Nicholas V. Chesebro Chilton Times July 28, 1894

Our vicinity has been visited again by the hand of death which has taken from our midst one of our pioneer settlers. During the past six months six persons have been summoned across the river and in all cases the end was reached with but a moment's notice. The last to hear the roll call was Nicholas V. Chesebro, who died at an early hour on Madison Street after a brief illness. On Saturday last Mr. Chesebro was down town and seemed as jolly and ready to joke or argue with his friends and acquaintances as ever. Shortly after returning to his home he complained of not feeling right and a physician was summoned. All that medical aid could do was performed, but to no avail and he died on Thursday. Mr. Chesebro was a good man and will be missed by many of our citizens. He was always to be found in the crowd that liked a good time and was a man who could take a joke with a relish. He was an honest upright citizen and no man can say that he ever knowingly did him an injury.
Mr. Chesebro was born in Otsego County, N. Y., Feb. 6, 1825. He came to Wisconsin in 1846 and located in the town of Brothertown. The following year he located on the farm on which he resided until his death. He was a man who enjoyed life in his way and during the pioneer days succeeded in working up a splendid farm for himself and family, but also engaged in outdoor sport and hunted and trapped all through this section which was then a dense wilderness.
He was a member of the 48th Wisconsin Regiment and served during a portion of the last war. He will be missed by the old soldiers, because no gathering was complete without Mr. Chesebro.
His funeral took place today, (Saturday) and his remains were laid at rest beside his wife who died about one year ago. Four sons, two brothers and four sisters are left to mourn his death.
