-DIED-In Beaver Creek township November 27th at 7 o'clock a. m., Mr. Fred SHOLTS, an old pioneer of this county, at the age of 56 years, 5 months and 9 days. Never were the neighbors and friends of the deceased more shocked than when they heard of the sudden death of one of our most esteemed citizens, Mr. SHOLTS, a pioneer of this county. Mr. SHOLTS or "Fred" as he was usually called by those who knew him, old and young, and he was known far and near by his good nature and joking ways. Fred was born, while his parents were crossing the Atlantic ocean, June 19, 1853. His parents were coming from Germany to this country and to this state where they settled in the wilderness near what is now known as Fowler, in Clinton county, and there cleared and made for themselves a nice farm home. At the age of 17 Fred started out for himself. He first took to railroading, then he worked in the pine woods winters and in the saw mills summers, most of the time in Saginaw county. At the age of 23 years he was married to Miss Belva LOVE, of St. Charles, second daughter of the late Probate Judge LOVE, of Grayling. Six children five daughters and one son were born to them and all are living, the oldest, Charles, who lives in Minnesota; Alice WILBUR, living at Frederic; Laura WALLACE, living at Roscommon; Bessie, Dora and Gladys, who are home with their mother, all of whom feel deeply the loss of a kind father, and while they mourn they have the heartfelt sympathy of all their neighbors and friends who feel that they have lost a good citizen and neighbor, and one who was always ready to give and help the needy and was charitable all through life, one who gave freely to all good causes for pleasure and the cause of Christ. While not a believer as some do, he always gave a helping hand. Of his family there are left an aged mother, a brother and a sister at their old home. The brother and his wife with the sister and her daughter were at the funeral, but the mother was too feeble to come. Fred came to Crawford county from St. Charles, Saginaw county, 31 years ago and settled on the E 1/2 of S E 1/4 of sec. 20 in town 25 N 3 W, which today is one of our best farms, for Fred was thorough in all his farm work and an up to date farmer who always had a good word for northern Michigan and this county. Long may his good deeds, especially his charitable acts, be remembered. He belonged to the Center Plains Arbor of Gleaners and the Roscommon Grange no. 1166, in both of which his presence will be missed. (2 Dec 1909)
