Mr. Joscelyn was born at Reigate, Surrey, England, Feb. 22d, 1820, being somewhat more than 89 years at his death. He came to America in 1844, locating at Columbus,Wis., where he was married to Rebecca McIntyre. June 22,1855. A year after their marriage they came to their present home, where they have continuously resided. His wife survives him, and three children are living, Mrs. W.H.Hunt, Greenwood, Wis., Chas. Joscelyn, Everett, Mass., and Mrs. Alice Ormsby of Oak Park, Ill.
He was an unusual type of man, of more than ordinary knowledge of books, and loving literature poetry and music. He lived a secluded and quiet life, rarely leaving his home, and it is said that he never had been on a railway car, though living so near a railway station. He came of one of the oldest English families, and inherited the best traits of mind, and heart of his ancestry.
Funeral services, conducted by Rev. Pugh, were held Monday, at the home, and interment made in Leon Cemetery.
