Nason, William G. (24 Jan. 1834 - 16 June 1926)
Services will be held at Nasonville Saturday for William G. Nason, pioneer settler in the northwestern part of Wood county and father of Miss Callie Nason and Burt Nason of this city, who died Wednesday night at the home of his son, Warren Nason, at Nasonville. Mr. Nason, who came to the town of Lincoln before the first house was built on the present site of the city of Marshfield, was 92 years of age. He had been a resident of Wood County for 72 years.
The funeral will be held at the Warren Nason home at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning, with burial in the Nasonville cemetery.
Besides his son and daughter here, and the son with whom he lived at Nasonville, Mr. Nason is survived by two sons living in the west, Rolla, Lewiston, Ida., and Edward, Seattle, Wash. There are also seventeen living grandchildren.
Born at Portland, Me., January 23, 1834, Mr. Nason came to Wisconsin in 1854 and at first engaged in logging with his brother, S. L. Nason, now dead, on the Yellow river and the east branch of the Black river. He finally settled at Nasonville which was named in his honor.
At one time he carried mail between Nasonville and Neillsville, Wis. In 1865 at Windfall, now known as Granton, Clark county, Mr. Nason married Harriet Renne, who died five years ago.
