AUSTIN P. WATERHOUSE OBITUARY 1-23-1908 Post #107 Granite Falls
Austin P. Waterhouse was born in Kentucky, Feb. 14, 1828, died at Granite Falls, Washington January 23, 1908. He was taken to Texas in early childhood and remained there until he grew up, moving to Indiana when he was a young man. He was married in 1860 to Miss Jane Goodwill. To the union there were born eleven children, of whom five are still living, two daughters in Mi., two sons in Oregon, and a daughter, Mrs. Fred Savage, living in Granite Falls. Mr. Waterhouse enlisted in Co. C 44th Indiana Volunteers at the outbreak of the war, in 1861. He served with the rank of color sergeant until April 6, 1862, when he was wounded at the battle of Shiloh, losing an arm. He was discharged; and as soon as he was able to resume active duty he entered the provost service in which he continued until the close of the war. He spent a portion of his life in Mi. and Oh., coming to Granite Falls in March, 1899. He lived here until his death. He was a member of the Elks, G.A.R. and Ladies of the G.A.R., and took a prominent part in the Grand Army activities in the county. In politics he was a "Democrat", and served as justice of the peace for several years, being elected on the democratic ticket. Since the incorporation of Granite Falls he has served as police judge, excepting for a short time when he was unable to attend to the duties of the office on account of illness.
