-OBITUARY.
Died at his home in this village, Tuesday, January 7th., Alfred H. WISNER, aged sixty years, of Heart failure.
The deceased was one of the pioneers of this county, having located on a homestead in the southern part of this township in 1880, where he resided until about eight years ago, when he came here to live. He was born in Newfane, Niagara Co., N. Y., Sept. 17th., 1841, and was married to Miss Jane PORTER, March 19th., 1863, and soon after came to Michigan. He leaves the wife and five children: Burton J., of Holly, Mich.; Mrs. Sarah WILSON, of Coldwater; Mrs. Mary Etta STREITMATTER, of Beaver Creek; Byron T., who is at home, and Mrs. Luella METCALF, of Grayling, with many friends to mourn his sudden demise.
His death was entirely unexpected as with the exception of a cold, he had been in usual health to the hour of his death. He had worked as usual during the day, attended to his chores and eaten his supper with his family, after which he complained of pain in his lungs and feeling faint, took a rocker and leaning back his heart ceased its work and he was dead.
He enlisted in June 1861, in Co. G, N. Y. Cavalry, and was discharged in March '62. He joined Marvin Post G. A. R., in July 1893, and for the last year was Commander of the Post. He was a man who will be greatly missed by his associates.
"'Tis the wink of an eye, 'tis the
draught of a breath,
From the blossom of health to the
paleness of death.
From the ilded salon to the bier
and the shroud,
Oh! why should the spirit of mortal be proud?" (9 Jan 1902)
