The funeral of Mrs. George Gleason was held from the M. E. Church last Friday afternoon, conducted by Rev. A. E. Smith. There was a large congregations present to pay respects to the memory of this pioneer settler and the cortege that followed the remains to their resting place in the Mentor Cemetery was one of the longest ever seen here. Few can realize how rapidly the early settlers are passing from us. It was forty years ago that Mrs. Gleason and her husband, now a feeble old man, settled on the land which they cleared and made into a farm and which has ever since been their home.
Elizabeth Hall was born in Cornwall, Canada, July 11, 1832, and died at her home near Humbird, Clark County, Wis., July 14, 1909, being three days more than 77 years of age.
