Erwin, Wm.
William Erwin, a prominent citizen died at his home in West Boone township, Sunday, August 19,1906.
William Erwin was born in the township where he died Feb. 12, 1847, and with the exceptions of three years spent in the west when a boy, had spent his entire life in that township.
He was twice married, there are four children by the first marriage living. He was united in marriage with his second wife, who was Anna Lee Todd, October 6,1885, there are 2 children living by this marriage, the wife also survives to mourn the loss of a kind husband.
Wm. Erwin was a good citizen and enjoyed the esteem of the people where he had spent his entire life. This is sufficient proof of his character as a man and a citizen.
He was naturally a man of strong physical powers, but two weeks before his death he suffered a stroke of paralysis and never rallied.
Funeral services over the remains were held Monday, conducted by Taylor Nelson, and the body laid to rest in the Crescent Hill cemetery. -- The Adrian Journal, August 24,1906, Page 1 column 3, Death
