Obit from Rosemary Mohnsam, 10 July 2012 {Thank You Rosemary}:
"Stockbridge: One after the other of our old settlers and pioneers of Calumet county pass away and we are called on to chronicle this week the death of Mr. Ephraim Dart, of Stockbridge, who passed away last Sunday afternoon at his home in the village. Two years ago he had a stroke of paralysis and in the mean time was threatened with apoplexy but was kept in fairly good health all the time though he was not able to get about very much. Saturday morning he had another stroke of the dreaded disease and was made unconscious thereby, in which state he passed away very peaceably into the life beyond without apparent pain or suffering. Mr. Dart was born in Genesee county, New York, in 1827 on Sept 19th, where he spent his boyhood days. In 1859 he was married to Miss Lydia Dart, soon after which they came west to Wisconsin and settled near Taycheedah, Fond du Lac county, after which they came to Stockbridge and settled a mile and a half north of the village. His wife preceded him in death five years ago leaving his son Theron and daughter Effie to comfort him in his old age. Last fall they moved to Stockbridge where they have occupied the Dudley place. Deceased was accommodating and hospitable and in late years took an active interest in the religious life, uniting with the Congregational church and expressing much joy in the hope of the life to come. A large concourse of friends assembled at the church on Tuesday afternoon to pay tribute to the deceased. The choir sang appropriate songs and Mrs. W.W. Christie and Rev. S. G. Ruegg gave brief testimonies to his life and his character with encouraging words to those that mourn his loss. Interment was at the Brant cemetery. Our sympathy is extended to the bereaved."
