Pierson, Samuel W. (18 MAR 1865 - 18 MAY 1910)
Samuel William Pierson died of acute spinal meningitis, at his home in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) on Wednesday, May 18, 1910, aged 45 years and 2 months. He was born in Ireland on March 18, 1865, coming to this country alone in 1878. He was united in marriage with Miss Maud Bancroft at Chippewa Falls in 1897, moving to this village soon after, where he has since resided.
Although Mr. Pierson was a member of no church, he exemplified a pure and honorable life, the teachings of the golden rule. His life was gentle, but like the still waters it was deep. In his heart he carried those he loved, and his hand was never weary, his step never failed in ministering unto, caring for, and waiting upon those who were in any way dependent upon him.
He was a faithful member of the Mystic Workers and Modern Woodmen, in each of which societies he carried $1000 insurance. He leaves a devoted wife and four children, John, Mary, Robert and Irene, three brothers, John of Jamestown, N.D., Tom of Hope, N.D., Robert, and one sister who resides in Florida.
The funeral took place on Friday last at 2 p.m. from the M. E. Church, Rev. J. B Bachman officiating, burial taking place in the Thorp Village Cemetery.
