Edward Wells Romaine, who died at Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, Saturday, July 29, 1905, was born at Patterson, N.J. Sept 6, 1840. When but a mere boy at the age of 10 he came with his parents to Wisconsin and settled on a farm in Fond du Lac Co., and on Dec. 25, 1862 he was united in marriage to Miss Celia Roscoe. Two years after his marriage he enlisted as a private soldier in the Civil War, and served in Company C of the 14ths Wis. regiment until the close of the war.
In 1868 he and his brother Frank moved with their families to Clark County, Wis. and cut their way through dense forests. They settled on homesteads in the town of Beaver. Here Mr. and Mrs. Romaine resided for nearly a quarter of a century. In 1881 death removed from their family their only son, Robert Edward.
In 1893 Mr. and Mrs. Romaine moved to the village of Loyal, where they have since made their home.
He leaves to mourn his death his devoted wife, four daughters, Mrs. C. H. Brown and Jessie of this village, Mrs. John Graves of Spencer, and Mrs. Edith Ransimer of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Also three brothers, Frank of Chicago, Barney and Ralph, and one sister, Mrs. John Belle, all of Campellsport, Wis., and a host of friends.
Another life is ended Another soul has passed from the sins and corruption of this world to the beautiful beyond. Sorrowing ones are left but not for long. He was a kind father and an affectionate husband and his death is mourned as one who can never be replaced; one who has made a place in the world which will ever remain vacant, but are comforted in the knowledge that for him, all suffering is at an end.
The funeral was held at the residence of C. H. Brown last Saturday forenoon, Rev. A.J. Hill officiating. After the funeral the remains were taken to Neillsville and laid at rest beside his son, Robert.
Hercules Lodge No. 181, I.O.O.F. of Greenwood, of which he was an honored member, assisted by the Neillsville Lodge, took charge of the services at the grave. He was also a member of the G. A. R. of this place.
The relatives from out of town who attended the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. Frank Romaine of Chicago, Barney Romaine and wife, John Bell and wife of Campbellsport, and Mr. and Mrs. John Graves of Spencer.
