Colby, Jesse E. (13 Augl 1870 - 28 Feb 1903)

Jesse Elery Colby died at his home Feb. 28, 1903. He was born in Easton, Adams So, Wis., Aug. 13, 1870, and came with his parents to Clark County, Wis. when nine years of age. July 4, 1898 he was married to Annie Emma Limprecht. Two children were born to them, Norman Elery, June 4, 1899, and Amy Sophia, Nov. 21, 1900. Although his illness had been lingering for some time we were greatly surprise to hear of his sudden death. We feel deeply the loss of our beloved friend and neighbor. His life has been that of an honest and true man, a loving husband and father. During the last hours of his illness he was a patient sufferer, til death took him from us. He leaves a wife and two children, besides a father, mother, three brothers and two sisters to mourn his loss. We all extend our heartfelt sympathy to these friends in their sorrow. Funeral services were held at the house at 1 p.m. on Monday, conducted by Pastor A. Bell.
