Crane, Jesse (12 APR 1826 - 2 OCT 1922)

Mr. Jesse Crane was born in the state of New York, April 12, 1826. He spent his early life on a farm and as a blacksmith. He enrolled in the Union Army of the Civil War as a member of Co. B, 179th Regiment of the Pennsylvania militia, Oct. 16th, 1862, and served a little over nine months, being honorably discharged July 27, 1863.

After the close of the war he came to Wisconsin and spent the remainder of his life around Clark County, Wis.

On Nov. 13, 1880 he was united in marriage to Mrs. Mary Pounder of Greenwood, she preceded him in death twenty years ago last April.

He worked for years in the logging camps about here and has literally waded every foot of Black River from Withee to Black River Falls in the log drives. The past twenty years of his life were spent in enfeebled health and though he has never known sickness he has been unable to do much work, but gradually yielded to advanced years until death finally overtook him Oct. 2nd, 1922, at the ripe old age of 96 years, 5 months and 19 days.
