Notes


Henry FUNCK

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:
-Henry FUNCK, of South Branch township, was mustered into the membership of Marvin Post, G.A.R. last Saturday night. They still come and there is room for more. (15 Sep 1887)

-BORN-New Year's morning, to Mr. and Mrs. Hugo SCHREIBER, Jr., of South Branch, an eight pound daughter. Hugo is happy and Grand Pa FUNCK weighs nearly a ton. (9 Jan 1902)

-Mr. and Mrs. H. FUNCK of South Branch have the pleasure of the presence of their daughter and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. HINCKLEY of Branch county, home for Christmas, they having moved here last week. (25 Dec 1902)

-A PIONEER GONE HOME.
On Saturday, July 18, Henry FUNCK, of South Branch was mustered out of the ranks of the living, and mustered in to the Grand Army above, where God is the Supreme Commander.
Henry FUNCK was born in Hesse Darmstadt Germany, March 31st, 1835 where he lived until he was 17 years of age, receiving the common education of his country. At that time he came to the city of New York, where he found work as a clerk in a store and later in a hotel. He was married in that city in 1859. His wife died while he was in the army in 1862, no children were born to them. In 1865, after his return from army life he was again married to Susan BOSCH, and to them nine children have been born six of whom are yet living.
He was thoroughly americanized, and readily assimilated the ideas of this government and made himself familiar with its history. At the opening of the war of the rebellion, he offered his services to the country of his adoption, enlisting as a corporal in Co. F., 71st New York Infantry on the 20th day of April 1861, only eight days after the first fateful gun was fired on fort Sumpter. For more than four years he faced the vicissitudes of camp and field and battle shock, never shrinking a duty, however distastful or perilous, meeting every call with the stoicism of his native land, combined with a kindly disposition and sense of humor that made him a loved and trusted comrad. On June 7, 1865 when general orders declared the war closed, he was discharged from the service, as 1st Lieut. of Co. K. 120th New York Vol. to which command he had been transferred with his 1st commission as 2d Lieut. He had worthily won the promotion through the several grades by such service as might well give pride to any man.
Returning to New York City he engaged in the hotel business where he was fairly prosperous, until in 1874 he came to Michigan to engage in agriculture, which had been through life the acme of his hope. He located the Government homestead, where he died, the S E 1/4 Sec. 8, Tp 25 N R 2 W and began the erection of his home in the wilderness of that day. Planing for the future, he started an orchard in his first clearing and the first apples grown in the county were from a tree the seed being planted by him from an apple which he had eaten on his way from the east, which tree is yet bearing fruit, in a comfortable orchard of apples, pears, peaches and cherries which have followed under his care.
The little log cabin which first gave them shelter is changed for a modern commodious dwelling with large barns and the surrounding forest is transformed into broad cultivated fields. His life work must be called a success, his last years being surrounded with comfort and with the respect and confidence of the people among whom he so long had lived. He met the "Grim Reaper" unflinchingly, and lay down to peaceful rest, in the home which he had builded, with all the survivors of his family around him, save one who did not arrive in time.
The final obsequies, on Monday, were conducted at the home by Rev. ETHRIDGE of Roscommon, attended by many of his soldier comrads, and a large concourse of people who followed the casket, which was draped with the "Old Flag" to the South Branch cemetery as a last tribute of respect which they could pay.
The bereaved wife and children, Mrs. Mary C. FUNSCH of Mt. Pleasant, Mrs. Iva C. HINKLEY of Branch county, Mrs. Lillian A. SCHREIBER, living on an adjoining farm and Augustus, Albert E. and Frederic B. at the home, are left with the glad memories of a devoted husband, and a loving father and an honest man.
