Funeral of Frank Dufphey
Interment at Mt. Zion Cemetery
The funeral of Frank Dufphey, brief mention of whose death was made alst week, was held at the J.A. Wright home in Battle Creek at 10:30 last Saturday afternoon, Rev. M.Doherty of First Baptist church conducting the services. Interment was made at the Mt. Zion cemtery southwest of Battle Creek.
In the passing of Frank Dufphey Madsion county loses another pioneer. Born in Virginia, he came to Madison county in 1879 and worked with his brother, Joe, until 1883, when he was married to Miss Ellen Casey and bought the farm which has since been his home. Though experiencing all the hardships and privations with which the early settlers had to contend, he had faith in Nebraska and after years of hard work found himself free of debt and in position ot enjoy his declining days. Honest to a fault, he was held in highest regard by all acquaintances and his death is a loss keenly felt by the community.
Mr. Dufphey was 61 years and 6 month old. Aside from the wife and one daughter, Mrs. Stover Mink of Emerick, deceased is survived by four brothers and three sisters, Joe and Mrs. J.A. Wright of Battle Creek, Lawrence and Tom of Tilden, Mrs. Joe Osborn of Schoolcraft, Dick of Idaho and a sister in Virginia.
