Priest, Alonzo K. (3 APR 1814 - 6 OCT 1892)

The death of Alonzo K. Priest occurred at his residence at Loyal, Clark County, Wis. last Thursday, Oct. 6, 1892. Deceased was born in New York on April 3, 1814. He was very well known in this section, having resided here and at Loyal for many years. While here he conducted a restaurant and had charge of carrying the mail from the post office to the depot. His figure was a familiar one to all, and for many years, with a regularity, which became a habit, he trudged up and down the track each morning and evening. After the fire in 1886, he returned to Loyal, where he has since resided. The funeral occurred at Loyal on Saturday and the remains were followed to their final resting place by a very large number. Of him it may be said that he was faithful in the performance of every duty. Enfeebled by years and a long term of sickness, his death was expected. Besides his wife, a son and daughter survive him.
