Oldham was buried at Fairfield Cemetery, Fairfield, Clay Co., Nebraska.1,2,3 He was born on June 30, 1863 at Eddyville, Harrison Township, Mahaska Co., Iowa.1,3 He married Laura Margaret Keeney on May 30, 1894 at Clay Center, Clay Co., Nebraska.3,5 Arah H. Oldham died on March 3, 1930 at DeWeese, Clay Co., Nebraska, at age 66.1,3 He Arah H. Oldham was born June 30, 1863, near Eddyville, Iowa, where he lived with his parents until he was about elven years of age when the family moved to Nucklolls county, Nebraska, and here is where the family lived on a homestead until he grew to manhood and completed his education. In May, 1895, Mr Oldham was united in marriage to Miss Laura Keeney and began housekeeping in the community where he had been reared from childhood and underwent the hardships of helping to develop the prairies became our beautiful country which we are now enjoying To this union was born one son, who has always lived at home, and was with his father when the end came. In the year 1902 Mr Oldham and his family moved to the state of Washington, where they remained until 1912, when they returned to Nebraska, and settled near Deweese in Clay county which has been their home until the time of his death, which occurred last Monday morning at 12:35, March 3, 1930, being 66 years, 8 months and 3 days of age. The subject of this sketch has always been in reasonable good health until about two weeks ago when he took ill and everything was done that skilled physicians could do, but all in vain. Early in life he confessed his faith in Christ and became identified with the Restoration movement and placed his membership with the Church of Christ at Deweese, where it remained to the time of his death. The funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 in the church of which he was a member in Deweese by the pastor of the Church of Christ of Edgar who spoke words of comfort to a large company of friends and neighbors who had gathered to pay a tribute of respect to a companion, a father and a neighbor of the words of the Apostle Paul in 2 Cor. 1:3-4, "Blessed be God even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort who comforteth us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith ourselves are comforted of God." The music was furnished by a mixed quartet with Miss Dunkle at the piano. The floral offerings were very beautiful. The pallbearers were members of the Woodman lodge. Our deceased brother leaves to mourn a loving companion, one son, Erwin, four sisters, one brother, besides many friends and neighbors. May the bereaved ones have strength for this sad experience in life, are the wishes of the writer and his many friends. Interment was made in the Fairfield cemetery. on March 7, 1930.3

     Ida Mae Oldham was buried at Fairfield Cemetery, Fairfield, Clay Co., Nebraska.7 She was born on March 14, 1868 at Eddyville, Harrison Township, Mahaska Co., Iowa.1,7,8 She married Clement Vallandingham Brandenburg on April 21, 1895 at Nuckolls Co., Nebraska.1,8 As of April 21, 1895,her married name was Brandenburg. Ida Mae Oldham and Clement Vallandingham Brandenburg were divorced before June 2, 1900.5 Ida Mae Oldham died on October 3, 1945 at Fairfield, Clay Co., Nebraska, at age 77.1,7,8 She Ida Mae Brandenburg was born near Eddiville, Iowa, March 14, 1868, and departed this life at her home in Fairfield October 3, 1945. She came with her parents, Geo. on a homestead in Nuckolls county in on a homestead in Nuckolls county in 1873. In this vicinity she grew to womanhood. She was married to Val Brandenburg, April 21, 1895. To this union was born one son, Homer, who preceded her in death several years ago. She became a Christian in 1893 uniting with the church at Deweese. She transferred her membership from Deweese to Fairfield when moving here over 35 years ago. She has remained faithful to the church and her Savior. One of her greatest joys was in serving and attending the church services. Her going leaves but one living member of that early Christian pioneer family, a sister, Mrs. Lucy La Bounty of Bellingham, Wash. Her parents, three brothers, Adam, Aaron and Arah Oldham, and two sisters, Mrs. L.D.R. Norwood and Mrs. Olive King, have gone on before. She leaves besides her sister, two nieces and seven nephews, 14 great nieces and nephefs, and 7 great great nieces and nephews, several cousins, and a host of friends who shall miss her, but none would wish her back to the pain and suffering she has had to endure the past 7 1/2 months. Through it all, her hope of Heaven was her greatest comfort. The dear Lord's best interpretors are humble human souls; The gospel of a life like hers is more than books or scrolls. Funeral servces were conducted from the Christian church Friday afternoon at 2:30; the pastor of Edgar church, Rev. Chas. Harris assisted by the local pastor, Rev. Chas. Selby officiating. on October 25, 1945.8
