Louis C. Wible was born March 17, 1849 in Mason County, IL., and died at his home in Mount Ayr, IA., March 24, 1918, aged 69 years and seven days.
He was the son of Louis and Mary J. Wible and one of a family of six children. In 1874 he came with his brother-in-law to Ringgold County where he was married to Mary J. Armstrong in 1880. He soon after bought the present home where he has since lived. He was a good mechanic and helped to build most of the older places in Mount Ayr. As a man he was industrious and frugal; also a man of strict integrity. It has been said of him, “His word was as good as his bond.”
He leaves to mourn his loss, a brother, Thomas Wible of Mason City, Iowa, and a sister, Mrs. Mary J. Alison, Lincoln, IL.
