-A few evenings ago, a female tramp called at the residence of Dr. NILES, in Ottawa county, and asked for lodging, which was given her. After a hearty breakfast in the morning, she gave thanks and started on, but the family soon missed several articles from the room she had occupied. The Dr. was away, but an adopted daughter, aged 14, started in pursuit of the thief and captured her, compelling her return to the house, where a search of her person revealed some money, jewelry, etc., which she had taken. Other articles that were missing could not be found and the woman denied all knowledge of them, but Miss Winnie was not satisfied, and followed the tramp's wake and discovered the rest of the property where she had hid it in the cemetery. She ought to be added to the detective force at once. (29 Jun 1882)

-Among the arrivals in our city last week were Mrs. Dr. W. H. NILES and daughter, of Eastmanville. The Dr. is developing a farm in Oscoda county and they will take up their residence there in the spring. Mrs. NILES is at present the guest of her sister, Mrs. O. PALMER. ( 22 Feb 1883)

He may be induced to locate in this section, with which he is favorably impressed. (19 Jul 1888)

-Last Wednesday afternoon the commodious and pleasant home of Dr. W. H. NILES, in Oscoda County, was burned with all its contents, entailing a loss of nearly or quiet $4000.00. The Dr. had accumulated a valuable library, which was consumed with all the furniture, pictures, wearing apparel, and one of the finest private collection of sea shells in the state which Mrs. NILES had been collecting for the past forty years. Though he has passed the allotted three score and ten years, he is as ready to begin again, as though he was but twenty, and they will soon be ready, in some way, to greet their friends with the same hospitality that has been characteristic in the past. (10 Mar 1898)

-DIED.
At his home in this village, Friday, June 21, William H. NILES, M. D., aged 83 years.
The deceased was born in a double house, built on the state line between New York and Massachusetts, in Berkshire county, Nov. 29, 1824, where he resided most of the time, until he reached manhood, receiving a liberal education in the common schools and later graduating at the State Normal School in Albany, N. Y. He then began the study of Medicine in New York City, and attended the Medical College at Geneva, N. Y. for two years and followed at the Medical College at Cleveland, Ohio., from which he received his degree of Doctor of Medicine.
He practiced his profession in New York, until 1855, when he came to Michigan and located at Eastmanville in Ottawa county, at that time almost a wilderness and sparcely settled, where for nearly 30 years his life was devoted to the alleviation of human ills. Following the generous instincts of his nature, no man gave more than he in time and money and professional work, in like conditions, to relieve those less fortunate than himself, and though he did not accumulate great wealth, he was satisfied that his life work was well done.
In 1883 he located on a homestead in Oscoda county, just over the line from here, where he built a commodious home and though suffering intensly from rheumatic disease for years, was well content with his books and quiet life until in March 1898 his home with all its accumulations of a lifetime was destroyed by fire. Being too feeble to begin anew, he was persuaded to come to Grayling where he has since resided.
He was a man strong in his opinions, with the courage of his convictions, and especially strong in his religious belief, which cheered him thru all his years of physical suffering, giving him such patience as is seldom witnessed.
He had been twice married, his first wife being called away in 1867, leaving a son, their only child, who died in 1903. he was married to Miss Sarah R. TAYLOR, at Jonesville, Mich. in 1871, who survives him, and with one brother and sister in ottawa county, his daughter-in-law, Mrs. Louise B. NILES and two grand-children, Miss Frieda and Master Arthur residing here, are left to mourn, but better to believe he has received the crown of everlasting life. (27 Jun 1907)
