  • Notes 
    • John Grant Holston's obituary: "Grant Holston was born December 17, 1884 at Monticello, Iowa, and passed away at St. Margaret's hospital in Kansas City, KS November 8, 1931, at the age of almost 67 years.

      During the early years of his life he moved to Taylor County, Iowa, where he lived for several years and grew to young manhood. He was united in the most endearing relation to Jennie O'Beirn of Lenox, Iowa. Their hearts filled with love, faith, courage and venture, seeking a home, they; came to the beautiful state of Nebraska in April 1886 and took a homestead northwest of Trenton. This home was blessed with two children, Maude and Thomas. Thomas died in infancy immediately following the death of the mother in April 1888.

      On his birthday, December 17, 1890 Mr. Holston married his present wife, Hattie Jones, whose parents were also pioneers. To this union were born seven children, Beryl, Lew, Lloyd, Irene, Sterling, Beth, DeLynn all of whom with Mrs. Holston survive. He is also survived by his daughter, Maud, seven grandchildren, one sister, Mrs. Charles O'Beirn of Gravity, Iowa, many other relatives and friends.
      For more than 45 years Grant has known the experiences and fellowship of this community. An experience accorded to but few, to see a community grow from a few families, and a box car by the side of the track to a prosperous community with many fine people and children, splendid homes, beautiful temples of worship, remarkable public schools and successful places of business. He, with his family have gone through hardships as well as the pleasures of this country and has had a very large part in developing this wild, virgin country into its present beautiful condition.

      Funeral services were held in the Methodist Church in Trenton. The very large attendance at these services and the very large display of floral offerings testified in a positive way the esteem in which Mr. Holston and his family are held in Trenton.

      All the children of Mr. and Mrs. J.G. Holston were home for their father's funeral with the exception of one daughter, Mrs. L. M. Cowley of Phoenix, AZ. Those present were: Mrs. C.E. Chatel of Denver, Mrs. F. P. Willet of Atchinson, KS, L.M. Holston of Wellington, CO, Sterling Holston of Indianapolis, IN, Lew, Beth and DeLynn of Trenton."
