Lyon, Wallace (25 APR 1850 - 9 JAN 1909)

Died, at his home in the town of Loyal, Clark County, Wis. on the twenty-six road on Saturday evening at eight o'clock, Wallace Lyon, of apoplexy at the age of fifty-eight years.

The news of his sudden death came to this village early on Sunday morning and was received with much sadness by those who knew him. When this paper last came to you the deceased was in the best of health, today all that was mortal of our friend and townsman is at peaceful rest in our silent city.

The deceased was not feeling well, being troubled with a slight cold on that evening and was in the act of getting medicine to take for it when he dropped to the floor dead. His wife, hearing the noise of his fall, called and asked him what the trouble was and upon receiving no answer investigated and found him lying on the floor breathing his last. He had just completed a fine new home and was just ready to move into the same when death called him.

He was born in New Jersey on April 25, 1850, and went to Dodge Co., Wis. with his parents in 1854. He came to Clark County, Wis. in 1867 and was married to Miss Utheda Waterbury on June 30, 1882, and settled on the farm where he died.

He was treasurer and chairman of the board of Supervisors of the town of Loyal for several years and also one of the directors of the bank in this village. He was a man of excellent habits, fine moral character and sturdy constitution, and he continued to be active in his accustomed pursuits till long past the age at which men ordinarily drop out of the ranks of the workers. His best monument will be the good report that he ahs left behind him in the community in which he has lived for so many years.

He leaves to mourn his loss a wife, two daughters, Ruby and Adele, and one son, Jesse, three brothers, John of Minnesota, Angelo of Neillsville and William of Loyal, two sisters, Henriette Milligan of Loyal and Harriett Rogers of Oregon.

The funeral services were held at the M. E. Church in this village yesterday afternoon at one o'clock and the remains interred in the M. E. Cemetery.
