Perkins, William H. (9 MAY 1848 - 29 OCT 1889)
Wm. H. Perkins, an employee of the Sterling Lumber Co. at Sterling, Clark County, Wis. for the past year, died quite suddenly on Tuesday morning about nine o'clock of heart disease, having been troubled more or less with that complaint for the past fifteen years. Mr. Perkins had enjoyed fair health all summer, though feeling somewhat depressed in spirit the week previous to his death, nothing serious was entertained. Being a member of an Odd Fellows Lodge at Eau Claire some twelve members of the Thorp Lodge escorted the remains to the train on Tuesday evening and two of the members, H. F. Sargent and H. Leobole, accompanied them to Eau Claire, where his own lodge took charge of the remains. The interment took place at Augusta on Wednesday. Mr. Perkins's kind and quiet manner gained him many friends who sincerely regret his untimely death. He was born at Cornwall, C. W., on May 9, 1848, and was therefore 41 years of age, being the oldest of a family of eight children, four boys and four girls, who have all resided in the States for a number of years. His father is dead, but his mother still resides at the place of his birth in Canada. Besides the above mentioned relatives he leaves a wife and two small children, who are left to mourn his death and to whom the sympathy of the entire community is extended in their loss of husband and father.
