Lathrop, Dr. H.A. (26 SEP 1849 - APR 1911)
Dr. H.A. Lathrop, one of Marshfield, Wisconsin’s most prominent pioneer residents, died at his home Sunday afternoon, closing a life of usefulness and successful service to humanity in peace and resignation. Dr. Lathrop had been suffering from incurable heart trouble for over a year, during which he has faced death unflinchingly, knowing that the span of his life could not be prolonged. He spent the past winter in the south and returned ten days ago with a premonition of his approaching end.
The funeral was held Tuesday at 11 a.m. under the ritual of Marshfield Lodge No. 224, F. & A.M., of which the deceased was one of the founders and the first Worshipful Master. After a brief service at the home the remains were escorted by an extensive cortege to the Presbyterian Church, where Rev. H.C. Postlethweaite delivered the sermon, with appropriate choral assistance.
Dr. Lathrop was born at Bedford, Ohio, Sept. 26,, 1849, and spent his early youth in that state. He came to Marshfield in 1880.
