    • A Pioneer Gone

      Leendert Van Pelt was born at Charlois, South Holland, April 6, 1822 and died in Orange City Sunday night. Mr. Van Pelt was one of the early pioneers of the county, coming here from Pella with his family in 1870 which then consisted of his wife and four children, Dirk, Bert, Andrew and Mary. He took up his homestead near town and made a fine farm of it. During the last year or two he had lived with Mr. and Mrs. Ike Vos and had kept around in tolerable health. Sunday morning he was up as usual, smoked his pipe and sat out on the porch for a time. But the machinery was worn out and he passed away peacefully and without pain. Mrs. Van Pelt died five years ago and a daughter Mrs. Van De Steeg in March. Seven children survive, Dirk, Albert, Mrs. Frank Van deStoep, Leendert, Henry, Mrs. J. R. Brink, Mrs. J. G. Van den Berg. There are forty one grandchildren living and eighteen great grandchildren. The funeral took place yesterday at two o'clock from the First Reformed church and was attended by a great number. Mr. Van Pelt passed away surrounded by the evidences on all sides of the remarkable progress in which he and his family had been so large a factor and after an experience to which it is given few men to pass through.

      Note: The obituary is incorrect in stating that Leendert had moved here from Pella with his wife and four children in 1870. By 1870, 10 children had been born, one had died in Holland. It should have read Leendert and his wife had first moved to Pella from South Holland with his wife and four children, Dirk, Bert, Andrew and Mary (Maria Adriana).
