Another former Neillsville boy, Thomas C. Stockwell, son of the late C. S. and Mary A. Stockwell, passed away in an hospital at West Bend, Ore., at seven p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17, 1942.
Mr. Stockwell had been on a hunting trip with the editor of the Dallas, Oregon, newspaper and a brother-in-law of this son-in-law, Joe Griffin, when he was taken severely ill. He was rushed to the hospital where he died the following evening, a victim of cancer of the kidneys.
Mr. Stockwell was born in Onalaska, Wis., June 15, 1877. He is survived by two daughters, Grace and Patricia, both married and living in West Salem, Ore., and by one grandchild, Janet Ann Griffin, who was born August 21st, of this year.
