Alton, Charles (4 SEP 1863 - 16 APR 1935)

Charles Alton, 71, resident of the village of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), died at his home there, Tuesday evening. He had been in failing health for the past several weeks, but had not been confined to his bed, and his death was sudden, resulting from a heart attack.

He had been a resident of that village for a great many years, moving there from Maplehurst, where he had been engaged in farming. After coming to Withee he entered the dray business, and continued that work until a few years ago. He had been active in civic affairs and at numerous times held public office.

He is survived by his widow. Funeral services took place this afternoon from Sacred Heart Catholic Church, at 3:30 o’clock, and burial took place in Riverside Cemetery.
