LeMars Sentinel, Monday, October 10, 1898: Sudden death from heart disease. The community received a shock on Saturday on learning of the death of Wesley Armfield, which occurred very suddenly at his home on Franklin Street at about half past five. He called his wife, who got up to prepare breakfast, and he remained in bed. When she went to tell him breakfast was ready, she found that he was dead. He had been in his usual health, which was not of the best of late years, but had made no complaint. Heart disease is ascribed as the cause. The deceased was 56 years of age, having been born near Tipton Indiana on May 24, 1842. He served through the late war from '61 to '65, being a member of Company G First United States Sharpshooters. He has been a resident of LeMars for the past 25 years. For a number of years he has been employed with the firm of M A Moore & Co. He was twice married. His second wife to whom he was wedded in 1882, survives him and two sons and a daughter who reside at Montfort, Wisconsin. The latter were informed by telegraph of the death.


Burial:

Plymouth County

Plot: Lot 24, Block 4, GAR plot
