65 Years Ago
Ralph D. Horville, a member of one of Allen Countys original pioneer families, died this morning. He was 81. He was the last surviving son of Daniel Horville, who was born in France, migrated to the United States and settled in Allen County in 1856. A few years later he purchased the land northwest of Iola which has long been known as the Horville Ranch. Ralph Horville was born in Iola and has lived in this vicinity all of his life. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church. He is survived by his wife and three sisters, Mrs. Ed Smith, Mrs. J. V. Roberts and Mrs. John Foust, all of Iola.
