      Birth: Sep. 8, 1822; New Market, Highland County, Ohio, USA
      Death: Aug. 11, 1919; Brooklyn, Poweshiek County, Iowa, USA

      Jesse Baldwin Overman, son of Enoch Overman, was born on a farm four miles from Petersburg, Highland county, Ohio, Sept. 8, 1822 and departed this life Aug. 11, 1919, at the age of 96 years, 11 months and 11 days.

Mrs. Florence Chapman Snyder of Brooklyn; Mrs. Belle Scott of Tacoma, Wash., Mrs. Gertrude Story, wife of the late Rev. G. W. Story; George E., who was living at the home with his father.
      In 1852 he moved to Iowa and settled at Sandy Hook, known in after years as Overman's Ferry. He had a general merchandise store, cattle and other stock interests, also three or four farms and the first Rock Island & Pacific Railroad ran through one of his farms at Attalissa.
      He left, beside his children, one brother, Cyrus Overman of Muscatine, who is the last one of the family, and five grandchildren: Charles B. Chapman, a business man of Brooklyn and who has spent most of his life since he was seven years old in the home of this grandfather; Mrs. Chas. Waglin, Jesse Scott of Tacoma, Wash.; Mrs. H. J. Leonard and Harry Story of Freeport; also four great-grandchildren: Dorothy, George and Bessie, children of Mrs. Waglin of Tacoma, Wash., and Wallace Leonard of Freeport, Ill.
      Mr. Overman was left a widower in 1888 and was married to Mrs. Elizabeth Sackett in 1902. She preceeded him to the better land nine years ago.
