Manes, Nathan B. #2 (24 JUL 1847 - 10 MAR 1899)

Nathan B. manes died at the home of his son-in-law, Gus D. Hosley, last Friday afternoon from the effects of an operation for abscess of the intestines, after an illness of several weeks. He was born in Somerset Co., Me., July 24, 1847, came with his father to Watertown, Wis., in the summer of ’56 to Black river Falls, the same fall and to Weston’s Rapids (Clark Co., Wis.) the next spring. He was married to Ella Tracy who died in 1872, was married to Ella Bushnell Jan. 13, 1874, who survives him.

Deceased had spent his life in lumbering on Black River, except for a year, 1887, spent in the same business in Washington. Returned to the West to locate in the spring of 1895, but was discouraged by the hard time then prevailing and came home. He started for Alaska in February 1898, but was taken sick at Ft. Wrangel and compelled to returned to Seattle, where he put in the summer and autumn in the lumber business. The exertions of the journey toward the gold fields were too much for him and his health has been failing ever since his return in November. He was well known through the county and had the respect of all.

He leaves a wife and four children, Mrs. M. Gorman of Rib Lake, Mrs. Gus Hosely of Pine Valley, and Guy and Katie of Abbotsford, all of whom were present at the funeral which occurred from the Presbyterian Church, Rev. R.J. Cresswell officiating. The ceremonies were conducted by the Woodmen Lodge, of which he was a member.

The bereaved relatives desire to extend thanks to all for kindnesses shown.
