WILL PROVIDES EPITAPH.
Isaac H. Kinley, 75, Left Directions for Unique Inscription.
The will of Isaac H. Kinley, 75 years old, who died on April 5 at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. H. Caldwell, 123 South Lawn avenue, was filed in probate court yesterday. In it is a unique clause concerning the epitaph which he requested for his tombstone.
Mr. Kinley was for many years a lawyer and had been a soldier in the Civil war. The third clause of his will follows:
Over my remains I desire a plain square stone erected with an inscription giving my name, Isaac H. Kinley, lawyer, the date of birth and death, also "Private soldier, Co. B. Second Iowa Cavalry, War of 1861-65." Below this add: "The last pleading has been filed; all the evidence is in. Now for the final judgement."
Mr. Kinley, who had farms and city property, bequeathed the property to his widow and at her death to his daughters, Miss Louise Kinley and Mrs. Caldwell. His law library and other personal property are to go to his son, William Kinley, who was associated with him in the law firm of Kinley & Kinley.
