Blair, Harry F. (12 FEB 1885 - 27 OCT 1907)

Harry F. Blair died at the home of his mother, Mrs. Laura M. Blair in the village of Humbird, Clark County, Wis. at about two o'clock Sunday afternoon, Oct. 27, 1907, after an illness dating back many months.

On the 20th day of March he returned from South Dakota seriously ill, where he had made his home on his father's ranch during the winter. Since his return he has been confined to bed most of the time. He was a patient suffer, always hopeful but yet resigned to the inevitable, and always cheerful and considerate for those caring for him.

Mr. Blair was nearly twenty-three years of age, born at Gilmanton, Buffalo Co., Feb. 12, 1885. He lived there until nine years of age, when he went with his mother and sister to Fall Creek, making his home with his grandparents on their farm. He stayed there until about two years ago when he came to Humbird, being at the time employed with the railroad masons, which trade he followed until last fall.

On Nov. 20, 1906, he was united in marriage with Miss Alice Andrus, and left soon afterward for Siem, S.D. Here they lived on his father's ranch until he was stricken with Bright's disease, which made such inroads on his health that it was necessary for him to return to Wisconsin.

He was a young man well thought of by his friends, a dutiful son and brother, and a kind husband. He leaves to mourn his early taking away, a wife, a little son, father, mother, sister, and many other relatives, who have the sympathy of all in this sad bereavement.

Short funeral services were held at the home in this village Wednesday morning and the remains were taken to Augusta, where services were held at the M. E. Church, conducted by Revs. Hesse and Fisher, and the interment was in the cemetery at that place.
