To those who so kindly and thoughtfully assisted us in the funeral of our husband and father we extend our heartfelt thanks.

 -- Mrs. Sarah Show and Family.



     Julius Show was born June 21, 1832 in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. In 1861   he enlisted in the Civil War and after one year of service he was honorably discharged on account of disability.


In 1863 he was married to Miss Sarah Ann  Osler. Of this union there were born seven children, four boys and three girls,  of these four survive him, William H. and Noble Show, Mrs. Les Kepler and Mrs. Philip Peter, all of whom were present at his funeral.


     In 1893 he came to Phillips County, Colorado, and settled the place he ever   afterward made his home. Being well known and well respected a large number people attended his interment.


     The date of his death was November 13, 1908. He seemed to be in better health  than usual and went out into the field to gather a sack of corn, was seen to  start home with the sack on his shoulder, but not coming to the house, search  was made and he was found lying dead with his head resting on the sack as though  he had felt sick and lain down to rest, and then and there passed away. He had in earlier life professed his faith in Christ and joined the Christian Church.


     He lived to be 75 years, 5 months and 22 days old. The burial was conducted by   the G.A.R. Post No. 51. May God abundantly bless his wife and children for      Christ’s sake.
