  • Name Uriah SLAWSON  [2
    • An Old Settler Suddenly Called

      Mr. U. S. Slawson, aged 72 years suddenly departed this life on Sunday morning Dec. 17, 1899, at about two o'clock.

      The deceased had complained for about a week but his symptoms were not considered alarming as they were periodical, only lasting a few moments, and he continued his usual occupation of barbering Saturday evening up to a few hours previous to his death. Feeling rather poorly he retired at 7 o'clock. At nine he complained of being worse and his wife rendered all relief possible but all was of no avail and he fell asleep in Jesus a few moments past 2 o'clock, of organic heart trouble as pronounced by Dr. J. M. Evans.

      Mr. Slawson was born in Chautauqua Co. N. Y., in 1827. He came to Walworth Co. Wisconsin in 1844 and purchased a farm in Harmony in 1848. In 1850, he moved to Magnolia and in 1863 he came to this city where he has since lived.

      He was married to Miss Sabria McCoy of Magnolia on April 25, 1850, the fruits of which union are a son, Geo. E., whose home is here and a daughter Alice M., wife of Rev. F. N. Eldredge, now residing in Des Moines, Iowa.

      Mr. Slawson has been a christian since early life and had great faith in the God he loved. His many virtues as a good citizen are too well known to need calling to mind. He was a man of a jovial, pleasant nature and gave good cheer to all with whom he came in contact. He will be greatly missed by the entire community but he now has a much better place as a reward for his loving, faithful, christian life.

      The sorrowing wife and children have the deepest sympathy of their large circle of friends in this their sad bereavement.

      The funeral was held from the late home Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 and from the M. E. church of which he was a member at 2:00 o'clock. Rev. Webster Millar officiated, assisted by Revs. H. Sewell, and M. C. Miner.
