Stacy, Fred (25 SEP 1884 - 17 AUG 1903)
Died, at the home of his sister, Mrs. J.P. Johnson, Monday noon, Aug. 17th, 1903, from inflammation of the brain following an abscess, Mr. Fred Stacy, in the 19th year of his age.
Fred was born in Ortonville, Minn., Sept. 25th, 1884, came to Wisconsin with his father in 1891, and lived in Curtiss, Clark Co., Wis., about one year and a half, but has since made Colby his home. He leaves to mourn his death his father, Charles Stacy, a sister, Mrs. James P. Johnson, in this city, and two brothers and a sister in Montana.
Fred was a good hearted, honest young man and a faithful worker. He held a position in M. Bast’s pop factory from January until July 27th, when he quit there to go to Minnesota with his brother-in-law, J.P. Johnson, to work through harvesting and threshing, but being bothered with a pain in his ear, the trip was postponed from day to day. He was finally confined to his bed and was a very sick boy up to the time of his death.
The funeral was held from the M.E. Church Wednesday forenoon at 10 o’clock, Rev. W.M. Philpott officiating, and the remains laid to rest in the Colby Cemetery, by the side of his brother Emery, who was asphyxiated in a well Aug. 15, 1899.
