Holmes, Albert C. (13 JAN 1851 – 21 Apr 1916)
It was with sincere regret that the news came here Saturday that Al Holmes had died at his home near Lindsey, Mont., on Friday. His daughters, Mrs. L. Howard and Mrs. W.A. Campman, had received word that their father was in a very serious condition, heart trouble being the cause, and they left for Lindsey on Wednesday afternoon, arriving at the Holmes farm a few hours before their father passed away. Albert C. Holmes was born in St. Lawrence County, New York, on Jan, 13, 1851. He came to Clark County in 1871 and settled at Maple Works where he opened up a farm. He was united in marriage to Miss Carrie Downer on Nov. 7, 1877. After living at Maple Works for a short time, Mr. Holmes and his wife moved to Greenwood, living on the Geo. Huntzicker and Mrs. Root farms. About six years ago they moved to Lindsey, Mont., where they lived up until the time of Mr. Holmes’ death. Deceased is survived by his wife, his two daughters and one son, Leslie. Also by one sister, Mrs. Eunice Frasier, of Bellingham, Wash.
Mr. Holmes was a man well known throughout the lower part of this county for he was a man of affable and kindly disposition and made friends readily and had a happy faculty of retaining his friendships. He was a capable man and industrious and his home was at all times a pleasant and happy one.
The remains were brought here Monday and the funeral was held yesterday afternoon, the services being held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W.A. Campman by Rev. Longnecker. Interment was made in the Neillsville Cemetery
