Henry Wallace Stallard, son of John T. and Elizabeth Wilson Stallard, was born Jan. 17, 1862, at Kingston, Wis., and passed away at Eau Claire, where he had made his home with his son and family the past eleven months, on Nov. 5, 1942, at the age of 80 years, 9 months and 18 days.


When he was a small boy the family moved to a homestead west of the village (Humbird, Clark Co., Wis.), and since then this vinicinty has been his home.  He was united in marriage with Miss Ida Stiles of Humbird on Jan. 17, 1884, at Augusta, and to this union three children were born, two daughters and one son.

Mrs. Stallard passed away Aug. 2, 1933, just a few months previous to their golden wedding anniversary.  Since that time Mr. Stallard maintained his home alone and continued in active labors until stricken with illness about three years ago.


Surviving him are his three children, Ethel F., Mrs. Ira Sherwin of Merrillan, John H. of Eau Claire, and Maude L., Mrs. E.O.

Pierstorff officiating.  The scripture reading was the 90th Psalm and the third verse was used as a text for the sermon.  Three sacred duets, "The Old rugged Cross," "Lead Kindly Light," and "Beautiful Isle" were sung by Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Waters, with Miss Simons accompanist.  Many beautiful flowers ex
