Weast, Edwin E. (11 DEC 1859 - 10 FEB 1911)
E. E. Weast suddenly passed away at his home in the town of Weston, Clark County, Wis., last Friday morning, Feb. 10, 1911. Mr. Weast appeared to be quite well when he arose on Friday morning, and went to the barn with his son William to do the morning chores. After the milking and feeding of the stock was done, William went to the house for his breakfast, leaving his father feeding a calf. After a short time the members of the household became anxious over his delay and sent William out to look for him. He was found lying near the calf, where he had died from heart failure.
Mr. Weast was a pioneer resident of the town of Weston. He was born Dec. 11, 1859, at Hartford, Wis. In 1871 he moved to Leon, Kansas, with his parents, where he passed his boyhood days and grew into manhood. On Jan. 25, 1853 he was united in marriage to Miss Adah Carnes of Hebron, Wis., and in 1884 came to Greenwood, Wis., and made his home in the town of Weston until his death.
Mr. Weast was a hardy pioneer of the best type, able, honest, and always trying to do right in his dealings with his fellow men. His was a way not often followed by the average man, that of promptness and decisiveness, a fine moral character, and sturdy constitution.
He leaves a wife and four children: Pearl, Lloyd, Ruth, William, an aged mother, two brothers and two sisters; Fred of Ft. Atkinson, Wis., Henry of Leon, Kansas; Mrs. N.W. Wilcox of Leon, Kansas and Mrs. Ed Howard of the town of Weston.
Funeral services were held this afternoon in the Presbyterian Church in this city, Rev. W.T. Hendren officiating. Interment was made in the Greenwood Cemetery.
