Princeton UNION Dec 1919

William J. Applegate died at his home in North Princeton on Monday at 2 o'clock.

He was born in Mohawk, N. Y., 84 years ago last August. Two sons, Albert and William, were born of his first marriage in Mohawk.

When Lincoln called for volunteers the deceased responded and for three years rendered valiant service to preserve the union and free the slaves. He was in some of the fiercest battles and to his deathbed carried a bullet as a souvenir of his war experience. He was a member of the G. A. R. and always enjoyed the fellowship of the old boys. He was optimistic and a ready wit, cordial and polite in manner and active in mind and body to the end of life. Fifty-two years ago he came to Princeton and four years later was married to Miss Harriet Ecclebarger.

He is survived by his wife and the following children: Mrs. Ida Coons, Mrs. Frank Guyette, Melvin, Willard, William, Albert, Mrs. Alexander Burke and Mrs. Harry Olson. He also leaves 21 grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

Funeral services were held yesterday afternoon at the Methodist church and a quartet furnished hymnal selections. The interment was at Oak Knoll.

William Applegate was a man who commanded the respect of all who knew him.
