PIONEER SAW MILL MAN DEAD
D.A.(Al.) Curtiss Dies After Short Illness of Gangrene
Had Livedin County Fifty Years
Was 68 Years Old
D.A. Curtiss, one of the earliest residents of this section, died at the home of his son, E.E. Curtiss, in this city, Monday morning, after a short illness. He was taken ill Friday with gangrene caused from an infected toe.
Deceased was born at Rockford, Ill., July 3, 1858, and in the fall of that year the family moved to Eau Galle, Dunn County, Wisconsin, where they lived for eight years, moving from there into St. Croix County and in 1875 settled at Clear Lake, having lived in Polk County for fifty years all of that time in Clear Lake and Amery. He was married to Miss Lucy E. Booth at Clayton on October 22, 1876, to which union eight children were born, the following of whom with his wife survive: Mildred Adams, Kalispell, Montana; Mrs. R.C. Redeker of Polson, Montana; L.L. Curtiss, Virginia, Minnesota; Mrs. C.L. Leadholm, and E.E. Curtiss, Amery. One brother, Edward, of Virginia, Minnesota, also survives.
Mr. Curtiss was active in the early activities of this locality having been a sawyer and filer in the largest mills and it was his ability to "fix" a saw that made possible many record cutting cuts. He was a genial amiable man who was known by every old time logger and saw mill man in this part of the state. His death marks the passing of another of the fast disappearing pioneers of the great Wisconsin lumbering industry.
The funeral will be held Friday at 2:30, from the Congregational Church, Rev. Medlar officiating. Interment in Amery Cemetery.
Arrangements had been started for the celebration of the golden wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Curtiss on October 22 of this year.
