Marsh, Lewis A. (10 Mar 1854 - 27 Apr 1912) 

Lewis A. Marsh died last Saturday afternoon at his home at Granton.  He had not been feeling well for some time, but his death was wholly unexpected.  Heart disease was the cause of his demise.  Mr. Marsh was born in Bradford county, Penn., March 10, 1854.  He came with his parents to Clark county in 1857, settling on a farm which later became known as Maple Works and is now Granton.  He lived there ever since with the exception of two or three years which he spent at Stevens Point in the employ of the Wisconsin Central railroad. 

Mr. Marsh was married to Mary B. Johnson at Melrose on May 23, 1883.  To this union six children were born, three sons and three daughters, who with their mother, remain to mourn the death of their father.  Mr. Marsh is also survived by four brothers and one sister: S.M., A.B., J.C., and S.L., and Mrs. J.J. Wright. 

Mr. Marsh was a carpenter by trade and was an industrious and capable workman.  During his life he maintained the highest degree of integrity and attained the confidence and friendship of a large circle of acquaintances. He was a member of the Neillsville Masonic lodge, and also the Beaver and Mystic Worker orders.  He was buried Tuesday afternoon at Granton, the funeral being conducted by the local Masons who attended in a body.  Rev. Mallory also conducted a brief service.  A number of Masonic brethren from Marshfield also attended the funeral.
