-At Anderson, Indiana, Wednesday December 4th., of Typhoid Fever, Winfield L. EICKHOFF, aged 23 yrs, and 11 months.
Winfield Louis EICKHOFF was born in Grove, Allegany County, N. Y., Dec. 4th., 1877. He came with his parents to Michigan, who soon after settled in Grayling, in 1892. He united with the Protestant Methodist Church when twelve years of age, and with the M. E. Church, by letter, in 1892, of which he remained a loyal faithful member. Wherever he was he identified himself with the church interest, being prominent in all church work. He loved the Sunday School, the prayer meeting, class meeting, Epworth League and the Young Men's Christian Association, and was highly esteemed on account of his pure life, his manly christian character, and his activity in all their helpful work. He was a member of the graduating class of the Grayling High School of 1897. He also graduated from the Bliss Business College of Flint, Michigan, last June. Soon after he accepted a position as instructor in the Bliss Business University, in Anderson, Indiana. He had found his chosen work and was putting his whole heart in it, and was hopeful and ambitious for the future, and was growing in the esteem of all connected with the University, when death found him, and The Lord Jesus took him to his eternal home. The saddest feature was that his father, mother, sister and brother, and the christian young lady to whom God had united him in unity of heart, could not be present to comfort him in this final struggle.
He leaves to mourn his departure, his father and mother, Charles and Fannie E. EICKHOFF; grandmother, Mrs. Elizabeth N. DEREICH; a sister, Mrs. Henrietta E. TAYLOR, wife of Rev. S. G. TAYLOR, of Vernon, Mich., a brother, Arlington J. EICKHOFF, instructor in the state school for the Deaf and Dumb, at Flint, Mich., Mrs. Catharine M. SCHLENK, of Buffalo, N. Y., and Miss Grace EDDY, of Flint, Mich., all of whom were present at the funeral, which was held at the M. E. church, in Grayling, December 8th., and Rev. Howard C. GOLDIE, the pastor, preached the sermon. (5 Dec 1901)

-Many of the veterans of Michigan will be grieved to learn of the death, at Lansing, on the 27th. inst., of Rev. Geo. TAYLOR, father of Rev. S. G. TAYLOR, former pastor of the M. E. Church here. Rev. TAYLOR was chaplain of the 8th. Mich. Inf., and was one of the chaplains who was honored by the men as a brave soldier and the soldier's friend. He has, ever since the war been often called to address the people at reunions and soldier's gatherings, and was of the greatest help in raising money for the erection of the soldier's monument in Detroit. At 87 years of age, he is mustered into the Grand Army above.

-DIED -
September 28th., at the home of her daughter; in Savannah, N. Y., Mrs. Fanny ROSE, aged 70 years.
The sad news as above was received here Monday morning, and though it was known for some days that she was critically ill; yet the blow came as it always does with a crushing suddenness. Fanny DOUGLAS was born in Savannah, where she died, April 27th., 1832, and was married to Asa J. ROSE in 1851. After the war of the rebellion, through which the husband and father served with honor, while the patriotic mother cared for the little ones without a murmur, they moved west and in 1881 located in this village, where they have ever held prominent place in society and in the affections of our citizens until the death of Mr. ROSE, in 1897. Since that time Mrs. ROSE has divided her home life between the children here and those in New York. A number of years ago an accident rendered her unable to continue the full social life of the past, but the love of her many friends tendered her such kind attention as made her last years pleasant, even with the intense physical suffering at times endured. She leaves two brothers, and two sisters, and her children, F. B. ROSE, of South Butler, N. Y; Mrs. Ida EVANS, of Oakland, Cal.; Mrs. Jeannette WOODWORTH, Grayling; Mrs. Katharine EVANS, Savannah, N. Y., and Fred G. ROSE, Waynesburg, Pa.
Her body was brought home yesterday, accompanied by F. G. ROSE and Mrs. Katharine EVANS, and will be laid beside her husband in our cemetery this afternoon, the funeral services being held at 2 o'clock.
"Not dead but entered into life!
The warfare past, the victory won;
Oh friends who loved her, try to say
'Dear Father may Thy will be
She lives, she lives forever." (done,') (2 Oct 1902)

- OBITUARY
October 11th, 1896. This is the saddest day of my life.
Warren P. ROSE died Oct. 7th 1895 at Denmark, Lee County, Iowa.
This mornings mail brought me the sad news of my brothers death. Oh how disappointed I am, as I expected him here in a few days. I anticipated the enjoyment of his association all winter, and expected he would remain with us the balance of his life, and now to have our hopes, our anticipations lost forever.
My oldest brother, Isaac ROSE, lost his life at Pea Ridge, Ark. in defense of our old flag and american homes, but that was the casualty of war, that he and I took at our risk, as all of our comrades know by experience. But now how different it seems, that in a time of profound peace with all nations, and no signs of war at home or abroad, that a life has gone out, and that life should be my brothers. It is the first death in our family since 1840, except the brother above mentioned.
Warren P. ROSE was born in Onondagaa Co., N. Y., in 1826. Our parents moved to Illinois in 1833, our mother died in 1838, and in 1840 our father died, since which time our family has been hale and hearty. No Dr., to my knowledge, has ever been called to minister to any one of us. My brother, belonged to Grayling Chapter F. & A. M. He lived and practiced the Golden Rule and believed in the grat brotherhood of man. His life went out like a candle, no regrets or complaint and no struggle. He is at rest.
A. J. ROSE (15 Oct 1896)

-A. J. ROSE was stricken with a repetition of his heart trouble, last Monday and his condition was so serious that his children were notified. Mrs. EVANS arrived from New York, last evening, and Fred will arrive from Virginia to-day. While the condition is not entirely beyong hope, it is very critical. (15 Jul 1897)

-Comrade W. J. JUBB, of Gaylord, came down to attend the funeral of A. J. ROSE. They have been intimate friends for years. (3 Feb 1898)

-Comrade C. B. JOHNSON of Maple Forest missed the train south last Saturday, but came on, on foot, to join the G.A.R. Post here, to which he belongs, in paying their last tribute of respect to A. J. ROSE, who was "mustereed out." (3 Feb 1898)

-RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT.
At a special encampment of Marvin Post. No. 240, Grand Army of the Republic, held on Saturday evening, Jan. 29th., 1898, the following preamble and resolutions were presented and adopted:
SHEREAS, The Supreme Commander of the Universe, in his unquestioned wisdow, has mustered out of our ranks, Comrade A. J. ROSE, a member of this Post, who formerly served in the 126th. New York Infantry, and who through his life did worthily honor the cause for which we fought, the memories we cherish, the flag we salute and the Grand Army to which we belong. Therefore be it
RESOLVED - That while we bow in submission to his will, and mourn the departure of our comrade, we are pleased to feel and know that his earthly trials and tribulations are ended, and that he has gone to that country where the anger of cannon no longer burdens the air; where the gleam of sabre and bayonet no longer blinds the eyes, and where the passions of war is forever stilled; yet our heartfelt sympathy is given to the widow and children whose right it is to mourn.
RESOLVED - That a copy of these resolutions be presented to the widow of our deceased comrade; that a copy be spread upon the records of the Post, and that they be published in the County papers, as a mark of our fraternal regard.

-IN MEMORIAM.
DIED - At his home in this village, Thursday, January 27th., Asa J. ROSE, aged 71 years.
Deceased was born in Onandaga County, N. Y., Dec. 21st., 1827. He was left an orphan at the age of eleven years, since when he depended on his own exertions to sustain himself, to rear his family, and to become as he did, a self respecting, and a respected citizen of this great Nation. Nature gave him a powerful constitution, and great natural ability, which he used to such advantage, that, though in his earlier years he labored under a load of friendless poverty, he obtained a liberal education, broader than that of many men, though less technical, and became a master of mechanic arts. A love of nature has ever kept him in close touch with agricultural pursuits, and he has long enjoyed the pleasure of agricultural experiments. He has lived in the rocky East, on the rolling prairies of the West, and amid the mining wilds of Mexico, with varied fortune, but ever sustaining the best of all, his manhood. - When Secession threatened, he opposed it, and when Rebellion followed, he left home and family and all, a willing sacrifice, if need be, on the altar of his country. Only his comrades can know the life of those years in camp and field, in bivouac and battle, and in the prison pen, from which he came, yet strong, through broken, and took up again the taskes and trials of civil life, with the same courage of his convictions that marked him as a man unusually positive in every move. He came to this county in 1881, and made his home from which he was taken to his final rest, and had done much towartd the development of this section. He leaves the wife of his youth and his manhood, three daughters and two sons to revere his memory.
The service at the residence on Sunday, condutcted byh Rev. R. L. COPE, assisted by Rev. MAWHORTER, Post chaplain, were very impressive, and he was buried by his comrades of Marvin Post, in accordance with their ritual, as he desired.
Another comrade has been mustered out,
"Rest,
Rest the patriot hear,
That never quailed with fear
In treason's fiery test." (3 Feb 1898)

-RESOLUTIONS OF CONDOLENCE.
In behalf of the members of Marvin Relief Corps we present the following resolutions;
WHEREAS it has pleased our Heavenly Father in His divine providence to call from our midst the beloved husband and father of our esteemed sisters, Fannie ROSE and Jeannette WOODWORTH, therefore be it

-DIED -
September 28th., at the home of her daughter; in Savannah, N. Y., Mrs. Fanny ROSE, aged 70 years.
The sad news as above was received here Monday morning, and though it was known for some days that she was critically ill; yet the blow came as it always does with a crushing suddenness. Fanny DOUGLAS was born in Savannah, where she died, April 27th., 1832, and was married to Asa J. ROSE in 1851. After the war of the rebellion, through which the husband and father served with honor, while the patriotic mother cared for the little ones without a murmur, they moved west and in 1881 located in this village, where they have ever held prominent place in society and in the affections of our citizens until the death of Mr. ROSE, in 1897. Since that time Mrs. ROSE has divided her home life between the children here and those in New York. A number of years ago an accident rendered her unable to continue the full social life of the past, but the love of her many friends tendered her such kind attention as made her last years pleasant, even with the intense physical suffering at times endured. She leaves two brothers, and two sisters, and her children, F. B. ROSE, of South Butler, N. Y; Mrs. Ida EVANS, of Oakland, Cal.; Mrs. Jeannette WOODWORTH, Grayling; Mrs. Katharine EVANS, Savannah, N. Y., and Fred G. ROSE, Waynesburg, Pa.
Her body was brought home yesterday, accompanied by F. G. ROSE and Mrs. Katharine EVANS, and will be laid beside her husband in our cemetery this afternoon, the funeral services being held at 2 o'clock.
"Not dead but entered into life!
The warfare past, the victory won;
Oh friends who loved her, try to say
'Dear Father may Thy will be
She lives, she lives forever." (done,') (2 Oct 1902)
