Birth: Feb. 2, 1839
Death: Mar. 24, 1863

Serg. Myron Zelotus Riblet, Co. E. 2nd Wis. Cavalry, and 2nd son of Christian Riblet of Okee, Columbia Co., Wis. formerly of Millcreek Twp., Erie Co., Pa, at Jefferson Barracks Hospital, near St. Louis, died on the 24th of March last, age 24 years. We copy the following notice of Serg. Riblet from the Lodi, Wis. Herald. The death of this young man demands more than a passing notice, as he was one of the few who in every relation of life, secured the respect of every one that became acquainted with him. Although of modest and retiring manners, yet he exerted great and beneficial influence in the circle of his young friends. His mind was of a high order, stored with those things that peculiarly fitted him for a life of usefulness, and that led him to sacrifice the comforts of home and the society of those he loved to do battle for his country. He went into the army from a sense of duty; a strong and vigorous constitution he thought fitted him for the service. He bore the hardships and privations o f camp life well for a time, while many of his companions were in the hospital. His mother learning he was very sick, went to him intending to bring him home. However, she was permitted to see him only a short time before his eyes closed in death. She returned with his remains to their home in Ogee. Thus has there been another victim to this wicked, cruel, objectless rebellion; another community has lost one of its brightest ornaments; thus has passed away one that had not an enemy, but was respected and beloved by every one, as the immense concourse of people who attended his funeral fully attested. But we are comforted, in the fact that our loss is his gain.
