John P. HILDRETH

The following information extracted from the Grayling, Crawford Co., MI Newspaper Avalanche. NOTE: The date at the end of each extract indicates the date of the publication:
-MARRIED, at the residence of Chas. E. SILSBY, on Saturday, Jan. 9, J. P. HILDRETH and Mrs. Mary LEWIS, both of Center Plains. Justice D. H. CLARK officiating. The NEWS extends congratulations. - Ros. News. (21 Jan 1892)

-THE REASON WHY.
As my friends may think it strange that I did not attend the funeral of my daughter, in justice to myself, I will say that I did not hear of her sickness or death until one of my neighbors told me of her death, and that the funeral was to be at Cheney Friday afternoon. On Friday afternoon I went to Cheney expecting to attend the funeral and there learned that the funeral was held at Graying, Friday at 10 a.m.
Now as two women in this neighborhood are circulating falsehoods to make it appear that it was my fault that I did not attend the funeral, I trust Mr. WOODBURN will kindly assist me in confuting the falsehoods that have been circulated to my discredit, and oblige a friend,
J. P. HILDRETH,
Cheney, Mich. (18 Apr 1895)

-J. P. HILDRETH, of Cheney, was in town yesterday, as hale and hearty as many a younger man, though a little slow. He celebrates his 78th birthday today. (29 May 1902)

-Mr. and Mrs. A. B. FAILING drove to the residence of J. P. HILDRETH the first of the week with a load of "Christmas cheer," which they had collected. It will be remembered that Mr. HILDRETH is 81 years old, and his wife completely paralized below the waist, so that help is greatly needed in their present condition. The food and clothing which they carried, carried a bright ray of human sunshine to the darkened home. (22 Dec 1904)

-CARD OF THANKS.
PERE CHENEY, DECEMBER 27.
Mr. Editor - I wish, through the medium of your paper, to thank our many friends for the kindness they have extended to us in our sore afflictions during the long and painful illness my wife has suffered for more than a year past, in visiting and cheering her and also in the more substantial tokens which have added so much to her comfort, and for which we tender our warmest thanks.
MR. AND MRS. J. P. HILDRETH. (5 Jan 1905)

-Died-Saturday, March 18, at his home in Beaver Creek, John P. HILDRETH, aged 82 years.
Deceased was one of the pioneers of this county and has been in years past an active factor for the advancement of this section of the state, until his age precluded his doing more than to care for his home. He will be long remembered by our early settlers, his peculiarities forgotten and the good he has done given honor. He leaves an aged wife, who is absolutely helpless, and a sister, Mrs. J. M. SILSBY, also a helpless invalid, to mourn his first going home. They will soon be reunited, with the loved ones who have gone before. The funeral was on Tuesday and his body was laid to rest in the Cheney cemetery. (23 Mar 1905)
