John Roe
Died at his home in this village Saturday evening April 14th, after a brief illness of a chronic stomach trouble, aged 70 years.
Deceased was born in Pennsylvania April 9th, 1824. His father died while he was young and he lived with his mother moving to Ontario Co., N.Y., where he remained till he reached manhood. In 1846 he came to Wisconsin, and has ever since made his home in Dane Co., being engaged in farming.
In 1851, Jan. 1st, Mr. Roe was married to Miss Jane McKeeby and to this union three children were reared, Mrs. Wm. Barton, of Albany, G.E. Roe, of Madison, and William, of this village, all being present at his sick bed to administer to his wants.
Last winter Mr. Roe sold his farm south of this village and had moved to town, he being unable to do hard labor, intending to take life easy, but before he had scarcely get settled in his new home he was summoned to his final home beyond. Deceased ranked with our best citizens and by his honest integrity commanded esteem and respect of the community.
The funeral was held from the home on south 3rd St. Monday, Rev. Wm. Rowe conducting the service and the remains were buried in Oak Hall cemetery.
April 19, 1894
