The Mulhall Enterprise
Friday, February 6, 1903

James Monroe Tressler was born in Pittsburg, Penn., on the 20th day of November, 1856. He removed to Minnesota with his parents while yet a child and after completing the common schools, he returned to his former home and attended the medical college, from which he graduated at the age of 22 years, as a veterinary surgeon. After graduating he returned to Minnesota where he practiced his profession, and took care of his mother till her death and by her request, took his two sisters and provided for them until their maturity.
He was married to Grace Carlton in 1892, from which union two children were born, Gladys and Lyal, who with the wife remain to mourn their loss.
Mr. Tressler's profession often called him away from home, but he always returned at the earliest opportunity for he greatly enjoyed the home life. He was a kind husband and a loving father. He always had good neighbors for he was a good neighbor himself. His health failed in Minnesota and he moved to Nebraska in 1893, remaining there until again failing health compelled him to remove farther south, when he came to Oklahoma where he lived on his farm till his death, which occurred on Jan. 25, 1903 after a sickness of about two weeks.
At about the age of 15 years he united with the Methodist church in which church he remained until his marriage when he joined the Freewill Baptist, the church to which his wife belonged. During his final sickness he often talked of his spiritual condition and gave unquestionable evidence of his acceptance of God. His last words were of thankfulness for the kindness of his neighbors, asking that God might bless them.
The funeral services were conducted at the home of deceased, seven miles west and two miles south of Mulhall, Rev. Mark White officiating. The Odd Fellow order performed the burial services at Crescent City.
