Horace H. Heath
Horace H. Heath was born in Warren county, Pa., July 23, 1835.  He was the fifth of a family of seven children and was the son of Josiah and Eleanor D. Heath.   When four years old his parents moved to Summit county, Ohio.  Here he grew to manhood.  In 1862, he enlisted for the defense of his country in the 29th Ohio Volunteer Infantry.  After several months service he was discharged on account of an attack of pneumonia.  After restoration to health he again enlisted and served to the end of the war.  He had the honor of being one of the soldiers who marched with Sherman to the sea.  He took part in some of the great battles of the war.
On March 1, 1863, he was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth Culbertson, of Ashland county, Ohio. In 1867 they moved to Fulton county, Ohio, and in 1871 they came to Steuben county, Indiana, where he has resided almost continuously since.
Three children were born to this union.  One died in infancy; two survive; viz:  Mrs. Addie Heath Barnes, of near Orland and George Heath of Orland.
Ont the 22 of February 1899, the angel of death called at their home and claimed the wife and mother.  After a period of fifteen years he was married to Elizabeth Sowle who survives him.
Sometime during the seventies he accepted Christ as his savior and united with the M.E. church at Carpenter’s Chapel.  December 1, 1915, he transferred his membership to the M.E. church at Angola and remained a member of the same until his demise.
He was also a member of Angola Lodge No. 236 F. & A.M.
Mr Heath was genial, happy, full of cheer and a lover of nature.
Because of age and a general breaking down of his powers he had been failing for a good while.  Three weeks ago he was compelled to take his bed and he gradually grew worse until last Saturday about 8:30 o’clock his spirit took its flight and returned to God who gave it.  He was 83 years, 2 months and 8 days of age.
He leaves to mourn his departure the wife and children named above, three grand children, and other relatives and friends.
