While it was known he was in failing health, yet none thought he was so near death's door. The funeral was held from his home Tuesday, Nov. 12, at 1 o'clock conducted by Rev. Mr. Carpenter, of Hiawatha. Burial was made in Hamlin cemetery by the side of his wife who had preceded him some 19 years. ..."
