-OBITUARY.
Peter VALLAD was born in Monroe, Michigan, May 8th, 1836, and died March 5th, 1906, at the age of almost 70 years.
His had been somewhat of an eventful life. He was left motherless when but two years of age, and lived with a sister at Maumee most of the time until he was 18 years of age, except a few years with his father in Canada, who had married, but died when the boy was but fourteen.
He was first married at Port Clinton, Ohio, to Miss Mary BURNOR and made his home in Ottowa County in that state, from where he enlisted in Co. I, 41st Ohio Inf., leaving his wife with three children, during his term of service. After his discharge they moved to Lucas County, and four years later his wife died leaving him with six children, the oldest being a girl of eleven years who was his housekeeper for a year when she too was taken away and the next one, ten years of age took her place at the head of the household. A year later he met Miss Mary T. BURNOR whom he married in Toledo in February 1880, who is now left to mourn his departure. The names of his two wives were identical, but were not related.
He moved to Blissfield, Michigan, and two years later came to this county, locating in Beaver Creek, which place has since been their home.
He had been a partial invalid for the past two years, his exposure in the army, and while hunting, which he had followed as a business with his advanced age telling upon his naturally robust constitution, until he had ceased active labor.
February 25, he went to visit his son, Isadore in Maple Forest where he was attacked with pneumonia, but was thought to be recovering nicely, and decided to return home March 3rd, but only reached the home of his daughter, Mrs. DUMONT, only three miles on the way, where he was taken with the relapse, and died the second day after, surrounded by his family who had been hastily summoned.
The funeral services were held at St. Mary's Catholic church, in Grayling, Rev. Fr. REISS officiating, and he was buried in Elmwood cemetery in that village.
Beside his wife he leaves seven sons and two daughters with many friends to mourn his loss. (22 Mar 1906)
