Jared Fox Babcock, one of the old settlers and highest respected citizens of Jackson county died yesterday morning at 3 o'clock at his home about six miles north of this city, after being ill for nearly two years, being forced to remain in bed a large portion of that time. The cause of his death was given as ______ atixia.
The deceased was born in Delevan, Wis, October 28, 1847 and died Februrary 12, 1919, being 70 years, 3 months and 15 days of age. His father, J. J. Babcock who died a little more than 20 years ago, moved to this county in 1853, first locating near Alma Center. Mr. Babcock had resided in this county ever since that time, devoting his time to farming. He was married in Delton, Wis. June 18 1873, to Miss Pheobe A Dickens, and the widow with eight children survive. The children are; Mrs. John Olson, Albion, Mrs. John M. Matson, Birchwood, Wis.; Mrs. Lewis Updike, Albion; C. D. Babcock, Detroit, Mich.; E. R., town of Alma; J. G., in Germany with the American army, and C. L., town of Alma. One daughter Mrs. Bertha Inderbo, died at her home in Alma about four years ago. Mr. Babcock also leaves one sister, Mrs. E. V. Bailey, Burnett county, 14 grandchildren and many friends in this county.
The funeral services will be held about noon Friday at the home, in charge of Rev. F. R. Harding and interment will take place in the riverside cemetery. Carl is expected to arrive for the funeral and Mrs. Matson will also be here but it will be impossible for Mrs. Maxwell to come.
Though ever very robust or what would be termed a physically active and contented, kind hearted, sympathetic and accomodating and was ever willing to go to any length to help a suffering neighbor or friend. He did not accumulate much wealth, but was scrupulously honest and met all his obligations cheerfully. His friends and his circle of acquaintances were one and the same. He had no enemies unless it might be the few who are in natural antagonism to right doing. On all questrions he always sought the right. Though possessing the natural elements of popularity he never sought political preferment. His pleasant countenance and cheery presence will be sadly missed by his immediate associates.
