Biddle, George Sr. (16 APR 1826 - 20 DEC 1906)

Death, ever present, is a fact constantly making itself manifest. It strikes the young and old, rich and poor, and the pangs it inflicts are measured by character, worth and good deeds of the victim it has laid low. It is our sad duty to chronicle the passing away of a friend and neighbor, than whom none was more estimable. George Biddle, Sr., a man who by his uprightness by ever holding to the golden rule as the guide of his life, was respected by all his fellow men. Mr. Biddle, who has lived alone on his farm about one mile north of the village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.), was found to be quite ill the fore part of last week and his son, Peter Biddle, conveyed him to his home in the town of Reseburg, where he died on Thursday morning Dec. 20, 1906. He was 80 years of age and had been a resident here for nearly twenty-five eyars. Mr. Biddle was born at Manchester, England, April 16, 1826, where he resided until he became of age, and after marriage removed to Cranbrook, Ontario, Canada, where his wife died May 1, 1883, when he removed to this place with his children. The funeral took place on Saturday, Rev. J. B. Bachman officiating, interment taking place in the Reseburg Cemetery.

He leaves to mourn his death five children, Peter, Richard and George Biddle Jr., of this place, Thomas Biddle of Kalispel, Montana, and Mrs. Katherine Rich, of Colorado Springs, Col., who have the sympathy of all in their bereavements.
