DEATH OF GRANDPA HOYT.
At 4 o'clock last Saturday morning, September 9, 1899, the spirit of Grandpa Albert Hoyt passed out from among the living, at the home of his son Willard. He has long been a sufferer from kidney trouble, and for the past nine months has been confined to his room. The end was very peaceful and was momentarily expected for sometime. The remains were shipped on the morning train to the old home in Missouri, where his wife and other relatives are buried.
Albert Hoyt, was born in Genesee county, N.Y., January 14, 1818. Soon afterward his parents moved to Trumble county, Ohio, where he remained with his parents until 12 years of age and then the family removed to Portage county, Ohio, where Albert grew to manhood on the farm. Young Albert traveled over various states "sowing his wild oats," finally settled in Adams county, Illinois, in 1844, where he engaged in farming until 1866, then removed to Lewis county, Missouri, where he again engaged in farming until 1876, removing then to St. Clair county, Missouri, where he again engaged in stock raising and farming. Mr. Hoyt was elected county judge of this county and served two years. In 1846 he enlisted in the Mexican army and served two years. In 1892 he removed to Mulhall where he has since resided with his son Willard. At the time of his death he was 81 years, 8 months and 26 days old.
THE ENTERPRISE will miss Grandpa Hoyt, as everybody here who enjoyed his acquaintance. He was a regular visitor at our office when he was able to walk out, and his conversations were always full of interest to us. Truly Grandpa Hoyt was a man whom it was profitable to know. To those who mourn his death, we offer sincere expressions of sympathy. "The man dies, but his memory lives."
