E.J. Altizer, Veteran of Civil War passes away Sunday Night
E.J. Altizer, verteran of the civil war and for thirty years a resident of Monroe, died at his home on Ann street last Sunday night after a short illness. Altizer was 86 years of age and was one of the oldest veteran of the war of the rebellion living in this city. The funeral services were held Wednesday and interment took place in the Monroe cemetery. Eli J. Altizer was born in Indiana on September 23, 1830. He moved to Wisconsin while still a young man and was married in that state to Miss Eliza Sturgeon. To this union were born six children, five of whom are deceased, the remaining son Sherman, now residing in Seattle. When the civil war broke out Alitzer enlisted in Co. D. Fourty-second reg. of the Wis. infantry and served during the entire four years of that great struggle. After the war was over he and his family moved to Iowa, where they lived for a number of years, later coming west. In 1885 he moved to this city and had resided here since. In 1905 in this city, Mrs. Altizer died, and two years later he married Mrs. Sally Pearsall, who survives him.
