"Another Old Citizen Gone."
David A. Salisbury died at 6 o'clock Tuesday morning at the home of his son, E. A. Salisbury, in the Fourth Ward, aged 61 years. The deceased moved to this county 45 years ago from Oakland County, and before entering upon farming, taught school. His home was in Burton for a number of years. Later he engaged in the mercantile business at Goodrich and followed it for a number of years. During the last few years he had been on a farm in the town of Davison. Last fall he moved to Hadley, Lapeer County, and re-engaged in the mercantile business with his son W. D. and Milo Stimson under the firm name of Salisbury and Stimson. About ten weeks ago he was taken sick at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Will Pierson, in Atlas, but recovered sufficiently to be able to come to Flint about five weeks ago. He seemed to improve for some days, but a relapse followed and from that time his decline was steady and rapid. The cause of death was heart disease, with which he had been troubled for some years.
He leaves two sons and a daughter --
E(dward) .A. of this city, and W(ilbur).D. of Hadley, and Mrs. Will (Addie) Pierson, of Atlas, also two brothers, D(aniel).E. of this city, and Dr. A(bram) D. of Ann Arbor. His wife, who was a daughter of the late Daniel Estes, of Burton, preceded him to the grave by about five years. He had also buried a son Daniel and a daughter Myra.
He was a member of the Methodist church, a good man, a true friend, and enjoyed the confidence of all who knew him. The funeral was held at Goodrich Thursday afternoon at 1 o'clock.
