven o'clock, after suffering a general breakdown in health, brought about by his extreme age.
Mr. Kisner had reached the ninetieth milestone in life's journey, April 7th last. The past 62 years of his life has been spent in this county.
Deceased was born in West Virginia April 7th, 1828. He moved to this county, near Brownsville in 1856 and resided on the same place until nine years ago, when he moved to Carmi. At the age of 12, Mr. Kisner professed faith and united with the M.E. church of which he was a faithful member until his death.
Mr. Kisner was thrice married. First to Charlotte Musgraves. Seven children blessed this union. Two of whom died in infancy. Charles H. Kisner of Brownsville, James W. Kisner of Champaign, Ill, and John W. Kisner of Leechville, Arkansas, survive. Mary Elizabeth and Cornelia have gone on before.
Mr. Kisner was next married to Martha Collard. Two children, Monroe Kisner of Indianapolis, Ind., and Benjamin F. Kisner of Enfield survive this union. One daughter died in infancy.
His third marriage was to Malinda Hart. The following children were born to this union: Theophilis Kisner of Biglow, Arkansas, Jesse of Norris City, Ernest of Shreveport, Louisiana, Grover C. of Carmi, Foster of Newington, Virginia, in the U.S. Army, Mrs. Herman Becker of Carmi, Mrs. Charles Bachman of Harrisburg. Two boys, Louis and George preceded their father to the grave.
Besides the children, forty grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren survive, together with two sisters, Sarah Culpepper of Evansville and Louise Brothers of White County.
When the call came for volunteers in the Civil War, Mr. Kisner enlisted in Co.I. 48th Illinois Volunteers. He served throughout the war with credit both to himself and to his country and was in some of the most fiercely contested battles of the entire war. When peace came Mr. Kisner returned to White County and followed the profession of farming on his place near Brownsville. He was a hard worker, an honest business man and by his straight forward business dealings and quiet manner won a host of friends throughout the county, who hold his memory dear.
To know Mr. Kisner was to like him and he will be greatly missed by the county at large.
Funeral services were held at Brownsville Wednesday morning, June 19th at eleven o'clock, conducted by Rev.H.W. Smoot of the Carmi M.E. Church, assisted by Rev. Bunting of the Brownsville church and Eld. D.F. Malin, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Carmi. Internment at West Union.
