Cemetery office confirmed that burial is unmarked
for Cain H. Billings. Specifically: It seems there are two other markers on the lot. Both markers that are there have no record on file with cemetery office.

Thank you,

Maynard, May 2.—Cain Billings, who
lived alone in Maynard, died at 9:20
Thursday forenoon, aged seventy-seven
years. He had been in poor health all
winter. It i s thought that a gathering
in his head broke on the brain, causing
almost total paralysis, which resulted
in his death in two days. He was
found Wednesday morning, sitting; in a
semi-unconscious condition in a chair
in his home, and remained in this condition
until he passed away Thursday;
Of his four children one died in infancy
the other three—Frank of West Union,
Arlie M. of Cedar Rapids, and Mrs.
Fred Phippen of Waterloo—were all at
his bedside when he died. Mrs. Billings
died in February, 1903. Mr. Billings
was one of the old residents, having
lived in this county thirty-seven
years, thirty-five years of the time in
Maynard. He is survived by his two
brothers at Kilbourne and Orfordville,
Wis., two sisters—one at Orfordville
and one in Chicago, and by an uncle in
Pennsylvania, besides his children already
mentioned. He was born in Luzerne
county, Penn. April 5, 1834, and
later located in Wisconsin, from which.
state he enlisted in Company D of the
Second Wisconsin infantry, a part of
the famous Iron brigade. He later
served in a United States cavalry regi-,
ment, and was in twenty-eight engagements,
including both battles at Bull
Run, Gettysburg, Chancellorsville, and
other leading battles of the war, being
in the service for four years. The
funeral was conducted at 2 o'clock
