Vine, John George (6 July 1850 - 10 March 1930)

John George Vine, one of the old residents of the town of Grant, died at his home there on Monday, March 10, in his eightieth year. He was born at Buffalo, New York, July 6, 1850, being the son of Robert and Etta Ann Vine. The family moved from Buffalo to Jamestown, N. Y., in 1861. His father having died and the mother being married again to Thomas Huckstead, the family moved west traveling overland in a covered wagon. After stopping a year at Portage they settled at Neillsville in 1862. Here deceased grew to manhood, spending the winters before his marriage working in the woods. He was married to Miss Clara Payne, Feb. 17, 1874 and together they moved on the land which they developed into a good farm and which has been their home ever since. Besides carrying on his farm for several years Mr. Vine followed carpenter work and brick laying.

Mr. Vine was a man of quiet habits much devoted to his farm, home and family. He was a good neighbor, a kind husband and father and a fine type of citizen in every way.

He leaves his wife, one daughter, Mae, Mrs. Herbert Harriman of Alden, Michigan, and one son Clayton on the home farm; also two grandchildren. A son Robert died several years ago at the age of 16 years. He leaves a sister, Elizabeth Benedict of Neillsville and two half-brothers, Arlo A. Huckstead and Alonzo T. Huckstead of the town of Grant.

The funeral will be held at 2 o’clock Thursday afternoon in the Pleasant Ridge church, Rev. G. W. Longenecker and Rev. S. J. Lambright officiating. Burial will talk place in Grant Cemetery.
